Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On arrival we received a warm welcome. Clean room and comfortable beds. East walk into town centre and to the beach. The motel is by the main road there was no traffic noise. Lots of pressure in the shower. What else can I say to get to the mandated 200 characters? It’s a good place to stay.

This is a clean and comfortable motel within walking distance of everything in Hokitika including the local pool which was excellent. Our 2 bedroom room had a separate bedroom but that meant there was a large bed in the living room area which we could have done without. There is a separate laundry area but you do have to pay to use it.

Great place to stay for our few nights on the west coast. Perfect for our wee family. Nice to have small oven and hot plates to cook when we needed. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and great location. Would definitely recommend and stay again ourselves.

I have stayed at Bella Vista Hokitika many times over the last 6 or 7 years and I’m alway happy when I find my work takes me there once more. It’s just good old fashioned service I enjoy, the rooms are always spotless , bed linen fresh and clean, the hosts are always welcoming and the little touches like pre warming the rooms for your arrival on wet and cold afternoon just make you feel at home . My company now know that’s the only place I will stay at when I’m in Hokitika . Dave Ewen

Have stayed in Bella vista's in other towns. Hokitika's was disappointing. Admittedly stayed at a busy time but we had a tiny cramped room - not much bigger than a caravan. No sink so dishes had to be washed in the hand basin in the bathroom. Suitcases had to be on the floor so very little room to.move around. Only one armchair to watch tv
