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.

This motel is very well located in the town with shops and dining options only short walks away. The reception was simple and friendly with the owner/manager. We had an upstairs room which provided a good amount of space to move around the king size (two singles) bed. I though the room was poorly laid out as the only bench... More

Spent one night in Bella Vista Wanaka. Nice Aussie couple host from Launceston TA years ago helped us cooked breakfast. Very clean room and quiet. Located in the town centre. 1 minute walk to the lake beach. Would stay again if pass by. DR YY from Melbourne.

Location is brilliant. A few minutes walk from everywhere. Wanaka is a small town with 4 city blocks in any event. We were promised Kitchenette and what we got was just a microwave. this could be because we asked for downstairs as there were some heavy luggage and we may have got a room that was not usually allocated. Rooms... More

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
