“Excellent stay in Greymouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We were in Greymouth for business purposes and enjoyed a wonderful stay at Bella Vista for 3 nights (May 2012). The accommodation was everything we could've asked for - clean, warm, spacious (Family Unit for 2 adults, 2 young children) with a great bathroom (including spa bath) and excellent kitchen facilities. DVDs and a trampoline helped keep the kids entertained! The motel is located very centrally, within walking distance to the town centre, shops, restaurants, parks/playground. Thanks to the hosts Bryan and Maria!

My husband and I stopped here for one night whilst passing through Greymouth. We stayed in a studio room which was of a good size, clean and very comfortable for the night. The bathroom was everything we needed for our short stay.

The town is a few mins drive away although we didn't go into the town as we arrived fairly late and it looked slightly too far to wander to. There are laundry facilities on site which is always useful. This motel was a good value option for the area as suited our needs for the night.

We booked this motel through a travel agent and paid for our room in August last year. When we arrived we were told they were fully booked and that a room had been found for us at a nearby motel. This motel was not satisfactory, and we ended up having to find accommodation ourselves, at our cost. The location is on a busy road.

Bryan W, Manager at Bella Vista Motel - Greymouth, responded to this review, April 11, 2012
Thank you for taking the time to add a Review on tripadvisor.

This review is different to most reviews because the review is not about my motel, rather a complaint about me personally. I'm the first to put my hand up and say i Made a Mistake with your booking, but like Most Human Beings, Unfortunately we do make Mistakes from time to time. So yes i agree that i did make this Mistake.

When this does happen, i will in all my power try and find a suitable Place of no less or better quality than what you booked with me.

I'm president of the motel Association and President of the Year for New Zealand so I'm not going to jeopardise my high standards by putting you somewhere that's not suitable. I know the place i sent you was of good Quality, Clean and in fact you had a bigger unit than what you had booked with Me.

But at the same time, i do understand that not every Place will suit some guest and that's Fine.

But i would like to ask some questions. If you wasn't happy with it, then why didn't you come back to me and give me the opportunity to find something that did suit. If you wanted to be with your family member that you ended up going to, then you should have said and i would have tried to do that for you. So you didnt have to find your Own accommodation at your cost. I was prepared to work with you.

Another Question i would like to ask is why it took you 5 hours to check out of the motel i put you in.

You used all amenities. Coffee, tea, Milk, water, Towels, Shower, in fact the only thing you didn't use was the bed, so why did it take 5 hours for you to decide that place wasn't suitable.

I am here to look after the guest but the guest has to Play there part as well. Sorry for any incoveince.

Thank you for your time. Bryan Williamson, Bella Vista Motel Greymouth.

We were warmly welcomed at the reception. Our room was upstairs and was spacious, clean, quiet and in fact everything that we would want for an overnight. There were facilities for us to cook up a quick hot meal. The laundry was a great asset for us and although the notice on the door indicated that it closed at 8pm, we checked at the reception and were able to complete our wash and dry cycle after that. There was plenty of parking. We would certainly return or recommend this motel to others.
