I stayed in this motel over two years ago and swore I would not return, but fortunately there has been a long overdue change in circumstances and new faces. This trip it was an absolute pleasure to stay here, the wonderful service I have become accustomed to while staying in local Bellavista's has returned to this one. Super friendly and... More

Thank-you Steve F for your encouraging words. The transition of this Bella Vista Invercargill is still in it's infancy with many more improvements to come. New carpet , bedding and bed linen is completed. New Tiles and vinyl is on its way. New furniture, painting and redecorating is now underway and then there will be a few more nice surprises... More

Stayed for a week in a newly renovated room, One of the most comfortable motel beds I have ever stayed in. Brand new carpet. Nice place close to town. Hosts (and the cat) are very friendly and accommodating. One draw back is there is no cooked breakfast option. I'll be back.

Stay here when on business trips to Invercargill, hosts are always very accommodating. This is a classic Bella Vista - the chain has a good standard and hosts add their own touches. Handy location - able to walk into town for dinner to the supermarket. On shuttle run from airport which meets every flight and you don't need to book... More

We recently spent six nights here and had to have a 'cot' shifted into the room. That I can accept. What I cant accept is that when we asked if we could have a topper pad because the cot was like lying on the floor - the proprietors acknowledged that they knew they were hard and told us to just...

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. It certainly was extremely disappointing to hear that you felt our service was not up to standard. We certainly pride ourselves on offering excellent service to all of our guests however on this occasion we seem to have dropped the ball based on your feedback therefore please accept our sincere apologies....

We stayed at the BellaVista Motel for one night, having already been booked in at another motel further out of town (which was filthy), hence the move to BellaVista. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly chap who was very accommodating. He even gave the kids one free hour of Hot Spot useage! We had an upstairs room, with... More

A friendly host. A very clean and functional large studio unit. Colour scheme is standardised for what we found out is a nationwide chain of dependable offerings. They threw in a short connection to the Internet which was handy for checking email [Wifi is still a limited offering in much of NZ]. It is on the main road out of... More

Just a quick overnight stay - we arrived late evening to a lovely warm and cosy room. Glenda was very accommodating and had left our breakfast for the morning in the room as well. Clean and tidy rooms - great service. The Motel is located on the drive into Invercargill and is very central to the city centre. Restaurants, petrol... More

Having stayed at a number of Bella Vista's, they are what they are. Clean, tidy, but small and ordinary. Check out was friendlier than check in but overall it was just a motel. If you get it for a good price than it will do just fine. Did stay in a studio room so others may have been better.

This new looking motel is on the main road out of Invercargill with a Pub directly opposite the front door serving food. The welcome could not have been more friendly and helpful.
