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!

Located just metres away from the town centre this Motel is ideal for a visit to Wanaka. Very clean room completely set up for what we needed (a one night stay). Very obliging and helpful hosts - nothing was too much trouble for them.

Very friendly & helpful, the room had a big comfortable bed and plenty of space for all our luggage. Stayed four nights and it was clean, well equipped and quiet. Useful to be able to use a washer & drier.

The couple running this Bella Vista motel were extremely efficient and helpful and fortunate to have such an ideal location in town. Fully up to the best of Bella Vista motel standards of accommodation being clean,comfortable and adequately equipped for our 2 nights stay. Having stayed in six different B.V's over the past month none provided us with more than... More

Set right in the middle of town this motel is very handy to shops and restaurants. Despite the location it was surprisingly quite but that may have been the result of the wet weather prevailing at the time. Unit was clean and comfortable but the little extras (like small bottles of shampoo, moisturiser,etc) that are expected of 4 star establishments... More

Stayed for 3 nights. The room was clean and comfortable and functional. It was located in a great position 100m from the lake. The hotel was fine and reasonably priced but fairly basic. We would stay there again as it was good value for money. The major issue was there was only one window which had a security lock on... More

Spent 1 night early March 2015. King studio with spa. Modern decor, comfortable bed, good small kitchenette. Great deep spa bath. Very central to main part of town. Didn't move the car at all. Easy strolling. Room a tiny bit on small side. Great for 1-2 nights but room size could make you a bit stir crazy if staying longer.

A predictably comfortable Bella Vista. Stayed one night in Feb 2015. Wanaka is very central (right in the middle of town), very comfortable (great spa bath) and good beds and bathroom. The manager was very friendly and helpful. All round a very good place for a short stay.
