Friendly owner, very clean and tidy and ideal if you want a stopover in Hokitika, handy for town with laundry. On the downside it's located on a junction with the main road and the road to the milk processing plant. The trucks, with trailers and serious air brakes, thunder along all night. If you're a light sleeper find somewhere else....

What a nice stay, lovely hosts so welcoming. I really enjoyed your folder on things to do in Hokitika and food places with menus as well very helpful. Nice and clean accommodation nothing to fault here. It's a 10 from me. Thank you enjoyed our stay.

The room was small and basic but clean. What no one tells you is that you are exposed on 2 sides to the main highway and the road to the milk processing plant. Double tanker lorries roar up and down ALL night. We also had a train go through and something else we couldn't identify! I knew the accommodation would...

The front desk personnel are friendly and helpful. The room was nice, although a little on the small side. The location was ideal for us as it's next door to where the Food Festival is held, the reason we went to Hokitika. It's also within a block or so of downtown. Recommended.

Clean, compact room on the first floor. Great welcome and advice/info from reception and a short walk to the centre and beach.The absence of a sink for washing pots etc,, except in the bathroom, was something we found in many places in NZ and is not really acceptable for me.

The room was a little on the small size so it was difficult to find space for two suitcases. It was very clean, as was the bathroom. The location was great to walk into town or to the beach and there was not a lot of noise from the road. The toaster and microwave were handy to have.

Stayed in a compact room - it is compact but fine for an overnight stay. Microwave, toaster etc ideal for a bit of mini catering. Excellent location as easily walkable into town and on the route to the superb Hokitika gorge. Staff superb - very warm welcome and beyond helpful when our car suffered a setback. As we set off...

The room is very small with the tiniest of kitchens. The design i would consider dangerous. Kettle and toaster just squeeze under a low hanging cupboard that gives you 2 inches of room. Then the sink is next to it. There is nowhere else to place the toaster or the boiling jug but right next to the water and sink....

Thanks for your comments. The room is actually designed for disabled (ie) wheelchairs, hence the low hanging cupboard. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

I always stay here when in Hokitika for work. It's clean and tidy and the owners are friendly. An easy 5 minute walk to town centre. Negatives are that it's a tiny bit dated and doesn't get a lot of sun in the rooms. But it's a great motel

Clean & tidy, Double room has a nice bathroom & small Kitchen area Nice comfy bed. Big enough room for a few nights, Wouldn't want to spend 2 week holiday in double would upgrade to a larger room but great for short term stay. Was not that good value for money but the South Island is in high demand.

Thank skiing-family
