    AWESOME SERVICE”

    Great service from the managers

    We used AGODA to book two nights accommodation at the Bella Vista Motel Kaikoura and somehow AGODA booked us in and the Bella Vista Motel didn't have any rooms left. We only found this out on arrival after driving up from Christchurch. Well, when we arrived the manager of the Bella Vista Motel Kaikoura - can't remember her name sorry - had already seen that she didn't have a room available and she rang around a very busy Kaikoura and secured us two nights accommodation. This service was immense, and above and beyond anything I'd of expected anywhere in the world: phenomenal, there's no other word for it. The manager even took us over to the new motel, introduced us and set us up over there: fantastic. In the end we are very sorry that we never got to stop at the Bella Vista Motel Kaikoura.

    The room was very clean and more modern than expected. The bathroom came with heated towel rails and flooring, lovely amenities and small touches like a separate make up remover face washer. The beds were comfortable and kitchen facilities were very good and clean also. I am not one to bother writing reviews but definitely thought Bella Vista was worth it!

    So much more than a chain motel!”

    We weren't expecting that much when we booked this hotel room, and from the outside, it looks like a typical chain motel. Upon our arrival, however, the personal welcome by Brandon, the hotel manager/owner?, including a pint of fresh milk to put in our fridge let us know that this was no typical motel. The well-equipped kitchenette, the free washing machine and clothesline (!), and the thoughtful assistance when we had an issue with one of our tour bookings--this was hospitality above and beyond anything we've ever experienced in a motel setting. And the sunrise lighting up the snowy mountains visible from our upstairs room was amazing!
