Hokitika Heritage Lodge
Ranked #4 of 17 Hokitika B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Our first ever trip to Hokitika and we would thoroughly recommend. The 2bdr cottage was so clean and tidy, and very well appointed. There was even a great toy chest for the kids to explore. The peace and quiet was wonderful and Dianne and Chris were both so welcoming and helpful. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, the property was great and it was safe for our kids to play. Wish we'd bought their bikes! We would definitely stay again.

We spent a night here and it was lovely. We were in a two bedroom room and it was lovely. Spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. We felt extremely comfortable here. Would certainly recommend.

We stayed in the (spotlessly clean) cottage, which had a beautiful interior with good quality furnishings, and had a very comfortable night's stay.

Our host welcomed us on arrival then was unobtrusive the rest of our stay. We had shopped at the supermarket in Hokitika and cooked for ourselves - the kitchen was very well equipped, just like you would expect at home!

We had plenty of amazing views throughout our trip so didn't mind not having a view this night, and enjoyed having the outdoor table. It was lovely having space to spread ourselves in the cottage after living in motel rooms, and great to have washing and drying facilities. It's not in the centre of the town so was peaceful and it was interesting to be staying in a residential area. Could have made ourselves truly at home and stayed for longer!

This was our second night in New Zealand and we were still a little jet lagged. We were welcomed on our arrival by Chris and shown a beautiful room with a view of the valley. Chis and Dianne were extremely helpful with advice on local restaurants, shopping, and the "glow worm grotto" nearby.
It was the perfect beginning to a wonderful New Zealand vacation.

We stayed in the cottage in front of the main house and it was way too big for our needs as we arrived late and were leaving early - the house though is beautiful and has everything you would need for a longer stay! It is spotless inside and out and is very large indeed - will definitely stay here again if lucky enough to travel this way again!

Room Tip: If arriving late bring food as Hokitika closes early!

The self catering bungalow at Hokitika Lodge is a real home from home. It is very well equipped with everything you would need and was spotlessly clean and as new. Chris was very helpful with suggestions as to what sights to see and you can easily fill 2 days exploring the area. The only downside was that the bungalow didn't offer any view, whereas the B+B, just a little way up the driveway had wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a room with a view go for the B+B in the main house. If you want to be able...

High up at the back of the town gives this Hokitika B&B wonderful views. Chris and Dianne where most welcoming to their lovely home . Every home comfort plus top quality accomodation. Fellow guests were as complimentary as we were about our hosts.
And Chris cooks a really splendid full-english breakfast.
Definitely the right place to choose again.
