Alterations and Additions to Hokitika’s Beachfront Hotel are now completed. An existing public bar and gaming area was stripped out and rebuilt into 11 new budget rooms and a small function room. An adjoining newly acquired building was re-purposed from a bank into a new reception and manager’s office. A new lobby was built from the reception, linking it to the existing Ocean View wing, existing restaurant, and the new budget rooms.
The completed project gives the Hotel a long overdue presence on Revell Street and a coherent internal circulation path between all parts of the Hotel that were previously disjointed. Staff facilities and guest laundry were also upgraded as part of the project.
