Our room was comfortable and warm - a welcome relief after days of rain and storms. Like a B&B, the setup is more like a large house than a purpose-built hotel but that's part of the charm. The room was large, with a comfortable bed and had reasonable amenities including free Wi-Fi. The bathroom was a little on the small... More

My husband, adult son and I spent 1 night in the "Tui" cottage which is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath unit. It is located in the back of the complex, so very quiet. Bedroom #1: queen with comfortable inner-spring mattress. Bedroom #2: 2 twins. Bathroom: hairdryer, lighting is from ceiling light only and mirror is to the left of the... More

Everyone laughed when we said were staying at Murchison everyone we told laughed. It is a lovely little town. Tui cottage is two bedroom cottage, comfortable and clean and warm and all we needed. We enjoyed the scenic route drive from Picton to Murchison. It certainly wasn't as small as we were lead to believe. We had dinner in one... More

We stayed one night whilst travelling from Hokitika to Nelson. After the GPS sent us in the wrong direction we found the place. It was dark by the time we arrived, an a bit chilly. However the welcome from Jenny was very warm. The room we had was the "Kea" unit. (It was obviously an extension of the house) The... More

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
