We were very lucky to get the last room for an overnight stay, it was a very cold night but the room was lovely and cosy, very well appointed and everything was absolutely spotless and the owners were very nice and helpful. We are looking forward to a longer stay next time we are in Ashburton.

We stayed over night at the Bellavista Motel recently and would thoroughly recommend the accommodation. The unit was very clean and comfortable and Rosalie was very helpful with assistance regarding our evening meal. She also took the trouble to suggest visiting Slavely Falls near Methven on our way to Geraldine and points further south. We are glad that we followed... More

As expected a quiet nights sleep , this was the only motel with a vacancy left about 6 pm Small kitchen and even smaller bathroom basin . The fan heater over the toilet to warm the seat was a bit novel."......

Happy to provide you accommodation as Ashburton was fully booked. Or main feature is the double glazing for quietness and warmth, as most motels are on the main highway our guests always appreciate this feature. Our last room left was a compact queen studio and we are glad that the fan heater made you laugh More

The room was nice enough, average sized, clean. The kitchenette had a fridge and toaster, but no microwave or sink. The bathroom was nice; it had a shower (but no tub) and a heater. There was some road noise.

This's was a bit dearer than the other places we stayed during our trip, but well worth it. Even got an upgrade at no extra expense. The lady in reception was very pleasant. Would definitely stay Here again

Very friendly receptionist. Travelling with a colleague and as motel was not full, we were offered an upgrade from twin to 1 bdrm with 2nd TV, space each & spa bath. Loved the roomy unit, biscuits and well equipped bathroom. Plenty of parking space. Nice area for evening walk as well. Would definitely stay again

Clean quiet, convenient excellent friendly service, complimentary wifi. We were traveling around both north and south island and we found common faults to be accommodation that was w tired and some bedding specially pillows smelling of the many heads they had accommodated. Here everything was as it should be. A pleasure to stay there.
