Just visited here for a bar meal and whilst there was a long wait for food, it was really nice. However the people on the next table had ordered two lots of Nachos, and one arrived. After a while the family asked the bar maid where the others were and her attitude stank! All she said was "I'm not the...

I'm sorry to say, but this place was simply not good enough to be considered as a hotel. Motel at best would describe it! It was shabby, customer service was bad, and although it is on the beach, it is separated by a large open-access car park. If you've got an "ocean-view" room on the ground floor, be assured, that...

The tariff is too much for this tired hotel, the walls were paper thin, bathroom very tiny. Restaurant was poor. Forgotten order then undercooked beef, OK on the outside but raw on the inside. Checked the order later and it was indeed medium rare . The fish meal was not the greatest either.

Stayed at Hokitika after Boxing Day for one night. Staff was very friendly and helpful with all questions. Payed good money (>200$) for an older non-ocean view room. Those are street-sided with old windows, no A/C and a bathroom smaller than any I have seen before. Furniture, fridge and TV are a bit dated but OK. If you get this...

It certainly wasn't their fault that there was to be no electricity starting at 9pm that day, but we had to find this out by reading a notice. And the receptionist was silent, fixing us with a basilisk-like stare when we debated what to do. Obviously nothing, but a smile, and a remark about what a nuisance it was for...
