Room was quite small but pleasant enough, bed comfortable, only 2 bath towels and no spare ones for 2 people. It was average in most respects. No milk was provided at all for tea or coffee. Service was goog when Hubby couldn't work the sky TV

It is standard practice to supply only 2 towels in a studio unit for 2 people there are towels for the pools in the office for you to use FOC and milk was offered to you when you checked in More

What a lovely stay. Bella Vista will be our first choice for accommodation whenever we visit. A lovely, friendly and helpful hostess on arrival and check out. Lovely cosy room and very clean and quiet. My only disappointment was not getting to say hello to your beautiful dogs.

Stayed one night. Nothing special. Room clean but old hair in bathroom sink plug hole. Also ashtrays placed along the corridor outside the rooms were overflowing with cigarette butts. Won't stay again as there are better places in Hanmer.

This was a little cheaper than the others but it was about 10 min. Walk to town. It was motel style with parking, no food facilities on the road into town. It did the job. Clean and tidy.the bed was comfortable.

Lovely motel chain. Clean and fully equipped. This one is at the edge of town but has great views. We stayed with our 2 young children (2 and 4) and the second bedroom was perfect for them. The spa bath was an unexpected bonus as was the satellite Tv.

A friendly welcome and a lovely clean room greeted us after a long and tiring journey. Bed was comfortable and at last we find a motel with a toaster in the room. Unfortunately due to a large fire and power outage it was quite late in the morning before we had our toast and coffee. As it was late afternoon... More
