The Pioneer Hotel - Budget Accommodation with "Beers, Beds & Bar Meals"

Tucked away on it's "own little corner of the world", with the rugged beauty of the Hokitika River a few steps away and on a crisp clear day unsurpassed views of the majestic Southern Alps and Mount Cook, sits The Pioneer Hotel - Hokitika's true "West Coast Pub".

Being first registered in 1866, The Pioneer Hotel is one of the oldest Pubs still in operation in Hokitika. Your hosts Deb and John Englefield are passionate about retaining the charm and warmth of old-fashioned hospitality and are proud to be known by the locals, as a true example of a "good old West Coast Pub"

With the modernised Bars and Restaurants 5 minutes walk away, the Pub is a perfect alternative to relax and "make yourself at home"

At The Pioneer Hotel, you will not be a stranger for long. The friendly locals enjoy welcoming people into "their" Pub with lots of conversation and gentle banter - you may even be challenged to a game of pool or to sing on the karaoke! It wont be long before you too will feel like a "Coaster".

Whilst having the facilities of modern bars, "The Pioneer" retains the uniqueness of old-fashioned warmth and hospitality. Your time spent at The Pioneer Hotel will be an experience in itself, which will only enhance your journey and leave pleasant memories.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hokitika's true "West Coast Pub" on its own little corner of the world.

Deb and John
