Bella Vista Motel Fox Glacier
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Fox Glacier
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 25, 2013

I stayed here in the off season so it was quiet, clean and very comfortable, but guessing its like that year round. The front desk offered suggestions of things to do and where to eat and catered those suggestions to my situation. The room was very clean and comfortable. The price was well within normal for the accommodation supplied. The view from most rooms is excellent if you like sunsets.

What a wonderful stay in a wonderful place. Our rooms was perfect. Guest reception was friendly and helpful. Lake Matheson is nearby. We really appreciate all this great little motel has to offer and look forward to return trips.

Loved Bella VIsta Motel, the BEST that I have seen during my stay in South Island and will stay again next time in Fox Glacier. I would highly recommend Bella Vista Motel. Price is very good based on their standards.
Close to all amenities. Loved the bathroom... I was very impressed. It was spacious, clean, new, had a heating rack, heater etc. The Bed was comfortable, unlike other places that had very soft beds.
We had Breakfast at Lake Matheson Cafe.. very nice
Both Jill & Bill was very nice & friendly. Thankyou!!

Good standard Bellavista Motel with nice barbecue area. Usual facilities and staff very helpful, especially when price booked through Hotels.com was HIGHER than that directly at motel and Hotels.com would not honour their price match pledge.

Bellavista motels were good standards throughout our stays in New Zealand but did vary slightly in facilities offered between properties.

However DO NOT book through Hotels.com as their prices are higher than direct bookings which also give better cancellation times and discounts for loyalty bookings.

We arrived in Fox Glacier and had lunch at a local cafe (Lake Matheson Cafe) and the Bella Vista was recommended as the best place to stay in Fox Glacier. We weren't disappointed!!!!!!. From the time we arrived until the time we left we were given excellent service and advice about Fox Glacier attractions and our onward travel. Jill booked us a Helicopter Flight (Awesome Experience) at a discounted price. We stayed 2 nights and the room was spotless, well appointed and the complimentary "wifi" was a bonus. Our next destination was Wanaka and as there was a Bella Vista Motel there, Jill offered to make a reservation for us. She even arranged a discount on the room rate, which was much appreciated.
I would highly recommend Bella Vista Fox Glacier for locality, service and quality.
We were unaware of the Bella Vista Group of motels until staying in Fox Glacier and have stayed in several since and all met our expectations.

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 3 with huge bed and outdoor seating.
