  • "Hokitika in the wet"

    We originally booked a standard room; on arrival Adele and Brian thought we would be more comfortable in a superior room so gave us a choice to upgrade. We were glad we did as we had a very comfortable stay despite the heavy rain. The spa pool was good and relaxing. Whilst we were there new TVs were put in the rooms. Just a short walk and we were on the beach - no good for swimming though - the site has a swimming pool.

  • "Clean and a Good Value"

    Room was large and clean. The hosts were nice and helpful -- even provided me with laundry detergent. TV was small and an old tube-type but I really wasn't there to watch it. I would certainly consider staying here again.

  • "Great family accommodation"

    We rented a 2 bedroom cottage and found it very clean, spacious, well-equipped and quiet. The hosts were friendly and quick to provide information on the town and area. The park itself is well located near the beach, walking distance to shops and very close to the glowworms. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "Clean and tidy, helpful hosts"

    The room we stayed in hadn't been updated yet (with a correspondingly lower rate), but that was no problem with us. The room was very clean and tidy and met all our needs. Very quiet location, with very helpful hosts who kindly lent us a torch so we could view the nearby glow worms.

  • "Excellent place to stay."

    Two friends and I went to Hokitika for few days to do day-tramps in the area. The little cottage we had at 252 Beachside Motels & Holiday Park was perfect for us. It was VERY clean and comfortable and the hosts Brian and Adele most welcoming and very helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending it highly.

  • "Welcome return."

    Having stayed at Beachside before with a motorhome we had no hesitation to book a self contained cabin for a return visit. The usual warm friendly welcome was found and although some of the fittings in the unit were out-dated they were very clean and functional. Would be more than happy to come back.

  • "Friendly to the Max!"

    It's a "holiday park," not The Ritz. But the service just as well could be from The Ritz.

    Exceedingly friendly and helpful.

    Very comfortable and clean rooms.

    Well worth the money. I've paid twice as much for less.

  • "Good place with friendly and helpful hosts"

    This is the second time we have stayed at 252 Beachside. The rooms we had were spacious allowing 2 adults and 3 teens plenty of room; It's very handy to the beach and the glow worm cave; and we enjoyed the spa this time around (we used the pool on our last visit which was equally as good). Thanks :-)

    Good value for money, clean, well equipped and great for a wild and rainy night in Hokitika. Enough room for our family party.
