good value so close to centre of town. Reliable with good amenities. The paragliders land in the school field in front of the motel providing good entertainment when you are back at the motel. Our hosts were extremely helpful. There is a convenient motel laundry. The local supermarket is 200m up the road if needed. Overall good value in premier resort.

Hi Jane,

Thanks for your great comments - we are all really pleased you enjoyed staying with us at Bella Vista - as you say, watching the paragliders land in the field next to us is a wonderful sight, as they float down quite often on a calm day!!

We hope your return journey home went smoothly and hope to host you again next time you are visiting Queenstown!

With thanks and regards,

Liz & Lee

We stayed here for 2 nights in an Economy Room and 3 nights 2 weeks later in a spa room with lovely mountain views. Both were good value, the beds were comfortable, the rooms clean and the staff friendly. Heating and air con available.Vouchers were included for the internet. The economy room had a microwave and a fridge with well stocked tea/ coffee/ plunger coffee and hot chocolate sachets. The more expensive spa room also had a well equipped kitchen and dining table. We were doing lots of hiking and enjoyed a soak in the spa bath! Loads of hot water. The motel is a short, fairly flat walk into town and was very quiet at night. Free parking, which was a bonus for Queenstown.

Dear Tess & Dave,

Thanks for taking the time to submit a review on your recent stay! It is great to know you felt well looked after during both stays and you enjoyed the complimentary Wifi vouchers!.
The houseekeeping team work relentlessly to ensure the studio rooms are kept "spotless", we will definitely pass ony our comments to them.
As you mentioned, it is nice to have a soak after a long tramp and we do find our Spa rooms very popular with hiker and weary skiiers!

We hope to host you again next time you are visiting Queenstown - thanks again for choosing Bella Vista Queenstown.

Kind regards,
Lee Exell

We only stayed here for a single night and booked through the iSite. The motel is located next to the school playing fields and is only a short walk from the town centre even with wheelchair.

Our room was comfortable and well equipped. No free internet voucher was provided (the only place we in NZ we stayed at without some free access) but we still had the voucher we had been given free at another Bella Vista and the voucher code worked allowing us access.

Very warm and helpful welcome and continuous support from the front desk staff.

Consistently clean, compact room but very well configured with modern trimmings all in good order plus comfortable bed.

Excellent location on reasonably quiet street with close access to town or gondola.

Bathroom very good quality, excellent shower.

Complimentary limited wifi welcome.

Only downside is noisy guests upstairs, clomp clomp!

We stayed here over winter for a snowboarding holiday. Great location, got to watch the paragliders land through our window. Easy 10 minute walk to town or to the bus to the slopes. Hosts were very friendly and gave us some great tips on where to eat. Would recommend to my friends. Even closer walk to the supermarket.

Room was compact, but it was comfortable with heating and good value for money.

We used this motel as a base so my partner and I could travel around the Queenstown area and Otago. Perfect setting, only 10 minutes from town on foot, and we had a spot to park the rental car each day - or could leave it parked if we went on foot. We had a room with kitchenette which was perfect, they even provided a plunger (cafetierre) for the coffee. Nice clean cutlery. Spacious room, comfortable bed. We used the laundry room several times: washer and dryer. So convenient over a fortnight. We found everything was very clean, the room was serviced daily by a lovely team. The reception staff were all very friendly and really helpful. Good selection of rooms, ours was up a flight of stairs (not a problem for us) and each room had a balcony area to sit outside if you wished. Wifi worked well. Definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: we had a studio room with kitchenette - room 21 - no problems at all with it. Up a flight of stairs...
