As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a lovely receptionist. We had just driven a long way so it was nice to be checked in quickly & pleasantly. Room was lovely, clean and warm. Bed and pillows were comfortable.

After finding out in Queenstown that the Bellavista was a chain, we looked for them, and were so happy that the charming city of Invercargill boasts a Bella Vista! We took another queen studio, which means a kitchenette, with good little fridge, microwave, lots of kitchenware, and a real kitchen sink to wash our dishes in. We are getting used...

She gave us information...

Stayed 2 nights for work. Check in and out was a breeze. Room on second story with no lift and with a big suitcase that was a pain. Room was on the small side. Bed was comfortable but space around the bed was limited. Bathroom though was a different story it was huge. Great shower with awesome pressure. Only issue...

Compared to our stay at Bella vista motel in Te Aneau. This was disappointing. We found the room we had was very small, dingy,. No kitchenette, just a microwave. Small bathroom. The location was convenient for stopover.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Having checked your reservation made through Booking.Com, it was made for a Compact Queen Studio. These are smaller style units, with limited cooking facilities which the website does indicate. It may well have been you were in a different style or upgraded unit in Te Anau. Had we...

Checked in late in the day, had rung ahead. Neil greeted us and sorted out rooms. Milk provided and a good range of toiletries. The room was small but well appointed and welcoming. Friendly atmosphere would definitely stay again.

We stopped here a few nights ago while in Invercargill. Our room was comfy, clean and had a great nights sleep. Plenty of restaurants and cafes within a 10 min. Would highly recommend staying here was all we could want for the price. 👍🏻

It was December when we stayed at the Bella Vista in Invercargill but it was numbingly cold and we had hail and it blew a gale. The room was a bit dated and a bit draughty, but the beds were comfortable and the shower was good. The hosts were very helpful.

Many Thanks for your comments, we certainly strive to provide everyone with the best we can offer during their stay with us. However one thing we cannot control is the weather!! The winds/gales we have been experiencing I believe would make any building draughty!! Although we will check that out in case there is a problem. Safe Travels.
