I have nothing really bad to say on this hotel, on the other hand it’s not a hotel you might call a good one. Hotel location is good, right in the town center, and it has its own parking. In the late afternoon when we returned from our trip, it was veey pleasant outside, but the hotel room was VERY... More

Upon arrival at the Bella vista in Wanaka I was created by a male(forgotten his name sorry) but I'm sure that's Denise's husband. It seams to be a family run business. Very friendly and attentive staff. I was given all the information I needed in relation to my room and wifi which was important to me. Staff was very chatty... More

We stayed two nights in a compact room. Was fine for us. Clean, tidy & comfortable. The hosts Denise & Paul were very good. Paul gave us a map & pointed out a number of "non-tourist" areas to visit in & around Wanaka. The only slight downer was no sky sport for me to watch the cricket.

Stayed 1 night. Great access to downtown area by walking. Usual amenities, parking adequate but tight. Nice jaccuzzi in our room. Would stay again. (59 yo) Surprised to see charge of $6 to use laundry when most other hotels provide this free of charge.

Compact studio still spacious enough, comfortable and quiet. Very friendly hosts (and little dog). Great central location, easy walking to lake. Good value especially given we were there new years eve. Wifi worked well.

Stayed there Dec. 27/15. Advertises itself as a 4 star hotel. Would give it 3 at most. Nothing extraordinary about this hotel. Very simple and smallish rooms. No air conditioning! Our room faced west and became an oven with the slow setting sun and it never cooled down at night even though we had all possible windows open; they open... More

We had a one night stay in a King size studio. There was basic television, with 7 or 8 local channels and free wifi. No Air Conditioning, but a fan was provided. (We arrived on a hot day, so was a little suffocating, and had to leave doors and windows open to cool off.) They do have a heater, so... More

Stayed for 1 night and enjoyed Wanaka. Rooms were clean and comfortable and great location. Managers were very helpful- Paul gave us lots of advice on things to do and where to eat. Couldn't have asked for better hosts and would definitely recommend!

I stay 1 night at this motel in Dec. 2015. The motel is at town center, with much choice of restaurants nearby and a supermarket on the same street. The room is clean and the bed is very comfortable. However, I don’t know why the room is so small. They charged me 1.5% surcharge for paying room rate by credit... More
