“An Excellent Motel”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This motel is everything one would desire from a motel: clean, convenient and slickly run. On arriving late in the evening after a long 4 hour drive from Christchurch, our host checked us in quickly and efficiently, informing us about the places in town to visit for dinner and purchase groceries etc. We had a fantastic stay and would recommend this lodging to anyone passing by this town.

Free internet in the form of 4 vouchers for 60mb or 1 hour after the code is entered (regardless of usage), whichever comes first, to be shared between the two of us. This was the second Bella Vista we stayed at and again the room was clean but small and had a bit of a cheap feel to it. Definitely was not impressed with the Bella Vista chain. However, this one rates higher than the Fox Glacier Bella Vista due to over twice the internet allotment and a room fee that was 30% less.

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Bella Vista. Very clean room with kitchen facilities, excellent shower and most helpful lady at reception. Good Wifi and a perfect location to walk into the town for shopping, nice bars and restaurants. Beach is within a five minute walk too.

Room Tip: The motel has two floors but we checked in early and got a ground floor room - by early evening all...

Great stay! Very cheap, room was good - basic, decent sized. Lady at reception was nice and helpful. One of the best bella vistas we stayed at. Recommend the glow worm walk at night in Hokitika. The town of Hokitika itself is lovely.

Bella vista is a motel chain of low budget motels. We stayed in three of them arranged by our tour organizer while touring South New Zealand. All three were identically designed with two floors, outdoor corridors, postage stamp sized rooms.The rooms are well equipped, but with low quality furnishings. All hotels were located in wonderful locations within walking distance to attractions, shopping, and restaurants. All have on site mangers/owners.
The property manager was extremely helpful including giving of us a ride to town because it was raining. It was an easy walk to town center. We also were provided free wi fi access which we appreciated. In spite of the very small living space, it was an enjoyable stay.

I recently stayed at this great Motel with a friend on our way to Haast and we were so impressed with the service and quality of the place we stayed again on our way back home rather than driving the whole way. The staff were very friendly and answered all of our questions about the local area and pointed us in the direction of a good bar and restaurant. Both rooms we stayed in were spacious and well organised plus had all of the amenities you expect in a motel of this quality but often don't receive in other places. I would have no hesitation in recommending this motel to anyone.

Stayed here enroute to fox. The room was clean, free milk, free wifi, nice cutleries and cockeries and most importantly the hosts were superb. They went out of their way to give us advice about the directions we should head to in order to go to wanaka as the haast pass was closed.

I call this first class treatment. Thank you sir and maam.

i highly recommend this place for a stopover.
