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.

A good place for a weary traveler to rest, the rooms are clean, comfy, good shower pressure, good, safe and free off street parking. Friendly and obliging hosts, meets the need for the traveler and in a good location on the main street on the north end of the town.

Absolutely amazing! We called super late and not expecting to be able to get a room. He let us take a room downstairs and to sort everything in the morning. Plenty of on-site parking with plenty on the road if need be. The room was super clean, bed comfortable, quiet area even though in the main drag. Good shower pressure and hot hot water after a long day.

It was a pleasant stay. Easy to find and near town. We arrived late, we phoned ahead and let them know and they were not fazed. Organised things for us. Restful sleep, nice ambience. Had breakfast nearby, then on our way. Easy access to get onward to Christchurch.

When you stay several times at Bella Vista Motels you know what to expect. Our room on second floor was rather small for two. Luckily we don't needed to take our luggage out of car - there is not space for them. Friendly manager. Clean room, comfortable beds (double and single) and functional bathroom (but shower very slippery). The biggest issue is very heavy traffic day and night (SH 1). We needed ear plugs...and it was not for us possible to sleep windows open (there was very hot day in Asburton). There is a local restaurant and Robert Harris café within walking distance. Bella Vista is not in the city center.

Christchurch, New Zealand948 contributions357 helpful votes
Greeted warmly by the manager who dealt with the formality of checking in and receiving payment. The room was located on a second-floor level furthest from the Main Road on which the Motel is located. The size of the room was adequate, with a large comfortable king-size bed taking up most of the available space. There was also a singular chair available which meant (being a couple) one of us had to sit on the bed to watch a wall (but non-adjustable) wall-mounted television. The room had plenty of lighting, which was essential given the lack of daylight able to penetrate. Heating was also provided, and essential. A large amount of complimentary tea/coffee was provided along with a jug (which needed to be filled through the spout as the top appeared to be unopenable). The bathroom was of an adequate size. Heating here, however, was entirely ineffective. Complimentary toiletries consisted of a handwash pump which was almost non-functioning and shower gel which was so diluted or ineffective that obtaining a lather was next to impossible. Resorted to using one’s own to achieve a sense of cleanliness. The shower pressure itself was, however, particularly good despite the difficulty of adjusting the nozzle. Despite the room’s location, there was still a considerable amount of road noise being able to be heard from the main Road. Its location is a little distant from the main township although there is a restaurant within 10 minutes' walk that provides a discount to those staying at the Motel. Okay for a night’s stay.

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
