Very nice room with kitchen. Owners helped us do laundry. Went to the Glow Worm attraction. Watched the sunset on the beach. Had a great dinner downtown. New Zealand's south island is so beautiful. We walked up to the Fox Glacier.

The clean spacious motel unit we had at the end of our fabuous Wilderness Cycle trail was just right for a well earned rest. The 2 bed unit, although a little dated, also had a lovely sunny garden for the afternoon/evening and was walking distance to beach and glow worm dell. Big well maintained pool was appreciated too. Recommended.

We have 4 of us booked a two room apartment. Very nice building, and close to the beach, walkable in 5 minutes. The manager gave us the best advise, we are successfully catch up the sunset right after check-in upon the given time table; also he guided us the place to see the glow worm, in the bush just besides...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of our motel. Our location is perfect for a view of the sunset a short stroll takes you to the beach and when its really dark a 3 minute walk would have got you to the glow worm dell but that evening you must have been too tired.

My wife and I stayed in a studio room for one night in February 2015. Things I liked: - Friendly welcome and tourism advice at reception (presumably the owners). - Good sized room, comfortable bed, dining table and chairs, TV (didn't use). - Kitchenette, including refrigerator, microwave, cooktop and utensils. Complimentary tea and coffee in the room. - Spacious, clean... More

Only a limited area for campervans, more motel style accomodation. But very comfortable and well equipped for campervanners. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities all within easy access and very quiet. Staff at reception are very helpful. We stayed twice on return journeys. Only a short walk to the beach, great for fossicking, and the glow worm dell is just up... More

This was our 2nd stay here in 2 years, and we were very comfortable in one of the cottages. It was well furnished and a good fit for our family of 5 adults. It was clean. We especially appreciated the free WiFi. However, after leaving Hokitika, we realized that we had been charged more than the quoted amount. In answer... More

Hello Mildred My husband recalled the conversation or letter we sent regarding 5 of you in cottage saying the two bedroomed unit may be more comfortable because there is more space but you opted for the cottage which you obviously enjoy and thank you for the kind remarks regarding the comfort you enjoyed there. We dug out the original booking... More

We only stayed one night but the place is comfortable and charming with friendly staff. Hokitika is a lovely little town, good to watch the sunset and would recommend the whitebait pizza. Glow worms are very close by but not really visible until it is properly dark.

Nice clean motel near the beach. The glow worm dell is only a few minutes walk away, and well worth a visit. The motel staff are very friendly and helpful with information. Hokitika is very interesting place to stay. Only downside was that you had to sit on the doorstep to get the WiFi to work.

We weren't there for long, arrived late and were gone in the morning, the cottage had everything we needed and the owner were very friendly and helpful. They showed us all the place of interest and we went to the Glow Worm dell and enjoyed it.

Thanks for the review you have left Dianne. Your family certainly made the most of everything here and for a long term stay I think the two bedroomed units on the main motel block are best for families as they are larger and if you have young children the playground is at your back door. Look forward to seeing you... More
