Studio room was warm and comfortable. Friendly, helpful staff. Walking distance to supermarkets, 12 min walk to cinema, main city shops, restaurants and cafes. On main highway but relatively quiet. It was very cold and wet during my stay but the room warmed quickly. Microwave only for cooking, plus tea, coffee.

Very comfortable bed and great spa bath which was very relaxing after a busy day in the unit. Great heating provided so kept warm in cold night, very clean and people obliging. Situated well in Invercargill as a supermarket within walking distance.

We are regular Bella Vista customers around New Zealand, and the Bella Vista Invercargill measures up to others we’ve stayed in. Comfortable, not badly priced if you choose a compact or at least not too spacious a unit, and only 10 minutes walk from the city centre. The host and hostess are extremely friendly, offering us car washing facilities after... More

First impressions were of a friendly and most welcoming owner, and the rooms as good. The location is good, being just out of the CBD. It is on the main road into town but there is next to no road noise where we were. No complaints about our stay and we would gladly go back.

Motel is conveniently located on the main road into town. I was initially worried that the road would be noisy but this wasnt a problem. Rooms are small, I was travelling solo so no problem for me but if you had a lot of luggage then space could be a concern. Room was very cosy and warm which was great... More

This motel was clean, comfortable, and seemed recently refurbished. There was no cooking facilities, just a microwave (which didn't bother us as we ate out). The host was so friendly and nice! Our only complaint was that the room was quite small and had too much furniture, meaning there was nowhere to put our suitcases without blocking the exit! Not... More

This motel is a good value for money place. Good rooms, clean and not noisy. We've had a good and long chat with the man at the reception and learned a lot about what to do here. And also about farming and deer, very interesting. Small point to improve: the wifi was very slow during our stay.

Stayed the night recently and all was good. Great welcome and was seen to my room and made sure I was all okay. Had good nights sleep and it all fitted the bill for this mid range motel. Good parking for free and good wifi speeds as well. Hotel was quiet and clean and no faults to report really
