      Very nice hotel but plain room”

      Nicest hotel in town for sure, with a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach. Quite expensive. My room was comfortable but felt unfinished, very plain and overlooked the carpark.. why not put up some pictures on the wall, there is plenty of great local art! Staff helpful when I tried to check in early. I didn't eat in the restaurant but had a drink in the bar after eating elsewhere which to be honest wasn't very welcoming as things shut down very early but I was allowed to sit there and have a couple of glasses of wine while the staff shut down the restaurant! Would stay here again though if I have the money and Hokitika itself is lovely.

      Can't say anything bad about our stay here! Clean rooms, comfy beds and great location right on the beach. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant as the prices were a little too expensive. There is a supermarket and a few pubs on the same street within a few minutes walk.

      Service and Location

      Hotel location is right in the middle of town and 5 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket. We got a free upgrade to the hotel new wing with modern furnishing, big rooms and fantastic ocean view. Hotel staff are really friendly and even advised us on the road condition to Fox Glacier the next morning.

      A bit of a mayhem!”

      We stayed at this hotel recently when we visited Hokitika, NZ. While I accept the work going around the hotel, finding Reception was a bit of a mayhem. It was difficult to find and it took us two attempts to find it for us to check in. We weren't the only ones as we had to direct another couple to how to find it. We then had to park amongst the vehicles used by the trades persons working there and the equipment needed for the construction. These aside, it is by the water and we had a fantastic view and so close to it which we loved. The location is also very central and walking distance of the main town. The room itself is clean if a little small. TV channels are also very limited and costly to pay for a movie to watch! All in all, I look forward to seeing the place again on our next visit.

      Beautiful Location and great rooms”

      We only stayed one night, upon check in were offered to upgrade to a sea view room if we wanted to pay the difference, however we chose to stay in our selected room. It was small but perfect for the two of us for a night. Although there were renovation going on at the time, we didn't hear any construction from our room, but we did have a little bit of noise from other guests walking the hallways and closing doors. We ate dinner at the restaurant in house and the food was exceptional. I ate a chicken dish and it was full of flavour and nice and juicy. I would definitely come back to the little town again and stay at the Beachfront hotel.

      Splendid”

      What a positive surprise was! At first sight the frontage and entrance to the hotel was disappointing, once we entered the front of the hotel from the hotel parking area it was fantastic. Right on the beach with the sea directly in front made for a lovely and peaceful visit. The rooms were large and clean, the restaurant looking directly onto the beach was great and all staff we met were lovely and friendly. Just what you need after a long drive. Hokitika also offers wonderful craft shops. One of the best stays over 10 days in South Island.

The staff is very cooperative as they are available till late evenings for checking in. when you are driving from Nelson please come via the west coast drive. it is a amazing drive.

      The ocean rooms really give you get a good view of the sea. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. Note - a little noisy in the morning / during day with the local council doing reclamation work on the beach front near by - but that is not the hotels fault. Staff friendly - no problems there.

      In the center of town

      We were on the ground floor, ocean facing room. Easy to walk out of the room straight onto the picturesque beach filled with driftwood turned to art. Great restaurant at the hotel. Had the lamb and it was delicious. The room was bigger than most we've stayed in on the South Island. It was clean and had a mini fridge to chill your drinks. No kitchenette which we didn't need anyway as the restaurant had tasty dinner options. The buffet breakfast was good value for your money but nothing to write home about. Internet access was a little annoying but paying for wireless seems to be the standard in NZ.

      Location in town, views, modern hotel

      Didn't stay for long, just an overnight stop on the way down the coast. We stopped in the new block, which is a large modern hotel block on the side of the older block. Room was large and modern, clean and the bed comfortable. We arrived late so I didn't have a chance to check out any of the other facilities such as the cafe etc. WiFi is payable. I would recomend spending the extra for a room in the new block as the older block looks a little tired.

      Location, just walk a while you can reach beach

      hotikika is not as famous as greymouth in west coast, but its scenery is very good. this hotel's room rate is not very competitive, but it has a very great location, which you can walk a while to beach and a supermarket opposite to the hotel. location i think is good for hotels in west coast. however, the room facilities is not very new, and i think it is a little bit old. also, the door lock of both building and the hotel room gives me insecure feeling.
