The motel is located on the main road and reasonably close to shops and eateries. The staff are very friendly and helpful.The motel has Fifty channels of Sky tv, which come in very handy if you have to spend lots of time inside due to very bad weather. I stayed in the compact studio, which had a microwave and toaster.... More

We stayed at the access studio (changed from queen studio as we wanted to stay at ground level) for a night. Staff/owner was friendly and introduced room options to us. Room was clean, though rather compact. Happy with stay.

We stayed here for one night in May 2016. On our road trip around the South Island we stayed at quite few hotels which were great value for money. This was not one of them!!

We did book a compact room, but this certainly lived up to its add. It was very compact. We had to put one suitcase in the bathroom. It was clean and tidy though. At 30% more than other hotels we stayed in it was a little disappointing. Most places we stayed at around $95 were fantastic and we were upgraded... More

This motel is part of a chain of motels which I understand are all the same design. Clean, well maintained and warm room which is only of a modest size but Ok for an overnight stay. It is walking distance to the town center - in good weather.

It was good room (separate room for the kids, including their own TV) and kitchenette and would have been excellent apart from the sound of running water going most of the night. The parking lot was also complete full.

Very helpful owners, free parking and quite central location in what is quite a funky little town. The room had great facilities and were OK for the price but probably need an overall sometime in the future. Whilst we didn't stay here long, I think that I would consider coming back.

We have stayed at Bella Vista motels on several occasions, and always found them to be good value. The unit we had was fairly small, but the room was comfortable as was the bed. Overall, good value for money.
