Great facilities and very clean and tidy. Location was close to town but still very quiet. The room was nice and big with good facilities for catering for ourselves. The hosts were friendly and helpful.

Only stayed one night but had a great welcome on arrival. Room good although fairly compact, well presented, clean, generally well equipped but fry pan on application. Reception well run and very helpful with Wi-Fi requirements. Good location for strolling around town. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Better that some other Bella Vistas

We arrived at the Bella Vista Hokitika after a long day driving from Christchurch. We were greeted by a friendly lady at reception and quickly checked in.
Our room was very small but we knew this when we booked, as it was advertised as a compact studio. However it was imaculately clean, comfortable and quite suitable for our needs. The room was good value too (thanks Agoda) compared to other Bella Vista rooms throughout NZ ie Franz Josef, Wanaka etc We were given vouchers for free WiFi which was very handy.
The location was great too. Close to shops and the beach. Our room didn't have a hotplate so we ate out.
On checking out we met our host. He was so informative and helpful about the area. Recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you don't want a very small room avoid the compact studio and pay a little more.

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.
