Stayed here for one night in the beginning of August. Glad we chose this accommodation, Brian and Adele are very hospitable and friendly. The room setup was in excellent condition and loved that it was just a stone throw from the beach. A must stay place if one visiting Hokitika. Thanks Adele and Brian, we'll be there again soon :)...

This hotel is actually my second or third choice, but I am very happy that I did choose it in the end. We wanted to go to the glowworm dell in Hokitika because it is free, and thus deliberately chose a place that is within walking distance. Adele checked us in, and although I messed up the booking by a... More

We had booked ahead online for this accommodation, from Australia. When we arrived the lady at the counter was very helpful with providing local information and allowed us to check in early. She also suggested given we have the need for a cot, another option may be more suitable due to space and showed up us both options. This was... More

I was upset and saddened by your rejection of our property which we take great pride in presenting as best we can considering the 40 year old age of the place. I was upset for our cleaners who in the last 3 months along with my husband and I have scrubbed and cleaned the place in our usual spring clean... More

It was extremely easy to feel welcome upon our arrival, as I had exchanged several e-mails/phone calls with Brian and Adele prior to our arrival. For our group I had reserved 4 units but Brian made another suggestion in order to lessen our costs...how thoughtful. One would not rate this establishment as 5 star, in that it doesn't come with...

Very friendly and helpful owners. We enjoyed wonderful 2 day stay in Hokitika. Our daughter loved the garden tranpoline and swings. The room felt a little bit tilted, but spacious enough for 3 of us. Next time we visit Hokitika, we definitely come back. Thank you.

We stayed do 2 nights and , by far , the beds were the comfiest of any motel/hotel I have stayed in . Was a bit cooler 2nd night so staff popped in and just turned heaters on while we were out . Can't beat that sort of thoughtfulness . Loved the coast and the people .

We have stayed at this Motel on numerous occasions and Brian and Adele's friendly attitude and excellent accommodation has always been a favourite. We have a dog who has always been welcome at the Motel. It is difficult to find good pet friendly accommodation in New Zealand but this one is tops of the list.

Friendly welcome. Tidy motels with plenty of parking. We liked the fact that the living area was a good size for a two bedroom motel as we had stayed in one in greymouth that couldn't fit the six of us in the living area. Kitchen was a bit small but well equipped. Lovely quiet spot with beach very handy which... More

On arrival Brian was very friendly and knowledgable about the local area and made lots of helpful suggestions. We did not however realise until after checking in that the camper van site was basically a car park with no views despite the beautiful beach being a stones throw away. The communal eating area was practically opposite our pitch and people... More
