We stayed in Reefton for one night to do the gold mining tour. I recommend both the tour and the accommodation to anybody. Our small apartment was perfect and clean. The shop was around the corner and the baker up the street. We went to see the old miners living in their huts and there was a lovely atmosphere in... More

We finally stayed at the Lantern Court Motel in Reefton. I say finally as our initial booking the week before was cancelled by us because of a cyclone travelling through NZ and causing havoc on the roads with many roads being impassable. Having rang the Lantern Court to cancel at late notice (the day before our booking) they confirmed that... More

We stayed in the newer rooms @ the Lantern Court Motel for a single night, these rooms were well appointed and warm in the cold Reefton weather. The owner is friendly and very helpful, and the internet access was good/fast and simple to use.

We stayed for one night in Reefton. It is a quiet but interesting place and I wish we'd had more time there. The hotel was comfortable and reasonably priced. Very traditional. The area round Reefton has many places to see but we just didn't have time.

Reefton may not be on the 'must-visit' list of most visitors.So it took us seven trips to come here but it's definitely worth it. Endless tramping option in the area and a nice little town that has all you need. Well, more dinner options in town would be nice. Lantern Court Motel is an excellent base for your stay, absolutely... More

What a fabulous night we enjoyed here at this hotel. We were provided with the two bedroom apartment upstairs with a full balcony. The apartment was lovely and well appointed. Sitting outside on the balcony early evening was especially nice hearing the stream, it was most relaxing. The staff member was so lovely and nothing was a problem. Would highly... More

This place is a real gem! The staff was super friendly and rooms clean and comfortable. The motel has a quaint, mid-century feel. We were driving across the South island and found Reefton to be the perfect place for a break. The manager showed us around the property as well as suggesting where to get a bite to eat. She... More

Reasonable prices. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean, quiet and comfortable room. Reefton is a quaint little town and the scenery and bushwalks between Reefton and Lewis Pass are great. If you're planning to arrive late, be aware that the cafes and pubs can close fairly early.

The staff were helpful and friendly, our 4 star two bedroom unit (number 7) was comfortable and well-equipped, but the bedrooms were too small for our liking. We stayed there as part of a motorcycle trip to the South Island and were delighted to be offered space in the garage to store our motorbikes overnight. The roads in and out... More
