Motel was fairly basic with small kitchen area which was fine for our needs (we cooked dinner that night). Large lounge but small tv in corner. Kids loved outdoor area with trampoline and sandpit. Quiet area just on outskirts of town. Short drive to town centre and supermarket. BBQ was available for use but fairly dirty so we didn't use... More

this is an older motel but i thought it was excellent as it was spacious, lovely grassy outdoor area with outdoor table and chairs and BBQ. had an excellent sleep as it is in a quiet area of Hokitika. A minute walk to the beach, a few minutes walk to the glow worm dell. We had four adults staying (a... More

Thank you for your time in leaving this review. Thats exactly what we have to offer - spacious, quiet, comfortable and you explained it perfectly. People often comment on how nice it is to spread out here and having the garden to relax in is great after a days travel. Hope you come back and visit the coast one day... More

It was a pity we did not have two nights here as there seemed some interesting things to do there, on the advice of the friendly motel owner. Our two bedroom unit was fully equipped and warm and the main town a few minutes away. We enjoyed the glow worm dell visit after dinner. Seems best to book for dinner... More

Glad you found the unit warm and comfy. If we know when our guests are arriving we put the heater on to warm the room up. Yes there is a lot to do here in Hokitika, a lot of people base themselves here to enjoy what the coast has to offer and there certainly is plenty to do. Thank you... More

Not modern but clean, quiet and comfortable. The tiny kitchen had everything we needed to cook simple meals for ourselves - a must when eating out isn't in the budget and the bed was the most comfortable we had out of the five places we stayed at. For us the location within earshot of the beach was a huge plus.... More

Adele,the receptionist or the owner,is so friendly,she told us so much about Hokitika. Besides,the equipment is also very nice, I enjoy it so much. The only disadvantage is the shower. If I come to NZ next time, I will spend two days or more in Hokitika town.

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.

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.
