“Good location”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We stayed at Bella Vista for 2 nights on route to Queensland. Hosts Denise and Paul could not have been more helpful with their advice on where to go for dining and help us sort out accommodation for our onward trip through South Island. They were wonderful! First class service! Our room was small, but we did arrive late, it was spotless, clean and well equipped! It was right in the town and the sights were amazing! Paul also gave us great directions for good sights and wonderful walks, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks folks we certainly enjoyed our short stay in Wanaka.

We spent two relaxing days at this hotel in Wanaka. Close to shops, restaurants and bars but still quiet. Our suite was spotlessly clean, well equipped and Paul and his wife were great hosts . Gave us good advice about the area and places to visit which we would not have found without them.
The drive to Wanaka from the north west on the Sr6 has stunning scenery and when you leave Wanaka for Queenstown go via Cardona and visit Arrowtown and stop at Arthur's pass to photograph the impressive gorge.

Room Tip: All the rooms are conveniently located and quiet at night. Parking good too right by your unit.

The rooms were basic, clean and tidy, modern enough. My partner checked in at reception so I cannot comment on the service. The location is good, a close walk to town and the lake. Had a good sleep here, no noise light etc. Cheap and good value.

Ideal for walking around town centre to bars, cafés & shops. We had a great family room for 5, clean modern, well laid out with big bathroom. Wanaka is very special, put it on your list when visiting NZ. Love NZ, in fact I could live there!!
Do the drive via Cardrona to Queenstown - wow!

We arrived at the hotel, site unseen as we booked off the internet the night before due to a change in travel plans. Denise was wonderful and welcomed us fellow Aussies. We were given an upgrade to a family suite which was fresh, modern and extremely clean. A land slide was delaying us moving any further and Denise constantly kept us informed of the road closure by speaking to a friend on the other side of the closure. We checked out in the morning but returned to get an update from Denise. When the report was delayed, Denise recommended and booked our next nights accommodation. We would have been lost without a friendly place to stay and help us along our journey. Denise even directed us towards a fabulous Italian restaurant just next door. We highly recommend the Bella Vista Wanaka. Thank you again Denise, your a gem.

We arrived at the hotel 1:30hrs earlier than the check in time but the host told us that we will get the room by 2 pm only but we felt ok with him and we njoyed at the lake wanaka and had a gud lunch at a nearby indian resto. The hotel is also located in the city center. But whats gud is thr morning view of the lake and the sunrise over the mountains. Over all we had a comfortable one night stay

We just needed somewhere to refresh and re-energise after travelling around the South Is for 12 days in a motorhome and found the Bella Vista Wanaka, a very clean and located close to the main streets. Paul and Denise, fellow Aussies, are wonderful hosts - very generous and provided info on local eateries (including discounts) and what to see while in Wanaka. Paul shared his vast knowledge and tips on places to visit on our future travels and how to get to them, even phoned ahead to our next stop to arrange a discount for us. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them - just want to make sure you get the best value while in their town.
Highly recommended if you are planning a trip to Wanaka or just dropping in.
Queenslanders!
