“Best place in Hokitika”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

I stayed in the ocean view rooms (not sure what the driftwood wing would be like as it looked very outdated and frankly a bit scary in comparison!). The ocean view wing is very modern, with new fittings and facilities - very clean rooms, with mini bar and all the little luxuries. I only stayed the 1 night in Hokitika, but really enjoyed the private balcony facing the beach. Room and bed was very comfortable, the heating took a while to work out - but I figured out the bathroom even had floor heating! Definitely think this is probably one of the nicest places to stay whilst in Hokitika - for a more luxury hotel. The service was ok, but nothing to boast about. I had breakfast only in the restaurant, which was also nothing to boast about and far too expensive for the meal I received, but otherwise, would recommend this place.

A beachfront hotel in the middle of the town, which delivered exactly what it said on the tin. Our room was comfortable but the bed was very soft, not to my liking. Initially we had a courtyard facing room, a very small courtyard and when we asked for a beachfront room, we were moved without fuss. Food and the restaurant area was not flash, but the quality of food was good. Not a huge choice but plenty and you would not go hungry. The hotel had a bar area attached at main street level which you can eat in, but if you like peace and quiet not really appropriate as the bar was full both of the nights we stayed from locals having a drink (not a problem). The staff from the reception area right through to the restaurant/bar were very good, friendly and always happy for a chat..

Room Tip: Always ask for a beachfront facing room, anything else could be noisy or looking at walls or street.

We were on our way down south and stayed for just one night. The new hotel rooms are really nice (ocean view) also the restaurant offers a tasty good food. A bit pricy though but good.
The woman who checked us in was a bit grumpy but the nice lady who checked us out balanced it, she was really friendly.

Theres not a lot of luxury hotels in Hokitika, but this is the closest option. Great location on the ocean, rooms were decent, a few little touches and they could be really nice. No one likes hotel bedspreads. They never get washed. There's a reason your mom never let you touch them when you were a kid. Be warned that the shower is just part of the bathroom floor and completely floods the bathroom when you shower. Not bad if you're only staying a night, but would be annoying longer term. The girl at the front desk and the woman who runs breakfast were both super nice.

Lovely place - nothing in the room said, 'let's save a few cents by upsetting our guests'. Warm, stylish, overlooking the sometimes-awesome Tasman and the bed was just right. Heated bathroom tiles, a short walk to the best pizza in NZ at Fat Pipi, and quiet save for the crashing surf. Really quite nice.
