Stopped here for the night. Really enjoyed the view of the beach and sunset from our room. The room was cozy and clean. And very close to the pancake rocks and blowholes. Had a drink in the lounge and that was very nice.

Situated on the wild West Coast, 30 minutes north of Greymouth and 300m south of the famous Pancake Rocks and Blowholes, the Resort is surrounded by the Paparoa National Park and only metres from the beach. Floor to More ceiling windows in the Waterline Restaurant and Bar mean you can admire the gorgeous sunset while dining on local West Coast food.Few places in the world can offer such comfort so close to the wild action.
