We dragged our bags to the I site. the lady was kind enough to call the taxi Relaxing Journeys had booked for us. She also told us that it was so close we could walk to Bella Vista. Anyway... More

This was our last stay in NZ, we felt that this is the best hotel ever we stay. Free parking in front of our room. Queen size bed, warm heater, small pantry with fridge, small dining table, spacious bathroom with shower and the heating light is the best. You do not feel the cold when showering. Strong free wifi.

Stayed one night on our way to Queenstown. Couldn't pick a better hotel for the price and the location. Easy walking distance to the iCenter, the lake, several trails, and numerous restaurants. Owner was friendly, rooms were clean, bed was comfty.

Really wanted to lift the rating to at least a 3 star, however the rooms are just too 'cosy' to do so. Small rooms, no fridge bar ... however a nice simple spot for a stay over. Tis close to centre of the town though which is good. May be being a bit harsh with the 2 star ... am... More

Arrived early in the afternoon and was able to check straight into the rooms booked. Rooms are the usual Bella Vista layout. We booked 2 rooms - Compact Queen and Queen Studio unit. Weather was a little cooler and feel that the heaters are not that great and should be replaced. The location is great - couldn't get more central... More

Located right within the shopping precinct of the Wanaka Village and a short walk from the lake front Bella Vist is ideally located for a relaxing exploration of Wanaka. On arrival you are impressed at the standard of the property and the owners are equally well skilled in providing the best quality of service. Unfortunately on the night of my... More

I took the bus from Queenstown to Wanaka. A short and scenic one hour plus drive. Once at my destination which is the lakeside parking lot I noticed there are no taxi cabs waiting for you. I am not certain but I believe there is maybe one taxi cab in the whole of Wanaka. ))) So carrying my big bag... More

The hosts are from Australia. The gentleman very nicely went through what to see in Wanaka and around Wanaka. Rooms are very clean too. Location is great. Very close to the lake and town centre and supermarket. Five star!
