Fitzherbert Court Motel
Ranked #9 of 10 Hotels in Hokitika
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Back again a whole year later and this has to be the best motel accomodation in Hokitika. This time there were just the two of us, so the 1 bedroom unit was the way to go. Warm, spacious, functional and importantly clean, clean, clean! Friendly owners

A good balance of clean, tidy and practical rooms with functioning kitchen to cater well for yourself, without being too flash or too expensive. Very friendly and helpful owner with the wonderful "can do" attitude even if one has unusual questions. He advised me my car had a flat tyre overnight, and found a compressor for me to use so I could get to the tyre shop promptly without having to muck around with the spare myself. This allowed me having the tyre fixed from pumping up to returning to the unit within 20 minutes all up. Big Thank You !!

We stayed for one night at this motel in a 2 bedroom unit. The manager was really helpful in advising us of where places to visit and dine at were on checkin. The room was a really good size and despite being the closest room to the main road, traffic noise wasn't really an issue as bedrooms are furthest room away from the road and not much traffic at night anyway. We found it really clean and comfortable and the beds very comfortable too.
Full kitchen is handy if you want to make your own meals, however there are some really nice cafes and dining places in Hokitika too (such as Stumpers).
Since we had our 2 young kids with us, we had a great time doing the treetop walk, the kiwi and wildlife experience, Hokitika Gorge swing bridge, visiting the beautiful Lake Kaniere and Dorothy Falls and the glow worm cave which the kids loved, just a few minutes up the road from the motel.

Only downsides to this motel are that its a bit of a walk to the main shopping street and also some of the décor getting a little bit dated, but its really clean and comfortable (new sofas) and everything you need, friendly manager and Hokitika is such a friendly place with stunning surroundings.
I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to others.

The owner, Dave was really friendly and took time to introduce himself and make us some recommendations of things we might like to do in town and point things out on the map. The room was clean and spacious, with a huge bathroom (a must for girls!) Within an easy 10-15 minute walk from town and about 3 minutes from the Glow Worm caves - which is a must-do in Hokitika.

Room Tip: Perhaps try one of the units behind the house as the road noise did wake me up early, but hey, you...

We were upgraded to a better room at same price. Restored our faith in motels after a poor motel stay in Westport. Owner was very helpful, telling us a trip to take to see the area, including the new high level walkway experience. Happy clients.

We stayed in a 2 bed unit that we had pre booked over wotif.com. We were pleasantly surpised at the size of the rooms. Plus the cleanliness was of a very high standard in all areas of the unit which was a relief. Could not find fault with this. We had a lovely painting above our bed in the double rm. All ground floor units which was great for unloading/loading car etc. Table and 2 chairs outside front door. No back area. We paid $600 for 3 nights for 3 people. Considering the size and cleanliness of the unit we all felt this was good value and would stay again without hesitation. Friendly owners.
