I've just completed a "Tiki tour" of the South Island and would have to say this is the cleanest and best appointed motel I stayed in. PLUS great value. Very nice people running it too. I highly recommend this motel. Thank you

This would be one of the cleanest and most well set up motels I have been in. They’re so friendly also. The attention to small details make the difference. It’s on the main road but we did not have traffic noise. It’s easy to walk to coffee/ restaurants.

Situated on the main road and even though it is within the town boundary there is road noise at night, particularly from the heavy trucks. Not a show stopper but something to be aware of. Motel was clean and tidy but a studio is really a bit small for two people.

We recently stayed here for a friends wedding being held locally, the Bella Vista was perfect for us, very clean, well maintained, perfectly priced and very accommodating to us, and to our large group's needs. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and the wifi was fast. The Ashburton Bella Vista is in short walking distance of a couple of great cafes for breakfast also. When we return to beautiful Ashburton one day, we'll be making our reservation here. Thank you Darren & Gail

We stayed here for one night in December 2019. Great room and very well equipped. However the motel is located close to a very busy main road and railway, so is a very noisy location in the summer when the windows are open.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, We are please to hear that you found your room very attractive and clean. Some days the traffic is heavy, but people do appreciate the double glazing for quietness. Please do come and stay again and use the fan to cool the room and close the windows .

... I stayed in a different Motels before, but the fridge was ice old and could not change the settings, so moved to Bella Vista. First impression, quite small compare to Asure Adcroft Motel, as it is more expansive. Also just 10 channels, so, if the weather is not good or after a long day, it much to choose from. More advanced Motel have even Netflix. Anyway, it was clean and the bed was comfy. A bit noisy, when there is a lot of traffic. Restaurants are a bit away, , can recommend tons Thai, on the main road. Was before charming Thai. If you have to stay in Ashburton, it's OK.

It’s always a good sign in a motel when you open the door and find to room to be nice and warm on a very cold day in Ashburton. This is a great sign that the owners appreciate your business, The rooms are all well appointed very clean. If stay in a lot of motels and this one is one of the best. Friendly service and good value for money and handy to the town. It’s on the main road so can be noisy with the trucks. I would highly recommend if staying in Ashburton to try the Bella Vista.

We pre-booked this accommodation while travelling north from Queenstown. Nicely located on the main highway through town on the northern outskirts. A nicely appointed room with all the features that we required. Kitchenette with microwave, sink etc etc all seemingly new. Fittings and furnishings were as new and presented nicely. For us we also really appreciated the settee which many motels in New Zealand seem not to include in their rooms. The bathroom was first class, contemporary in design and included a single bath spa. Heating was good. The queen sized bed would have to have had the thickest mattress that we had ever seen and it goes without saying, superbly comfortable! The TV although flat screen was very small. The general trend is to increase the size of these in most motels to at least 26” if not 32” or more! However, this was certainly not a negative, just a comment. Breakfast was also available however we had our own breakfast ingredients with us. Plenty of parking. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this motel.
