Room smelt damp and seemed neglected. Needs a revamp. Not cleaned properly. Operator helpful and suggested a very good place to eat (Buccleugh's). Ample car parking. Would stay in accommodation closer to town centre.

The Bella Vista is fine for a night or two; it is clean, quiet, easy to find and within easy walking distance of the town centre. The room was a little on the small side but for one night that didn't matter. The manager was very friendly and did give us a couple of suggestions of where to eat but... More

Bella Vista Greymouth should be considered as a transit hotel and not a place to stay for a few days. Owner is very friendly and helpful and advised us on a nice hotel to eat at. We stayed in a studio room which does not have much room-difficult to find places for our luggage without tripping over it. Room was... More

Perhaps the worst motel experience ever. After a long drive down New Zealand's beautiful west coast in rainy, windy weather, we were given a grungy, foul smelling room with stained chairs and marked-up walls. Not very welcoming. Worse, a few hours later we returned from dinner, got settled and then a knock on the door. The landlady told us we... More

I expected this review. Yes it was unfortunate but not exactly as the guest has told it. This guest had booked a Compact studio. I guess they were just after something a bit cheaper. We were training a Young lady and had left her for the first time. When these guests arrived, she put them into a Family unit. Our... More

Drove from Christchurch to Greymouth and stayed at this motel during our holidays in NZ in Sep 2013. A clean and nice motel, near to restaurants and fast food joints. Helpful host who gave us tips to some nice places for dinner.

This was a good place to stay, the rooms were clean and tidy - in saying that, there were stains on the tea cups - rings from previous visitors so I cannot say it was excellent. The staff were great - really helpful and accommodating. The milk came in little jugs - a great message for sustainability! I would have... More

Good place to stay! This is a nice clean motel with friendly helpful staff. It was very quiet despite being on a busy road and we got a good nights sleep. I would recommend this motel and would definitely stay here again.

I regularly stay in motels around the country. I found Bella Vista Greymouth, to be great value for the price paid. The unit was so clean and the owners were friendly and helpful. So close to the pool as well which my girls loved. My bed was comfortable and the unit was cosy and well equipped. I will definitely stay... More

All it says on the label. The host was very friendly and the room was spotless and well equipped for a studio. Trouble is it lacked character, found it a bit clinical. Only problem was that the open drain in the shower room floor was a bit odorous. Although not expensive it was not as good value as we had... More
