Stay here at least twice a year and have nothing bad to say, the owners are friendly and remember us everytime, you can order continental breakfasts if you wish and the spa bath is just a nice wee luxury to have.

The room was spacious with a good bed. Clean room with nice little kitchenette. Everything worked well without any surprises. It was a nice change from many of the hotels that charge more but offer very little in comparison. I highly recommend. The owners were kind, helpful with what to do in the area and go the extra mile to... More

Situated on the main highway, just a short walk to CBD. The owners were extremely helpful. We required 2 rooms at short notice, these owners made it possible at very reasonable rates & the units were next door to each other. They are a clean motor inn, with all the normal amenities. Even though there is no play area for... More

We stayed for one night in the cottage with our three children. The cottage is quite old, but well maintained and extremely clean. The kitchen is fully functional, there is large backyard for the kids to play and it is located close to town. The owners were lovely and helpful.

The Helensborough Motor Inn is very 1970ish but so so clean and everything you need. The bed was very comfortable. A Convenience store is close by. Friendly hosts make for a pleasant stay. A good place to use as a base if travelling round South Otago lots of intersting things in area.

The owner was great! He told me about Kaka pt and the lighthouse that was nearby that I would not have known about. It was the most beautiful coast that I have ever seen. The room was nice and very clean. They also gave me complimentary cards for the internet which was a definite plus. Very cool people who run... More
