“Bella Vista Motel Ashburton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

On our 25 day tour of Australia and New Zealand, we stayed in 11 different hotels, 10 of which we would consider "high class" and high rise. However, the Bella Vista Motel, was our favorite. It is roomy, clean, well appointed, has comfortable beds, nothing lacking. and a homey feel. The owners/operators were very friendly and helpful. We also greatly appreciated the free WiFi internet service.

Our stay was with a Holiday Vacations tour group.

The hotel rooms are nice...good bathrooms, modern, and my studio had a fridge and microwave, long desk and comfortable bed. Heather and Evan were super nice, and accommodating to our many requests. We were there for a sporting event, and during the Christchurch earthquake. Heather and Evan were super accommodating when we had to bring in 10 people to our 3 rooms for a few days, putting down extra bedding and blankets late at night with no fuss. They even loaned one player a bicycle to go to the gym!

The Bella Vist is very nice and very clean. Our room had a great kitchen, two nice tv's, and a spa bath that was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable too. They offer a washer and dryer for their guests, free movies and even loaned me a bike. In fact, they gave me a ride on two occasions when I needed one. We were there when the Christchurch earthquake hit and there were a ton of people looking for rooms and the phone was ringing off the hook and it must have been stressful for them but they were still concerned about making sure we had a good experience.
Also, I felt as though the area where the Bella Vista is located is safe and didn't mind going for walks early or late.
I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Arrived in Ashburton today and received a really friendly welcome from Evan and Heather the Hosts. The Motel is really easy to find, convenient for the town and restaurants and very clean and well presented. It is also really good value for money especially compared with the UK. They have Wireless broadband which is a must for me and so few places have this in NZ. On the whole a great friendly, clean place and I would reccomend it to anyone.
