A fire station is not the first place one would think to stay while on holiday. However, with the Hokitika Fire Station Boutique Accommodation, Hokitika heritage is combined with a distinctly modern flair.
Originally built in 1866, the Hokitika Fire Station has stood the test of time, even being burned down and rebuilt four times.
Today, it has been lovingly restored as accommodation.
The history of Hokitika’s fire services remain ever present within the iconic brick building, with oodles of firefighting memorabilia and nick-nacks lining the walls and the public areas of the Qualmark five-star deluxe apartments.
With three luxury studios upstairs and a three-bedroom family unit with added kitchen, and accessible apartment downstairs – each of the five apartments have been named after a fire chief who once led the Hokitika Fire Brigade.
Each apartment combines space, a modern en-suite bathroom and either a kitchenette or full kitchen.
The larger Chief Henshaw room has three beautifully kept bedrooms, dining area, full kitchen and living area. The ground floor Chief Millard apartment has full disabled access, a king-sized bed with additional queen size sofa bed with space for up to four guests.
History, beautifully kept apartments, décor, and five stars. What more could you possibly want from your stay in Hokitika?
“Hokitika Fire Station Apartments is also the only accommodation located in the Hokitika CBD to be given a Qualmark five-star rating,” says owner Kerry Jeffs.

When it come to quality hotels in the Garden City, it’s not hard to see why The George is at the top of the list.
Now that spring has arrived, it’s time to consider the plethora of activities available at this time of year. What better place to book your Christmas function when so much thought goes into their functions and events?
Every aspect of The George is quality. Take for instance their high teas, which are popular for family and friend gatherings. Cup and Show Week wouldn’t be the same without a flute of Nautilus bubbles in hand or perhaps a sumptuous breakfast to start the day at 50 Bistro. Then we come, of course, to the accommodation, where all one’s needs are met when a romantic night away or needing to stay in the inner city is on the cards.
The George is well known for its service and quality on all levels but nothing is more relevant than the standards at Christchurch’s number one fine dining experience, Pescatore. This Christmas, Pescatore is offering a five-course degustation menu for group dining up to 40 guests for the perfect pre-Christmas celebration. If it’s a larger corporate Christmas occasion you are after, there’s a range of recently refreshed event spaces and specially crafted pre-Christmas menus in either buffet or set menu style.
With a range of special functions occurring there is always a reason to savour the pleasure of fine dining whether it’s that important business meeting, a discreet dinner with a client or a romantic couple’s night out.
Located at 50 Park Terrace opposite the beautiful North Hagley Park, The George embodies everything you can dream of in a luxury hotel.
