Beautiful area along the Haast River, with views of the mountains, and not far from the Tasman Sea. Our room was larger than most other motel rooms we've stayed in, and comfortably furnished with a king bed, couch and dinette set. Had it not been raining, we could have sat on the spacious balcony and enjoyed the view with a glass of wine. The kitchenette was well equipped, including two hot plates and a full set of pots, pans and dishes. Plunger coffee was a nice change from the instant stuff that many other motels provide. The bathroom was large, with modern plumbing fixtures, good water pressure and temperature control. FYI, we couldn't get cell service in the area, but that's part of the charm of getting away, no? Make sure you have dinner, or at least a drink, at the Hard Antler Bar. Lamb shanks were great, and the atmosphere has great local flavour.
