5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Recently stayed one night at Bella Vista, Hokitika. Great choice and unreservedly recomended.
Well priced, quiet, clean, sizeable enough to be comfortable and faultless, friendly service. We stayed using two studio units, which were great. All Bella Vista chain motels have been good and this carries the name well.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We were here for one night whilst travelling up the coast. Of the three Bella Vistas in which we stayed this was the cheapest, so very good value. As with the previous reviewers, Glenys looked after us very well giving us an upgrade and good advice on where to eat in town. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious and we too heard no road noise to disturb us. As I've said elsewhere, with chain motels what makes the difference is the service and here it was tops.

We spent one night at this motel en route to Franz Josef and Queenstown. While it was on the highway we didn't notice any noise to interrupt our sleep and the room was clean, comfortable and a good size. Our host was helpful with restaurant suggestions and we would have liked to stay a bit longer but we had already booked ahead.

We stayed one night and Glenys gave us an upgrade to a 2 room apartment. Glenys was wonderful and gave us a lot of assistance with directions and food suggestions. Our room was very clean and roomy and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this motel for one night. It was very clean, the bed and linens were excellent, and it contained all the amenities you might require for a short stay or a longer stay. The owner/hostess,
Glenys was extremely friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here should we find ourselves in Hokitika again.

My husband and I had booked in here. We were suddenly accompanied by our daughter. Upon arriving at the motel we were greeted by Glenys. She is a very friendly host and extremely accommodating. She provided our daughter with a camping mat, blankets and sheets for her to sleep on. Our daughter was fine with sleeping on the floor. She was very comfortable. Glenys made us feel extremely welcome. Definately recommend!

There's not much to fault in this motel. The staff were really lovely, the rooms were clean and modern (plus plunger coffee!!) and everything was perfect. The motel is very central and it was only a five minute walk to the supermarket which would be considered "across town" so everything else is even closer. I'd definitely recommend this place over other more expensive ones.

We stayed at the Beachfront Hotel last time we were in Hokitika and while it was also nice and modern, the service and restaurant let it down really badly. I'd much rather stay at theis place. Also, free internet!!
