I had intended to write this review over a month ago. My family stayed at Bella Vista for nearly two weeks, while my wife was recovering from a broken ankle. We had never intended on going to Invercargill and the Catlins region during our vacation. We had a wonderful stay there and found the hosts, Selby and Janelle, excellent and... More

Great people with a good sense of humour welcomed me and showed me to a room with a big bath and comfortable bed...... This is a great choice if your ever in Invercargill for sure! Plenty of parking and near to town. On highway 1 but not noisy. Newish units and good furnishings making it a refreshing stop over. Thanks

We stayed here overnight. I needed an early checkin and all contact beforehand was friendly and helpful - this continued when we arrived. Really lovely people, was nice to feel so welcome. Efficient checkin/checkout. Room was a bit small, but completely fine for the price. Particularly pleased to find the TV had Prime so we could watch the cricket. Nice... More

We arrived late on New Year's Eve and it was wet and windy. Janelle was great in settling us in, booked a restaurant for us for dinner, arranged an early breakfast and provided directions to the airport for our trip to Stewart Island the next morning.

Stayed here in November while working in Invercargill and have just stayed another night while visiting family. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and excellent value for money. Selby and Janelle demonstrate what southern hospitality is all about! Our first choice for accommodation in Invercargill now.
