Reviewed 26 December 2016

We stayed in a well-equipped twin studio with plenty of room as it was adapted for those with disability. The motel is only a short walk to the lake-front esplanade with shops and restaurants. All one could need for a one night stay or longer.

Wanaka is one of the prettiest places we have ever been to, and we loved both the town and the surrounding areas (which were excellent for hiking and exploring). Bella Vista Wanaka is a basic motel with basic looking rooms, but it is spacious, clean and quiet, and it also comes at a fair price. There is an ample amount...

Motel was very close to Lake Wanaka and in a nice location. Receptionist was very nice and he waited for us after we notified him that we'll be arriving after 8pm. Room was not very big but good enough especially for a stop over. It was clean and contained all the basic amenities. Free parking on site was also available.

Of all the places I've stayed in new Zealand this is this first with free WiFi for guests. No login with restrictions. Just enter the password and it's all go. Full marks for getting with the program. The rest of the motel was fine, comfortable room and good facilities.

We were originally going to go to Kaikoura but because of the earthquake switched to Wanaka. Thought Wanaka would be a sleepy town but we were wrong. The Bella Vista is a block away from the water and we had a lovely view of the lake and mountains. It was nice to be able to park the car and walk...

Central location with ample parking. Helpful and cheerful staff. Our room measured about 340 square feet and was equipped with a small sitting and kitchen area, fridge, kettle, toaster and iron & board. The shower and bath tub were combined. There was a small table and desk. It was clean and quiet and Wi Fi was free.

We had a room for three, with a double and a single bed. It was comfortable and clean, and had adequate space. The motel is very well located right in the middle of town, and we enjoyed a short walk to the lakefront and shops. There was a guest laundry which was useful, but only had one washing machine and...

I had the Bella Vista chain recommended to me by a friend who had visited NZ several times. So after our first stay with them in Franz Josef we decided to seek them out I other resorts if we could. This motel did not disappoint, it had a brilliant location just a five minute stroll from the lake and resort...

For the price we paid for this room we expected more. It was a VERY small room with basically only the bed to sit on to eat/watch tv. It also had no kitchenette so I assume the dishes are to be washed in the bathroom sink? Also, the toilet constantly sounded like it was filling so we turned the tap...

My Fiancé and I stayed at the Bella Vista Motel on a recent overnight stay in Wanaka. This is an ideal motel for a stay in Wanaka - as it is smack in the middle of the town centre. That being said, the Bella Vista was quiet and serenely perched 100 metres from Lake Wanaka. Our room had a superb...
