Just perfect for two nights in Wanaka. Walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. The room was very tiny however cosy and ideal for us. I noticed it was fully booked the two nights we were in town which indicated to me the excellent pricing compared to other options. My husband and I were on a tour of the South... More

Booked this motel after reading other review on tripadvisor and decided it should be located very close to the lake. And yes, it's true.. Only one block away from Lake Wanaka and pretty much everything else at the city center area including NewWorld supermarket only a short stroll away. The owner are very friendly upon check in, free wifi, and... More

Not a bad place though not fantastic, heating in rooms not too good, nicely located (though no views - no "vistas"). Biggest gripe is that we booked online and told them we needed 3 rooms for 11 people. One room was for 4 pax (family room). However, when we got back home they demanded extra money for that room and... More

We stayed one night in June 2015 on our way through to Queenstown and as a base to Cardrona ski fields. We found Bella Vista to be value for money, modern and comfortable accommodation and in a perfect location. Straight across the street were, shops, pubs / bars and restaurants and the next street over was the beautiful lake! The... More

we were only able to fit in one night in beautiful Wanaka and Bella Vista seemed to be one of the best locations. easy walking distance to everything, and nice clean tidy rooms. my only (little) negative comment would be that we needed to use room key in slot to activate power, which meant we were not able to go...

We stayed here recently. It was everything that was advertised very clean with lovely staff. Great central location, the owner who is in reception had a lot of local knowledge and tips on where to go and what to look at. Had a road report for when we were leaving. Would definitely stay here again it. Wanaka is much underrated... More

Rooms were new and fully stocked like an apartment. Two TVs, oven, stove, fridge, microwave, two heaters. Everything was clean, bathroom was new. We only stayed one night but I would highly recommend this for a longer stay at a good price. Free WiFi was great, plenty of parking and no noise.

Great hotel. What a lovely welcome from the relief managers who were working there. The location is perfect in the centre with all the amenities at hand and a short stroll to the waterfront. Comfortable and spotless room

After a lovely drive on a Newmans coach from Fox Glacier , we got dropped off at Wanaka near the lake. 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.
