I have rated this motel as 5 because of the value for money it offers and the standard of facility provided for the cost paid. The room (11 - an upper room) was a good size, very clean and had an excellent, powerful shower. The views from the upper floor of the mountains are beautiful. It is a bit further away from town but this wasn't an issue for us. You receive 300ml complimentary milk ok check in. There is a cafetiere provided, we brought our own coffee not sure if there was anything provided. The noise from the road did not disturb us, and we couldn't hear any noise coming from other rooms. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
The motel until was tidy, clean and well equiped. Nice place to stay. Just wish people who work in hospitality roles would be happy and upbeat. Or if you not having a good day, then fake it until you make it!
Great location, friendly staff. Comfortable room and bed. Thought it may be noisy as it's on the main road but didn't notice it after a while. Great place for an overnight as we headed north. Bonus, Tiddles the cat. Politely asked to come in and smooched with us for a while.
We stayed a couple of nights at Bella Vista Motel and found it clean, the bed was comfortable (had good quality linen) The shower pressure is the strongest I’ve ever come across! If you need a back massage- stay here! Ha! We stayed in an upstairs unit right next to the stairs and I was worried it would be noisy as we were the first unit everyone would walk by, but it was surprisingly quiet?! Even got a sleep in! However the second morning the fire alarm was activated at 7AM (apparently someone burning toast in another unit) boy it was scary loud!! But at least we know the fire alarms work. It’s in a good location although we had a car so it was easy to get anywhere, it’s also a quick walk into the main part of Kaikoura.
Really comfy two night stay. Nice clean unit feels like it has been recently refurbished. Handy to town, dog friendly as well. Friendly staff very helpful making suggestions of best places to eat. Plenty of parking.
Stop over for One night. Very comfortable great welcoming host. very clean and tidy. Comfortable bed and room. Will stay again next time we are passing through. 10 out of 10 from us.Has a great kitchenette if you need that but we went to the pubs and restaurants in town that were close by.
We stayed two nights and have nothing at all to complain about. Staff very friendly and helpful. Yes agree some things in the unit getting a little tired but same happens at home. Unit very clean and comfy. Bed excellent. We were able to store our bikes in the garage as unit would have been too tight. Good distance from the town centre. We had no problem with noise.
While our upstairs room was clean and spacious, this is a noisy location with big trucks rattling past day and night. Parking is free and on-site and it is a short walk to the main street. There are quieter locations in Kaikoura and we would not stay here again.
A short stay here but we were comfortable. Everything was very clean, great bathroom and comfortable bed. Well situated for everything Kaikoura has to offer. The whale watch trip is definitely worth doing from here. Only criticism was didn't find the staff very warm and friendly.
Stayed here for a night on a South Island tour. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful. The motel is on the main road and close enough walking distance to all the amenities of Kaikoura.
