“Fantastic for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This Motel was fantastic! Travelling with the family (9 ppl) is hard at the best of times, places like this make it far easier. Not only are the rooms comfortable, clean, with all the new mod cons, there is a tennis court / basketball court for guests. this was by far one of the best places we stayed for the family as a whole. The sporting facilities are great for the adults but by far the best for the children whom are often forgotten on holidays whilst being dragged about in cars for prolonged periods.

Thanks guys for a fabulous time.

Great owner / staff at this good accommodation. Very accommodating and personable. The Unit was in good condition and everything needed was available. The location is quiet and only a short walk to the hot pools and town center.

Room Tip: Upstairs - gets the sun

The greatest feature of this motel is its comfort. Great beds, scrupulously clean, well appointed units. We only stayed one night but the welcome was super friendly and the motel instantly impressed. I really appreciated the plunger with the coffee sachet for Sunday morning. Despite being on the main road, the motel is relatively quiet. The only feature which isn't positive is the loud noise from the plumbing from adjacent units - the walls between the units must be quite thin. This is minor however, unless you are wanting to have a sleep in the morning,.

Last minute decision to go to Hanmer with my daughter. Always busy at the weekends, Bella Vista had a room surprisingly albeit almost the last one available. very good location which is quiet but only a short walk to the restaurants and the pools. Welcomed on arrival at 4.00pm, given loads of info. very clean room and well fitted for a short stay. My daughter and I played basketball upon arrival for around an hour and then later under floodlight. Walked into town, had dinner and came back to a warm room and watched a movie on the FULL sky facilities. In the morning the staff even allowed 2 towels for the pools and to drop off later. Seriously good hospitality which made the stay all the more pleasant for my daughter and I. They have a great chocolate Labrador too called bear. Definitely a place to return to or recommend without reservation.

We stayed 2 nights at this Motel and arrived earlier than expected having come from Christchurch and were able to get into the room straight away which was a good size, very clean and comfortable with tea and coffee facilities, kitchenette and a good bathroom with a shower. They provide 2 bath towels and one hand towel plus 2 face cloths which seem to be the normal thing in the motels in New Zealand. The motel is about a 15-20 minute walk out of the town and it is advisable to take a torch when walking back at night but the position was lovely and quiet and the views fantastic. We were told of a walk through woods and parkland called the dogstream walk behind the motel into the village to keep off the road which was lovely to do. The Manager and staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble so we would definitely stay there again. Hanmer Springs has a good range of eating facilities and the Spa/Thermal Pools are lovely and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there.
