Stayed here for two nights on our tour of NZ and enjoyed the experience. The room was a reasonable size and had all the equipment you would expect from Bella Vista. You can't really go wrong with this franchise chain. Very helpful staff, although we had booked a guided walk already. Excellent location.

Stayed here for five nights in august. The location was so convenient, it's next to the main street of town, so an easy walk to shops, restaurants, bars. The room was clean and warm and the staff friendly and helpful. Happy with everything. Would stay here again :)

Coming from Europe for some days skiing in Wanaka I have been staying in the Bella Vista. As I was travelling without car the location of the Motel (less than 5 min walk to whatever Restaurant or Shop in town) was best choice. As its located in a parallel road to the main road traffic noise either in the night... More

We stayed at Bella Vista Wanaka for 4 nights, and couldn't rate it higher. The room was the most immaculate hotel room that I've ever stayed in, even the taps were sparkling! Comfortable beds, and so warm. The management were so helpful and just lovely people and the hotel couldn't have been more centrally located if it tried! Literally no... More

Stayed here one night, june 2014. Room 3, with a spa bath tub. Motel is near pub, shops, restaurants, supermarket, lake. Room is well furnished, with a kitchenette with a microwave oven and fridge. Clean and well kept. Only downside is the heating, a single warm air fan heater very close to the bed. Noisy at night so we decided... More

Stayed one night for work. The location is fantastic being very close to all facilities. Room is clean and tidy and I had a spa bath in my room. Really appreciated the electric blanket as Wanaka was freezing and my feet were like ice blocks after being out to dinner. This motel will definitely be on my list if coming... More

Stayed at the Bella Vista for eight nights while undertaking the Sofa Ski Camp on Treble Cone. Perfect location right in the heart of town. Very quiet and peaceful stay. Room was great. I wasn't expecting full service so it was a treat to come back to a clean and tidy room with the bed made after a long day... More

During a recent ski trip stayed at Bella Vista. It's walking distance to supermarket, local bars, restaurants, the lake and shopping. They also have a drying room to dry gear after skiing together with a laundry. Rooms were warm, clean and had everything we needed. Also got an extra snooze in the morning as Cardrona and Treble Cone much closer... More

We recently stayed at the Bella Vista in Wanaka and have no complaints at all. The location is in the centre of town and it is a short walk to everything - supermarket, bus to the ski fields, the lake, restaurants and pubs. The staff were very friendly and gave us some great suggestions for dinner and things to do... More
