Neil was amazing- hospitable, knowledgeable and very accommodating. A credit to hospitality! Lovely amenities, clean, comfortable and handy position. Easy walk to fantastic restaurant - saucy chef. Neil organised a cortesy van for us however which was also awesome. We were on motorbikes so it was great to know the carpark had cameras and also out of sight parking.

Excellent room, clean, quiet and warm. I arrived on an unseasonably cold evening and found the room heated and ready for me. This motel is located a short walkable distance from the CBD and there are several very pleasant routes to passing through or beside some of the parks for which Invercargill is famous

We have stayed at several Bella Vista Motels and this one isn't any different to the others. The unit was exceptionally clean & well appointed. I fully recommend this motel. The manager was pleasant and accommodating and made recommendation on restaurants etc. I fully recommend this motel.

Have stayed here a number of times for work trips now and I highly recommend it. Modern, clean rooms, the bed is very comfortable, during winter the heater was left on prior to arrival to ensure the room was warm enough.

Great motel. Good service offered by the motel manager. Very flexible management who were very helpful. Great location next to Burger King restaurant. Easy walk to the stadium. Also easy walk to town. We didn't need a taxi after finishing up late in town and walked home easy.
