  • We loved staying at Hokonui - it was a pleasure speaking with Brian - he is truly one of a kind. We were treated with an exceptionally comfortable bed, impressive views and a delicious breakfast to top it all off. This place should not be missed if your passing through Gore...even take a detour so you can stay here! 5

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Hokonui B&B, the views from the lounge and bedroom windows are stunning, the property is maintained at an excellent standard both inside and outside. The location is very quiet, away from the town centre. The room, bed & bathroom were super, breakfast was very nice. 5

  • Shona and Brian were very welcoming, the room was comfortable and the bathroom clean. The house is great, with loads of space and fantastic views. We were able to have dinner there the first night which was also very nice. They also leant my boyfriend golf clubs to go and play at the local course in Gore which was very kind. 5

  • Shona and Brian were superb hosts. Shona was eager to ensure that I experienced the region by making recommendations for the Maple Glenn gardens in Wyndham and the Catlins on the south coast while Ted fished the Mataura River. Brian ran his herding Border Collies on his sheep for my benefit. Breakfast was delicious. We would stay at Hokonui again. 5

  • We decided to try a B&B instead of the sterility of a motel. That was a very good move as from the minute we arrived until we left two days later, the Hokonui B&B was our base in Gore. All facets of the stay were excellent. The reception we received from Shona and Brian was very warm - they were interested in us; the view from our room was amazing; the breakfasts were perfect; even the animals greeted us when we arrived. Please don't pass this B&B up. It is well worth the stay and Southland is a very relaxing place to visit. 5

  • We returned to Hokonui 14.05.09 and this time we had an evening meal with Shona and Brian. Hokonui is one of the best B and B's we have visited. Shona and Brian made us feel so very welcome in their beautiful home. We shall definately return when we travel back to Gore. 5

  • This is one one the best homestays we have ever experienced. My husband is a rail consultant and we travel all over NZ. The hosts Shona and Brian make you feel so welcome. Their beautiful house and grounds are just wonderful. We had the king suite and it was fantastic, so lovely and peaceful. If the cooked breakfast is anything to go by, we would definately have the evening meal next time but unfortunately we arrived very late. Will definately be back and hopefully can stay longer. ***** from the Armstrongs. 5
