    It was clean and within walking distance of restaurants.

    We chose the unit as it promised a "private jacuzzi" - turned out to be no more that a single spa bath in the bathroom, with the shower over - we consider this this false representation. When we arrived the place was freezing as three windows were open - it was 5 degrees outside. The old wall heater didn't work on the second heat setting, although we did find another fan heater in a cupboard after a while which helped. Iron but no ironing board, broken venetian blinds on the door, stained curtains in the bedroom, and low wattage bulbs in ceiling lights making them extremely dim. We confirmed we didn't want the towels changed when asked the next morning, but unfortunately this was interpreted as we didn't want the room serviced at all, which it wasn't until we asked. Extremely disappointed, particularly for $300 for 2 nights.

    The friendly staff, cleanliness of the rooms, and the short walking distance to everything was good.

    Unpleasant smell in room when we first entred. Cleared once heater had been running for a bit.

    We had a lovely upstairs motel room with fantastic views across to the glacier. Staff very helpful and cable internet for a modest sum per day. Very good facilities, clean and comfortable. Extremely close to everything you will need in Franz Josef.

    We were very comfortable at the Bella Vista. It was an excellent location for visiting the Fox and FranzJosef Glaciers. The manager made good recommendations for places to eat. We would recommend this motel.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The view from our room was wonderful.

    The owner was not as friendly and helpful as others we have experienced. There was no wifi.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Nothing in particular - the weather was crap, we couldn't do the activities we'd planned, so we only stayed one night instead of two.

    Room was small and cramped compared to other accommodation we had experienced in NZ.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The hotel room was equipped with cooking utensils, so you could do your own cooking there. In addition, the room was very clean and comfortable.

  • Couple
    9.2

    It was perfect for the price. Convenient location, the rooms were a good size and clean.
