OK so here is the bottom line. This wasn't a planned stay until we got stranded by a storm. Pluses included: lovely setting along ocean, ocean facing rooms and dining room offer great views of breaking waves, very friendly front desk and dining room staff, room had heated bathroom floors and towel rack, convenient location, good food on dining room....

This is the second time we tried to Book in to the Beachfront Hotel, Hokitika. The first time we were successful. Hotel was tired as were Reception Staff. We booked again in Feb this year well in advance to make sure we got into a Beachfront Room. I insisted they send me an Email Confirmation with Room details etc. Rona... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic, the room we stayed in for one night was not. At $130 per night, we were staying in one of the lower cost rooms. I don't mind that we didn't have much of a view as it was easy to take a walk along the beach to sunset point. But the room was... More

We arrived to find our friends had already checked in and were looking suitably unimpressed. When we got to our room we realised why. Prince William apparently stayed here when he was in Hokitika and loved it. Well you can bet he certainly didn't stay in our room as I tried in vain to find something to love. The only... More

Once the glitch in the system was sorted out and we got our ocean view room that we had paid for, as opposed to the footpath view room that they tried to put us in, it was pure luxury. Wonderful view over the pounding surf, and an excellent meal in the restaurant.

The website had a glitch and although our booking was processed, there was actually no room for us. They rang and advised us of this the afternoon following the booking confirmation. Their treatment was not good - they didn't offer to help us find alternative accommodation or ask if there was anything else they could do to help, just told... More

Only had one night in Hokitika, but spent it well at the Beachfront Hotel. We took in a peaceful sunset on our porch just over the beach. Walked to town for dinner and had a nice breakfast on the way out. A good choice for your stay.

I have stayed twice at this hotel, previously for 4 nights , this time only for1. To have an ocean view room in this hotel is to experience the wild, wondrous beauty of the West Coast in a most intimate fashion. I love to open up the sliding doors and hear the roaring ocean and if you are really fortunate,... More

Arrived in Hokitika and decided to stay the night. A guidebook had recommended this hotel. The reception was fine, but there were no sea facing rooms left. Our room was ok, clean but a bit dated, but the bathroom was tiny. The restaurant was excellent, and the service was superb, with amazing views. The beach is lovely, perfect for watching... More
