We had a good wee stay here. The room was big enough and very clean & tidy. Staff were so lovely and helpful and showed us some great places to visit on the map. Very friendly! The location was good and we could easily have walked down to a restaurant in town if it wasn't pouring down. We would stay... More

We had a great time. The rooms were tidy, warm and cosy! The owners were lovely! They even lent us gear to go gold panning with! Hokitika is also an amazing place with a great goldmining history. Visit the glow worm dell which is walking distance from the motel. And make sure you watch the sunset from sunset point. Would... More

After staying at another Bella Vista motel, we had high expectations that were definitely met. Staff were great, short walk from city centre, room very clean and well stocked, bathroom good and shower pressure excellent. Would stay again.

Lovely welcome from the managers of the motel - felt immediately at home. Remembered us from previous visit. Try visiting the Wilderness Gallery for beautiful photographic prints. Good meals and coffee, homemade ice cream ... glass and... More

Great location 5 mins walk from town centre. Great room very clean, loved the spa bath. We where only in Hokitika for two days one night thanks to the lovely friendly couple who run the motel we had a wonderful time. They ran us to and from the airport. Great value. Highly recommended. AAA+++++

The room was modern and clean and the heater worked well. It had everything I needed for an overnight stay and the service was great. I would be happy to stay in this motel again. The wifi was free and a good speed.

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.
