#2 of 26 Speciality lodging in Hokitika
Travellers' Choice
Nestled in native bush, on a ridge top, Rimu Lodge gazes out across the Hokitika River, across farmland to the mountains beyond. You will be immediately struck by the absolute silence and the sheer majesty of the surroundings where you can truly relax and take in the splendour of native New Zealand bush, snow clad mountains and the Hokitika River running through fertile farmlands. Rimu Lodge is this place. Four individually styled en-suite rooms (two ground floor, two first floor), all taking maximum advantage of the wonderful views.

The moment we arrived at Rimu Lodge we knew we were in for a special experience. Sue-Ellen made sure we felt welcomed right from the start and proved to be an excellent and experienced host. The lodge itself is wonderfully appointed and extremely comfortable. The fireplace in the great room is a wonderful backdrop to the expansive views out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. . The rooms are filled with small touches to make any visitor feel right at home, including homemade treats, and fine locally made soaps, shampoo, and conditioners. From the lodge to the area's surrounding attractions is a short drive (10 minutes to Hokitiku, 20 minutes to Hokitiku Gorge). Sue-Ellen made sure we were equipped with maps and umbrellas before we ventured out for a day of exploring. Rimu Lodge is a definite on a South Island tour and offers the finest in Kiwi hospitality.

We were two couples from Hamilton having a 3 day weekend away. Sue-Ellen was a fabulous host from the moment we arrived, her attention to deal was exceptional. The facilities were beautiful with tasteful decor and the most amazing views down over the valley. The beds were like sleeping in clouds, so warm and comfortable. Thank you Sue-Ellen for making sure every detail was perfect during our stay, starting with the most delicious breakfast, organising transport back from the local Hotel after dinner through to finishing the day off with a complimentary whiskey or port and then had the beds turned down and chocolates on the pillows. Our whole stay was fabulous, and we all highly recommend it… we will be back!

We had a lovely few days at Rimu Lodge. Sue-Ellen is a warm and welcoming host who understands what travellers are looking for. Well appointed, spacious rooms, with quality linens and toiletries with additional personal touches made for a relaxing stay. The guests' living room is a great place to have a glass of wine in front of the fire, a quiet read or a chat with other guests. Breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented Sue-Ellen is very knowledgeable about the area and will give you lots of helpful hints about what to see and do. Highly recommended.

From the moment we drove in we were impressed and made to feel welcome and special. We were told of activities in and around Hokitika. Shown to the ‘Tui” room we were immediately impressed with the décor before stepping out onto the large deck overlooking the valley and river. After a great night’s sleep in the most comfortable bed, we headed into breakfast that would rival the best we have enjoyed. Sue-ellen is the ultimate hostess with many little extras and an eye for detail. I cannot rate Rimu Lodge highly enough so if you come to Hokitika you will be in for a treat.
