We stayed 2 nights in the backpackers lodge. Room was comfortable, with bedding and towels supplied. Kitchen was large and very well equipped and all very clean. The owners were very helpful and knowledgable about walks in the area - we appreciated the tip to spend a night at Blue Lake Hut. We made use of the lockers and 'trampers... More

Nothing fancy but an excellent kitchen, well stocked. Clean and comfortable group setting bunk beds. Friendly staff. It was the perfect spot for the four of us to stay. Reasonable prices. We enjoyed our stay.

I stayed with my family in a dorm room in the backpackers lodge. We are a family of five and had a six bed dorm room to ourselves. The lodge was clean and comfortable. The toilets and showers were clean and there was plenty of hot water. The communal kitchen was large and well-equipped. Next to the kitchen was a... More

Spent one night recently, with my partner in one of the Log Cabin style Studios. We were very impressed with comfort, cleanliness, the rates, and the quiet. Met Richard the owner, very friendly, he had no hesitation, in showing me around some of the other larger units available. ( for future reference!) There is also a good backpackers' facility...Dorms, a... More

Clean, accessible, relaxed. Clean and large kitchen. Good for stopover. When we stopped over there was only another room booked, so we had the whole place to ourselves pretty much. Lake is beautiful, but not a lot of food options in area, bear that in mind when traveling here. Two restaurants. Do recommend a visit though, there are lots of... More

Stayed in the backpackers lodge and was very impressed. Was greeted and shown around by a very nice staff member. The room was really nice with an awesome view of the mountains. The kitchen is well equipped, and the shower was good and hot. I was impressed with how clean and tidy every part of the lodge was. The birdsong... More

We stayed in the backpackers' section. The facilities were good, our room was nice and the bathrooms were clean. Unfortunately, the manager was incredibly rude and unfriendly! When we arrived, we had to pay on arrival and therefore had to transfer money from one account to another but had no internet reception. I tried to explain this to the manager... More

We rented a studio-style "log cabin" unit at the end of a group of four units. It met all the basic requirements: regularly serviced; good king-size bed with firm mattress; clean well-lit bathroom with good shower; fairly basic kitchen facilities: pots and pans but only a small hotplate, so you wouldn't be cooking elaborate meals here. The nights were surprisingly... More

Taking into account the regular price of this room, and its location, my rating of "very good" captures the fact that the room exceeded expectations. For a similar price, other motels tend to be a bit dated and 'ordinary' whereas the Travers-Sabine is noteworthy for its spacious and open floor plan, its open-timber construction and high ceilings, self-catering option, and...
