Being a travelling sales rep, I stay at a number of motels around the country. The Bella Vista Invercargill is by far the best of the best. Not only are the rooms well maintained, clean and comfortable, but the owners make you feel like family. They always have the heating on before you arrive so your room is cosy as... More

Bella Vista Invercargall was definitely one of the best places we stayed while away. The room was lovely and big and clean. Joan was great with her advice and nothing was too much trouble. Would happily stay again and recommend to others. Other Bella Vista Motels were not as good as this one.

I love this Motel, from the friendly reception you get when arriving, to the little extra's. Highly recommended. Close to town, very central. Clean and tidy room with everything you would need. 5 days here was a pleasure, a home away from home. Best Bella Vista in NZ for sure Close to airport but not too close.

Although I wouldn't send anyone to Invercargill, this was a nice place to stay the night on our way from the Catlins to Te Anau. The reception lady was very friendly and welcoming, and the facilities were good. Wifi had a 1GB daily limit, which is enough for most people. I was uploading photos, and the lady at the desk...

Bella vista is easy to find and quite close to supermarkets and some fast food outlets. Our unit was spacious and the bed was comfortable. It was a nice touch having generous sized biscuits with the tea and coffee. The lady in the office was very welcoming and friendly. The motel is a short drive away from Queens Park which... More
