Our group of people booked 2 doubles and one two bedroom apartment, checked in and given wrong key to the 2 bedroom apartment, there was no remote control in that room and picture fuzzy. Coffee percolator lids all unusable for the three rooms. Internet expensive and slow. No rangehood for the kitchen. Manager on site as owners away and could... More

Have stayed here before. Spacious units at reasonable cost. Friendly host. Found the bed a little hard for my comfort this time. Clean and comfortable. Convenient location close to town but be aware close to railway line if this is an issue for you. It was not a problem for us on an overnight stay.

We arrived in Hokitika without accommodation so went to the I site told them what we wanted and they sent us to the Heritage Highway Motel. We had a studio unit with a spa bath. Very clean and comfortable, lady in the office was very friendly. The only thing we didn't realize was that a railway line ran past the... More

This place is adequate but is really tired. Was here for work and the place we normally stay was fully booked. It's close to town, but that's not hard in Hokitika! Had a room away from the road and while it was mostly quiet, was woken by screeching train noises at 5.50am each morning. Many previous reviews comment on cleanliness... More

A well located and good VFM Motel that is well equipped. It had the bed shower we have had on this trip, good water pressure and loads of water, bliss. Unfortunately the beds were like boards and they wanted to charge for the wifi. Why havent people learnt that wifi should be included. We just went to the very convenient... More

It is right on the main road as you come into town from the south - therefore some road noise - it was a 5 minute walk into town Room was an ok motel style place - clean - no free wifi - 6 sky channels - so not sure why the $140 price tag Probably would not stay again

The woman on reception said this is a 4 star motel - it's not. It is clean but the decor is outdated. We booked the room for our family of four, we were told a rate confirmed by email but when we got there, we were charged a higher rate. They said we could cancel our booking and find alternative...

This was our third stay here. The owners are very friendly. Our tow bedroom unit was very comfortable and great for our family. There is a swimming pool opposite which is great if you need to keep your children busy. Hokitika is a good town to walk round and the beach is worth a visit to see the art work... More

We had not decided whether to overnight in Hokitika or Greymouth, so had not prebooked nor assessed the various options via Trip Advisor. On our return home we did check other peoples reviews and were surprised to find some had had a poor experience, and others excellent with little middle ground. On leaving after one night in a studio unit... More

A bit pricey for a motel. $5 extra for wifi, and only allows one device connected at a time. Room was non-smoking but smelled like bbq/smoke. Not a fan of towels twisted up to look like flowers, they were set on bed and were dingy and old looking. There is a curtain that will cover the clear glass door/entry, but... More
