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

Sorry you had a noisy experience here at our Campervan Park it is small and some people have no idea they are making so much noise. Yes it is a compact hard stand site but when we have a heavy rain shower here on the west coast it is a blessing as the water drains very quickly and there are... More

I told the truth to Brian about my miniature fox terrier sleeping with me and asked if that was acceptable to which he said yes but don't tell my wife. I offered to bring sheets and he said not to as the sheets weren't theirs and they were laundered. I asked again was he sure it would be ok and... More

This small town has few hotels, arriving in the evening, not easy to find vacancy. We were lucky, when we want to the hotel, the owner was receiving a cancellation call and he gave us the room. Guided us for the local tour.

I stayed here with my wife around a month ago, just for one night. We stayed in the budget studio. The room was cheap and basic. But not in a bad way - it was the cheapest place we stayed on our trip, and this was reflected in the facilities and decor, but it was absolutely fine. It was spotlessly... More

Thanks for the review on our budget studio, actually a lot of people like that room even though its not our best it is very quiet and comfortable in there with a good shower flat screen tv on the wall so you can lie in bed and enjoy your programme. Cooking facilities limited but you can cook a basic meal. More

Brian and Adele were very helpful and friendly right from the time of booking and until we left. Brian advised the appropriate sized unit for our party of 4, lots of local information was offered including updates about the bike trail, Adele kindly helped with our vehicle location from Kumara so we could do the full loop back to Hokitika...
