Good place to stay for a night. Great room and great bed. Clean and great managers. Great area to get together for some wine with friends. Has internet which was running fast. Friendly staff and helpful with tips on where to eat and drink close by.

We have stayed at Bella Vista motels in other towns but this was rather disappointing by comparison to others. We had booked a double room so didn't expect a vast space but it was tiny. No kitchen facilities so was ok for a one night stay but not suitable if you want to self cater.

Thanks for your feedback. We have numerous room types from the entry level compact studio (the one you booked and stayed in) through to our larger studio units. We also have 1 , 2 and 3 bedroom units and it all depends upon each individual needs and budget. All Bella Vista Motels are the same in that we all have...

Very friendly hosts, spotlessly clean and generous provisions of tea/coffee and toiletries. Good location. Plenty of space and within walking distance of Christchurch and many good restaurants. A great location to return to before flying home again.

We have stayed in Bella Vista's in provincial towns in the South Island on a few occasions during 2016 so were accustomed to the model and standard. This one is pretty average by comparison. Same format as others but not as sharp as most. Well located and I found a yummy yummy Gluten Free Fish and Chip shop around the...

As this trip was planned at the very last minute, we were happy we could get accommodation here. Especially with Saturday 17th being the All blacks rugby game and most of the accommodation throughout the city was booked out already. It is located within the Christchurch central area and it's very close to town. There's a restaurant and bar within...

Stayed here for work and with family. The smaller room is perfect for a business visit; warm, comfortable bed and very clean. There is space to park and a couple of chargeback restaurants. The family villa also was excellent and had plenty of space. It was, for the longer stay, perfect for a family to cook in, hang out and...
