Immediately on checking in, Desma went out of her way to make sure I was okay, and offering to help in anyway she could. It didn't matter what the room was like, the surroundings, the staff at the motel, and the friendly service were second to none. I was sad to leave after my second niight here. Very comfortable bed,... More

This is a very well run motel in a quiet street one block back from the lake. The manageress/owner was very friendly and welcoming. The room was absolutely spotless and provided all the amenities needed for a short stay. I had a great night's sleep on the comfortable bed. Wifi access was available for a very reasonable cost and parking... More

Good location,clean, great value for money. Inexpensive wifi. One road back from main street made it quieter location but some great bars and restaurants within minutes. Des bubbly and informative, lovely welcome. Would have stayed another night but fully booked

Being only one block back from the main street, but in a no-thru street proves to be a winning combination for a perfect location with minimal noise. Impressed with the level of cleanliness and attention to detail that far exceeded our expectations for the price. The only mistake was that we didn't stay long enough in this most scenic location.

This motel is right in the centre of Wanaka and so extremely convenient. It was clean and comfortable. It was not the biggest place we stayed in but was perfectly adequate. There was no free wi-fi, but you can get free wi-fi in the lobby at the New World supermarket just down the road! The manageress was friendly and helpful.... More

Wanaka is a beautiful place and the Bella Vista is ideally situated to enjoy this lovely town. Plenty of restaurants close by and a large supermarket just up the road. Unfortunately we were only here for one night. The lake has snow capped mountains in the background and there is so much to do here.

We selected this Bella Vista motel because it was centrally located and we were not disappointed. We found the facilities of a very high standard, clean and comfortable. Paul was exceptionally helpful with advice and information on local attractions. In particular he was spot on with his advice with regards to the Southern Alps Flight, it was fantastic. Nothing was... More

Clean, economical, comfortable & unassuming. What more can I say? Friendly welcome by the lady manager who, when asked, was able to direct us to a rather shabby looking Chinese restaurant which offered superb Cantonese cuisine. Thanks for that.

Bella Vista is in a great location, right in the centre of Wanaka and with gorgeous views of the lake. The rooms/apartments are really spacious and beautifully decorated. We also had a lovely living area and kitchen. Would recommend it!
