We stopped here a few nights ago while in Invercargill. Our room was comfy, clean and had a great nights sleep. Plenty of restaurants and cafes within a 10 min. Would highly recommend staying here was all we could want for the price. 👍🏻

It was December when we stayed at the Bella Vista in Invercargill but it was numbingly cold and we had hail and it blew a gale. The room was a bit dated and a bit draughty, but the beds were comfortable and the shower was good. The hosts were very helpful.

Many Thanks for your comments, we certainly strive to provide everyone with the best we can offer during their stay with us. However one thing we cannot control is the weather!! The winds/gales we have been experiencing I believe would make any building draughty!! Although we will check that out in case there is a problem. Safe Travels.

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...

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.
