We spent a night in the Station House Motel and were impressed with how charming the place felt. Very cosy, green and colourful garden with a large room, kitchen, shower and toilet, for a very reasonable price. Quiet and lovely place, good for taking a relaxing break.

We stayed in one of the two guest houses and found it to be very clean, with two outside porches. We received wonderful recommendations from Slyvie and Darren, eating at the Old School House and Mussel Inn and hiking Wharariki Beach. Both restaurants were excellent and Wharariki Beach is an amazing place. We watched seal pups play in tide pools,...

Beautifully restored 100 year old police station and cottages, really comfortable and a delightful change from the generic motels usually available in a small place. Our hosts were delightful and enjoying living the good life in a picture perfect location. Very handy to Ecotours office as well.
