My husband and I stayed two nights in Tui unit and another couple in the studio. Great to be able to use the full kitchen for meals. the owner offered us lettuce and herbs from her garden plus let us use her freezer and kitchen knife! Almost missed seeing the horses and chickens behind the property. Nothing fancy but a... More

A nice place for a few days, but too cramped for any longer. Unit was clean and comfortable, and well equipped. We stayed in Tui cottage for two nights and would have liked to unpack our cases but nowhere to put anything. Outside space very nice, would have liked to have time to try out the hammocks! The two resident... More

I really wonder why we haven't stayed here on previous visits to Murchison. Lovely large cottages in a small garden setting, fresh veges from the garden, everything you need to cater yourself and still just 2min walk off the main street. And not to forget the lovely cats who will surely give you a visit. Will definitely stay again on... More

This place has welcoming hosts (and cats), and the unit was very clean, comfortable and with a good shower. The bed was comfy, though pillows a little soft for me, and there was a small fridge and kettle, plates etc. The garden makes for a nice setting, and has a hammock and child swing.

The cottage had a reasonable sized kitchen, one room with 2 single beds, one with a large double, a living & dining area and good sized bathroom. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The owner was very friendly & helpful and even the cats on the property were all very friendly. There is air-conditioning for the warm day and heat... More

Please read this review in full, it is worth it. We needed a late one night stopover and booked this last minute. Please drive on. This is obviously someone's attempt to make a few dollars on the side. Where do I start? Firstly you park your car out the front (almost on the road) then take the gravel path to... More

Well each season we get one person that cant be pleased. We advertise the Studio as it is and is set up for people who are eating out and want to make a light breakfast. 7pm is not to late to ask for an upgrade or to go somewhere else if the accommodation doesnt suit. I would expect to be... More

Warm and comfortable this was an ideal place to stay to break up a long journey. The accommodation was clean and the bed very comfortable. Ok for a longer stay if you planned on eating out all the time as only really room enough to make a light breakfast (toaster, fridge and microwave). The bathroom sink was small and nowhere... More

We stayed for one night in the studio accommodation. It was modern, spotlessly clean and in an excellent location in Murchison surrounded by lovely gardens. The down side was the tiny hand basin in the bathroom with no shelf or any place to put a sponge bag and no kitchen water supply. Jenny had a system in place where we... More
