Stayed here with son, daughter-in-law and two teenage grandchildren who desperately needed wifi. Julie very kindly allocated the vacant room’s quota to us to accommodate the teenagers. I have stayed here on numerous occasions since 2011 and have always enjoyed a warm, friendly service from both Steve & Julie. For this reason it is my honour to recommend their facility to anyone looking for clean, warm and welcoming accommodation.
The motel is on the outskirts of Hanmer Springs township (and thus deafeningly quiet except for birdcalls), and pretty much within a short drive or biking distance, your choice, probably not within walking distance to town centre. The motel is clean, particular mention must be made of the motel owners who are really nice people, it’s a pleasure to stay there. The rooms face the scenic mountains and the valley. I will remember the room for its disproportionately large (size for the room) and well-equipped bathroom, which is not what you expect to see in motels, :-), with a fancy shower-dome with forceful jet of water (ranging between piping hot to icy cold 24 hours) and expensive soap and shampoo on the shower stands. Downside: the room we selected was small and did not have a table and set of chairs, and did not have a veranda where you can relax, etc. It’d be nice if it had a few car charging pods or facility to charge electric vehicles (that’s pretty much it, they didn’t bother us, not deal breaker for us anyway). Overall: top of average range. Good value for money. Recommended. …
We would like to thank Steve & Julie from Bella Vista Hanmer Springs for looking after us when we stayed at the Bella Vista. They are wonderful hosts and the accommodation is like 5 star accommodation. We will definitely be back. Thank you 😀
Great hosts - tidy and clean rooms showing their age a bit but with all you need and good breakfast available - a little noise from other rooms but otherwise a good base for our stay in Hanmer Springs.
Stayed for one night. Great welcome. Unit was ultra clean and in great condition maintenance wise. A very short walk to every thing Had dinner at the Saints pub. Quick service and good quality food to. The only negative would be that they do not have Sky TV so the reception is fairly poor. They need to invest in that as that is what people expect these days.
We based our selves here for 2 nights the motel was clean and v good Enjoyed our time here and thought it good value Enjoyed seeing the native pigeon Handy base just on edge of town Towels supplied for hot pools
We absolutely loved our stay at the Bella Vista, the owners were so accommodating and friendly. The rooms were basic, clean and a good distance away from the busy-ness of town. Would definitely stay again!
I have to start this by saying I feel terrible giving a poor review because the people who own the place are so wonderful, but the rooms were pretty rough, especially for >$170/night. We appreciated that they allow dogs, which is the reason we stayed there. But the room was small and the mattress was very uncomfortable. The views of the mountains are great though, and access to the dog stream was great, too.
We booked the Bella Vista via a 'last minute' website for a night away over the long weekend. We had a studio unit with a king bed which was great as it meant we weren't squished when our small person wanted to join us. The motel provided a porta cot for our son which was all set up when we arrived. The motel is also pet friendly, this is awesome! We took our small dog which meant we didn't have to worry about kennels or the additional cost that brings. Plenty of parking, very friendly staff. Our room was available before the standard check-in time which was great as our small person was getting tired and needed a rest. We will definitely be back.
The studio unit we stayed in was very good had the basics for a couple or could have a disable person stay as the shower unit & toilet was all in one.Bed was a bit firm but otherwise it suit our needs over the four days we stayed .It was a five minute walk to the centre of town.
