We arrived later than expected, about 7.45pm, after a long day travelling for an overnight stay, given a warm welcome and shown to our compact but clean, bright and basic unit. Double bed, 2 chairs, flat screen t.v. and dvd player. Kettle (tea/coffee/sugar etc), toaster, fridge and hairdryer. Heating and air-con. Only downside was no sink and had to wash up in basin in shower room. This was the second Bella Vista motel on our South Island tour that we'd booked before leaving UK, having already stayed in Te Anau we were not surprised to find the units almost identical. Dinner at Alice Mays restaurant which was just next door.
