Arrived in Invercargill without a booking and this was our third attempt at finding a comfortable bed for our last night in NZ and I'm so glad we didn't settle on either of the first two. The hosts were the friendliest and most helpful we experienced our entire stay and the room was great. The most comfortable bed our entire... More

This motel is run by a guy who obviously loves where he is and is very friendly and helpful. Our room was a basic motel room, had everything you would expect and bed as comfortable - heating great and even when off room stayed warm. Price was a little on the high side but I guess it is in a... More

I stay here every 3 weeks for business - friendly hosts always with a smile on their face- nothing is too hard. Rooms have been updated from previous Management and are warm light and comfortable - would definitely recommend to others.

The Bella Vista Invercargill was a great experience. The new managers were chatty, very helpful and great people. The motel is in the middle of a refurbishment so coming along. Our room was very good, warm, fresh and clean. It was a pleasure and thanks for making our visit to Southland memorable for our first visit.
