“Went back and stayed a second time”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Spotlessly clean, we missed the original booking and they let us stay when we arrived the next night; no hassle, polite and friendly. Cleanest motel we've seen in years, the best place we stayed in 2 weeks in New Zealand.

Room Tip: Double room was spacious and comfortable for 3 guys with lots of gear.

Hokitika was just a stopover for me and I found this motel was well rated. Honestly, I did not expect much but this place has everything that i could have asked! Beautiful room, big bathroom with spa bath, comfy bed, cool kitchen unit, beautiful patio and also welcome chocolates. Well, many hotels will have what I listed but there was some difference, the decor felt just too good. Even the exteriors were lighted with coloured lights which felt great. The owners are polite and very good people. I will definitely be staying here again.

Only spent the 1 ngt here but it was a return to a great little gem in Hokitika.

Easy walk into town for dinner.

Lovely room with spa bath to lie back in and relax after several days of walking, chocolates on pillow were a lovely touch too. The bed was really comfortable and being at the back we had no road noise.

The room and complex were clean and tidy inside and out.

The hosts were cheery and hospitable.

Would def. recommend Annabelle's to anyone looking for a great place to stay, we'll be returning!

The Annabelle is a great spot to stay. We stayed here one night while on the road and it provided a great spot to make a meal, have a hot bath, and get a solid night's sleep. The service was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

A random pick from online. And a great pick too! Although a little out of town but nice and peaceful. Lovely rooms. Very sweet hosts and really enjoyed the spa bath!! If on route through again will be staying here... :) very impressed with the west coast hospitality! :)

We stayed here 2 nights. Helpful and friendly hosts. Lovely room with spa bath and private deck. Chocolates on the pillow and fresh flowers on the table added a nice touch. The bed was very comfortable and the room cosy and quiet. Everything was very clean and tidy both inside and outside.
It was an easy walk to the town centre where we made use of the free drinks vouchers for Stumpers, a popular local bar and restaurant, supplied in the motel room brochure.
This is not the first time we have stayed at this motel and would recommend it to anyone.

Very comfortable, clean, roomy and unpretentious. Manager most helpful had a very pleasant relaxed stay. Would return anytime with pleasure. Local fish and chips from river front were great.
Stumpers restaurant was a real find. Great service and food.

Room Tip: Worth the extra for spa room
