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.

The owners Warwick and Trish made our 1 night stay a very pleasant one. The room was clean and comfortable as was the bed. They even gave us a voucher for a couple of drinks at a nearby italian restaurant. We would have liked to have stayed longer.

We stayed at the Bella Vista Te Anau for one night on a recent visit in the area. The front desk staff greeted us with a warm welcome, and were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was a bit small, but well laid laid out and clean. We really enjoyed having some basic kitchen essentials (toaster, cutting board, fridge, knives... More

Room was smallish but really well thought out with everything you need in a good place. Doesn't have a full kitchen but enough to do a nice breakfast or small meal. Really handy to the town and lake. Lovely owners. Really nice bright airy feel.

Stayed overnight on route to Milford Sound. Owner very friendly and helpful. Room neat and tidy. Bed comfortable. Room only had single glazing and so it was a bit noisy. The Motel had Sky tv but the package did not include the movie channels. A good place to stay. Te Anau is lovely.

Good location for visiting Te Anau. The room was compact but had everything we needed for our two night stay. Laundry facilities and on site parking available. Short walk across the park for restaurants and shops. A good location also for visiting the fiords. The owners were helpful and gave us useful information about the area.
