Bella Vista was the only Motel I'd booked for our trip to NZ and we were only coming to Te Anau to see the glow worm caves. Check in was good with a very friendly man. Our room was great, didn't expect much to be honest but it was very clean and had everything you wanted really. The motel was...

We stayed in the compact queen studio room. It was small but cosy. The room was clean and warm. The motel is at a convenient location, only a short walk away from town center and the lake. The reception was very friendly and helpful. A very pleasant stay.

This was a nice and clean place to stay for our one night in Te Anau. It’s a short walk across the park to the downtown area full of restaurants and shops. The manager was very helpful in giving us pointers for our drive to Milford Sound. Parking and wifi were great.

We had a long drive to Te Anau and Agatha on reception made the check in a pleasurable experience. She was bubbly despite it being the end of her working day and was very helpful. We decided to change the time of our Milford Sound booking the following day and she arranged everything. The rooms were spacious and warm. There...

Nice room, which was clean and tidy. Good lighting, modern bathroom. Only drawback was the wifi was so slow it was basically unusable. Ended up using our mobile data. Staff were friendly. We only stayed the one night.

This is an uncomplicated chain motel. The accommodation is clean, spacious and well equipped. Five minutes walk from the lakeside. This is a great place to stay if you are passing through Te Anau. Recommended.

Stayed here 2 nights in Te Anau. Friendly checkin. Room nice. Great location and super easy to get to the lake or downtown restaurants. Has several bad reviews but don't really know why. Nothing special as far as hotels go but clean and more than adequate for sleeping while visiting. This is a chain hotel in NZ and most cities...

We stayed here for two evenings. We had a queen-sized room. It was small, but clean and it was definitely nice to have a microwave. This hotel is a short walk to the lakefront. The service was also friendly.

We were heading out for a day tour of Milford Sound and wanted a hotel which was close to town and easy pick up point for tour bus. This was a nice, clean hotel. It had a nice, small kitchen, was easy to walk the ten minutes to town to go for dinner at restaurants. No real view, but that...
