This way surpassed our expectations. The manager couldn't have been more considerate. He spent time recommending local Nelson restaurants and suggesting daily activities which truly matched our needs. The Abel Tasman boat tour was truly spectacular. Nelson area is simply beautiful. Thank you Bella Vista!

Nice room, clean and comfortable with friendly service. A good price as has all amenities. No comparison to cheaper places as they don't have the facilities of Bella Vista. Breakfast is available or you can make your own meals in the room.
