This was our forth Bella Vista and after our experience in Queenstown was a little cautious on what we would get. No problem, fantastic room again with a full kitchen and a two element broiler, There was a small garden and table outside to have tea/coffee. The small garden is for all to enjoy but most seem to not visit.... More

The motel is scrupulously clean, with very comfortable beds. No views of the lake, but that helps the budget. Short 5-minute walk to the i-Site and the main street. Stayed in a spa room. Cooking facilities were reasonable. The only negative is that there is only room for one person to sit while eating.

We enjoyed a two night stay in this motel. The room was small but well equipped and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The owner was very helpful and gave us some great tips for our trip to Milford Sound. The town centre was only a short walk away.

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.
