Stayed here one night, comfortable well equipped room, awesome free wifi, comfortable bed. Tea & fresh coffee provided. Central location close to shops, bars & resturants. Busy town as always. Recommend, like most others in the Bella Vista chain, a quality motel.

Just behind the shops on the main street so a short walk through the carpark to the lake. Staff very friendly and helpful. On check-in we were given a voucher to use at the Tavern which saved us 10 per cent on our dinner. Room small but comfortable and clean

In Italian Bella Vista means Beautiful View. Apparently, in Wanaka, it means great view of a Car Park. Unless you're a fan of car parks, it's somewhat misleading. The good? It was clean The bad? How long have you got? To give you an idea... The soap was screwed to a wall. The bath gel was screwed to a wall....

Not much more than a place to sleep. Bare bones tiny room with little soundproofing. No extras or hospitality Not impressed with this chain. Large supermarket is about a block away. Very close to shops and lake

Well location in Wanaka town. Nice and cozy room, not so big but was enough for us. Beautiful views and has also private parking. Staff was kind and helpful. We'd a great stay there. Would recommend it.

This motel is very centrally located. That's about the best thing I can say about it. It was clean and tidy I guess, but otherwise completely underwhelming. It was the most expensive motel we stated at during our trip and was not value for money. The toiletries comprised a single dispenser in the shower which was combined bodywash and shampoo....

The family appartment number 9 is perfect for photographers. It's dark like a glow worm cave, so you certainly won't have any annoying reflections on your screen when editing pictures. Even with open curtains I literally wasn't able to read a magazine without turning the lights on. Same thing in the morning, noon and the afternoon.

Thank You for your comments. We have recently had our windows reflective tinted so guests can enjoy the view from the room while retaining there privacy. This also helps to prevent the rooms from over heating in the summer. The downside to this is the rooms are slightly darker. Since your feedback we have replaced the lightbulbs in Room 9...

This was our first stay in a Bella Vista Motel. We are seriously impressed (as we also stayed later on during our trip at the motel in Hokitika). The motel was spotlessly clean, and well appointed. It is in a great location, right in the heart of the town, but not affected by street noise at night. Highly recommended. We...

My partner and I stayed here during our trip to NZ for one night. The staff were really accommodating, allowing us to park there longer after we had checked out so we could go skydiving. The hotel is so central to all the bars and restaurants in town. Our room was comfortable, with a good bathroom and a small fridge....

We stayed in a well-equipped twin studio with plenty of room as it was adapted for those with disability. The motel is only a short walk to the lake-front esplanade with shops and restaurants. All one could need for a one night stay or longer.
