Motel is clean and modern. Nice internet speeds and is unlimited, great location, walking distance to the supermarket. Kitchen is maybe in my view not as comprehensive (ie vegetable colander that one could find with some other motels) and with the fridge next to the largest bed in the studio layout which can be a bit distracting. Cooking smells can...

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for cheap, clean, warm and comfortable. Great location right in the centre of town, Can walk everywhere. Rooms are a little small but sufficient if you plan to be out exploring all day. They provide free wi-fi. We found this property great value for money. We would definitely stay...

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....

We’re disappointed you were not able to enjoy your stay with us. As per the overall Trip Advisor comments, we are confident that most guests normally have either an excellent or very good stay – and in particular find the location very handy to town. Please note that Bella Vista is a brand name and should not necessarily be taken...
