An excellent motel to use as a base for visits to Milford & Doubtful Sounds. The facilities were very good and very clean. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. Would highly recommend Bella Vista to everyone.

We stayed here for 1 night and leave very early next day. The hotel is located near the lake and city center (8 min walk). The check in and out was easy. The staff is so informative and super friendly. The room is clean with 2 beds. The bed is comfortable. The shower was nice and strong. There is a... More

Great location and friendly helpful staff. Easy to find and good parking, even allowed us to leave our bags while we went tramping. Clean and tidy rooms with all convenient things needed for a relaxing stay.

Great welcome when we arrived with lots of useful information given about the town and also our drive to Milford Sound the next day. We had room 13, on the first floor, and in a position where our room was not walked by much. It had a (locked) door though to the next room so they could be linked and... More

The staff are extremely helpful. The rooms were comfortable. Good cloths washing facilities and a washing line to hang out the cloths. It is very near the centre and lake. We saw a wonderful sunrise here.

Good motel room in a convenient location a few minutes from the main street. Helpful staff who gave good recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Room was small but clean and good value, just what we wanted for the night.

Stayed here one night. Got some great advice from the lady at reception. Also a very nice welcome for our 30th anniversary :-) Room a little small but spotless room and bathroom. A little noise from other guests but overall a good nights rest. I would stay again. Recommend you visit the local theatre and pie shop. Chunky steak pie... More

We previously stayed with Trish and Warwick in March 2015 and their motel is just as good now as it was then. (It’s hard to better perfection!!!) As before our room was clean, comfortable and spacious and had all the little extras one expects in a motel of this class. Although we were staying for two nights, we had a... More

Very friendly and helpful management coupled with a clean well kept motel make this an excellent choice. Rooms are a very good size. It is just a short walk to many restaurants. It is very helpful to have many of the menus included in the in room compendium. An excellent choice in Te Anau

We stayed 3 nights in TeAnau at Bellagio Vista. Trish could not have been nicer. We checked in early and were able to check out late. We had a small kitchenette but the bbq was just outside, which we made good use of. The room was compact but it was extremely easy to store things so as not to clutter.... More
