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

I stayed at the Bella Vista Wanaka for two night recently and really enjoyed it. On checkin the manager was very friendly and gave me some great advice in regards to sites for photos in Wanaka and the surrounding areas. He went out of his way to help out which was really nice. I booked my second night in the... More

We recently stayed here as we often stay in Bella Vista Motels when we are traveling as they are consistently good. We did not enjoy this motel, the room was dreary with no outlook, staff not helpful, towels too small, bathroom dark and stayed wet, soap dispenser was like paint stripper, not a pleasurable holiday experience! Won't stay here again.

Our 2 night stay at Bella Vista Wanaka was fantastic. Clean, fresh and comfortable. Located 100 m from town centre with plenty of places to eat and drink plus fabulous scenery from most venues. Paul, our host, was very accommodating and helpful. Internet available for a very reasonable rate - nice and fast too. Thanks Paul for a very pleasant... More

Stayed here for two nights on our tour of NZ and enjoyed the experience. The room was a reasonable size and had all the equipment you would expect from Bella Vista. You can't really go wrong with this franchise chain. Very helpful staff, although we had booked a guided walk already. Excellent location.

Stayed here for five nights in august. The location was so convenient, it's next to the main street of town, so an easy walk to shops, restaurants, bars. The room was clean and warm and the staff friendly and helpful. Happy with everything. Would stay here again :)

Coming from Europe for some days skiing in Wanaka I have been staying in the Bella Vista. As I was travelling without car the location of the Motel (less than 5 min walk to whatever Restaurant or Shop in town) was best choice. As its located in a parallel road to the main road traffic noise either in the night... More
