The Motel was up to the Bella Vista standards. Lovely ground floor room, could see the glacier.
Service - Only in the West Coast. Discovered I had left my handbag on the back of a chair in a cafe on Ross - (On the road between Hokitika and Franz Josef.) when I went to pay on booking in. Not a problem they said - The bus from Holitika will not have left yet and he could collect it at the Ross shops when he drops off the papers.
Couldn't get through to the cafe. She was ringing us. Had found a receipt for the Westport Bella Vista in my handbag and had heard us saying we were going to Franz Josef thought we might be staying there. She took the bag to the shop, the driver picked it up and dropped to Bella Vista Franz Josef and I had it in 3 hours. You can;t get better service than that.
