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.

Great place to stay and as a previous reviewer said they set the bar high. The cottages are very well kitted out for self catering in and spotlessly clean. There is even a washing machine in the bathroom! It is a short walk into town if you want to eat out otherwise go to the beach. The location is very quiet and easily accessible from SH6. I would highly recommend this location of you are doing a self drive up or down the west coast.

Moteliers take note - Amberlea Cottages sets the bar very high. These cottages are just so comfortable, and spotlessly clean and tidy. Great kitchen and living area, comfy beds. Hokitika itself is such an interesting place to visit, and the cottages are the perfect base.

Fantastic cottages and would highly recommend staying here if in Hokitika. Great hosts & 2 bedroom cottage was spotlessly clean & very warm. Appreciated washing machine & dryer given we have been on a west coast road trip. Also suggest trying whitebait sandwich at Cafe 39 !!

I can’t rate this place enough. It’s immaculately presented. Has everything you could possibly need during your stay. We only booked one night on the advice that there was nothing to do in Hokitika. I wish we had ignored that advice and stayed longer. This place is a quaint little town with a stunning beach and spectacular sunset. Views to the mountains and within driving distance of Arthur’s pass. Hokitika gorge and treetop walkways to mention only a few. We didn’t get to do much having only booked one night. Don’t make the mistake if you come here of limiting your stay. You could easily fill two to three full days. Oh and Amberley cottage owners run a B&B which is just beautifully maintained. I would highly recommend this as a stop on any South Island tour.

We had spent the previous two nights in a room at a very sub standard motel which was more expensive than Amberlea Cottage. I have to admit to welling up when we arrived here. We were blown away. It’s lovely. Two large bedrooms, large living room, kitchen diner and large bathroom which also housed a washing machine. The well equipped kitchen included a Fisher and Pykel (spelling?) dish drawer. A microwave, full sized cooker and a large fridge/freezer. Essential if you plan any self catering. There was a wonderful friendly welcome by the owners. Entry is by code so no need to even return a key. The property, one of four identical is almost brand new and so reasonably priced. I can’t find the words to praise accommodation enough.

My daughter and I stayed in one of the cottages for two nights in August. Our cottage was spotlessly clean with all the amenities you would expect. The bathroom included a washing machine and this was particularly useful because we had been travelling for a week. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was an unexpected bonus as was rhe clothes rack. We couldn't fault the facilities and enjoyed our stay immensely. Comfortable beds as well.

Always a great place to stay, and take in the fabulous location of Hokitika, every thing is supplied in the cottages, just stock up with your own food. Hosts are always helpful and can point out the best local activities to visit.

Absolutely perfect accommodation. Very clean, quiet little cottage. Well appointed with everything you need Fridge freezer and dishwasher. Plenty of cuterly and plates and cooking utensils. A washing machine and even washing powder and pegs are just thoughtful things that make traveling life a breeze, We enjoyed our stay very much and wouldn't hesitate to come back.
