I have travelled the world and every corner of our beautiful country .. I've never come across a more rude and selfish old man like this proprietor. Upon arrival he expressed his displeasure at being busy at "his age" The rooms were outdated and multiple items missing. We stayed during the night of the Kaikoura earthquakes, we were up that...

Upon arrival the host expressed unhappiness in being busy; he didn't like that he had to work. The quality of everything in the unit was very poor. From the blunt serrated knife to the awquard bathroom layout the place was a bad set back in time and quality. After spending a turmultuous night communicating with effected family members of the...

Was a short stay, but the lady that looked after us was very helpful and accommodating. The unit itself could use a bit of an update, but overall it was clean and had all we needed. Plenty of heating and a beautiful view over the beach. A lovely place to stay for a trip away :)

That's where it finished. The view was spectacular. Where do we begin , the worst bed we have slept in 10 days traveling, no pressure in the shower, after one person showered the second person had Luke warm shower. The most uncomfortable couch. This was the highest price paid so far in the trip $120.00 and the most basic set...

The stay itself was nice. But we had called ahead of time to tell them we would be coming in late at night, like around 930 pm, and they said fine. We arrived at 10 pm, and the lady was yelling at us that we weren't going to be staying at the motel and that we were making a lot...

We received a warm welcome and the staff were very helpful and informative . The room was tidy and comfortable. The beach and shop and restaurants was in walking distance . The environment was peaceful and relaxing and adequate sea views enhanced our stay.

An older style motel but well kept and very comfortable. We had a large room with fantastic sea view. The owner Bruce was very helpful with information about what to do and see in the Catlins. Wi fi a bit slow, but hey who goes on holiday to surf the net? The place is up for sale but let's hope...

The motel is for sale and it is very dated but adequate, The staff is helpful. Wi-fi was sketchy but there was a booster in the room. View of the water is outstanding and the beast feature of this motel.

This was a beautiful location located very close to the water and I believe most rooms do have a view. If you're looking for a serene location to stay while checking out the lighthouse, penguins and spending time on the beach this is perfect. There's just one restaurant on the main boulevard so bringing your own food and beverages from...
