Booked 4 rooms for a group of 7. Rooms clean, comfortable and good value. Shower had excellent pressure. The host was extremely helpful and ended up transporting us around the town to various places as well as supplying us with a 10% discount card for Monteiths. Would thoroughly recommend the Bella Vista!

We just turned up at the Bella Vista and were offered a better rate than advertised. We got one of the last rooms and gentlemen owner was very friendly and helpful. He recommended the Monteiths Brewery tour and gave us a swipe card that gave us a discount on the tour and on drinks. This tour susequently gave us a... More

Good location and value. Personable and friendly service. Room was clean and well kept. You need to drive into town but some eating places are walkable. Clothes line and pegs out the back makes washing and drying easy.

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

Thank you for your review and i hope you enjoyed your stay and the rest of the trip. Yes the town doesnt look great at the moment with a lot of empty shops. Earthquake being the main reasons. So a lot of places have either moved into containers or moved out while work is being done. The outlook ahead however... 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
