Nothing extraordinary, but the room was clean and spacious, the shower was hot and strong (although it has no screen or shower curtain) and the bed was really comfortable and big. Free wifi was pretty good too. Overall, a pretty nice place to spend the night if you're traveling to/from Buller Gorge.

In this modest little town, this was a sweet, comfortable place to stay. Beds were great, staff most responsive and helpful. Quietly set back from the street, and a grill was available for cooking. Our stay in Murchison was so we could hike the Mount Roberts Loop Trail as well as a Charming Creek Trail north of Westport. It was... More

We were really impressed with the motel. We had a 2 br unit with 2 adults, 2 kids & it was certainly ample space for us. The bathroom had a wonderful hot shower with lots of water & great water pressure (tho it did pulse), it had a spa bath (we didn't use it), oodles of towels, hand towel, bath... More

1 night here at this Hotel. Stayed in a studio along side 3 others. Yes lacked any Garden or Greenery but for for an overnight stay the room was clean and the bed comfy. Just shut the bathroom door of a night as we were woken up in the morning with the noise of the man doing his bathroom duties... More

We were booked for two nights but due to finishing business early we ended up only staying the one night. Bit disappointed it was only the one as this was a very well presented motel. The layout meant it seemed like we weren't in the next tenants pockets. There was a pool/picnic area, and the gardens were well landscaped in... More

The town centre location is convenient for most restaurants and stores. Our welcome was friendly and helpful. We booked a studio. On the downside, the complex will never win an architectural award and there was too much tarmac and not enough greenery for our liking. But who worries too much about that at the end of a long day? Our... More

We bowled in here, very late and exhausted from tramping, expecting nothing from this remote town, and asked for the most basic offering. We were blown away to walk into a lovely room and, especially, by the gorgeous bathroom. This place is stylish and has many little touches that make it special (including locally-made toiletries, nice crockery, an abundance of... More

Had a wonderful stay, in very clean well appointed motels. Situated close to the town with cafe's and rivers, walks all close by. The people very helpful when wanting to know about Mutchison, places to go and what walks, fishing etc was including some clue to local fishing spots. These motels are comfortable, are of a modern style and at... More
