Functional hotel in an amazing location

Posted 23-Dec-2016
Pros: Location
Cons: I thought it was too expensive.
Location: This is the best part. Centrally located, walking and exploring the area was easy.
Punakaiki is located in a breathtaking nature. Walking distance to the beach, Pancake rocks and blowholes. Has great views (certain rooms) and a guest laundry. The room itself is very plain but functional with a kitchenette.

Amazing view to the west coast.

Posted 23-Dec-2016
Hotel is just a minute walk away to the beach. Very quiet place and within 10 minutes walkway you can see the pancake rocks and blowholes. If you have some time. Explore the surroundings with a bike.

Hotel in Strandnähe

Posted 12-Dec-2016
Wenige Minuten vom Hotel entfernt befinden sich die wunderschönen Pancake Rocks. Nachts wurden wir von einen Feueralarm (zum Glück ein Fehlalarm) aus dem Schlaf gerissen. Dem Hotelpersonal gelang es allerdings erst nach über 30 Minuten den Alarm abzustellen. Auf Nachfrage erfuhren wir das dieser Fehlalarm 3-4 mal pro Monat vom gleichen Zimmer ausgelöst wird.

Outstanding location by the sea

Posted 16-Oct-2016
We stayed in a seaview room with a balcony, the bed was very comfortable and the shower was good. The restaurant prices were expensive so we didn't eat there. There's plenty of car parking. The beach is adjacent and is magnificent. The pancake rocks and a great cafe are a 5 min walk away.

Great location, lovely sea and sunset

Posted 13-Sep-2016 on Hotels
We stayed in Punakaiki for 1 night on our 5 week trip around NZ in August 2016 (winter). We were travelling as a family with young child and ended up booking 2 adjoining rooms for ease. Rooms are clean, good size with fantastic sea views and sunset, right on the beach. There isn't a lot of alternate choice in Punakaiki for accommodation or to eat, but don't let that put you off the hotel is great.

Windows have moulds all over and room is filled with loud noise when flushing toilet or while showering. Room is otherwise ok.

Nice place but needs to work on pest control!!

Posted 30-Aug-2016 on Wotif
Punakaiki is not flooded with accommodation so this really is the only options. The location is actually amazing, beach front and 2 minute walk from the pancake rocks & blowholes. The place is modern and professional but the biggest let down was when we found a small cockroach in the bathroom and later on a spider in the shower!! I mean, come on, even a motel isn't that bad.
