This motel is getting a bit dated. My studio room was small and dark. Only cooking facility was a microwave. 5 min walk to main shops including supermarkets and good cafes. You need your own transport to get to other attractions such as vineyards - several great vineyard restaurants in the region.....or there are cycle trails and bike hire in...

Thank you for your review, our compact studios are compact and do have a microwave, a toaster and a jug and coffee plunger. They also have free unlimited wifi and all sky channels with your own decoder. Our business customers love them for their comfy beds and good hot showers, For guests staying longer than overnight I recommend our studio...

Reviewed 24 June 2016

We are regular Bella Vista customers around New Zealand, and the Bella Vista Blenheim measures up to others we’ve stayed in. Comfortable, not badly priced if you choose a compact or at least a not-too-large unit, and less than 10 minutes walk to the shopping centre where there’s a good choice of restaurants. Reception services were very good, and offered...

RELIABLE. *Please note....I don't normally rate accommodation 'excellent', but this is based on our overall experience as well as the facilities. We had car troubles, and for a number of reasons the hosts at Bella Vista were very accommodating. The chain of Bella Vista hotels have devised an 'expected' format for the delivery of standardised accommodation for its clients. We...

Thank you thats lovely!, We have the bathrooms on our painting list, just waiting for a lull to get the painter in there. I am going to add a showerdome to try and keep the paint work from needing to be done every year! So glad you enjoyed your stay.

Stayed in Blenheim overnight at the Bella Vista - friendly service, clean and tidy room, and a quiet night's sleep. I particularly appreciated the complementary milk served in a proper glass bottle with a resealable top - what a great idea to minimise packaging.

Overall, not too happy with this motel. - all my cups were disgusting. Most had horrible tea and coffee stains and one had lipstick marks, pricing a poor clean was done. - dirty bathroom. - smelly room upon arrival. - internet kept dropping in and out. I'm a business traveller and stay in many motel rooms. This one needs a...

I am sorry you were not happy with your room, Most of our reviews rave about our cleanliness and it is something we pride ourselves on, we are undertaking a review of the cups in the room and find a few with tea stains after the guests have washed the cups themselves. There is no excuse for a lipstick mark...

I did not book this myself and it was booked quite late so we probably did not get the pick of the rooms. What we did get was small but clean and with all that was needed for one night. The central location meant that eating out was easy. Fine for one night, but if staying longer go for a...

Thank you for your review, I agree our compact room is suitable for a short stay or for one person, Our standard rooms with full kitchenette are more comfortable for a longer stay. I hope we see you again

We found the Bellavista accommodation excellent within strolling distance of the CBD, The staff were warm and friendly very welcoming and we had a lovely quiet nights sleep. We would highly recommend that anybody travelling to Blenheim stay at Bellavista and in addition travelling throughout the country we would recommend that they stay at Villa posters which is situated in...

Stayed for 2 nights visiting family. Good being close to central area - cafes, restaurants & supermarket .A huge plus for some people would be that these motels are dog friendly.Small unit with limited privacy.

Thank you for the review, Alfie loves it when dogs come to stay, perhaps next time you could stay in one of our standard rooms which have more room and less foot traffic.

Reviewed 31 December 2015 via mobile

A Nice motel, it was maybe about 800mtrs to the center of town. Small rooms but very neat and tidy. There was no hairdryer. Parking was off the street and easily accessible. This time we had 2 separate rooms, one upstairs one down. The overall cost was on par with what we have been paying.

Thank Chris I
BellavistaBlen, Manager at Bella Vista Motel Blenheim, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you did not ask about the hairdryer, it is heavily disguised by being on the wall next to the mirror in the main lounge/ bedroom area. As it is not in the bathroom many of our guests miss it. We also have portable hairdryers available on request.

This motel is in a great location. Easy walk to town centre and restaurants etc. Our room was very roomy and had a couple of comfy chairs for relaxing, reading, watching TV etc. Sky decoder in the room with all the sport channels is great. Very comfortable bed. Will stay there again.
