We are nearing the end of a week-long road trip around the South Island staying in a range of motels and Bella Vista Fox Glacier is without doubt setting the standard for others to aspire to. The building is modern/fairly new with double glazing for peace at night and very smart bathrooms. Everything is compact but stylish, functional and spotlessly... More

Bella Vista is right on the main road, across the street from the "last petrol for 120 km" and very close to everything in town. We were able to easily walk to the shops and... More

Our friends stayed here recently and said how good the motel was and how friendly the staff were. On their recommendation we booked a night and end up staying for 2 nights. Everything they said was true. The staff couldn't be more helpful and arranged a flight for us over the Glacier and also made recommendations of other activities to... More

The weather was pretty wild whilst we were at Fox but our room was warm and cosy. It was a small room but adequate for us. The outdoor spa was a great place to defrost. Nice bathroom as well. Great referral for dinner at The Last Kitchen.

The staff was very helpful and encourage us to go to her anytime with our questions. The room is large and clean. We had a king bed and it was very comfortable. The motel is located next to all the shops and restaurants. We walked to dinner etc. We appreciated the information the staff gave us regarding hikes. We took... More

Pleasant staff and made welcome on arrival. All very clean throughout and everything required was provided. Large comfy bed, no duvet cover only a sheet, which I wasn't happy about and the room was a little on the small side. Walls not sound proof and could hear people in the next room talking and using the bathroom facilities. Not happy... More

Lovely Modern rooms with microwave, kitchenette, and lovely bathroom. Comfy beds and nice clean linen. Definitely recommend this motel. Easy walk to shops and drive to Glacier and Lake Matheson. Spotlessly clean.

We arrived just after a major storm had hit the area. There had been no power overnight and mo real prospect of it being restored during our stay. The owners were very apologetic, not that they could do much about it nor it was their fault! We were upgraded with our room - a bigger bed and, if there had... More

Excellent place to stay, would stay again. Modern Facilities, comfortable bed. I believe there was a microwave in the room. (We didn't do any cooking at this stop). The bathroom was modern and provided an excellent shower. Free wifi was also helpful. It is in easy walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in the area. The staff were... More
