“Great food with a view to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

I've visited the Bella Vista quite a few times for meals now and can safely say that the food at this hotel is delicious! Recently tasted a mutton dish called 'Taar Meat' on the chef's recommendation and I know that I'm definitely going back for that one!
We usually tend to sit on the deck outside Serenade (the coffee shop) from where you can enjoy the best view of the mountains any place in the Chandigarh Tri-city area can offer. This is the same view that resident guests get to enjoy from the private pools outside their rooms.
I'd recommend The Bella Vista to anyone visiting the city. And locals should definitely go check their restaurants out. Oh and before I forget, definitely try their home-made gelatos!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains. And if possible, upgrade to one of the rooms with a pri...

12 of us friends on a golfing holiday stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were extremely comfortable and very spacious. The views were breathtaking and we even had private pools connected to our rooms. To top it off the service at the hotel was excellent, the staff was extremely courteous and took care of all of our groups needs. Overall our experience was great. And after a long day of golf and joking around with friends it was good to come back and relax here.
Piece of advice to all: try there in-house ice cream its one of the best I have tasted in the country (and I travel a lot!)

The Bella Vista, Panchkula is a fine place to stay while visiting Chandigarh tricity. Being centrally located right in the heart of Panchkula, provides easy access to Chandigarh and Mohali as well. The rooms are most comfortable and spacious, along with competitive tariff and a friendly, hospitable staff made the stay worthwhile. The patio is a perfect place to relax in evenings after a hard days work with a magnificent view of the mountains in the distance. The hotel boasts of an excellent menu, which made the stay worthwhile. Overall, the Bella Vista experience can't be missed.

Had recently reviewed the restaurant.
Took a round of the entire property.
Damn Nice.
Private pools, nice food, what more could you ask for here in Panchkula!
Just like the food, the room prices are reasonable too.
Good ambience, overall a very pleasant experience.

Undoubtedly, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. But that does not become the only deciding factor. So here it goes :

The Good :
1-The Rooms ( I was in the Cabana )
2-The Private Pool/The Jacuzzi

The Bad :
1-Most of the front desk staff is so inhospitable and unfriendly. They really will not even bother with a smile or offer you a seat.
2-As i entered my room i saw 3 dead grasshoppers and i was told the room is cleaned :-(
3-The jacuzzi does not drain out properly and the wets the washroom completely
4-The pool was filthy and took 2 hours to clean. ( but yes the person did clean it diligently )
5-I wanted to swim in the evening but the pool lights were not working, i asked for them to be fixed but was told they cannot be fixed, so i ended up not swimming in the evening.
6-A front desk person scared my child by telling her there are snakes in the pool. Strange Enough ! Very upsetting !She was so looking forward to a swim and ended up in miserable and scared.

The place is made well but not managed well. The charges are of a luxury star hotel but the hospitality quotient is low. I did finally speak with the manager and he did hear me well.

It is a place to go back to, provided the staff is more professional, well spoken and gentle.

The Bella Vista hotel is located in a scenic spot in Panchkula. The hotel staff is most attentive and the rooms are well appointed. For the business traveller, it provides a very comfortable and affordable place to stay. There is valet parking for those who choose to drive themselves, The restaurant provides an eclectic mix of food and it seems that a lot of thought has gone into pulling the menu together. The food was excellent and the staff were on hand to make recommendations., it is an extremely comfortable hotel and I would recommend it to friends and family.

I stayed at Bella Vista in Aug '13 while travelling with my family. My stay here was excellent due to the warm hospitality given by the entire staff of the hotel. My every need was taken care from the time I checked in. The staff was always there to meet any requirements I have. They even made sure that we get interconnected rooms as I was travelling with my family. This was done without me even requesting it. The staff here is courteous, the rooms are spacious and well-kept and the food here is excellent. This hotel came highly recommended and I am happy followed the recommendation. I would recommend this place to stay if one is travelling to Chandigarh/Panchkula.
