Following a tip from another Tripadvisor member we chose to stay in Hokitika over Greymouth for 1 night. We booked ahead requesting an Executive Room.
We can’t fault our stay. We had a 4th floor room in the new wing which was spacious, contemporary in design with wonderful views. The glass balcony helped in giving an airy feel to the room. The bathroom was also large with a great walk-in shower.
There is also a small gym on the 4th floor overlooking the beach.
We didn’t eat at the hotel in preference to seeing something of the town. We had a lovely meal at the Café de Paris.
Not sure if it was a special offer at the time we were there (can’t remember if our rate had included breakfast), but in any case we were given breakfast vouchers to the value of $30 to take in the Driftwood Café, and had a good breakfast before continuing on to Pancake Rocks.
The reception staff were extremely pleasant.
