Fantastic hotel with lovely staff”

Location, spa in room and the friendliest staff you could ask for

From the time I arrived at the Bella Vista I was warmly greeted and welcomed by the lovely lady at the reception desk who offered me fresh milk for hot drinks along with hot chocolate packets which weren't in the room. Pretty much every request was attended to swiftly but also any questions no matter how silly were answered honestly and throughly. She was always happy for a quick friendly chat as well. My room faced onto the road on the ground floor so there was slight noise coming from the road but the town is so small that the noise is minimum, unless you are there when the towns fire alarm goes off. This is very loud and occurs when there is a fire, car crash or something similar and I'll ring until they have enough people to help the situation. The loudest noise you'll probably get is when the large coaches arrive into the town. Being at the end of the town there isn't much noise around from other hotels or the bars as they are at the other end of the street. Location of the hotel is convienent being at the end of the main street in Fox Glacier township so everything is just a quick walk up the hill; being the convenience store, restaurants and the checkin location for the Glacier tours. Just next door to the hotel is a little walking track leading through the rainforest that leads to the base of the Glacier itself. Lake Matheson is a good walk from the town but there are people who will drive you there return for $10 and is well worth the walk around the lake. My favorite feature of my room was the heating available; being the great wall heater along with the electric blanket on the bed but the best thing was the in bath spa. Greatly needed this after a tour on the glacier as it was relaxing and heated. The TV has the normal channels in NZ with some cable movie channels included. I was nothing but impressed with the Bella Vista in Fox Glacier from the moment I arrived until I unforturnely had to leave. I would recommend this hotel to other travel

Very nice apartments in the center of town”

The motel is centrally located and very close to the tour bus pickup point. I had a wonderful one-night stay and will come back. The room was well-furnished with a comfortable bed and kitchen facilities. The bathroom was clean and white, and was even equipped with a spa bath-tub. What a treat! The complimentary wifi connection was good. The lady at the reception desk (Sue) was extremely friendly and provided helpful tourist information. The only downside was the yellowish water from the taps. It was not the fault of Bella Vista. It was the water in the Fox Glacier area. I bought my own drinking water from the grocery, which was just 50 meters away. I had dinner at "The Asian Wok" next door. It used to be called "The Indian Kitchen". I tried the Thai food, which was delicious as it was cooked by a real Thai chef. An Indian couple dining there told me the Indian food was excellent.

Friendly staff and perfect location”

It was an unforgettable experience for me in Fox Glacier. The Motel is located in the main street, where you can access bistros, grocery stores, and travel centres in minutes. The room is spacious and bright, in addition, the staff (or the owner) of the motel is extremely approachable and honest, she almost forgot to take the bond for check-in. Also, the grounds is strictly supervised by the staff; I overheard the guests were warned by the staff to maintain their voice level and clear the rubbish in the carpark at night. I'd like to spend another holiday with Bella Vista Fox Glacier Motel again.

Friendly staff and clean rooms”

After a long drive from Wanaka, all we need is a friendly face and clean room to rest, and Bella Vista Fox Glacier Motel has it all. Despite is the quieter sister to Frank Josef, you get to enjoy the serene and beautiful sunset sky. The bar nearby is recommended too.
