We stayed 2 nights in April, and the motel was spotless comfortable and wi fi worked well. The host directed us to many attractions, and she was very knowledgeable about the area. My only regret was that we couldn't have stayed longer

We spent one night at the Bella Vista Motel in Hokitika and found it quite pleasant. It's located right on Highway 6 but nevertheless is just a very short walk from downtown and also the beach.

We were mainly in Hokitika for the Hokitika Gorge and spent a lovely night at this place. The lady at the reception was wonderful, drawing directions on a map for us and recommending the best time to visit the Gorge regarding the weather (tip: don't go when it rains, as she advised us - boy, was she right!).

These are lovely rooms that are close to town and good value. I would stay here again. Only a 5 minute stroll to the information centre, so you can easily plan your days in the region.

Good price for a clean and comfortable room. Very minimal traffic noise (its on the main road) So very handy to town... a few minutes walk and you are there. 5 minutes walk to the coast where we saw a lovely West Coast sunset.

Wasn't a fan of Hokitika but this hotel was really good for the price. Roomy and comfortable, little area to make food etc and good sized bathroom, good place to relax after a walk along the beach and through the town.

I would have loved to have given this motel an "excellent" rating. The welcome when we arrived was great, and the room was immaculately clean. It was nice too to see the effort made to avoid wasting electricity - the first place I have been where the TV was switched off at the wall. However, the location is such that,... More
