If you are not fussy and just need a bed, you should be able to find something at Greymouth, Hokitika, Frank Josep and probably Fox Glacier as long as you don't arrive late. In between those towns accommodation is very limited, and Fox and Haast only have a handful of lodges each. We got the last double room at the Franz Josef YHA at around 4pm during Easter week last year. I think the variable weather puts people off and a lot of tourists seemed to be on coach tours! It depends on your attitude to risk and how willing you are to drive/ring around.

Weather is always variable. Layer and be prepared for rain. Or you could be lucky with clear skies!
