Qualmark and Enviro Awards are conferred by New Zealand Tourism and mark all 27 Bella Vista motels as ‘an experience worth experiencing’.

Christchurch, Canterbury, JUL 9, 2014 – New Zealand Tourism’s official quality assurance organisation has awarded both the 4-Star Qualmark Accreditation and Enviro Award to all 27 Bella Vista New Zealand motels. The Qualmark is awarded to motels that deliver exceptional tourism experiences, while the Enviro Award is conferred on motels that practice outstanding environmental and social responsibility. Bella Vista is the first, and currently the only, nationally branded motel group to receive either of these awards.

Bella Vista is a fast growing network of motels with 27 locations across both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. With their multi-destination booking system, Bella Vista allows travellers to build a complete New Zealand Itinerary through their network of motels which are strategically located at important places of interest. Each motel is 100% New Zealand owned and operated, and is set up to offer the best of genuine NZ hospitality.

“We are so honoured to be the first motel network to have every property awarded both the 4-Star Qualmark and Enviro awards,” said Julie Familton, Management Executive at Bella Vista. “We have worked so hard to ensure that each Bella Vista Motel offers a consistently outstanding experience, and these awards are testament to the hard work of all our motel owners and staff members.”

To achieve Qualmark accreditation, motels must be assessed to provide a great tourism experience, operate in an ethical, professional and environmentally sustainable way, adhere to safety and regulatory requirements, and have exceptional levels of customer satisfaction ratings.  The Enviro award is conferred on motels with outstanding levels of resource management and social responsibility.

“These awards will not change a thing here at Bella Vista. We will continue to offer the best of New Zealand hospitality, and we look forward to introducing all our guests to our beautiful country,” added Familton.
