Stayed one night in January. Very comfortable room and a picturesque location. Maybe the sunshine helped! Very close to Murchison centre but restaurants thin on the ground for dinner. Cowshed was closed during our visit as chef had a hand injury! River cafe not open Monday to Wednesday. Only Commercial hotel's bar menu and the Hampton open. You may be... More

Stayed here one night only, in the Kea Studio apartment. This room is no use to you if you want to cook an evening meal from scratch, as there's no room in the wash-basin for cleaning anything, and only a microwave and toaster for cooking, but it is a lovely quiet location, room was immaculately clean, bed was very comfortable,...

I wish I could have time to read review from Melmain62 before I made a booking. Some of the things didn't changed since he wrote his review(2013). In my case I made my booking before 9pm. I could check the box during booking with estimated time of my arrival so I did it. At the final location I helped myself... More

Convenient and comfortable, although chilly. Perfectly suitable for a small family or group. Great facilities, including warm blankets and a powerful heat pump for the chilly nights. Easy to park and then grab the keys from what is best described as self-check in! But made it easy when arriving after dark.

Booked in advance with booking .com. On arrival at the address you do wonder if you have come to the right place after seeing the pictures on the booking.com site. It is obviously someones home. You are greeted by a broken down vehicle looks like its been undergoing running repairs/dismantling for quite sometime. The street side of the property is... More

Lovely setting and easy walking distance into town. We stayed in Kea studio which was comfortable and clean. Bathroom was a little on the small side but the accommodation was good and of a high standard. I would certainly recommend a stay here.

Stayed one night en route to Motueka. Wasn't sure what to expect, but what a fabulous surprise. Quietly nestling in a private garden we were very impressed with the standard of the cottages and the position was idyllic. The cottages are very well appointed and Jenny and Melissa were very helpful with local info. Not expensive either.

RiverSong is a peaceful and lovely palce to unwind. The Falcon cottage we slept in is a wide and warm wooden building, with a nice batrhoom and a fully equipped kitchen to use. Beds are very comfy. The garden is wide and very well maintained. Hammocks are available to relax, as well as a badminton pitch. Jenny is a lovely... More

My husband and I stayed in the Kea studio attached to the RiverSong house. The room was quiet and clean. Hotel owner was very friendly and helped us book expeditions and dinner. Just a block away from the main street in Murchision.
