Motel was not anything fancy but, then again, it was very budget friendly and available at a very short time notice. The most importantly, it was clean and had comfortable mattress. Another plus: it is very close to the lake and the downtown area. We walked to and back from our dinner. Property manager was very friendly, motel has plenty...

Stayed here for one night prior to Milford Sound tour. It was very clean and a comfortable stay. Ray was kind enough to allow us to leave our car parked there even though we had checked, very thoughtful.

The Bella Vista is a basic place but perfect for the stay to do the Doubtful Sound tour. The room was plenty big and well appointed. The shower head was a bit annoying but that's a minor issue. It was very easy to check in and out and served perfectly.

We were greeted warmly as we approached by the franchise owner Ray. Ray welcomed us warmly handing us keys to a rooms. We were pleasantly surprised by the Comfort and amenities in each of the rooms . After putting our stuff away we started to walk to town for dinner. Ray grabbed us in the parking lot and said wait...

"Free Internet"? What a joke! It only works early in the morning before people get up. In the evening....forget about it. And the heating system in our room, simply did not work. We tried to call the office to get assistance, but they were closed after 9:00PM. The room itself was just ok, but no where near worth the $145...

We were very impressed with the Bella Vista at Te Anau. Beds were extremely comfortable, you had everything you might need in studio apartment. 5 min walk into town and the lakeside was only 1 minute down the road. Thoroughly recommended.

Very clean accommodation with some self-catering facilities. Staff take great pride in the place and are very helpful. Good internet facilities with unlimited data for up to 5 devices. Range of room sizes, but the compact ones are very compact! Highly recommend.

We found this motel to provide nice, light, clean and airy rooms. We only stayed one night, as the next day we then left our car at safer parking for the Doubtful Sounds overnight cruise. The location is ideal, being a short walk to the main town centre with the restaurants. Couldn't fault the place in any way.

We booked this stopover to break our journey around the South Island. This was probably our cheapest room ($218) on our journey and we squeezed three adults in - but it really was a squeeze. The beds are quite soft and almost felt like waterbeds. This might suit some people - but we are used to harder mattresses. As a...

We stayed here for 1 night and were unimpressed. The unit had a queen bed and kitchenette. On arrival we discovered notices that said you weren't allowed to cook in the kitchenette, only 'reheat' cooked food. We have never seen a motel in NZ that provides a facility and then says you can't use it! On looking at our booking...
