Upon checking in, we were greeted by the hosts, and they immediately gave us maps and tips on travelling to Milford Sound. They also prepared the room for us, and already turned on the heaters to make sure our room was nice and warm by the time we checked in. Room was neat and clean, and had a microwave, a... More

Just spent two delightful evenings at the Bella Vista. Hosts Trish and Warwick were very friendly and helpful. The room looked and felt as though it was brand new. Very clean, comfortable and quiet. Would recommend to our friends.

Very clean but small room. Decent bathroom and bed was very comfortable. For a chain hotel it was good and I would recommend it to others. A good place to stay a few nights while going to Milford Sound. Wi-fi worked for us.

From the first minute Warwick and Trish helped us every step of the way. They kept us up to date with the road conditions as Milford sound road was closed and eventually our cruise cancelled. A new activity was suggested and we all enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable. Most things in town are just a... More

Trish and Warwick were so welcoming and thoughtful on our wintry stay. The lights were on, the heater was on, they gave us loads of advice on what to do and helped us plan our stay. The actual room was lovely, we wanted for nothing. Highly recommend!

Such a delightful 2 night stay at this lovely clean motel. I was travelling solo on my way to a 3 day hike. I loved my cosy clean ground floor room and easy access to the laundry and washing lines. Table and chairs right outside in the sunshine to enjoy morning coffee. Nice and quiet location but close to all... More

Nice staff, good location. Room was on the smaller side but I think that is what we might of reserved. Booked via Expedia no issues. Close enough to walk to dinner but we ended up driving. Free WiFi. Always a plus!

We are a couple from Melbourne who chose to stay at this place due to the other reviews. It deserves the praise. We were greeted by the lovely host who showed us to our room, having already turned on the heater. There was complimentary wifi and while the room was small (we booked the compact queen) it was clean and... More

Had the pleasure of staying at this great motel. The room was exactly what we needed - modern, nicely decorated, clean and tidily furnished with all the necessary equipment. The weather was variable but the motel was always comfortable. The welcome from the owners was warm informative and caring for our needs. Nothing was too much.The good parking on site... More

I'm not much of a fan of motels because I think they provide the characterless type of all accommodation classes (except hostels). But, NZ is a land of motels. Also, I would have wished this motel was on the lakefront like many of the other properties in Te Anau but it was just a short walk away. Other than that,... More
