This is a great motel, well-managed by Trish and Warwick. Very comfortable beds, modern and very clean rooms with GREAT shower pressure (Why is this such a problem for other motels?). A short walk through the park to the shops, or a few metres down to the lakeside, and situated in a quiet location. Free Wi-Fi and easy to use.... More

I booked this motel for 1 night. When I called up I was quoted $170 for 2 adults and 2 children. Upon my arrival I was charged an extra $35. When I questioned this I was told that was the price. They told me the extra was for the 2 children which I had told them about when i called... More

Warwick H, Owner at Bella Vista Motel, responded to this review

Very unbecoming conduct for a “travel agent” from Camden. You were given a very good “wholesale” price for the family unit of $170 plus $35.00 for the 2 extra persons ($205.00). For anyone else booking at that time the price was $245.00. You would have been very unlikely to get a better rate anywhere in Te Anau at that time... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the motel, and Trish and Warwick were very welcoming and helpful hosts. Our next night was a 24 hour cruise on Doubtful Sound and they were very happy for us to leave our car in the car park and, when we came to pick it up the following day, were interested in how the...

Thank you to Warwick & Trish for making our 4 night stay just perfect. My highest criteria is cleanliness and you excelled. Your attention to detail, thoughtfulness and warmth was endearing. You are centrally located, fairly priced, the rooms were immaculate and we loved the little choc chip cookies, shortbread and hot chocolate. The beds were sooooo comfortable. It is... More

Clean, comfortable motel a couple of blocks back from the lake and a quick walk into the small township. Owners friendly and helpful; room spotlessly clean with good bed; free wifi. Fridge and microwave in room so self-catering easy with a supermarket round the corner. Good spot.

Location is good (town is small so assume all have a good location). The room was a bit on the small side, but manageable. More important - the bed was comfy and the place was clean. Also, they had a fridge which made it good for us to self-cater our breakfast before an early pickup for the sound. Hosts were... More

We only spent one night here and we were upgraded to a king bed room. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. Our host, Trish, was warm and welcoming and recommended various restaurants in town. Motel is next to a lovely memorial park and a five minute walk to shops and restaurants.

We spent two very pleasant nights here so that we could enjoy a trip to Milford Sound. The motel's presentation, cleanliness and comfort couldn't have been better - well almost - Bella Vista Invercargill was a tiny fraction better. Sorry Guys !!! Our hosts were terrific and did much to make our stay so memorable. Motel is situated in a... More

We stayed one night here and were very happy with it. The staff were helpful and the family room was great. The room was clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen facilities were great for cooking the trout that we caught with FishJet. Would definitely recommend it.

Very clean and well equipped rooms, but very small. We had a compact queen and it was an apt description. Hostess was very helpful and welcoming. Shower and laundry facilities were great. Pleasant walk to village and lake.
