We were so pleased with our one night stay at this resort! everything was just perfect! even the carpet looked as if it was brand-new. the best location and good facility. even though it had limited internet access but that wasn't concern as I was there for holiday not to surf the internet full time. it was enough for me...

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

I spent a few days in Auckland before heading to Wanaka for the long weekend. I didn't hesitate to book in to Bella Vista Wanaka. It's a fantastic motel,always spotless and in my opinion would have to be the best location in town. Paul and Denise are very down to earth and always have time to suggest places to see... More

My friend and I stayed 7 nights at Bella Vista for a ski holiday. The motel is perfectly located in town centre, within a few minutes walk to ski bus stop, shops, restaurants and Wanaka lake. The room was nice, warm and very clean, with WiFi at a small cost. The drying room for the ski gear was also good,... More

We stayed 3 nights here, a beautifully presented room. Also a very efficient laundry for guests to use. Hosts Denise & Paul were wonderful, they told us of a few places to visit, they were very helpful. The staff were great, very friendly. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you Denise & Paul.

Don't let the word 'motel' throw you off. This is just as nice as any hotel. I recently stayed here on my honeymoon and was overly impressed with the cleanliness and amenities Bella Vista offered. The lodging is a stone's throw away from the town centre and lake. Wifi is free but guests are only given a limited amount of... More
