A compact, spotless and friendly motel which is a short stroll to the town centre. Good value for money. And it has reasonably priced laundry facilities and free wifi. So nice to stay somewhere where the owners care about their guests.

Small and compact rooms but they have everything you could need. Everything was in excellent condition, comfortable and exceptionally clean. Great location within walking distance to the town centre. Love the offer of milk upon check-in. Staff is warm and welcoming and very friendly. Love the free WIFI.

Its your typical motel chain Nothing to fault. Lovely local people who knows their town. They recommend a yummy pizza place to us. Checked if we wanted milk before handing out. I prefer this way as they make sure they only issue to visitors who need it. The room we opt for is much smaller than expected ie ww can't... More

On arrival, we were made very welcome by the owner. We were provided with milk for the room, which was very comfortable and equipped with basic cooking facilities. Free WiFi was available in the room. We were given a town map and given several recommendations as to where we might consider eating. The motel was only a very short walk... More

My husband and i visited bella vista at hokitika and the rooms were small yet comfortable. It was super clean. We had just driven from christchurch to hokitika and were super exhausted so this room was good enough for a night. We did sleep well and the hot shower made our day.

We thank you for all your positive comments in your review but are perplexed and disappointed to see you only gave us a rating of two. Your comments were your room was "super clean", you said "you slept well" and "had a hot shower". None of your comments were negative and that is why we don't understand the score you... More

We stayed one night prior to going on the transalpine train ride from Greymouth. We found this motel very clean and well equipped. Close walking distance to town and not far from the glow worm cave. We would use this motel again if we returned to New Zealand.

We got a room on the second floor as we requested when we booked.Since we booked a basic room it was quite small but nice. Refrigerator and free wifi in the room. It was not far to walk to the city center. We recommend this motel.
