Stayed here 3 nights in May. First night power cut due to massive storm. Within minutes the owner was round with candles. Snuggled up with our electric blanket we were fine! Met Charlie the friendly cat next day, nice welcome. Very comfy at the Jade Court, nice people, very clean & well-kept.

We stayed a night in Hokitika and this hotel is very convenient, the room is spacious and very well equipped, very warm, the jacuzzi was extremely pleasant. The rooms are far from the road so very calm : we had a very pleasant night. The manager was nice.

We spent 2 nights here and it was the cheapest accommodation we had in New Zealand. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was very clean but a bit soulless. The bed linen was very dated and needed to be replaced. It was also very noisy as it was very close to the railway line. We were non too pleased... More

The room is large and has a handy little kitchenette, but the place is pretty close to the railway tracks -- when the train passes it is really loud. I also found that my room had a musty/smoky smell to it, which wasn't pleasant... and this was the only place I stayed in that had the really cheap 1-ply toilet... More

We enjoyed a comfy nights stay at this motel. We were 3 couples so had 2 x 2brm units. Suited us well. We had a bbq for our evening meal cooked outside using the facilities. Close to stroll to shops in town. Friendly staff.

Immaculate facilities, nicely appointed bathrooms with toiletries, kitchenette (which we didn't use) -- this is a hotel which is much nicer that it looks from the street! Staff were helpful and we slept well.

We stayed here one night enroute to the Glaciers. Graham was helpful in advising where to eat. There is a lovely Garden area to sit as well as laundry facilities. The Motor Lodge has been refurbished .The large room is equipped with a kitchenette,sofa and very large bathroom. Bed very comfortable. Would highly recommend .

To be honest, this wasn't our first choice for Hokitika accommodation. But as our first choice was booked weeks in advance, we had to find another place. Jade Court Motel is an older-style, budget motel but it is a good value. Our studio unit was a good size, clean, sunny, comfortable, and well-maintained with some updated features, such as the...

Hokitika bills itself as a "cool little town", but compared to everywhere else on the West Coast, frankly, it's a dump. The Jade Court is nice - people friendly, rooms clean but avoid paying extra for a King Spa room - the tank's not big enough to fill the bath. I asked them about it and they said that it... More

Very easy to locate and close the the town centre. Clean and tidy accommodation offered by a friendly host. We had a one bedroom unit that had a full stove, which was just as well as we gave up on eating out. We were able to cook a frozen pizza from the local well stocked supermarket. There was an incredibly... More
