Not a bad place though not fantastic, heating in rooms not too good, nicely located (though no views - no "vistas"). Biggest gripe is that we booked online and told them we needed 3 rooms for 11 people. One room was for 4 pax (family room). However, when we got back home they demanded extra money for that room and...

We stayed one night in June 2015 on our way through to Queenstown and as a base to Cardrona ski fields. We found Bella Vista to be value for money, modern and comfortable accommodation and in a perfect location. Straight across the street were, shops, pubs / bars and restaurants and the next street over was the beautiful lake! The...

we were only able to fit in one night in beautiful Wanaka and Bella Vista seemed to be one of the best locations. easy walking distance to everything, and nice clean tidy rooms. my only (little) negative comment would be that we needed to use room key in slot to activate power, which meant we were not able to go...

We stayed here recently. It was everything that was advertised very clean with lovely staff. Great central location, the owner who is in reception had a lot of local knowledge and tips on where to go and what to look at. Had a road report for when we were leaving. Would definitely stay here again it. Wanaka is much underrated...

Rooms were new and fully stocked like an apartment. Two TVs, oven, stove, fridge, microwave, two heaters. Everything was clean, bathroom was new. We only stayed one night but I would highly recommend this for a longer stay at a good price. Free WiFi was great, plenty of parking and no noise.

Great hotel. What a lovely welcome from the relief managers who were working there. The location is perfect in the centre with all the amenities at hand and a short stroll to the waterfront. Comfortable and spotless room

This was our last stay in NZ, we felt that this is the best hotel ever we stay. Free parking in front of our room. Queen size bed, warm heater, small pantry with fridge, small dining table, spacious bathroom with shower and the heating light is the best. You do not feel the cold when showering. Strong free wifi. Very...

Stayed one night on our way to Queenstown. Couldn't pick a better hotel for the price and the location. Easy walking distance to the iCenter, the lake, several trails, and numerous restaurants. Owner was friendly, rooms were clean, bed was comfty.

Really wanted to lift the rating to at least a 3 star, however the rooms are just too 'cosy' to do so. Small rooms, no fridge bar ... however a nice simple spot for a stay over. Tis close to centre of the town though which is good. May be being a bit harsh with the 2 star ... am...
