Bella Vista Motel Ashburton
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Ashburton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 24, 2012

The Bella Vista Motel is conveniently located on the main road on the edge of Ashburton. I had a one bedroom apartment which I can best describe as modern, clean and functional. The motel owners were very welcoming and helpful with local directions and responsive to other queries I had.
My only concern with this motel was the noise from the main road. Despite double glazing I was awoken in the early hours of each morning as trucks started their travel on the main road. Although this was my experience it could be that guests in other rooms in different aspects may not have the same experience. It's a shame because everything else was so positive for the Bella Vista in Ashburton.

Room Tip: Ask for a room downstairs furtherest from the main highway.

We were greeted by Allison, the Asst. Manager, and she was cheerful and very helpful, providing us with a map with recommendations were to have dinner. The room was spotless, and we had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. If we were to pass through Ashburton again, we'd stay here.

We arrived a little later than expected and the room we had booked had been re-booked by the people who had stayed the previous night. We were upgraded from studio to a one bedroom apartment without any extra charge. The manager was very friendly and went out of his way to make sure everything was ok in the apartment before we took possession. The door locking system was fantastic - no way could an intruder get through the door without the key. The bed was awesome - firm mattress which was the same as we have at home would have preferred a firmer pillow tho - soft pillows don't do anything for my back - but will take my own next time. Bathroom was great - even had a spa bath - only problem was the toilet roll holder - not the easiest to get to. Would recommend to friends and family looking for an inexpensive, clean motel room - a home away from home experience.

Comfortable,clean and convenient. The hosts were most obliging and helpful. A great place to stay when you have flown into Christchurch and are heading south - just an hour's drive.

Room Tip: They are all good

Location is hard to beat: right there on Route 1. The building is clean as a whistle, well-laid out, proper. The manager was VERY friendly, helpful, eager to suggest - top-notch!
The room itself is small, but very nice for a hotel: doubly-locked door, refrigerator, microwave, kettle, full set of all utensils (the bottle opener, corkscrew, wine glasses - all there). A TV set, of course.
The bathroom is fantastic - walk-in shower, super-clean toilet, fresh towels, the towel heater.
Very quiet, nice room. HIGHLY recommended.

Arrived at this hotel late at night after a flight from Melbourne and a drive from Christchurch airport with our four month old. We just needed to put our baby to bed and the staff where very accommodating, had the porta cot all set up & in a separate room which was fantastic! Laundry facilities on site also great. Not that much to do in Ashburton itself, but a great spot to stop for a couple of nights.

On our last night in New Zealand we stayed at Bella Vista in Ashburton which is close to Christchurch (80km). We had booked a 2 bedroom unit which was in the back of the building, far enough away from the noisy Route 1. One kingsize bed was in the living room, the other room had 2 single beds.The apartment was very clean and modern, kitchen equipped with everything necessary to cook a meal (microwave, 2 hotplate stove). The bathroom was roomy and contained not only a large shower but also a bathtub with whirlpool function.Beds comfortable, extra blankets and pillows, free internet, a newspaper the next morning and milk. The owners were friendly and helpful. One of the best places we stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back if you do not like traffic noise.
