Having stayed in Fox glacier three times, in hotels and motels that were rather lacking, I was very pleased to find a modern motel at last. The others I have stayed at were all somewhat behind the times, but this one is clean and well managed.

Tidy and clean room, well equipped and cosy. The staff were very helpful and friendly and even helped us to plan the rest of our journey and arrange booking at the next destination, so we also stayed in Bella Vista at Wanaka. Highly recommended and we look forward to staying there again.

One night stop over. Usual standard for Bella vista. Clean, tidy and a few niceties. Close to town and cafes. Stayed with my family and it worked well for us. Had a note about sleeping between the sheets. My kids found it quite amusing.

This motel was beautifully presented. The room was clean and immaculate with every thing we needed. The shower was really great with excellent pressure. The staff were very helpful and gave suggestions on local attractions. Would definitely stay here again.

We arrived in Fox Glacier without accommodation and checked out a few of the motels. We picked Bella Vista and weren't disappointed. The receptionist showed us different options and we picked a room that had a microwave for just a few $$$$'s more. The room was very clean and modern. We were given excellent information about things to do in... More

We recently did a self-drive vacation around the south-island and stayed at around 6 different Hotels and Motels. We found the Bella Vista @ Fox to be one of the best stays. Both Bill and Jill are extremely welcoming people, with a wealth of local knowledge to share with you. The room was spacious, clean and contained all the neccesities.... More

Just spend 2 nights staying at this motel during a tour of New Zealand. Must say it was excellent. The room was so clean and spacious and met all our needs. A great location as we were able to walk to Fox Guides who we had our Glacier tour with and the restaurants are very close by. Staff were very... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and our compact studio was extremely "compact", especially when we have 2 huge luggages which took up lots of space in the room. There is no microwave oven in the room too. Room is clean though. But we will look other better choices should we return to Fox Glacier.

After discovering that our pre-booked accommodation at another establishment was unavailable due to closure (and we weren't informed) we arrived at Bella Vista about 6pm seeking 2 rooms. The staff member was very pleasant and helpful and within 10 minutes we were unpacking in our very clean and updated rooms. The bathroom is spacious with new fittings and tiles, and... More
