Good location, nice room and friendly staff”

Modern room and nice staff

I often stay at Bella Vista Motels on all of my NZ trip due to the high standard that I could expect at any of the motels. This was my first time with Bella Vista Wanaka and it was a pleasure to stay there. The room was very nice and modern with in-room wifi (additional charge but the cost was reasonable) and a reasonably large desk for me to do my work. The only downside was the lack of food services at the motel. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Great Service from the Owner - Noisy Fridge”

Location, Cleanliness, Helpful Owner

Great central location, clean hotel, and service from Paul, the owner was terrific. As soon as he found out I was an amateur photographer he immediately volunteered information and the top spots to take photographs. The beds were a little soft for my liking but that's my personal preference. The fridge in the room had the noise of circulating water which was annoying when trying to get to sleep, but no problem I just turned it off for the night and back on again in the morning. If I'm ever lucky eneough to be back in wanaka I'd be happy to stay at the Bella Vista again.

Location, cleanliness

If you've stayed at a Bella Vista Motel you know what it will look like. It is fabulously clean and perfect for a quick stay in any location. The owner in this Bella Vista was very very friendly and helpful (ideas about tours, places to go, loaning us an adapter for charging etc) and we couldn't believe the location. Right in the very centre of the town of Wanaka. 30 secs from the main street and 2 mins from beach etc. Could not have been happier!

Beautiful Wanaka Centre

This motel is probably one of the best motels if you are staying in Wanaka. It is locate within the town centre, very convenient yet quiet at the same time. Located just a stroll away from the lake, restaurants and shops. The motel is clean and the rooms are comfortable, though not too big. There is no aircon (which could be nice in summer...) but there is heating for the colder wintermonths. Enjoyed our stay, would stay again!

Great location two minutes walk from the lake ....”

This was our first visit to New Zealand, prior to which I had not heard of the Bella Vista chain of hotels. However, we ended up staying in three of them in Wanaka, Franz Josef Glacier and Te Anau. This one was in a great location, two minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and bars, and the late itself. Friendly welcome on arrival and provided with useful information on location, sites etc.

Room was clean and functional. With the Bella Vista chain, you know exactly what you are going to get in terms of layout and amenities. Great if you are on a touring holiday as it means that you can arrive, be in a central location, have a great night's sleep and leave for your next destination.

Well-maintained motel in good location”

Pleasant motel just 2 blocks from the shops, restaurants and bars along Wanaka's waterfront. Room was in very good condition. Also, rooms on the upper level have nice views of the lake. Staff was courteous but strangely uninformed about the town. You'll need to do your own research on restaurants, coffee shops, wineries, tours, etc. Head for the i-Site location on the waterfront to get more guidance.
