I had until mid afternoon to get the bus but had to vacate the room by 10am which is rudely early. Yes, I could leave my bag in their office, but there is only so much one can do in the small tourist town for that many hours! The room is small and came with a counter for making coffee, a refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom had decent shower. It’s on the main road and no rooms in the back. Family run taking pretty good care of the place. Walk to town center is complicated and must cross the busy street which has no crosswalk.

Hi thanks for your review. I think you'll find that 10am is the usual check out time in most motel accommodation, this then gives us time to strip room, make bed and clean and deal with any issues that may arise before check in at 2pm. Our rooms are thoroughly cleaned after each stay so does take time to do this. Your more than welcome for the luggage storage whilst you took the 4 minute walk to the town centre, with shops, cafes and of course the beachfront. Pleased you enjoyed the shower, we get a lot of positive comment's about them.

I have stayed at Bella Vista Hokitika many times over the last 6 or 7 years and I’m alway happy when I find my work takes me there once more.
It’s just good old fashioned service I enjoy, the rooms are always spotless , bed linen fresh and clean, the hosts are always welcoming and the little touches like pre warming the rooms for your arrival on wet and cold afternoon just make you feel at home .
My company now know that’s the only place I will stay at when I’m in Hokitika .

This is one of those experiences that makes for great memories. The hotel was clean and comfortable, in a convenient location. But what made it memorable was the owner. I was traveling by motorcycle and mentioned my bottom was sore from all the riding, so when I checked out, the owner gave me a bath towel to use as a seat cushion! I used that towel for the rest of my trip.

Spent a lovely night here. Dale was very friendly, gave great recommendations and made us feel welcome after a long day of work on the Coast. Great rooms, comfy bed and spotlessly clean. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the stay here and would definitely recommend this motel.

This is a clean and comfortable motel within walking distance of everything in Hokitika including the local pool which was excellent. Our 2 bedroom room had a separate bedroom but that meant there was a large bed in the living room area which we could have done without. There is a separate laundry area but you do have to pay to use it.

We stayed her overnight and found the manger very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean. They did however lack the little extras, like tissues and shower cap. Not many places open for dinner when we arrived.

We had a two room suite. One room had a queen bed and the other had two twin beds. It was spacious and clean with good amenities. The beds were comfortable. It’s a bit outdated but well located. Friendly welcome at the reception. We had a good stay.

On arrival we received a warm welcome. Clean room and comfortable beds. East walk into town centre and to the beach. The motel is by the main road there was no traffic noise. Lots of pressure in the shower. What else can I say to get to the mandated 200 characters? It’s a good place to stay.

Have stayed in Bella vista's in other towns. Hokitika's was disappointing. Admittedly stayed at a busy time but we had a tiny cramped room - not much bigger than a caravan. No sink so dishes had to be washed in the hand basin in the bathroom. Suitcases had to be on the floor so very little room to.move around. Only one armchair to watch tv

Plenty of off road parking. Lock up storage in the shed for bikes. Upstairs unit very clean, neat and tidy. even though adjacent to main road very quiet. Quick walk into town. Easy check in and check out.
