“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Our stay at the Bella Vista in Blenheim was wonderful with exceptionally clean and well equipped rooms. Ross (manager over the summer period) provided excellent service, was very friendly and full of tips and advice regarding our trip around the Marlborough Sounds, even providing a BBQ and utensils with which we could cook our freshly gathered mussels! The central location was also great for exploring Blenheim. We would definitely stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bella Vista, the room was clean and well presented, the Main Street was a 2 min walk away and the owners were really helpful - recommending cafes and activities nearby. Would definitely stay again.

Short walk to resturants and places to eat.
Safe location, its in a pocket of motels.
Overall good job.

Stayed here after rafting the Clarence river for 5 days and it seemed like paradise.The shower was brilliant. We walked to Raupo restaurant and enjoyed a fabulous meal.Our hosts drove us to the airport in the morning which was a huge bonus.We are a couple in our early 70's.

Stayed for two days at this venue. Laundry room available too f you need a wash for your clothing. The hosts were great and very informative with Blenheim on vineyards recommendation. Supermarkets were just behind it and you could stock up for your next drive to the next city.

Thanks for your review and observations. It’s easy for us having the supermarket so close as well.
