Hokitika, West Coast
Boutique Bed & Breakfast, Hokitika
Nestled in native bush on a ridge top Rimu Lodge gazes out across the Hokitika river valley and farmland to the mountains of the Southern Alps. Enjoy absolute quiet and expansive views from this luxury West Coast bed and breakfast. Four individually designed ensuite guest rooms take maximum advantage of the views. Spacious decks and indoor-outdoor living areas invite relaxation in the midst of a busy holiday.
The lodge is on the edge of Hokitika township so just a 10 minute drive to the centre, restaurants and shops. Enjoy browsing in Hokitika’s greenstone and jewellery shops, explore some of the excellent local hikes and beautiful riverside walks, visit the Treetop Walkway and cafe or venture south to Franz Joseph Glacier (1hr 40). A good base to stop after crossing the Southern Alps by car or train from Christchurch to Greymouth. Equally perfect to include in your New Zealand South Island honeymoon.
All rooms have large ensuite bathrooms with hairdryers, toiletries, heated towel racks, heated demisting mirrors and robes. All rooms also have flatscreen TVs, central heating and double glazed windows, table and comfortable chairs for your comfort, refrigerator and complimentary tea and coffee facilities. Telephone and free wifi internet facilities are available to guests.

All rooms face north east enjoying the sunrise, with the two ground floor rooms opening onto a large deck to enable guests to enjoy the sunny outdoors and listen to the birdsong in the native bush surrounding the lodge. The first floor (upstairs) rooms have access to the deck from the great room.
