Reviewed 12 May 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights. Being our first time in Westport, the staff were so friendly and helpful which made us feel very welcome!

Returned to motel each afternoon to a superbly serviced room, beds made, fresh towels, even dishes done! The room had lovely décor, modern but homely and was spotless every day.
Nice and quiet area but walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants/takeaways.

I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

Having been away from my home town on the West Coast for almost two years now, it was lovely to stand outside my unit and watch the awesome West Coast mist descend down.....and then it rained!
Our unit was upstairs, husband forgot to book access room. Up I went with walking stick to find out husband had forgot to book 2 bedroom unit. So, with a queens and a single in one room we settled in for three nights. It was lovely. The beds were comfortable, the room was warm, even during a particularly foul piece of weather. Didnt need to anything. The hairdryer was in the bedroom instead of then bathroom which I found weird at first, until I realised how easy it was to do my hair while the boys were using the bathroom.
Our room had a good sized wardrobe with ironing board and iron. Great has we had a formal function to attend. Although not a full kitchen, I am sure you could whip up an easy snack in it.
The shower had great water pressure and the bathroom was always keot well stocked for our needs. I also asked for extra towels on one of our days, not a problem.
I also used a guest laundry whilst I was here. It too was clean and tidy. Large carparking area. All in all, a quiet, basic retreat away from our daily business.

Stayed April 2013, travelled with family

Hi, thanks for your kind comments. Yes the weather was rather wet for your visit. Hopefully if you visit again we can give you a larger unit.

Marilyn was the perfect hostess, Like most of the places we have stayed, at over our 5 weeks so far in New Zealand, she was very helpful with local knowledge on attractions and restaurants. Room was large very clean (when she showed us into the room she inspected it in detail because she and her husband had been away for a few days and the person who took our booking had been in charge . Needless to say the room was perfect.but it showed her attention to detail looking after guests. Plenty of car parking space. My first experience of Bella Vista and hopefully not my last

Room Tip: 2 level so we prefer ground floor

This is our second time staying at the Bella Vista Motel, Westport. The motel has a high standard of cleanliness, good quality fittings, crisp sheets and thick towels. The bathroom has a very good shower, plenty of hot water, and complimentary toiletries. The owners are friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: We requested a ground floor unit as it is more convenient with luggage.

We have been in New Zealand for 6 weeks and this is the first Bella Vista we have stayed at. If they are all like this one we would be happy to book into them again.

Nice friendly welcome from the owner, plus complimentary milk.

We had booked a two bedroom unit and were allocated Unit 9.

Nice large unit, modern, well equipped, everything you need for you stay, plenty of room to move around in and very clean.

The main room had a very large comfortable bed, compact full kitchen with small oven, two ring hob, fridge with a small freezer compartment, pots and pans and utensils, table for 4 and working desk. Large TV with 50+ Sky Channels.

Off the main room was a second bedroom with a single bed and two bunk beds.

Large bathroom with an excellent size shower unit and powerful shower.

You get 70Mb of free Wi Fi can buy more at $10 for a further 250Mb

Plenty of free car parking.

Room Tip: Unit 9 - Two bedroom well equipped lots of room

On a passing visit through Westport my partner and I spent a night in a king studio.
For some reason we had tended to stay away from the Bella Visita hotels around the country but decided we would stay at the Westport franchise. Happy to say we were presently surprised! The room was very clean, small kitchenette that had all we needed, 50+ sky channels.
I also like hotels that give you real milk not that long shelve like stuff so that was a bonus. Also liked the added touch of a recycling bin. Very friendly host that was more than happy to answer any questions or give advice. Would recommend to others to stay here.

Stayed here for business in early Feburary. Great immaculately clean rooms and Sky Guest Select which was a real bonus. I really want to mention Ross who was on the day I checked in, there were a group of travellers from overseas in front of me when I checked in and he was so kind,friendly and more than happy to give them heaps of advice about where to eat, go, what to do etc it was so nice to find a manager who doesn't just throw a map at people across the desk. Apparently the owners were away on holiday, you sure have chosen great people to represent your business in your absence!
