We stayed two nights in a twin room as we wanted to get a bit of serious walking in. Receptionist Emma was a very helpful alert Swedish girl who gave us good info and helped with playing cards, laundry etc. Kitchen was better than average, big and clean. wi fi didn't work very well tho...and the owner admitted there wasn't...

I was travelling with my young son and was told by the female receptionist to park in the carpark in front of the kitchen area. A couple of nights later I came back and found it full, so parked in the only spot I could in order to let others come and go. Found my car rolled forward the next... More

As per the title, no matter who you are, where you come from or what you are doing. This lodge will make you feel right at home. The family that runs it is fantastic, plus they have immense experience in hiking so if you have any question they'll be able to give great help. Rooms are cosy and warm, kitchen... More

We stayed one night in a log cabin during late winter, the room was warm with the heater on. We should have stayed longer. The room was big and tidy with basic cooking facilities, which was lucky because the restaurant in town was closed. There is a great bush walk at the back door of the Motel which leads down... More

We stayed one night in a cabin with lounge, little kitchen (with everything you need though) and bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The heat pump kept us warm on a very cold night, everything was very clean and tidy. The receptionist (and owner I believe) was very helpful and chatty. We had a very nice stay!

Spent 2 nights here with my grandson recently & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Yvonne, the owner was very friendly & helpful. The Lodge was booked out that first night so we actually spent that night in one room of their 'Cottage' (the cottage had two rooms so we shared the living area and bathroom with another guest) before we moved into...

This place is very good for a stop for trampers. The facilities were very clean and tidy. This has been the cleanest kitchen in a hostel so far (we have done a few) and actually provides surface cleaner and separate cleaning cloths for the surfaces (only one other hostel we have stayed in has have done this). We arrived quite... More

Stayed here prior to setting off on the Travers-Sabine circuit with a party of 6 and also stayed on our return. Excellent spacious motel unit and friendly staff. At the back of the motel there is a lovely bush walk next to a river down to the lake (and water taxi). Also parking for your vehicle at the motel while... More

Easily my favourite hostel in NZ. It’s super clean. Fairly quiet - apart from the big heavy doors that like to overpower you and slam shut. It’s the sort of place where solo travellers (especially trampers) can meet one another. The lounge room is the perfect spot to enjoy a book in front of the fire. There is an additional... More

This place is super comfi, and the owner is very nice. I arrived late with no booking, while the hostel was closed, but the owner agreed to let me in and gave me a room for the night. The common room is great, and the pictures on the wall make you want to go hike right away. I strongly advise... More
