This has to be one of the top 4 of the 15 Bella Vista motels we stayed at during our recent tour of the South Island. The welcome we received from our hosts was very genuine. The units were not only clean and comfortable but were also bright and airy and they contained everything, and more, than one would expect... More

We weren't expecting to stay in Westport a second night but drove back from visiting waterfalls in the north and went to Bella Vista because we wanted to stay somewhere different from the night before (Spa Motel). Our room was surprisingly large for a Bella Vista. All the usual quality/service we expect from the chain. We walked to dinner from... More

We booked in at very short notice for an overnight during a brief trip from Christchurch. Wonderful welcome and a most clean and comfortable unit with a separate room for our travelling companion. Would recommend !

It was a long day travelling to Westport from Kaikoura, but it was great to get to our motel, the Bella Vista. We were just staying one night, but for my wife and I plus our 3 children it was a great motel and very good value. It is located right near everything in town and the staff were very... More

We booked a Compact Queen Studio room and compact it was!! We first had to put a small bed table into the bathroom and the Office Chair on the spot of the bed table before we had room to store our suitcases in the little room. Then we had to pick the necessary stuff out of our suitcases and stored... More

Hello, thank you for staying with us on your visit to Westport. As you have said the Compact studio is compact, these studios do not suit everyone's needs. While we do not have luggage racks in these studios the wardrobe is large enough to take a suitcase and there are drawers for storage. We do offer some free internet to... More

The place is conveniently located and has plenty of easy parking space. All the facilities I needed were here and the hosts were pleasant. However being on a main intersection the room at night was noisier than I recalled from my last visit. The water pressure in the shower was very good and a big plus. A minor point but... More

We only had a one night stay in Westport and this motel delivered a great package for us, Plenty of room, basic but adequate kitchenette, a good bathroom and a separate bedroom with single bed and a double bunk. The unit was tastefully but simply furnished. A big TV with lots of channel choices (by comparison with many other venues... More

I was recommended this place by one of my customers and was not disappointed. Westport is only a small place so I wasn't expecting a lot but this place was perfect. Very clean, super friendly and in a good spot. They picked me up from the airport, helped me out in any way they could. Just lovely
