Selected this motel for conference accommodation. Was quiet, adequate facilities but pretty much 1970's. Kitchen facilities minimal. Clean and warm, and Dave a great host. Wifi connection annoying - need to have fulltime access in this day and age.

Overpriced for what it is. Wifi doesn't work very well . Fixtures are very minimalist Very noisy being next to railway. Quite cold and musty as only single glazed. Wouldn't want to be staying longer than 1 or 2 nights. Friendly staff though.

I believe this motel is rated as 4 star, but we could only give it 3. The room was large and clean but very basic. The furniture was old and inexpensive. The wifi was free but slow. The kitchen was also very basic. Bathroom was old with mix of towels that was fine but not what you'd expect in a... More

Good location less than 1km from town. Large room (ample space for reorganising suitcases) Comfortable bed and pillows OK. Small continental breakfast will be provided on request. No air-con. There is a rail line at the rear of the property but not a regular service so not a problem. Staff friendly and helpful with recommendatiomns for local restaurants

눇Nice cosy motel located at the entrance of Hokitika just a 5 minutes walk to the beautiful beach located behind the dunes. Spacious room well equipped. The only disappointing issue was the most basic welcome by the lady manager we have seen so far in this friendly country. As we drove in by Intercity bus we were,lucky that the driver... More

Made to feel very welcome, helpful advice about the area. Well equipped for a 2 night stay. Did not worry us that room backs onto the railway line we slept well. Recommend visitors take time to explore the harbour entrance, museum, wilderness gallery for great gifts to take home. If you have the time drive 33ks and visit the Hokitika... More

A friendly and efficient welcome awaited us giving us a good impression of the place right from the start. The studio unit which we had was very comfortable, with plenty of space and comfortable beds for a good night's sleep. The kitchenette was well appointed. We will stay here again when we next visit Hokitika.

Our family of 6 stayed here for 1 night in a 2 bedroom unit. It was good value, easy check in, friendly proprietor, and a gorgeous corner spa bath to wash away the day's travels. Clean and quiet, a great stay.

This was an ok one night stay in our New Zealand trip. Compared to other places we stayed, it was very average; did have nice kitchenette, was clean, and the owner was helpful. Wifi was limited. A bit to far to stroll into town for dinner. We'd probably look for another option next time.
