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.

We stayed at this motel when we had a family bereavement. The staff moved things around so we could have a double room as we had more family arriving. They were very helpful and did everything they could to make our time there less stressful. The rooms were very clean and had everything you could need. The water pressure was... More

We had some bad news and had been driving all day. We just wanted a room. We knew Bella Vista generally had good quality rooms, and Ashburton was no different. Same quality we expect. It was a very very windy night. Something in the main window of the room was loose and caused a kazoo type sound when the wind... More

This motel stood out because of its cleanliness, accessibility, and good sized units. We found the motel was easy to find, being on the main road. There was no trouble at night from vehicle noise, as the units were double glazed, a great help for a weary traveller. The relief manager was very pleasant and helpful , and always had... More
