Was over from Queenstown for a conference, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with a lost wallet which they were very quick to help me with. The room was tidy and reasonable for the price. 1 min walk from town and 2km from my conference venue. Would recommend

Stayed one night, during a long holiday weekend. Downstairs room, no noise from upstairs. The room was very clean, well equipped with microwave, frig, toaster. Free wifi. About a 2 minute walk to the lake. Supermarket is a 2 minute walk. Good sized bathroom. It was very cold the night we stayed so we needed the heater - only downside... More

We ended up Bella vista on Xmas day and well because nothing else was available. Not such a bad choice although a little cramped but facilities were in good shape. Wifi was just ok, a little slow. It's a good location just stone's throw from the lakeside. They gave us a 20% discount coupon on one of the lakeside pubs... More

Good value for money. Very friendly and knowledgeable managers / staff, extremely helpful with regard to places to see. Location, location, right in the heart of a very picturesque town, close to everything. One block from lake Wanaka. Only approx.1 hour driving, 67 KM to Queenstown. Approximately 95 KM as the crow flies to Milford Sound.

A TV with five channels is not very 2016 though. The big dissappointment was that around 9PM the internet just stopped working for the rest of the night and morning(and of course,... More
