I will always regret, that we did not stay for two nights and that we did not have that glas of port with Francis! Teichelmann is a very cosy place with a lot of historical background and a good couple, who run the place, and especially Francis was so helpfull with informations where to go and what to do and...

My friend read up about the Teichelmann's B&B and literally 'hunted the owner down' for a booking (they were on their holidays at the time she made initial attempts to book,) and this place worth all her hard efforts to do as such. The place is full of amazing history of the "Little Doctor" who'd lived a very full life... More

We only had one night on Hokitica, but wish we could have spent get. As we were the only guests, we were given the garden room, which was lovely. Spacious with a very comfortable bed and spa bath. The hosts were very friendly with a wealth of local knowledge. Very pleasant stay in a lovely little town

Nice people serving excellent breakfast. Room is rather small, shower only for short people, and beds were horrible. This is a building with a rich history that is interesting to know about. Owners welcome you and are very helpful.

Dr. Teichelman was a fascinating and gallant figure in Hokitika during the gold rush days. He built this house more than 150 years ago. Francis and Brian are the current caretakers of the wonderful piece of history who keep the good doctors memory alive. More than that they regaled us with stories of the gold rush days and the history... More

Cozy room on the second floor with a steep staircase up. We had a private bathroom but one of the rooms had a private bathroom in the corridor. Good location, close to everything. Helpful and friendly hosts who offered Sherry. Fantastic breakfast where we really can recommend Egg Benedict.

We were recommended a stay at this B&B an we were not disappointed. Brian & Frances were perfect hosts and very friendly. A cup of tea on arrival and a nice chat on our return in the evening. The highlight was the breakfast next morning which was well cooked and the fruit compot was fantastic. The owners tend to only... More

My husband and I loved staying there. It is too bad that our stay is so short. The owners are super friendly. Our room was facing the back yard and it was nice and quiet. Our room was clean, the bed was super comfy and warm. The house is located in downtown a block away from the beach and close... More

We only stayed for one night but wished we had stayed for more. Just off the centre of Hokitika with parking just outside. Brian & Frances are great hosts injecting lots of knowledge along with dry humour to start of your day with a smile. The breakfast is wholesome with fresh fruits and home made Jams to die for. The...

Fantastic owners, extremely friendly, very professional, superb hosts. Breakfast was amazing, so much choice. Room was perfect. Would recommend this B&B every time. Perfect location in middle of this small town. Now I see why it got so many 5 star reviews.
