Amazing view from the second floor room looking directly at the snow covered mountains. Room was a good size with a very comfortable king size bed. Large tv , nice kitchenette and heaps of bench space to work at or eat at.The shower and bathroom are really nice with the shower water pressure amazing. The cleaners should be personally thanked for the exceptional job they do in preparing and cleaning the room. Close to town and easy to find. We will return.

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.
