We stayed at the Bellbird back in 2004 and again this year (2013). The rooms have furnishings from the 50s or 60s, but are very clean and comfortable. Both units where we have stayed included a living area, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a toilet with shower. There is ample room to park a car (although we visited here first when we were on bicycles). The owner is pleasant. Wi-fi was free. We stayed 2 nights and drove to Westport (1 hour each way) to run a race the second day.
The outside of the motel needs some work (painting mostly), but the inside of the unit had been recently painted and well-kept. If you are near Reefton, this is a great place to stop for a night.
