Just what I needed

Michael was a welcoming and friendly host, who gave me plenty of local information. My room was very clean. Had everything I needed. Great location, both to lake and to Te anau village. Book direct with them for a better rate.

This was our base for Milford Sound and hence we had to stay for two nights. The whole experience was worse than disappointing. Very small room with an even smaller bathroom. No aircons but a small heating fan was provided. We were given raw material for minimal breakfast next morning. This was an experience, we would certainly not like to repeat. The hotel was booked through our travel agency, namely, The Long White Clouds, which had assured us a four star hotel.

The guest asked for an upgrade, we were fully booked and not able to do so, we are a small motel that has been independently assessed by Qualmark as 4-star quality accommodation.

We arrived early and the owner made a special effort to get our room ready for us. Sure enough after a short lunch was ready.
We were received with great friendliness and helpfulness by the lovely lady on reception who went out of her way to make sure that everything was good for us - even booking a Milford sound cruise for us. She is a real asset to hotel.
The room was just what we wanted and was very clean and comfortable.
Short walk into town across a nice park

Stayed here for 2 nights. Te Anau is a nice quiet place (after hectic Queenstown). The lake provides nice peaceful area to walk/ stroll or tramp. Necessary location for coach trips to Milford Sound (road currently closed to private vehicles). Hotel booked coach/cruise trip. Advisable to book well in advance. Rooms are clean with coffee/tea, microwave and hob to cook with. Fresh milk provided. Laundry available etc. No view of lake but overlooks the park.

Stayed 2 nights in this motel. Small size outdated room with updated bathroom. Firm bed with no AC but have a small fan. Bathroom looks like it's been updated.

Not happy that the motel posted full payment 10 days prior to our arrival even though we are aware we will be charged 100% for cancelation or no shows but should only be charged on the day of arrival. Booked through Hotels.com and saw below statement on the confirmation:

"Don’t worry, we haven’t taken any payment as you’ll pay the property directly in its local currency, along with any additional charges and fees incurred during your stay. These charges may be subject to a foreign exchange fee."

Called Hotels.com before we left and representative said the motel should have waited till the day of arrival. Representative contacted motel directly and was told their computer was down. When we arrived, the lady at the front desk told us to check with Hotels.com as they are the one posted the charges. However, my credit card statement only shows the motel's name and not Hotels.com. f the motel wants to charge full payment on the cancellation effective date, it should be stated clearly on the confirmation as double payment may happen.

Date of stay: January 2020

Bella Vista Te Anau, General Manager at Bella Vista Motel Te Anau, responded to this reviewResponded 30 October 2022

The guests' booking has been amended a couple of times via Hotels.com and Expedia. The original booking is the guest to pay to hotels.com, but the credit card has been declined, the guest update their credit card and the last confirmed booking with a Deposit Policy: The guest will be charged a prepayment of the total price of the reservation in the 14 days before arrival. Therefore, we charge the guest's credit card, not Hotels.com.

There is no pay-on-arrival option if guests booked from all the online travel agencies channels since 2018 in Bella Vista Te Ana, guests can find pay on arrival option on our website as a direct booking with Best Price Guarantee.

Good room, plenty of space (if anything maybe too much furniture). You can easily walk into the main street and have dinner etc. The host was very friendly and took time to explain many things when we checked in.

Our son had an unexpected nosebleed in bed during the night and we needed to leave early for Milford Sound. Once we had a mobile connection we emailed our apologies and offered to pay the cleaning bill but the owner was very understanding and didnt charge us anything!

Would be happy to stay here again or recommend to others!
