Stayed a night in the 'new wing' with the ocean view rooms. Everything had the feel of a quality hotel and the big sliding glass doors to the balcony overlooking the sea was just awesome. Enjoyed the spa bath too! Location is spot on - 50m away is a New World, good for picking up the unplanned chips, dip and... More

I stayed for 4 nights for an event being held in Hokitikia. The room was lovely and spacious - was only disappointed that there was no sky and the wifi was expensive so never used it. The room was very quiet - I couldn't hear the rain and gales but ocean noise was quite peaceful

We booked two ocean view rooms on a Saturday Night. We had a great stay. Was surprised to have one room that had a walk in shower and the other had a shower over spa bath. Great view over the beach. Room was very warm in the cold weather. For breakfast we all had the Pancake special and it was... More

Lovely hotel in the centre of Hokitika. Definitely worth being in the ocean view wing, very modern with great ocean views. Would definitely stay here again. Nicest looking place in Hokitika. The furnishing let the room down only a little bit, but still lovely.

Booked direct thru the hotel and had extremely helpful friendly service. Their accommodation ranges from budget to superior! Stayed two nights over long weekend in the Ocean View Wing, level 3 (the newest of the wings). Room was fabulous, spacious, exceptionally clean and modern! Beds great, with a range of pillows (although we brought our own, we needn't had). Shower... More

I have stayed here several times, always like it. Room is very roomy and comfortable. Ocean loud and wild. I was glad it was wet because there were smokers on either side. How does one get away from smoking in establishments? Pity there weren't whole areas of hotels set aside for them... Thanks Beachfront, always happy. Had taken my laptop... More

One strange lift and you had to go outside to get to there restaurant which was a bit expensive especially for breakfast while you are outside turn into the high street and use the café for breakfast and the pub over the road for evening meals much cheaper and good service and food in both.

We stayed 1 night towards the end of the season and I think it told. The room in the new block was spacious, clean and had a very good view. We eat in the restaurant and it was clear very quickly that it was way understaffed- with just 2 waiting on a busy dining room. This was a shame really... More

Our ocean view room in the new wing at the Beachfront Hotel was spacious with a king bed, desk, two armchairs, two luggage racks and had a large bathroom with walk-in shower.

Very helpful woman at reception. She gave us a room in the older section with an ocean view. Extremely comfortable bed and good reception on the free wifi. Motel is situated right in the centre of town but not noisy. Enjoyed a good meal at the pub next door too.
