Clean, comfy and friendly

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Mar 2024via mobile
Our room was big, clean, comfy and just what we were hoping for after a long day travelling. Staff were friendly and gave us a great suggestion for dinner. We were in a quiet street away from the Main Street but only 1 minute in the car or 10 minute walk. Took the opportunity to have a yummy home made Brekky before our next day on the road. Highly recommend.

Was going to stay here until the owner decided to abuse me online over a difference in pricing
I found a nice place for $40.00 better so we stayed there. This person is not a good advertisement for the Motel industry and I would think twice about it.

This person has never stayed at Stopforths and falsely claimed they could book the room $40 cheaper than the rate I set.

Easy to find :a stroll from town for jade shops etc. Decent room: easy parking on site. Most people in Hokitika are on way somewhere else: we were too but this was fine for an overnight stop in motel type place

Room tip: You will need a rain coat: it rains a lot in Hokitika

Totally recommend the Stopsforth Hotel!
The pristine units could not be cleaner, so well appointed or more comfortable!
We are thrilled to be here in this fabulous town at this incredible “motel”!!
Originally had the night booked in Greymouth since we take The Alpine Express tomorrow at 200pm.
We were told Hokitika is “the place to be” and they were SO right!
After a bit of a delay with the taxi - we met with John who checked us in.
He is a pure delight, showing us on the map where to go and what to do!
What a fantastic welcome we received in a place that’s so convenient to town.
We feel so comfortable here with a fabulous hot tub!!
As well you get a fridge, microwave , utensils etc.
to help you feel more at home!!
Being mid trip we are so grateful for all these conveniences!
Thank you again John and everyone else
who made this hotel so perfect!!
Our trip to New Zealand has been stellar!!

Room tip: Convenient in every way

Stayed at a handful of motels on our trip to NZ and this was the pick of the bunch. Nice sized room with a good large bed and nice pillows (slept well). The shower had good water pressure and the bathroom, as well as the room, was very clean.

Room had a stove top and related things if you wanted to cook (we did not). Thought the milo was a nice touch and enjoyed that in the morning. Owner is a nice fellow who was helpful with things to do in and around Hokitika.
