We stayed at Bella Vista Wanaka for 4 nights, and couldn't rate it higher. The room was the most immaculate hotel room that I've ever stayed in, even the taps were sparkling! Comfortable beds, and so warm. The management were so helpful and just lovely people and the hotel couldn't have been more centrally located if it tried! Literally no... More

Travelling the South Island with my family staying in Bella Vista in Wanaka was great. The Room we stayed in was very spacious and being in the centre of town it was also very convenient for evenings out and easy shopping. The staff were very helpful at recommending places to eat, things to see and even giving advice on weather... More

Stayed here one night, june 2014. Room 3, with a spa bath tub. Motel is near pub, shops, restaurants, supermarket, lake. Room is well furnished, with a kitchenette with a microwave oven and fridge. Clean and well kept. Only downside is the heating, a single warm air fan heater very close to the bed. Noisy at night so we decided... More

Stayed one night for work. The location is fantastic being very close to all facilities. Room is clean and tidy and I had a spa bath in my room. Really appreciated the electric blanket as Wanaka was freezing and my feet were like ice blocks after being out to dinner. This motel will definitely be on my list if coming... More

Stayed at the Bella Vista for eight nights while undertaking the Sofa Ski Camp on Treble Cone. Perfect location right in the heart of town. Very quiet and peaceful stay. Room was great. I wasn't expecting full service so it was a treat to come back to a clean and tidy room with the bed made after a long day... More

During a recent ski trip stayed at Bella Vista. It's walking distance to supermarket, local bars, restaurants, the lake and shopping. They also have a drying room to dry gear after skiing together with a laundry. Rooms were warm, clean and had everything we needed. Also got an extra snooze in the morning as Cardrona and Treble Cone much closer... More

We recently stayed at the Bella Vista in Wanaka and have no complaints at all. The location is in the centre of town and it is a short walk to everything - supermarket, bus to the ski fields, the lake, restaurants and pubs. The staff were very friendly and gave us some great suggestions for dinner and things to do... More

We recently stayed at the Bella Vista Wanaka again and it was great. We have stayed there several times before and keep going back. The location right in the centre of town only a minute walk from the lake is ideal. The rooms are well catered for and comfortable and the people in reception were, as always, great to talk... More

After our recent stay at Bella Vista Wanaka, we could not have expected anything better. We enjoyed a good day in the snow only to return to our nice warm and cosy room. The owners Paul and Denise had kindly put heaters on as they knew we were going to be late back into our room. What a lovely service... More

Wanaka is a ski resort. That gives you a hint how cold it gets in winter. Therefore it is quite a surprise to discover the Bella Vista choses to heat its rooms with a single, small hot air blower that is both very noisy and inefficient. Moreover you can't leave it on while you are out because you need to... More
