The room is very small with the tiniest of kitchens. The design i would consider dangerous. Kettle and toaster just squeeze under a low hanging cupboard that gives you 2 inches of room. Then the sink is next to it. There is nowhere else to place the toaster or the boiling jug but right next to the water and sink....

Thanks for your comments. The room is actually designed for disabled (ie) wheelchairs, hence the low hanging cupboard. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

I always stay here when in Hokitika for work. It's clean and tidy and the owners are friendly. An easy 5 minute walk to town centre. Negatives are that it's a tiny bit dated and doesn't get a lot of sun in the rooms. But it's a great motel

Clean & tidy, Double room has a nice bathroom & small Kitchen area Nice comfy bed. Big enough room for a few nights, Wouldn't want to spend 2 week holiday in double would upgrade to a larger room but great for short term stay. Was not that good value for money but the South Island is in high demand.

Hokitika was totally worth the stop, Bella Vista was a nice motel, main bed in living room was so comfortable- if you like firm beds, girls enjoyed having their own beds but not used to singles. We stayed upstairs and it was very quiet.

This is our second stay in a Bella Vista Motel (see our previous report on the BV Motel in Wanaka). This motel was also spotlessly clean, and really well appointed. The motel is located on the main road through Hokitika, which can be busy during the day, but we were not bothered by road noise during the night. It is...

Tidy and clean and the owner was very accomodating with information about where to eat dinners and breakfast the next day. I would recommend this motel if you are travelling the west coast region of New Zealand.

Could not ask for more in a small town like Hokitika. Stopped here for a night on way to CHC from Franz Josef. Cozy rooms and extremely clean bathrooms. Very close to the city center as well. We used this stop to Visit Punakaiki. Rooms are just large enough to sleep a family of three or 4 (assuming young kids)....

We only stayed one night, and that is just as well. Other than Hokitika Gorge, the town was nondescript. The hotel was much the same. A clean, simple, roadside inn. It was a bit difficult to keep cool though; your only option is to open all of the windows, and the place seems to bake in the afternoons. Enough so...
