“Fulfilled all requirements at a reasonable price”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Last weekend I stayed at Queenstown's Bella Vista after getting a deal from Wotif. I have stayed in a number of Bella Vista Motels so I was interested in seeing what this one was like. Great location, easy five minute walk into the centre of town - but far enough away to be quiet:) The room was very clean and functional - it had no view but it also meant that it was cool which was a blessing in the very hot temps. It is close to a large supermarket and a garage so that is useful if you are cooking for yourself. Great parking if you have your own vehicle. The only problem was the thin walls - all noises from contiguous rooms would travel straight through - I needed a good sleep and that was reduced due to external noises. Overall though, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: As for one overlooking the school

Queenstown was our base in our recent visit to this area of New Zealand. We stayed at the Bella Vista for a couple of nights before heading out to to the Milford Sound Trek. Doug and Margaret were very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful big king room which was bright and airy and very comfortable. While we were out on the trek, we were able to store our luggage at the hotel for a very small fee which was great. Upon our return from the trek we spent 2 more nights at the Bella Vista, in a smaller but very comfortable quiet room.
The service is excellent and the rooms, while simple, are very comfortable and practical. Grocery stores are very close by, and Queenstown is easy to get around and it is a very short walk into the main town from the Bella Vista.
We also really appreciated the use of the laundry facilities that are very handy to use.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: This is such a practical place to stay and we highly recommend it.

We had a great stay, We stayed 2 nights in a King suite. It was a perfect location to go out for meals and look around queenstown. It was what we expected and the price/value for money was great. The service we recieved was very welcoming, the rooms were nice and clean and due to our experience here we are off to stay in the bella vista when we arrive in Wanaka! Thanks :)

We stayed at Bella Vista for 4 nights in mid February in a King Suite. We were very happy with the accommodation, as it was just what we were looking for. Very quiet at night, convenient location with flat (non hill) very short walk to town centre and lakefront. Also short walk to supermarket. All in all, very clean, very quiet and convenient. Our room had a bar fridge, microwave and sink, as well as plates and utensils. Easy to have your own breakfast there. Also, the filter coffee sachets in the room were great in the morning. No view to speak of, but the windows open so you have fresh air if you want it, and there was a table with 4 chairs outside our room on a "patio" area, if one wanted to sit outside. I would recommend it to travellers who want a good nights rest, some kitchen facilities, flat walking to town.

Room Tip: We were in room 21 upstairs on the corner, and it was a good location though no view, unless outside...

Bella Vista is in a great location being close enough to the centre of Queenstown to walk or a very short drive away in the car. We did not hear any traffic noise during the night, but were entertained by some backpackers doing the Haka (very badly) on their way home. The rooms are quite spacious, spotlessly clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. The bathroom facilities are excellent and immaculate.
The staff were helpful, friendly and a pleasure to deal with, assisting us with where to eat, park and what to see during our stay. Thanks Doug.

All together it was an enjoyable two nights stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor if stairs are no problem also one away from the road and the walkw...

Great accommodation, well priced, a 5 minute walk to the main street, comfortable beds, kitchenette, such friendly and helpful staff. We recommend u take the cable car to the top to eat dinner as it was well worth it for the panoramic views. Also, drive to Glenorchy for breathtaking scenery. Thank you for an excellent experience.
