Bella Vista is within easy distance of a great coffee shop and within walking distance of the centre of town. It is also close to the bus route. The unit we had was small, but clean and tidy. It was functional as we were touring and only needed to sleep there at night. We arrived fairly late and the person at reception phoned a local pub to stay open to provide us with a meal, which was helpful.

Thank you for the hospitality. We loved our stay! It is such a great location being so close to the city. We were able to walk to most places which was very convenient. WiFi and services were excellent. Will definitely stay here again!

First experience at the Bella Vista chain and it was fine. I arrived early evening and stayed two nights to allow a day to explore the city and its surroundings. The Bella Vista is a little out of the centre so you'll have a reasonable walk or short drive to reach the sights and main restaurants. Perhaps more nearby are open weekdays... but I was there on Sunday. No hot water for the shower on my second day but I was leaving early and no-one was around to report it to...

We found this place by accident, no booking, Carol (Manager) gave us an excellent price for a 3 bedroom apartment. Very clean, only downside was 2 lots of stairs to get up to the bedrooms. But it was very clean, beds were very comfortable, quiet and Carol was very helpful and friendly. Would easily go back there again.

We stayed here at the start and finish of a self drive tour round the South Island. The place is motel style and the bedroom and shower room were fairly basic. Tea etc supplies and cooking facilities if wanted. It was convenient for the rental car pick up a couple of blocks away but I suspect not much else. There's not much in the way of restaurants round here but the pub up the road did adquate pub grub. Coffee bars are around for breakfast if you don't self cater. Reception was friendly and helpful but closes at 8pm so care with check in.
