Great location for an unknown holiday gem. Would have liked several more days. Generous welcome - Dale happily gave descriptions of local highlights and activities. Must find time to return for several days.

Stayed one night at this Motel on our way down the coast. Excellent choice. Rooms were spotless and airy. Located on main road through the town.( no noise whatsoever) Town itself was lovely. Would highly recommend this as a stopover. Dale the proprietor was very friendly and helpful. I wish all Motels were like this.

Good location, friendly, informative staff. Room was compact, clean with all the facilities necessary to prepare a small meal, breakfast and tea. Free WIFI which worked well. Good shower pressure, not a bad place to stay

This was a fantastic stop on our trip from Christchurch across Arthurs Pass. The owners were delightful and the rooms were lovely and clean. You couldn't hear any noise from outside and it was very close to town. Highly recommended.

Very friendly and knowledgable hosts, gave some great hints about the best jade places to go to and how to get there. Nice, clean room with comfy beds and quiet even though the motel is close to a main road.

Clean and nice room available at the last minute. The manager was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for dinner, jade shopping and the drive into Arthur's Pass. Glad we stayed here. Absolutely recommend it for anyone looking in the area.

Friendly owner, very clean and tidy and ideal if you want a stopover in Hokitika, handy for town with laundry. On the downside it's located on a junction with the main road and the road to the milk processing plant. The trucks, with trailers and serious air brakes, thunder along all night. If you're a light sleeper find somewhere else....

The room was small and basic but clean. What no one tells you is that you are exposed on 2 sides to the main highway and the road to the milk processing plant. Double tanker lorries roar up and down ALL night. We also had a train go through and something else we couldn't identify! I knew the accommodation would...
