Rotorua District, New Zealand

Can’t fault this place. Warm, clean, spacious. We had a 1 bedroom room for 4 nights in the school holidays. We were 2 adults and 2 teen girls. The room was perfect. Girls had the bedroom with 2 single beds. Our queen bed was in the lounge.
Kitchenette with oven, and microwave - no stove top. We used the electric frypan to cook our eggs for breakfast
Onsite laundry which we used twice during our stay - $4 per load to wash and $4 per load to dry. Very convenient
The best thing about this place is the location. Walk everywhere. We never used our car during our stay! Less than 5 min walk to the middle of the main shopping centre, walk in the opposite direction 3-4 min and you’re at Fresh Choice supermarket. The gondolas are a few minutes walk away (small climb uphill). Everything is just a few minutes walk
Highly recommend and we would definitely come back to Bella Vista next time we’re in Queenstown

Location good. Friendly check in and out. Quick contact that we had left an item behind.
Room was good size, bed comfy and with enough pillows and blankets, lots of heat available but when the weather gets hotter the lack of ac is not going to be handled by the fan provided. Kitchen adequate for short stay.
Room cleaning by request only is smart but staff only makes the bed and tidies the bathroom. They do resupply tea and coffee but don’t touch the dishes. Since the place isn’t all that much cheaper than places that clean everything without asking, it feels unfriendly. Same with refusing to replenish the milks for tea after day1. Really? The room rate wasn’t different on days 2-5.

And speaking of cost - we made online reservations in New Zealand as New Zealand residents with NZ credit cards and yet when hit the last button saw we were being quoted US dollars, the final total was much higher AND there was no option to change or correct anything.
So, would we recommend Bella Vista Queenstown? Actually yes tho with the above cautions.

Great to read you found our team to be friendly and helpful thanks for letting us know! We do replenish the milk daily, so apologies if your service was missed - if guests do require additional amenities we also ensure that extra items are left stocked for guests to access in the guest laundry. Regarding the currency - we have emailed you directly re your notes - please do take this up with the OTA you made the reservation with, as we are always happy for guests to pay via whatever they opt & currency of their choice if that is the payment plan you have opted for - if you have paid and secured a rate with the OTA (Booking.com etc) and opted to pay via virtual credit card (ie pre-payment) then we can only process the payment as set out by the travel agent. We appreciate it can be confusing as there are so many agents and options, hence we are always open to guests asking any questions and wherever possible suggest guests book direct with us. Safe onward travels and thanks again for coming to stay at Bella Vista Queenstown.

Have stayed previously and will continue to do so. A clean, modern and very quiet Queen Studio unit with a comfy bed and exactly as per website photos and detailed room description so could easily choose a suitable room type based on our requirements. Onsite parking and just an easy ten minute walk into central Queenstown. The desk manager could not have been more helpful.

1. Very comfortable quilt.
2. Room has adequate kitchen equipment eg bottle opener, plates, microwave etc so you can buy back some frozen food and bottled beer if you wish.
3. Hotel supplies shampoo and shower gel.
4. The pickup for the coach for Doubtful Sound/Milford Sound Cruise is conveniently located at the bus stop diagonally opposite the hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights over Queens Birthday weekend. Very clean and tidy, excellent location. We booked directly from their website and got a studio for under $100. It was close enough that we walked into town on both days which was ideal as not drama re not finding park in town

Thank you for your feedback. Parking is certainly at a premium here, so we are glad we can offer free off street parking to our guests so close to town. Hope we can host you again sometime.

We had a really great stay at the Bella Vista, it’s only a couple of minutes to the city and the rooms were very clean and nice. One of the cleaning staff was super friendly and gave us advice on things to do and some tips for when we did the Routeburn which was invaluable, we were even able to leave a bag with them while we did the Routeburn which they put into out rooms when we returned which was amazing of them. Definitely one of the best places in Queenstown!!

Stayed here for 3 nights in Jan. As January is summer in NZ (tourist season in Queenstown) the rate was but expensive ($200/night). Check in/out was smooth and no issues. Got late checkout FOC. Room was clean and has microwave, tea/coffee. Room didn’t have aircon but there was a small fan in the room. Parking on site was a perk. Short distance to city centre.

We were kindly upgraded to an excellent modern king studio room which was very spacious and meticously clean with a comfortable quality bed, good kitchen facilities and big closet, plus an office/breakfast bench with comfortable chair.
Spacious bathroom and shower with good pressure, good lighting for doing your makeup!
Plenty of electrical sockets for charging devices or using hairdryer etc.
Very close walk to gondola/town/lake/supermarket.
Lots of off street parking.
Excellent friendly staff.
Great heater which warms up the room fast, although we only needed it briefly as the room held the heat well and was sunny in the morning.
Very quiet rooms, we had a peaceful sleep despite it being busy in QT for Easter weekend.

I took four teenage boys to QT for a week skiing and my biggest worry was about how to feed them! When I got to the BellaVista and found there was no hob to the oven, I was even more worried, but I needn't have been. The electric frying pan and rice maker worked very well and it was great to have an actual oven as well. The rooms are quite small for four boys and all their gear (although the room for me was perfect) but we coped easily. The heater worked very well so we were always snug and warm. The location could not have been better and the view over the sink was fabulous. Most importantly the managers and people who worked there were all kind, friendly and very helpful. They even found an extra chair so we could all eat round the table together at night. I would suggest anyone intending to self cater for more than two people should bring a sharp knife and a large saucepan with them - I really needed both these things and just had to make do. Would definitely come here again though and recommend it to others.

I was very happy with my two night stay at the Bella Vista. It's right next to the school oval and is a short walk to the town centre and its restaurants, bars and activities.

There are two supermarkets nearby - the closer one is a premium place with top end organic groceries and onsite coffee and food. The other supermarket is just a little further up the hill and has a full range of groceries at lower prices.

The room was clean, bed comfortable and wifi very good. There was also a guest laundry with washers and driers.

I would stay again for location, friendly welcome and comfortable room. There was plenty of onsite parking for guests, too.

Is there AC in the room? If no, will it be hot in Dec and difficult to sleep?
Queenstown, New Zealand
Hi Jimmy! During summer our high temperatures are about 25 degrees, therefore we find that the fan we supply is sufficient as our rooms are quite fresh and have new ventilation systems recently installed. So even though we do not have ac, we trust we provide an enjoyable stay year round with warm rooms over winter and fresh during summer. Thank you for your inquiry Jimmy, please do not hesitate to let us know should you require any further assistance!

No they don't serve food but local restaurants are so close by and some of them deliver! I was so impressed with this delivery service to a motel, especially as we were exhausted when we arrived.
