Teichelmann Accounts



We totally and absolutely recommend Teichelmanns. Hands down the best place to rest your weary bones after riding the bike trails. Sumptuous surroundings provided by gracious hosts, and beautifully prepared breakfasts each morning.
Fabulous hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home.
Best B&B ever! Francis and Brian are both amazing hosts, couldn’t quite fit them in our suitcase to take them home with us unfortunately. Beautiful room, amazing food and fantastic location. 100% recommend this place.
What fabulous hosts and accommodation. We arrived extremely wet and cold at Teichelmanns B&B after a long day on the trail in testing weather conditions and Frances was our fairy godmother drying all our gear whilst we had hot showers and warmed up. Gorgeous warm rooms and breakfast and packed lunch were both superb. Highly recommend and wish them both all the very best for their future, your kindness was sooo appreciated, many thanks, Anne & Bruce
Brilliant B&B in perfect location. Great welcoming hosts…great rooms…happy to make pots and pots of tea and smashing breakfast too! Highly recommend staying here if you’re in Hokitika.
