Having stayed here several times before... and even recommended it as a nice place to stay to our House of Travel agent we had to lower ourselves to a 'Driftwood room' no ocean view available.. and at peak season prices $163/night(Blair Newell's review says it all) small.. hot.. no aircon.. a warehouse pedestal fan to rotate the hot air.. a fantastic view out the window ..of the wall of the building next door 2 metres away... no lift ..you have to lug your luggage up the stairs. We had the temerity to arrive too early... arrived at reception luggage in hand to 'your room is not ready ..come back after 2pm'... luggage back to the car... go for a long walk. Back at reception... luggage in hand, well after 2pm, we were in... shown a map of where to 'drive'.. to get our room... luggage back to the car and off we drove. The trip was to visit the Kumara races... which we did next day.. great day.. we got back to Beachfront about 6:30pm.. starving..bugger the door key had expired while we were away... zoom over to reception..fixed... back into the room.... well breakfast over at the restaurant was nice lets pop over there, nice food a couple of wines.. great... I even changed...what could go wrong... we popped across the alleyway, signed in (covid QR) prepared to show our vax certificates.. 'Do you have a reservation'... um no ..we are house guests..' we are not taking any bookings until after 7:30'... bother...back to the streets... where we found the 'Kitchen' a lovely restaurant on the cnr Hamilton/Tancred... we were welcomed in.. taken to a table... drinks instantly... and orders... really beautiful meals.. lovely place great service... Beachfront has dropped way down our favourite places to stay list in Hokitika.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel is perfectly situated and cleverly designed so the rooms (in the block we were in, anyway) were all facing the sea. Looking over the magnificent ocean from your balcony is hard to beat, morning or night. Comfortable beds, good showers, and the cafes and greenstone (jade) of Hokitika just around the corner. Definitely the best place in town and one of the best sea and sunset views in the world.

Happy with the quality of the room. Staff very helpful and friendly. Superb location. Would certainly recommend if in the area. Hokitika is a much nicer town than Greymouth so make the effort to come here.

The view to the sea is great and spacious rooms but certain items in room were not clean. The restaurant is not worth it. We paid 37.50 each for lamb and it was the size of a kids meal (if not smaller) and the quality wasnt great. We had to get takeaways after and didnt go back to the restaurant for the rest of our stay. There is no microwave, or proper eating utensils for if you want to get something to eat and bring it back to the hotel or even to have a snack. Very disappointed for the quality and quantity of food. Especially for the prices they charge to stay at the hotel.

Immaculate and only hotel with beachfront views. Welcoming and very clean. The sound of the sea was very calming and reminded us of the worlds best accommodation rooms. Heated bathroom floors and spa bath are unexpected bonuses. Would loved to experience this hotel in the absence of covid restrictions and the West Coast rain.
