After a long drive from Fox Glacier over the Haast pass looking at waterfalls, we just wanted a decent night sleep, and Bella Vista brand motels usually give that so we stayed here. No complaints at all, all the usual standard expected from the brand. Close enough to walk to town or the lake.

We were greeted by a very cheerful Denise when we first arrived. The check-in was swift and yet efficient. The rooms were clean and well-kept. The location is fantastic. Just down the road, there is a supermarket and the beach front is a mere 5 minutes walk away. As it was my first time to New Zealand, I had to... More

3 of us came to Bella Vista Wanaka and the moment we stepped into the reception we were greeted by the gregarious Paul. We had a great chat about Singapore and Penang and he helpfully showed us all the places to go and things to do in Wanaka in detail. He also gave us advice on our plans in NZ;... More

This motel is central to everything, shops, restaurants, supermarkets. 2 minutes walk to lake wanaka. The room is small, but very neat and funtional. The bathroom is spacious. Free parking in a central area is very nice. The owner is friendly.

We saw Bella Vista hotels throughout NZ but this is the only one we had booked. (We booked hotels before the trip.) It was nice enough. Clean rooms. A bit worn but you can tell they tried to update with fresh paint a a bit of decor. Friends of the owners were managing the hotel while the owners were out.... More

My partner and I spent 2 nights here as part of a recent NZ trip. We had booked a double room but were allocated a single room with a double bed - a quick chat to Denise and we were upgraded at no charge. The room was cosy and comfortable with the usual amenities including free limited wifi ( additional... More
