The Lantern Court Motel is delightfully homey, comfy and full of warm hospitality. The accommodation is older, but it's charm shines through the rooms beautifully presented, clean and warm and well appointed. The hospitality and warmth from our host Kerry was second to none! And given we were 'displaced' due to the Transalpine Train cancellation - to arrive to this...

We stayed overnight, twice. It was a very handy location for our travel, a half way point. We opted for the budget 2 star rooms and they were great. Clean & tidy. All the supplies you need for an overnight stay. Kitchen & Bathrooms are older style. Reminded me of a holiday bach from times gone by.

We booked the three bedroom apartment here and it was fantastic. If you're looking for super modern then maybe this isn't for you but if you're up for blending into the feel of the town then you'll love this place. Beds are comfy! Lantern Court is central in Reefton but only minutes walk from the gorgeous Inangahua River. It's next...

We stayed in a three bedroom unit on our stopover, on our way to Queenstown. It was very tidy and homely. But what really made our stay was the beautiful host who waited around for us for our arrival at 9pm after some car issues. She greeted us so kindly and pointed us to somewhere where we would be able...

We stayed one night at the Lantern Court on our way to Motueka. Good location as it's right next door to the supermarket. Frank upgraded us to a larger apt (since we had travel delays) and the apt was very clean and spacious. We received excellent recommendations for a 6 mile loop hike and where to eat - the Pub....

Comfortable bed, good wifi, kitchen ok. Friendly lady on reception who gave us advice on the condition of the roads for our trip the following day.

Hi LilaBear87, Thank you for posting your review. I was genuinely upset you did not get to enjoy a full nights sleep while you were here.
