Bella Vista Motel & Apartments
Ranked #59 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Were made feel really welcome by new managers, very friendly and helpful. They shared their plans for the hotel, organised a free pick up for our train journey and gave advise on what to do around town. We were able to walk to city centre, cosy rooms, clean and had just what we needed.

Would stay again.

Although it's on a busy street, it's quiet inside. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was large. The room was on the dark side, as it had a veranda shading the window, but that's not a problem, as it helps you sleep! There were some nice little touches, like biscuits and mints in the kitchen, and tissues in the bathroom. You can walk to the city centre, but it would be easier if you had a car. The owners are new, and very friendly. The only down side would be that the water pressure in the shower wasn't great but overall a comfortable stay.

Had a 3 night stay at the Bella Vista. The Managers were very accommodating to our requests while there and gave us plenty of assistance to find the things we needed. The room was lovely and clean, was warm, well equipped with kitchen necessities and the bed was very comfortable. Not far from town if you have a vehicle and on bus routes. Although some distance from the airport it was very easy to get both in and out finding it without trouble.

Room Tip: If I stayed here again I would definitely request a ground floor room as the stairs were a nuisance...

My fiance' and I stayed at Bella Vista Motel for 2 nights late June. We found it quite comfortable and neat. The owners were both very helpful, welcoming and approachable which made our stay even better. The rooms, although small were well equipped, clean and met all our needs. If we were to be picky we would suggest a fan in the bathroom would be a good addition to prevent over steaming the room. Overall we definitely recommend staying at Bella Vista. Also Very close proximity to the city.

As Christchurch is so broken we were lucky to be recommended to Bella Vista Christchurch, as so many places are gone.. The owers were friendly helpful and made us feel very welcome. It was a easy walk to the city and Speights Bar. The two bedroom apartment was clean had everything we needed and warm, perfect for our start of our South Island trip.

My wife and I stayed here on our last night in New Zealand. We had an early flight the next day and so didn't get too much time to spend here.

Although we were not supposed to check in until 2pm, we had to drop the car off in Christchurch Town at around midday. We arrived at the motel at around 11am and they let us store our suitcases there until check in time. We then took the car back to the depot (which was the other side of town). At this point I must give a thumbs up to Apex Car Rentals. Once we had dropped the car off the man there gave us a lift into the city centre, at no extra charge, and gave us a running commentary along the way and, later that afternoon, we got a bus from the city centre to the motel (less than 10 minutes away).

The room was compact but well equipped with all the usual facilities. It was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. Although this motel was on the edge of the city centre it was around a five minute walk to a great pub, which served some nice food. Also, there was a convenience store just across the road.

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend the establishment to friends.
