Making Te Anau (instead of Queenstown) our base for Milford and Doubtful Sound was easily one of the best decisions wee made in hindsight. We stayed three nights in this motel. The longest we stayed at any place during our trip in NZ, and we were happy with our choice. The rooms were very comfortable and compact. The colour of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Te Anau. Although not situated on the beautiful Lake Te Anau, it was just a short walk to the town and the lake. The view across the local park was lovely and it was very quiet. I booked on the internet and got a special pricing deal Great value: The room was comfortable and... More

This is a comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation. The staff was friendly and welcoming. They provided a map of the town and marked the location of several restaurants. The town is within walking distance. We would stay here again.

Great location, with outstanding hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble and help was readily given to enhance our stay. Our unit was spotless, with better than usual standard of towels and linen. Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome,shame it was only for one night. Thoroughly recommend.

Wonderful location. Great rooms with fabulous staff. Rooms were clean and beds gave a good nights sleep. We stayed for two nights and were given a room upgrade. We intend to stay there again on our next visit.

Very comfortable room spotlessly clean. Friendly management upgraded us to a larger unit. Easy access to Lake and shops but far enough away to be nice and quiet. We spend 100 nights in motel accom annually and can recommend this one The Minstrel

We spent three nights here while doing day trips to Milford Sound etc. The room was neat and tidy, although a little cramped for 2 people and 2 suitcases if you want to do much more than sleep. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and there were a tonne of brochures advertising different activities to do nearby. The location is... More

We were greeted by the owners, a friendly couple,not sure of their names though. They were very helpful with information, on things to see and do. We stayed in room 2, we didn't require a view. It was comfortable for a one night stay. It was a motel, but with nice extra touches! Electric blankets, a microwave, fridge, and quality... More

We recently stayed at this Motel for our final 3 days in New Zealand and were not disappointed. The cleanliness of the room was excellent and it was very spacious - more than enough for our requirements. We found the small kitchenette to be an ideal facility, as we had started to become a little bored with "eating out" and... More

Hi Ray Thank you for your great review of Bella Vista Te Anau. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and enjoy the fantastic scenery we have in Fiordland. I will see what I can do with the weather next time so you can enjoy Milford Sound as well. Sorry to hear that it was a little... More
