We arrived in Hokitika late in the afternoon on the Labor Day long weekend. The first place we tried was booked out so we jumped at the chance of securing one of the last accommodations at Beachside. Even though we were a couple, we settled for a two bedroom unit. I was a bit put off at first as the decor, being mostly in shades of depressing blue/greys/blacks, was certainly no kind of aesthetic triumph, however everything was spotlessly clean and set up for functional convenience. The light above the dining table had blown and each time we tried to connect two heaters to the adaptor, both heaters stopped functioning, but despite this we were warm, were able to cook easily and slept comfortably that night! It might be called "Beachside", but it's not beside the beach and there are no beach views - nonetheless, a perfectly adequate accommodation.
