This was a great motel. It had a little fridge, kettle, television, free wifi and other bits and pieces. It's in a wonderful location, only five minutes from the town center. Would definitely recommend to others.

Well placed, good, clean , convenient and handy for all the downtown eating drinking and shipping facilities. Also easy access to the beautiful beach with all the amazing driftwood sculptures. Very friendly staff and good service.

It's a well-situated hotel with a medium-sized room and a great bathroom (honestly, it's half size of the room!). The owner was very nice to us. There is only one thing: there is no direct access to the sea as there are railroad tracks that you can't cross, you have to go left and then access the sea and the...

My partner & I stayed here along with my son & his girlfriend in December, as part of our "Road Trip" from Christchurch to Hanmer Springs. The rooms were quite small but adequate and very clean, with a shower room & small kitchenette which was handy for preparing breakfast which was not included in the price of the room. The...

Shame you found it noisy, most of our guests comment on how quiet it is even though we are situated on the main highway. Hope the rest of your road trip was pleasant. Dale & Claire

Does what you'd expect for a motel: provides a Carpark and a room with a bed and loo and shower. Good value for a one night stop heading for more exotic places. Friendly staff. Clean. Not a lot to see in Hokitika when the sock museum is shut! Walk the beach and look at driftwood. At night the town smells...

We stopped in several Bella Vista Motels in NZ. They are all pretty much the same design. Rooms are a little small, but fine for just one or two nights. This one in Holitika was central and we could walk to the town centre and the beach in just a few minutes. The motel was clean, plenty of hot water...

I guess it was what I expected for the money. Small, clean (or at least perfumey!) and compact. The eternal problem for me staying in Hokitika is the fact that the town is just not that nice. It needs some local leadership to spruce the place up and turn itself into a truly memorable tourist stop!

Good afternoon Mr Walker Thanks for your feedback, It sounds like you may have more of an issue with Hokitika than our motel. The town does have a lot to offer any traveller as it is one of the top tourist destinations on the West Coast. Im pleased you found your room clean and quiet Dale & Claire

This is one of the best Motels we have stayed at. The proprietors went out of their way to make our stay memorable, the rooms were lovely and clean, we would certainly recommend this Motel to anyone going to Hokitika. Thank you so much for your hospitality Dale and Claire
