We arrived without a booking but the friendly staff made us feel very welcome. I also asked to inspect the room (I have been caught out at a couple of motels before) which was not a problem. The room was spacious and very clean, the bed was comfortable so we had a really good nights sleep. My only niggle, and...

We spend one night here while visiting Invercargill. Noel was great and very helpful and the room was excellent. Really enjoyed my stay here and will visit again. One of the things I found excellent is the pillows which were great as so often you don't get good pillows and the room was clean and well present. We stayed in...

Got 9 hours sleep in this very cozy and tidy motel after travelling up from Stewart Island. Really impressed. Yes, the room is somewhat compact, but that suits the single traveller. And the staff were very cheerful and smiled a lot. Makes a big difference and I felt very welcome. Highly recommended

We stayed here one night on a self driving adventure of the South Island. This place was clean and one of the few places that still gives you biscuits to have with your tea. A pleasant stay. The beds were comfortable and despite being close to the main road it was quiet.

It is always a pleasure to visit Invercargill and stay at Bella Vista. The hosts are ever so welcoming with recommendations and vouchers for dinner and drinks around the town. I was a-forwarded a late check out to work from motel room before business meetings. Highly recommend for a warm and comfortable stay.

Studio room was warm and comfortable. Friendly, helpful staff. Walking distance to supermarkets, 12 min walk to cinema, main city shops, restaurants and cafes. On main highway but relatively quiet. It was very cold and wet during my stay but the room warmed quickly. Microwave only for cooking, plus tea, coffee.

Very comfortable bed and great spa bath which was very relaxing after a busy day in the unit. Great heating provided so kept warm in cold night, very clean and people obliging. Situated well in Invercargill as a supermarket within walking distance.

We are regular Bella Vista customers around New Zealand, and the Bella Vista Invercargill measures up to others we’ve stayed in. Comfortable, not badly priced if you choose a compact or at least not too spacious a unit, and only 10 minutes walk from the city centre. The host and hostess are extremely friendly, offering us car washing facilities after...
