The Kokatahi Hotel has been in operation since the late 1800's, and is the original home of the Kokatahi Band. The hotel has been upgraded over the years, but the same old country charm remains, as well as the original Axminster carpet! We offer complimentary tea, coffee and toast as part of our room rate, and a full cooked breakfast on request for a charge. Our kitchen is open for meals Friday night, and other meals and packed lunches can be supplied by prior arrangement. We have shared ladies and gents toilets, and communal showers. You can sit out on our deck, taking in the sun and beautiful views of the surrounding area, gardens or watch the lazy fish in our pond, only don't believe what they tell you - they are not hungry!!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife really enjoyed the vegan flatbread and vegan chocolate cake. I enjoyed an omnivore toastie with chips (french fries) and a mocha. All for $25.50 (NZ). We stopped during a visit to beautiful Hokitika Gorge.

Nice genuine people and a fascinating district. The Dog, Pig, Chickens, and Goldfish made it. The rooms are tidy and comfortable. The hosts are warm and welcoming in their own unique way. True Kiwi accomodation, I've worse looked after in Hotels. Just don't turn up before 4pm.

Same price as most hostel but much more cozy! Really friendly staff, nice room, comfy bed. A small kitchen with a tv and stuff if you want to cook (we did). Fast Wi-Fi, didn't reach our room with full strength but was better than most anyways! Really recommend it!

Stayed overnight. Room is basic and bed overly soft. Very nice hosts and public bar area. Dinner only available on Thurs to Saturdays so take your own food at other times. There is an adequate shared kitchenette and dining / TV viewing room available. Best placed accommodation for the Hokatika Gorge or for fly fishing in local rivers.

Stayed here for 1 night with my partner on the way to Franz Jospef glacier. Been travelling all day by the time we got there and as soon as we walked in we had a really warm welcome. The owner is a real character, funny, informative and couldn't do enough for us. Room was small but clean, comfortable, free wi-fi and there was a nice little kitchen and TV area we could use free tea/coffee and toast and jam in the morning or there is a restaurant on site. Showers were really clean and really good. The bar was great, really good prices and free pool table. Set in a beautiful valley 10 minutes from Hokitika, this place is the heart and soul of the valley. I will remember this place for a very long time, for all the right reasons and can't recommend it highly enough. Kind of gutted we couldn't stay another night, excellent value for money.
Thanks for a great night and a great stay
Phil & Anna

We were welcomed warmly by the owner Grenville who made us feel at home and was fun to talk with. It was a very peaceful setting in a farming environment with chickens, horses and cattle. Cats and puppy were friendly but not always around which was nice. Room, bathrooms, kitchen/living area and pub area were all clean and well maintained. Garden view from the bedroom window was pretty and smelled lovely too. Kitchen was a little on the small side so cooking large meals wouldn't be possible but pizzas from the pub were tasty so it wasn't an issue for us. Free toast and tea/coffee/hot chocolate in the mornings also justifies eating in the pub the night before.

Tucked away in the country they open a little latter than many places so we rung them and told them when we would arrive and he said he would open up for us, some 2 hours before normal opening time. We arrived, and sure enough he was opening for us as we arrived. Too early to try their famous foods but we did have a few drinks and a great yarn over a few games of (free) pool on a superb table. We left 2 hours later very content and after having a good look throughout the place. Awesome place and a must for those exploring the area.
