getting to Hopewell is a mission; a 2 hour winding drive from the turn off or a water taxi, but it is so worth it. We visited in early 07 , they'd just opened a new kitchen which is everything you'd need, together with an adjacent comfy lounge. The room was also perfect. They took us out collecting mussels and the whole hostel gorged itself on the results (all free too!). You can kayak, cycle, fish and walk, or just relax (mind the sandflies though). Very friendly owners (coffee and cake on arrival!) and totally deserving of their continued BBH top ratings. book ahead though.

Stayed 4 days, but wanted to stay forever. Mike and Lynley (the hosts) are so friendly and will help you with everything. Free mussels and oysters. Delicious seafood-pizza and all-you-can-eat sunday brunch with Mike's famous pancakes! The double-en-suites have a brilliant view over the sound. Everybody should go there!
