I was surprised by how small the compact studio is, you can't really call it a studio it's a very small bedroom really. Average motel but clean , has ancient heater.Overpriced for what it is at $NZD 105. Scenic suites queenstown is superb at just 120 if you don't mind driving 1 hour from here and their suites are massive and awesome.

We turned up at the Bella Vista without a reservation, and the helpful and welcoming staff found us a room right away. We had not expected to stay in Wanaka that evening, but our plans changed and we needed a room. We tried the Bella Vista simply because we had passed several others throughout our trip around the South Island.

We stayed in a triple room and found it had everything we needed. We had been carrying lunch and dinner supplies throughout the trip, and we were able to use the self-contained kitchenette to make dinner and prepare our breakfast and lunch for the next day. The laundry room was convenient to our room so we were able to get most of our washing done without too much effort. The motel is located very close to shops, restaurants, etc. in Wanaka, so it was easy to walk out for a little shopping and ice cream by the lake. It was nice to be able to walk instead of drive.

We also did not have a reservation at our next planned stop, so the staff took care of booking a room for us at the next Bella Vista (Queenstown) for our last night in New Zealand.

We found this to be a comfortable room at a good price, and we would definitely stay here again.

A recent stay in the spa room at the Bella Vista Wanaka, was great after a day spent out in the beautiful Lake Wanaka area. This very clean and modern Motel is centrally located to all the shops and restaurants, which is a great feature.

After a long day of driving down the west coast and through the Haast Pass, getting to the Bella Vista Wanaka was a welcome rest. The man who checked us in was incredibly friendly and welcoming, and gave suggestions (and discounts) for where to eat. The room was small, but very clean and sufficient for our one night stay.
