“Lovely Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Nice rooms in a Victorian style house. It is very nicely decorated and the rooms have plenty of space. Nice warm heaters for the winter. The host was very friendly and welcoming. There are only 3 channels on tv, but there is a great wireless connection. The pizza from the restaurant was quite tasty also.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We were warmly welcomed by Paula at the restaurant next door at 8pm on a cold May Thursday night and she was happy to serve us a lovely meal and explained "the beer fridge is open, help yourself and pay for what you drink". A great start! After dinner she showed us to our room in the main 'house'. It's a little hard to describe the house. The bedroom was lovely , as its website shows (although the floor was rather creaky and had a weird undulation in it) , but the rest of the house is a bit '70's - lino floored dining/kitchen and bathrooms and brown brick feature wall in the lounge behind the prototype Connara wood heater. Not that I was disappointed, it just wasn't what I expected and didn't quite match the bedroom on the website. There are three bedrooms with individual locks, so I'm not exactly sure of the set-up as it looks like you could be sharing the house with other people if it was busy (worth a question on booking). It was cold - 2 deg. outside, and the wood supply was beech or pine, so even with six logs in the fire and the heater door open, you had to sit in front of it. So the rest of the house, especially the bathrooms out the back, was rather cool. The bedroom had a portable oil heater in it, which was fine for heat, but thy're tricky to set for a comfortable sleeping temperature.
All in all, it's neat, tidy and comfortable, and I would stay there again and recommend it as long as you don't mind something a little quirky.

Stayed in Reefton to visit a relative. We arrived on the evening of the Rugby World Cup Final and Paula was very accommodating - we had pizza in our room watching the final which was great after a long journey. The house is over 100 years old and very impressive. We slept well, the room was secure, warm and clean and we would stay again. We enjoyed our stay at Alfresco, Paula was very friendly and we enjoyed visiting the town.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room with a en suite bathroom which we were very happy with.
