Stayed 3 nights on a recent fishing trip in April and absolutely loved every second of it. Shona and Brian are fantastic hosts that will make sure your stay is thoroughly enjoyable. Brian even took me to a few of his favorite fishing hole and tried spotting fish for me. The weather was perfect and I was able to take... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Hokonui B&B. Shona and Brian were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome and "at home". Their home is big and spacious and the views are amazing. This was definitely the best accomodation we had during our two week tour of the South Island. Excellent value and perfect hosts. Thank you Brian... More

We stayed with Brian and Shona, who were excellent hosts. We stayed in a spacious upstairs room with wonderful views. The building was large, very spacious, modern and very comfortable. (Weddings and other functions are also held here). Breakfast was great. Excellent value.

So glad we read about Hokonui and chose to stay there. Beautiful home, free wireless, clean and spacious room upstairs. Brian and Shona knew tons about the surrounding areas and were so easy to talk to. Shona was also kind enough to give me a book when I told her I had finished mine and didn't have another one! I'm...

If you're staying in Gore, Hokonui B&B is the place to be. Brian and Shona take excellent care of their guests. We stayed 4 nights in an upstairs room that looked out over pastures and distant hills. The design, the work of the hosts, is amazing; every detail is consistent with their modernist vision. A delicious breakfast is cooked to... More

Brian showed us around to some great fishing spots and to some sheep dog training...We brought the wrong plug from Canada for new zealand for our personal computer and next day Brian had one...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. Our hosts Brian and Shona were so friendly and extremely knowledgable about the area. We enjoyed talking with them each day, and my husband really appreciated the fishing tips from Brian! Their home is beautiful, and the views are simply breathtaking. We can't recommend this B&B enough. Thank you Shona and... More
