We managed to get to Hokitika via The Lewis Pass, hoping to reach Franz Joseph. It was not to be as the road was closed due to the torrential rain. However, we had a lovely time in Hokitika mainly as our hosts Francis and Brian were incredible. We stayed in the garden room, which had a very comfortable bed and a huge en-suite with a spa bath, plus a lovely sunny deck. Breakfast was always fresh fruit, yogurt and muesli plus toast, juice and then whatever eggs you wished for. Tea and coffee are in plentiful supply with cake when you return each afternoon. Helpful advice is given on what to do and we were even dropped off by Brian for a particular walk. We were invited to the local quiz night, although I am not sure about our contribution!
We unfortunately stayed only one night at this wonderful place which has 6 wonderful rooms equipped with queen or kingsized beds, an own bathroom and the possibility to help yourself out with a tea or coffee. The rooms in this historic house are lovingly furnished. We had a very warm welcome from our hosts Frances and Brian. Thank you very much for your good recommends and your kindness. Definetely a Place to stay again in the future. Thank you.
Cannot recommend enough a trip to Hokitika, where a stay at Teichelmann’s B&B is well advised. My wife and I spent the night here on the second night of our 10-day trip around the South Island — our honeymoon trip, which Frances and Brian were sure to make special for us. We stayed in the detached, cozy cottage, which was lovely with a nice bathroom. Hokitika is so charming. Lots of shops and places to eat. We recommend the Kitchen immediately next door for some terrific food (huge portions) and a warm, jovial atmosphere. And plenty of great things to see and do, including taking in the sunset, visiting the glow worm dells and exploring Hokitika Gorge and the Treetop Walkway on the way out of town ... all of which we were able to do in less than 24 hours. But I’d be…
Enjoyed a quick 1 night stay at Teichelmann’s B&B. We stayed in the cottage which was very clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. Breakfast was delicious and the company of the other guests at the table was lovely- as well as the hosts, Francis and Brian!
A fabulous B& B. We stayed in the Garden Suite and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room was beautifully styled and I loved Brian's artwork as seen from the bathroom window! The breakfast was outstanding with delicious homemade produce. Frances and Brian are the epitome New Zealand B& B owners.
