Stopped in Holitika on a night when it was pouring rain so was stuck in our room...great place for a night in though. Unlimited internet, plenty of TV channels, comfy beds and a decent bathroom did the job on a rainy evening. Great value and highly recommended.

Great location - right in town. The owner was very helpful and told us about things to do like see the glow worms. Room was really good value and I'd stay there again.

Had high hopes for this place, it was immaculately presented with a nice sized ensuite. Very clean and modern with a mirror in the room which is really handy. But the bed ... we inched ourselves out the next morning creaking, not so enjoyable. We had a studio with ensuite which was fine for one nights stay.

Hubby and I stayed in a studio unit recently for 2 nights. The studio was small but it had everything we needed and was very clean and we had a great nights sleep. The motel is situated on the main road into Hokitika and there wasn't much noise in the evening as the road is quiet at night. The middle... More

At 55 GBP it proved relatively cheap for a motel. Overall value was average compared to other motels on our trip. It was clean, the shower was ok and the bed fairly comfortable. I would recommend for people looking for basic accommodation...

Lovely motel, spotlessly clean with excellent attention to detail. We stayed in a family room that was very spacious with a well equipped kitchen area. Even had a spa bath! Located just a short walk from the sea and town centre.

We stopped here for one night on our way through. Very warm welcome, we were taken to our room in pouring rain and driving wind. Comfortable room and a great bed. We'd happily stay here for 2 or 3 nights if we were exploring the area.

The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the centre of town. Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable, with an up to date fitout. Microwave and fridge, plates and cutlery are provided, as are tea and coffee. The price was fair for the accommodation.

Close to absolutely everything, friendly staff, warm and totally spotless room with EXCELLENT water pressure and a wonderfully comfortable bed. Really couldn't have asked for anything more. we had a very basic room but it was far more than we expected from it. Will stay here again next time without any hesitation.
