We particularly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were greeted in a friendly and warm manner by both husband and wife. They were efficient, attentive and genuinely concerned about our comfort. Actually, it is the first time in over a decade that someone has walked us to our room to make sure we were familiar with the features in... More

The hosts were lovely and the room was clean and well maintained, albeit on the small side. Just a short walk away from the city centre of Te Anau, and our hosts gave us some ideas on where to eat and advice on the Milford Sound Cruise. Free parking and free wifi.

We only stayed two nights and have stayed in Bella Vista motels in other parts of the country. Two things struck us immediately here - the super warm welcome at the front desk and the fresh look of the room. Nothing was too much trouble for Trish who even offered to help with our bags. The rooms have obviously had... More

This motel is very good value for money and has been redecorated by the hosts and is very clean and spotless. Trish is a great host and nothing is too much trouble for her. She even looked after our luggage when we took the overnight trip to Doubtful Sound with Real Journeys which is a must. The laundry facilities are... More

Upon arrival, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was the best that we stayed in during 7 nights in New Zealand in December, 2014. You think that humid rooms are everywhere, but our room here was not. It was new, fresh, and wonderful. A great place to stay for 3 nights. Te Anau is the gateway to... More

After a long journey from Lake Takepo and going through some horrendous weather, getting to the Motel was all we were looking forward to. Right from the start we were made welcome which is just what we needed. This Motel is well situated and you get a very cheery welcome. Definitely recommend this as a place to stay

Spent 2 nights here and loved Te Anau. Motel centrally placed for everything. Pointlessly clean and very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen, and a guest laundry. Loads of info for visitors. Two hours drive to Milford Sound, we went at 6.30 am and benefited from the most amazing light on the mountains.

We recently stayed one night in a standard room. It was well appointed and very clean with a big bathroom. The hosts were very helpful and the motel is in walking distance of a great selection of places to eat. However if staying for more than 1 night we would recommend getting the larger room - the standard one is... More

Bella Vista is a very clean and tidy motel close to the lake and restaurants. The managers were very friendly and more than happy to book tours on our behalf as well as recommend great places to eat. We will absolutely stay here when next in Te Anau.
