We checked in here for a night. The room was pretty nice, the beds were a little small though.

Good:
- LCD flatscreen
- fridge
- microwave
- pretty clean
- friendly and helpful owners
- free (but believe limited) wifi

To improve:
- curtains don't block out the light
- walls are pretty thin
- located at the edge of town
- no storage/rack for suitcases
- room is pretty small

Good basic motel.

We booked the morning we were to arrive and we were treated to great service, a comfy room, with good kitchen, great shower, nice and warm and everything we wanted!

Not as close to town, but a nice quiet end of town down by the farms and only a moments drive into town.

Thanks!

We spent one night in Hanmer in July and due to the school holidays, other motels in town were fully booked. We were pleasantly surprised by Bella Vista. Whilst a wee way out of town it was modern and clean. It also had a spa bath which the kids enjoyed. We had a one bedroom unit (king bed in main living area). Good value for money.

Room Tip: One bedroom units are great for families

Bella Vista is a chain of motels that we have stayed at on various occasions. This one was just like the others but perhaps a bit older and tired looking. Not as clean and sparkling as expected for an "Executive King Suite" I had requested ground floor accommodation on booking, but nobody responded to my request to say that "Executive King" is only on the first level! We were only aware of this as we were being shown to the unit and the lady started climbing the outside stairs. How disappointing was that. If I had known this I would have reserved at another motel altogether.

Room Tip: Did not have luck choosing a good room. So no tip I'm afraid.

This Motel was fantastic! Travelling with the family (9 ppl) is hard at the best of times, places like this make it far easier. Not only are the rooms comfortable, clean, with all the new mod cons, there is a tennis court / basketball court for guests. this was by far one of the best places we stayed for the family as a whole. The sporting facilities are great for the adults but by far the best for the children whom are often forgotten on holidays whilst being dragged about in cars for prolonged periods.

Thanks guys for a fabulous time.

Great owner / staff at this good accommodation. Very accommodating and personable. The Unit was in good condition and everything needed was available. The location is quiet and only a short walk to the hot pools and town center.

Room Tip: Upstairs - gets the sun

The greatest feature of this motel is its comfort. Great beds, scrupulously clean, well appointed units. We only stayed one night but the welcome was super friendly and the motel instantly impressed. I really appreciated the plunger with the coffee sachet for Sunday morning. Despite being on the main road, the motel is relatively quiet. The only feature which isn't positive is the loud noise from the plumbing from adjacent units - the walls between the units must be quite thin. This is minor however, unless you are wanting to have a sleep in the morning,.
