We stayed in the family unit - just right for what we needed. Certainly not a new motel & maybe a bit dated, but was good value for money, very close to the beach & glow worms, and walking distance from town. Excellent hosts.

We booked a studio room and stayed for 1 night. We were satisfied with our stay & will recommend this to others. 1 of the few establishments in NZ that accepted Amex without additional charge, so I was pretty happy with it. Room was clean & spacious, bed was comfy, kitchen was sufficiently equipped for basic cooking. Table & chairs... More

The motel is located in a quiet area some 5 minutes drive away from Hokitika town centre. Our room was one of eight in a block reminiscent of a holiday camp. However, the facilities were clean and comfortable despite being a little basic, and there was a small garden area to the rear with parking to the front. It was... More

An older style motel, with a large room and good kitchen and bathroom facilities, close to beach and on the edge of town in a quiet location, nice grassed sunny courtyard area. Very friendly onsite managers

Stayed one night in motorhome. Pitches cramped, gravel and characterless. Only room for about 10 vans. Not a place you would want to linger. Facilities adequate. Probably the least appealing site on our trip.

Thanks for leaving the review of our site. No its not pretty it is a basic site with hard surface for 11 vans. There is two showers and toilets in each the mens and ladies and an access bathroom for those that need it or for people with small children. 1 minute from the beach and 3 minutes from the... More

The motel is located at the northern end of town, just off the SH6 and is easy to find. There are no shops or restaurants close to the motel, which is about 1km out of town. It is within 2 minutes walk of the beach and 5 minute walk of glow worm dell, one of the town’s tourists’ attractions. It... More

Thanks for leaving such a descriptive review of our motels. Yes it is an older style building but people keep coming back because they love the space and location which of course is very quiet being away from the busy highway. More

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.

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.

Complimentary tea and coffee in the room. - Spacious, clean... More
