I randomly came across this wonderful place when googling for accommodation near Gore. Shona and Brian are fabulous hosts, and have a simply amazing b&b hidden away in the peace and quiet with a fantastic view. We highly recommend staying here, the accommodation and breakfast are both top notch, couldn't fault it in any way. Thank you for your fantastic hospitality and we will be back again when down your way!

We only stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding in the region, but the room was nice and comfortable, we would have been happy to stay longer! Our hosts were very friendly and even drove us back into Gore to pick our car up the next day. Would highly recommend this B&B. Stunning views, lovely accommodating hosts, and a clean, luxurious room.

Thankyou so much for the best sleep! Very comfortable stay and lovely hosts. I stayed while on the road for work and it was so much more comfortable and warm than a motel, room was warm and bed super comfy. Wifi excellent. I will be back 😊

This is an amazing getaway spot. High on the hills near Gore, it looks out over kilometres of farm land to the distant hills, bring your binoculars! The venue is clean, spacious and comfortable and our host Brian was so lovely (His wife Shona was away at the time). He was knowledgeable about local history and had some good recommendations for eating locally. Our room was so comfortable, had everything we needed and a front seat to those amazing views! Brian cooked us up a feast in the morning and we sampled some of Shona’s delicious marmalade. Wonderful spot!

Spent a night at this spacious B & B - was a beautiful rural spot with spectacular views. Breakfast perfect with cooked option. Our King room was warm, large and light, although the bathroom was a little small. Hosts were warm and hospitable - highly recommended.

By sheer luck, we secured the last room available at Hokonui B&B at the 11th hour. The tranquil setting combined with Brian & Shona's warm hospitality instantly made us feel at home. The full size snooker table was a great surprise, as was the lovely brekky made for us the next morning. We also loved watching the antics in the garden of the dogs, Bob & Duke, with the surprise litter of kittens. Thanks for having us Shona & Brian!

Only a few kilometres from centre of town but a wonderful delight and very clean. Plenty of room and very reasonably priced. Shona and Brian very pleasant and obliging people and will even eat breakfast with you or share a Drink. There is an Aquatic Centre down the road with a hydrotherapy pool for those aching bones after driving. Very relaxing experience.
