We were in Hoki for the weekend to run the Sth Island ultra, my husband, myself and our friend (support crew). We'd booked the 2 bed unit at Stopforths and Sonya could not have done more to help us. It was a very wet weekend and she happily obliged with ALL our requests - extra towels, Bunnings umbrella, late check out etc. She was brilliant! And the unit itself was everything we needed, warm, dry and relaxing after being out on the trails for hours in the wet. We would LOVE to stay here again when over that way, and will definitely recommend to everyone we know - thanks Sonya, you made our weekend, more than you probably realised.
Had a good two night stay here on our travels. Hokitika turned out to be a surprisingly great place, helped in part by Stopforths. The owners are extremely friendly and grave great recommendations on our arrival. The rooms are quite spacious and the beds are really night, probably the best sleep on the trip. Would definitely return if we are down that way again.
We only stayed one night as we passed through on our Sth Island trip. The owners are so lovely and helpful with both the local area and information/advice on our next stop further on our trip, the bed was sooo comfortable we wanted to stay another night. Very clean and well equipped, Netflix was a bonus!. Spacious and welcoming, the fresh full cream local milk ws a real treat!! We can't recommend this place enough if you are travelling through Hokitika. Of all the places we stayed on our Sth Island adventure (some 5 star accomodation included) we rated this the highest. we will be back
We stayed 2 nights. Very clean and comfortable room. Had absolutely everything we needed. Bed super comfy. The best shampoo & conditioner ever!! Host was really welcoming and knowledgeable. Central to everything. Would definitely stay here again.
Fantastic room, clean and comfortable. Great bed. Friendly owners we couldn't rate this place high enough 🙂 . Close to town centre, but still very quiet. Very helpful with information on the local area. John and Moana
we arrived here mid afternoon, and it turns out the owner's sister lives not far from where we live (only in NZ!!), the room was lovely and clean, with a great shower.. also the bed was soooo comfortable. excellent service and the owner was super friendly and helpful.
Our Moa Tour was welcomed with a great chat about the history of Stopforth. Very friendly owners. Our room was very clean, well aired and spacious, with an extremely comfortable bed....so much so, that we asked what type it was. Sensible room layout for easy access to everything. Decent sized shower with plenty of good towels. Thanks for the wonderful stay.
We stayed 2 nights during a tour of the South Island. Picked here due to the reviews & they are very accurate. Great place to stay - just a short walk out of the town centre. Really clean & grey studios. The Smart TV with access to Netflix & more was a real bonus. Really friendly & helpful reception.
Well my wife and I have just completed quite a long trip down the west coast and then onto more of the south we decided not to book anywhere and just follow our noses, we came across the Stopforths Motel, what a welcoming reception we got, spotlessly clean room that had everything we needed, it ended up being the most comfortable stop of all the places we stayed at on our trip, we will be back soon. Thanks Stopforths. Paddy and Bev.
Every aspect of the stay was outstanding The unit I slept in was very clean and tidy The special part of my stay were the owners They were so friendly and accomodating It deserves a 10 Perfectly located with a 5 minute walk to shops, bars and cafe
