We had a great experience at Bella Vista. Karen was super accommodating with our after hours check in and left us a cute note with all of the info we needed. Very knowledgable and informative. The room was spotless and well equipped and the motel is in a great location. Walking distance to everything we needed. Highly recommend!! :)

The review is a bit late but better late than never. Myself and a friend stayed here for a night during a road trip and thoroughly enjoyed staying here! The rooms have everything you need and the staff are great, even giving hints as to where to go and what to do. Thank you for the great stay and highly recommend staying here if you’re visiting Fox.

We loved our stay at the Bella Vista! Rooms are spacious and clean, prime location for visiting restaurants and bars around Fox. Special shout out to the woman who checked us in - she was so so lovely and had great suggestions for walks and what to do for dinner. Can’t thank her enough for her fabulous hospitality

We stayed one night during a road trip around the West Coast. Brilliant service, the hotel is very clean and the manager provided us with information about everything to see and do in the area, as well as hints on which way would be best for us to get to where we were staying next. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be coming back next time we're on this side of the island.

We stayed one night on our way through to Nelson. This motel was small, but well priced and very clean. The Reception lady was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend staying here. It was very interesting seeing the glacier.

We stayed here 1 night and booked 3 rooms for our friends. Very clean and tidy motel with excellent amenities. The motel reception manager was very friendly and very helpful. She pointed out all the attractions in the area. This is probably one of the best accommodation providers in this remote place. WiFi was excellent. Nothing much to complain about. And off course good value for money.

Stayed there in March 2020 on a round trip over the South Island. Centrally located in the village, everything is just a stroll away. Great hospitality and clean rooms. Ours was a little small, but for the stay quite okay. Definitely worth a recommendation.

Stayed for two nights and found the room to be most comfortable. Host in office was excellent and friendly - she offered advise on local points of interest and where to eat. Good value for money and couldn’t see any reason to stay anywhere else if we visit again.
