Great location close to Glow Worm Caves and driving on to Milford Sound. Bella Vista Te Anau is very friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and very comfortable. There are some great local restaurants too. Whats not to like, go ahead book.

My Partner and I were booked into Bella Vista for 2nights to attend Milford Sound Cruise, Staff were lovely, Motel close to the beach and town. Bed was comfortable and rooms are cleaned daily. Guests also have access to Laundry Facilities which always helps. One site parking also available.

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Bella Vista Motel in Te Anau. The reception staff was very helpful and courteous. Our room was very clean. We appreciated being just a short walk from the lake and a short walk through a park to the main shopping area.

Spent two days here. We it was clean, in a great location (minutes to town centre and the lake) and our room (18) had three sides making it well ventilated in the summer. The laundry was clean and efficient and the BBQ spotless. We're definitely stay again.

We stayed in the Bella Vista for one night. The bed was large and comfortable, the room was clean and spacious and contained all the facilities we could need. We even had a second bedroom. This is the second Bella Vista we stayed in and they are all presented to a high standard.

This motel is a basic motel but very nice. It is clean, has more than you need--frig, microwave, sink, TV, fairly large desk. Wifi is what you expect but often do not get--you connect one time, and after that, every time you got within 20 feet of your room it autoconnected. You could have multiple devices. I noticed it in...

We were here in Te Anau for a night in order to travel to Milford Sound early in the morning. We had stayed in Bella Vista motel in Queenstown before staying in Bella Vista Te Anau.
