Three of us stayed a night in a one bedroom apartment at Bella Vista Wanaka in winter 2015. This was everything we expected - clean,comfortable, and the central location in Wanaka is a winner (although on the night the All Blacks beat the wallabies the noise of the town was close too!). Unusual layout with the bedroom accessed through the...

My partner and I travelled to NZ Wanaka for a snow trip and wanted somewhere comfty and relaxing to unwind after snowboarding. We also wanted somewhere with a microwave so we could not have to buy dinner all the time. Bella Vista was exactly this! The rooms were clean, spacious, running hot water, comfy bed, warm, off the main street...

Just perfect for two nights in Wanaka. Walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. The room was very tiny however cosy and ideal for us. I noticed it was fully booked the two nights we were in town which indicated to me the excellent pricing compared to other options. My husband and I were on a tour of the South...

Booked this motel after reading other review on tripadvisor and decided it should be located very close to the lake. And yes, it's true.. Only one block away from Lake Wanaka and pretty much everything else at the city center area including NewWorld supermarket only a short stroll away. The owner are very friendly upon check in, free wifi, and...

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...
