Teichelmann's Hokitika Bed and Breakfast
Heritage Accommodation in Hokitika, New Zealand.
From the 1860's gold rush to the present day, Hokitika, on the West Coast of the Southern Alps, has exuded a true pioneering spirit which you can still experience in the generous hospitality you'll find at Teichelmann's Hokitika Bed & Breakfast. Your kiwi hosts, Frances and Brian are proud to offer friendly, informal hospitality in the comfort of our warm and inviting character bed and breakfast home.
Our unique historic accommodation is in the heart of the Hokitika heritage area, opposite the Hokitika Museum and a few short steps to cafes, restaurants, gold and greenstone (pounamu) carvers and galleries.
