I stayed with my sister at the start of September. We had a fantastic stay. The room was exactly what was required and Michelle went out of her way to accommodate our needs which we really appreciated. The rooms were very clean and tidy, and the bed comfortable. Road noise wasn't a problem even though the main road is so... More

Very comfortable homely accommodation with excellent hosts who are interested in ensuring your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Easy location to find and well situated for local restaurants and attractions. Continental breakfast is very adequate and delivered the evening before. We have stayed here on three occassions and will return when we are in the area.

2nd time staying at the Bella Vista & still say offering a cooked breakfast option would be well received. The rooms are spotlessly clean & very well appointed. Plenty of shelf space in the bathroom which a number of motels seem to lack. Considering the proximity to the main highway, the room was nice & quiet. Always a warm &... More

This accommodation was clean and tidy. A welcoming greeting from the owners was good. The room had cooking facilities which is handy. The heater was on thankyou as it was a cold day in Ashburton Would recommend to travellers and business people having to stop in Ashburton.

I was amazed at how quiet my room was at this motel as it is on a very busy road. The double glazing is obviously very efficient. The welcome I received was lovely and the room had been warmed for me, which was much appreciated. My room was spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable. In the morning there was... More

We found the motel with ease and were shown to our rooms which were large, clean and extremely comfortable, a fantastic sight after a long flight! In total we stayed for 2 weeks. Evan, Heather and...

Nice clean spot with large rooms, decent price point, easy laundry facilities (washing free, drying $4 charge), and friendly service. The bathroom had both a shower and a spa tub, which was exactly what we needed after a long cold, rainy day in the car. Great for traveling with a baby, as we could have the cot in one room... More
