We booked this as everywhere else was full for the days we wanted. We had read some reviews and were concerned regarding the noise people had referred to. Our room was in the middle of the property and both nights the motel was full. On one night several families travelling together with teens were on either side so we expected...

There is rarely any highway noise as it is mainly a tourist highway. Our apologies about the wifi not working however this outage was not something we have any control over. We are looking at a TV upgrade as...

This motel has a reasonably large room with a very large bathroom. The room was very clean and tidy and well priced for this level of motel. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and a microwave. It is easily within walking distance to Hokitika township across the main highway. Not sure about wifi as I have my own.

A great place to stay close to our grieving family . A comfortable accommodation for us to rest our heads and at a reasonable price. Very warm and friendly staff, the rooms were reasonably sized. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My brother and his wife heard a train I am still waiting to hear it. A pleasant stay indeed!

Have stayed here before. Spacious units at reasonable cost. Friendly host. Found the bed a little hard for my comfort this time. Clean and comfortable. Convenient location close to town but be aware close to railway line if this is an issue for you. It was not a problem for us on an overnight stay.
