Only stayed for one night but would stay there again if ever back in the area. Room was spacious, clean and warm. Highlight was the Czech girl on reception. Very helpful, knowledgeable and goes above and beyond most hotel staff I've come accross 👍

The room was quite large for two people, clean and tidy, you can have everything you need in the room, cooking equipment including microwave, water boiler, eating utensils and etc. The location was good, with stores nearby where you can get essentials. The staff was nice and helpful.

Immediately upon arrival we were welcomed and taken good care of. The folks that operate this Bella Vista are very nice people (as we have found with all of the Bella Vistas that we have stayed at). They gave us good tips and directions for where to go to eat and visit, which was very much appreciated. The queen studio...

The motel is right in the centre of this small town and a mere 5-minute walk from Fox Glacier guides, which is the main reason for tourist to take a pit stop in Fox Glacier. Our room was on the ground floor and right next to our parking. So our car was right outside our room which made light work...
