Still as good as last visit very clean and staff welcoming which is a bonus after a long trip.Bed was comfortable and room and bathroom were spotless so much so my wife who can spot a loose hair at twenty paces gave it the thumbs up. Very quiet even though on the main road.We will definitely stay here again.

Hi Neil, Thank you for your kind review, we are glad you found our units spotlessly clean. We are updating beds at the moment so glad you found them comfy and our double glazing sure does make a difference with the traffic noise. Look forward seeing you again. More

Stayed for one night in ground floor studio unit. My first impressions were that it looked new and clean and maybe a bit noisy as close to highway. However the room was quiet and the room was new and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and certainly one of the best motel beds ive slept in. The continental breakfast... More

My stay at Bella Vista Motel in Ashburton was very pleasant. The room was very clean and comfortable. The owners, my hosts, were very friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem for them. The bed was extremely comfortable which is an absolute must staying away from home. Overall I was very happy to have stayed there.

Very comfortable clean room with nice modern bathroom. The room wasn't huge but was optimised so that everything was in a logical place and space was used to the maximum. The bed was nice and comfortable and free wifi was provided. The staff are friendly and overall it was just a really nice convenient place to stay.

The customer service is certainly very warm and friendly. However, the motel is situated at main-road-side, with trucks passing until late, trains passing, and ordinary traffic adding to the noise level. Shutting the windows doesn't help much; in fact the air gets hot and stuffy. In the middle of the night, I considered opening the door to the ensuite -... More

Sorry to hear that your stay was interrupted with traffic noise. Most towns have motels situated on the main roads and Bella Vista is the only motel in Ashburton to have double glazing in an effort to reduce noise. We do provide fans in the rooms to keep them cooler on warm nights. Unfortunately we have no control over the... More

Very eco-friendly sadly maybe too much. The room never came equipped with toothpaste or a bar soap, (supplied on request) what was supplied was a contain of shampoo and liquid soap. No hand lotions, shower caps…. A selection of small toiletries made available would have been appreciated - for the price one expects a tad more. No in house cooked... More

Hosts were very accommodating with my late arrival time and left light on and key in room which was great! Room was a lot larger than I had expected as was the shower room. Walking distance to a Robert Harris (open for breakfast and very popular) and a pub but much longer walk to get to town centre. I found... More
