Myself and my partner stayed here for one night in a double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and had lovely decor. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of room for our backpacks. The shower which was powerful and hot was located in a room next to ours so we were practically ensuite. The toilet was... More

My wife and I came across it by pure chance, after a long day driving from Queenstown and just starting to explore the Catlins. As this farmstay is located off the main asphalt roads, it would seem not many tourists are aware of its existence - which is such a shame because this place is - all on its own... More

Great farm based backpackers to explore the Catlins area. Pet the calfs and sheeps and relax in the pleasant common room. Close to the petrified forest of Curio Bay and the Catlins forest park for walks.

Slope point Backpackers is sited on a large working sheep farm. Justine, the owner and her 3 little girls are very charming with a great Kiwi sense of humor. My husband and I stayed in a private double with ensuite that was recently renovated and a great facility for the price. The Catlins are very special with lots of wildlife... More

My wife, baby, and I stayed at Slope Point Backpackers during our tour of the South Island in Feb. 2013. The lodging was great and the price reasonable. There were many choices of rooms/options, including camping with a range of price points depending on the facilities and how nice the rooms were. Many rooms are recently built/renovated, so it was...

The place is on the same road leading to Slope Point and easy to be found. Very friendly host. We stayed in a 'gold room' which is beautiful and very cozy. The bathroom and toilet are separated and I would say they have the same quality as you'll find in a 4 star hotel. Plenty of warm water provided. You... More

We found this motel in "lonely planet" and made contact via phone. The booking was the easiest we encountered, and the owner was extremely helpful. We got the platinum motel unit and found it in a remote corner of the Catlins from where the local penguin colony and the southernmost lighthouse can be easily reached. The unit is very well... More

Great place to stay. Just a few minutes from the southern most point on the South Island. Very friendly host. Spotless bathrooms and plent of hot water. Great place for a group. Full kitchen where you can prepare meals if you like.
