Bella Vista Motel Fox Glacier

Reviewed 10 April 2012

DONT EVER STAY HERE! Unless u wish to be called insulting names by the owners when making a complaint about the room. I had stayed in numerous Bella Vistas whilst travelling around the South Island. I was swore at by the owners for complaining about the noise from the road and from other guests. We had phoned the owners in the night and we were told there was nothing they could do. WORST HOSPITALITY EXPERIENCE! DONT STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Over priced also! Poor attitude of staff!

Nice room and facilities, seems like an excessive amount of house rules as to what u can and can't do. Also walls must be made of paper, could hear people using the shower etc a particular annoyance when trying to sleep early.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs to sleep

Nice welcome, and helpful guide provided for onward drive. Free wifi (100mb) a nice touch. Room spotlessly clean, although the instructions on the bed about sleeping between sheets and not the cover were a little off putting! Only thing to let it down is the noise - I could hear TV clearly through the wall until post 11pm and was woken by the sound of someone relieving themselves (nice!) at 6am - I'd thought the comments on noise here were excessive before staying here, but the poor sound proofing between rooms lets it down. Top tip : bring ear plugs if a light sleeper and all will be well as otherwise it was good!

We thought the room was a nice size and facilities about right for the price. the kitchenette had everything needed. Very central . Would give it 5 but thought it a bit expensive and so not best value for money

The cheapest rooms aren't all that cheap and they are very small, but it was sufficient. The room was clean. There are a lot of "rules" posted in the room, and it felt a lot like we were being lectured to every time we turned around.

Well appointed and perfectly clean. Good value but noisy in the mornings as people leave for their walks. Great location for a morning walk on the glacier but I'd only stay here for that purpose.

Room Tip: They all seemed much of a muchness.

We stayed one night at this hotel. It was clean and comfortable. It's fairly modern with everything you needed including a little kitchenette and very clean bathroom. It was a bit pricey but it is right in the middle of the village and the glacier is popular. Staff were friendly and helpful. A bit noisey in the morning with everyone moving around but would stay there again.
