The hotel was good. It was clean. It was quiet... but that was because NO ONE was there. Easy to find... being the only hotel in the city you really can't miss it. We had to pay for WIFI but we got a discount... I mean we were the only ones there so why not, right? The hotel served its... More

After being stranded for the night due to the Haast Pass closure, we were waiting the next morning for the next update due out at 12pm. We checked out promptly at 10 as requested, and were simply waiting in the common area using the wifi (24hr wifi we paid for). At 11:30 we were rudely told by the owner that... More

We arrived in a miserable rain storm and were definitely ready to stop for the night when we arrived in Haast. We were delighted there was a room available in our price range and with free Wifi (limited period of time; can pay for more). As we've learned is common practice in NZ, we were asked what kind of milk... More

A nice clean accommodation in haast which is like in middle of nowhere.. haast is small town without proper telephone network.. The motels were clean n tidy.. Our room had a very small kitchen which could only fit 1 at a time.. rooms were spacious.. Not much amenities. just a nice place to sleep on a long road trip..

There is nothing really wrong with the accommodation. It is clean and comfortable and adequate. The furnishings and the bathrooms are a little dated but then this is a motel and not a hotel. I can't comment on value-for-money as the cost of my stay here was included as part of a package. So, a quietly located motel, a short... More

You haven't got a lot of choice when it comes to accommodation in the small township of Haast and we were stuck there for one night because we didn't want to negotiate Haast Pass in the dark. The receptionist was very friendly and checked us in quickly. The accommodation itself was basic and OK. But we paid 20 dollars for... More

Check in very helpful especially as they had not received the booking from Booking.com that we made three months ago, luckily there was a room available. Large room with covered terrace outside door with two chairs on overlooking garden and car parking opposite. Fly screens on window as sand flies can be a problem, large fridge, microwave, double hob, kettle,... More

Plenty of room, a very comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. Good laundry facilities and very helpful staff. Nice to be able to sit outside the unit and enjoy a drink. A small food store was close by with good range of food and wine. also the motel carried some emergency items
