Superb concept and a great 2 night stay, loved everything about the silo design and also the location of Little River. Probably ate the best food of our 3 week tour of NZ at the adjoining restaurant..the views from Silo 1 are to die for ...absolutely amazing...
We originally booked to stay a night around the date of our 35th Wedding Anniversary to give ourselves an experience we have not had before but unfortunately COVID level restrictions prevented this so instead visited last night. It was a lovely bright day and the accommodation was toasty warm. The silo was well maintained and had what you needed for an intimate cozy nights stay. The bed was very comfortable and the view from the silo upstairs was great. We would highly recommend for couples for a nights stay and we will book again in the future! Great breakfast next door at Little River Diner
Excellent place to stay, I haven’t stopped smiling since I got here Great view from our silo and massive merino jam in the road outside earlier with sheep dogs doing their stuff Well though out and great fun- eco friendly as well
Absolutely amazing!!! 10/10!!! From England travelling NZ for 5 months now, and the Silos have been the best place to stay by far!! Could not recommend enough. Beautiful location in the rolling hills, beautiful hosts, beautiful set-up throughout the eco-homes, from the quirky, unique and fantastic style to the cute little fold to the toilet paper!! Excellent sleeping conditions even on a hot summers day, with the full use to a clean private kitchen, toilet and showers. Perfect spot in Little River, with the cafe at ideal distance to roll out of bed to a scrumptious scrambled egg on toast in the morning, and the Little River Inn at a good stumble distance from the silos!! Hosts and owner Rob really made me feel welcome, and on call for any questions or queries I had throughout my stay! Can not wait to book in with the silo team for my next visit, will definitely be staying again! Thank you Team Silo!!…
Unique experience with clean facility and friendly staff. We had a lovely weekend exploring local places. We will definitely recommend this place to stay to our friends and family. We will be back. Thank you.
This place is amazing. Eco friendly and very comfortable. Some really well thought out initiatives here. Our stay was a gift from our kids to their over worked, over tired stressed out parents. It was just what we needed. We took advantage of the bikes and rode to Birdlings Flat and back with a cheeky stop off at the Little River Inn - eased the "bike butt" for the last wee bit. Great stay - would highly recommend.
We've wanted to stay here since we first saw it it built. And finally managed a 2 night stay this month! A collection of 8 silos, converted into accommodation on 2 levels (1 is 1 level for disabled access). Ground floor is a well equipped kitchen and genius loo. Flush the loo, the tap on the handbasin above starts flowing, filling the cistern as you wash your hands. Shuts off automatically once full! Upstairs is a bed and a shower/sink. The shower is clear glass which might not be to everyone's taste 😁. There is also a small balcony. Silo 8 overlooks trees and shrubs at the back of the property. In the roof, there is a glass hatch through which you can see the stars. The silo was very warm (even for a cold person like me) and cosy. We prearranged a platter for the first night, which comes with a bottle of bubbles. It was awesome and it actually lasted us both nights. There is a cafe and general store to the left and a diner to the right. Both served up great breakfasts and coffee. Well worth staying - our only question is 'what took us so long' Rob the owner was great to chat to, as well. Hopefully will head back there 😁…
Great 2 night stay in these quirky Silos. The Silo was immacutely presented and well equipped. Lovely little deck to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The only downside is that there is no restaurant in the immediate vicinity that serves dinner or if there is, we couldn't find one.
We only stayed here one night. If you are looking for somewhere a bit quirky to stay then this is it. Everything has been very well thought out and there is pretty much everything you could need in the room. Only thing if you could be picky was the location maybe. It would be cool if they were off the main road in a slightly secluded area but thats just me.
We stayed here 5 years ago and came back yesterday for a last minute stay. The silos are still in excellent condition and are well equipped for short stays. Comfortable bed, excellent books in the book exchange and a cafe either side. The photo is a view from the upper balcony of silo 6. The site manager, Rob, is very helpful and friendly.
