Overall we were disappointed in this chain of Motels which look so nice in there adverts. This one the room was small, slightly smelly, it had a fridge microwave etc. but it was a bit cramped. I think we were so pleased with the previous nights accommodation we felt let down. Also we compare with Premier Inns in the uk... More

Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay but it sounds like you were more disappointed in the chain rather than our motel. You mention your room was a bit cramped - you did book one of our small compact studio rooms. Regards Claire More

The man at reception was very helpful regarding dining and sightseeing. We arrived in the pouring rain which lasted all night. No lift so had to carry luggage upstairs. The room had an odor of dirty sneakers and carpet was dirty. Least desireable accommodation so far in the country try. Booked based on Trip Advisor ratings and was frankly happy... More

Looks really average at first sight. Seems that any request is not a problem Wonderful warm welcome, our unit was spotless, sizeable and comfortable. Excellent value. We had to leave early the following morning, so our stay was short but really pleasant and would not hesitate to return again.

Just wanted a comfortable bed to stay on the last night of our road trip holiday. This was just what we were looking for. Friendly, helpful staff. A small studio unit with everything we needed for our overnight stay.

Very friendly service. We had a studio. The room was very clean and came with everything that you expect but to be honest I did find it very small. Lying in bed the TV was off to the right and it was awkward to watch. It would have been better where the cupboard was and that could have been swapped... More

The Last of our Bella vistas the room was clean and comfortable, car park straight out the front. Close to town and surrounding areas. No problem with wifi, but I did find the Kitchenette was very hard to do things in, even just making a cup of tea. Things seemed jammed in. Other than that everything else was fine.

We enjoyed the Bella Vista. We had a family room that was spacious enough and clean and comfortable. Location is good. Just a five minute walk in to the Main Street area of Hokitika. The man on reception was very nice and helpful and we really enjoyed our two night stay.

I was given a friendly welcome and some milk for my tea. I felt the price was pretty reasonable. Plenty of parking. Wifi was easy to access and of pretty decent quality.
