The room was comfortable and spacious, and despite being on the ground floor and looking out onto the car park, it was not too noisy. Bed was... More

Great location and wonderful staff. Only negative was that the toaster blew up however staff were there immediately to fix and replace. Within walking distance of the city centre, restaurants, cafes, walking tracks etc.

I'm not sure what one of the earlier reviewers meant about it backing onto a pub, I stayed for 5 nights and the nearest pub was on the next block????? It was very quiet and peaceful, and I had a beautiful view of the mountains. The studio was perfect for one, and so central to everything wanaka has to offer.... More

We stayed at this Bella Vista Motel while in Wanaka while attending a wedding. We were very impressed by the fabulous location, right in the centre of town, and within walking distance to the lake. We had a lovely warm studio unit, and were thankful for the electric blankets on our beds. Thankyou to our hosts for an enjoyable stay... More

Was a okay place to stay, unfortunately backs onto a pub so very noisy. And the room heater was very loud so had to pick between being warm or sleeping. Apart from that it was a nice place and good staff.

Stayed here after staying at Fox Glacier. The lady Denise was very lovely and looked after us. She showed us best things to do in Wanaka. Rooms were very clean just like other motel. We had a great experience here.
