Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a compact studio room, and it certainly was compact, not really any room to store luggage. It was great to have a microwave and toaster provided. Also plates, glasses and cutlery also provided. There was a guest laundry on site at $3 per wash, and a clothes dryer, but a clothes line also available. Hosts were friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area. A supermarket and the Main Street only a short walk away.

We were greeted very warmly by Julie, she was very friendly and provided us with lots of information.

The rooms themselves are small, but very clean and what looks like nearly new carpet. Amenities provided are good, the shower pressure is amazing and the towels are wonderful.

The bed was a little hard and the room was quite noisy. We were awoken by a car alarm in the early hours and a motorbike at dawn. Could also hear people talking downstairs and next door. The entry to the room was a glass sliding door, which felt a little disconcerting to be so open to people outside, but this was more perception than reality as there was a curtain attached to the door.

The location is excellent as it was easy walking distance to the centre of Blenheim.

If you’ve a lot of luggage you’ll struggle- rooms aren’t that big. The facilities are ok - laundry, car park, en-suite bathroom etc etc but we were tripping over ourselves.
TCMF were provided and good shower.

Thank you for taking time to post a review, WE d have a variety of rooms with the compact queen being our entry level. Our business people love them because they are in and out without much luggage, but they are not for the tourist traveller. We only have four of these all our other rooms are far more accommodating of your luggage needs. I hope the new bed and the excellent shower made up for it.

Centrally located motel with the standard Bella Vista design, so no surprises. Heat pump on cool at the outside temperature was in the 30's. Excellent shower pressure. Car parking needs to be done with care. Friendly hosts, including the dog.

We stayed here for 2 nights in December 2019. Great location with only a short walk to the centre of the town. Well equipped unit, clean and functional. Great location for touring Picton and Nelson. Friendly, helpful staff.

The room was freshly decorated and the furnishings modern and appeared recently renovated. The service was friendly and helpful. The room was slightly on the small side, but not significantly so. Location is very close to the centre of Blenheim and an easy walk to restaurants and cafes, so a good place to base yourself.

We stayed two nights at the Bella Vista. It was a great location within walking distance to the town center and many restaurants. Nice clean room with a kitchenette. Very friendly gentleman at the front desk. We were on foot with backpacks and he gave us a ride to the bus station on a cold rainy day, true hospitality, we were so grateful. The hotel also has laundry facilities.
