We had planned to camp at Curio Bay for one last outing before school starting. The weather was lousy so we were thrilled to find that there was a reasonably priced holiday house available not far away. The house is well appointed with comfortable beds, a cozy fire, extra heating, well equipped kitchen, and hot shower. Apparently there is landscaping... More

Having been driving around New Zealand for nearly a month we had our fair share of pretty average nondescript motor parks. Slow point was like a breath of fresh air! Rural setting with sheep and goats on your doorstep, peaceful surrounds. Limited powered sites but plenty of other accommodation options. Great kitchen and bathroom facilities, all capped off by lovely... More

Visited Slope Point on June 1st and stayed at the backpackers. The rooms are warm and self contained. Common room with fun games and all the essentials you need to have a good time. Perfect location under the starry skies. The gravel road leading up to it isn't too bad and just adds to the charm. Warm and welcoming hosts.Would... More

Slope Point backpackers feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but that is part of its charm. It is very quiet at night, and we had an amazing sleep. Booked the platinum room (self-contained) which looked more like a hotel than a hostel (only downside would be that it's a shower rather than a bath, but the suite... More

Definitely good value for money. We stayed in a double room and were surprised that more people were not here. We were made to feel at home. Bathroom and toilets were nice and modern. Kitchen was modern and had comfy seats and recliners to relax. Simple things such as tea, coffee, salt and pepper were provided. We did get woken... More

We had the most wonderful nights sleep in this beautifully situated backpackers. The location is remote, just what we love. The accommodation is of a very high standard. We stayed in the Silver room, comfy beds, clean ensuite and with our own kitchen facilities and all for $30 each for the night. Perfect. You do need your own transport to... More

We spent two nights in the Slope Point Backpackers. It was a great experience. We booked the green room and it was perfect. All was clean and we had all the items that we need two cook. The familiy was so nice and hospitable and her daugther showed us the different animals that they have.
