Very friendly and helpful management coupled with a clean well kept motel make this an excellent choice. Rooms are a very good size. It is just a short walk to many restaurants. It is very helpful to have many of the menus included in the in room compendium. An excellent choice in Te Anau

We stayed 3 nights in TeAnau at Bellagio Vista. Trish could not have been nicer. We checked in early and were able to check out late. We had a small kitchenette but the bbq was just outside, which we made good use of. The room was compact but it was extremely easy to store things so as not to clutter.... More

Trish took us under her wing and arranged the details of our booking to Doubtful Sound including a pick up at the motel and arranging for a trip lunch. We could not have had a more pleasant stay. .

A very easy place to stay. Rooms were well provisioned, clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee were topped up daily and fresh milk was available as were free internet and local and national phone calls. Although not on the lakeside, the motel's position is convenient for both town centre and lake.

We had a Queen Size One Bedroom apartment with full cooking facilities and it was outstanding, and very spacious. The staff were very helpful, and the location was perfect for a good night's sleep. The spa bath was great too.
