I can't think of any reason to stay in Haast. This hotel is poor at best. Dark room. Separate hot and cold faucet in bathroom. Fan in bathroom noisy that didn't stop. Have to pay for wifi that doesn't work. The town has no cellular service so be ready to be isolated.

I loved this motel. New owners have just taken over and they are great. The rooms were very clean, needs new pillows though. Everything else was great. I would definitely stay here again. Very easy to walk around Haast from the motel.

This is a clean, quiet motel in a good location in this very small town. Parking is right out in front of the room. The bed was comfortable. We wanted a fan in the room, and the office provided one to us. We would readily stay here again if we were in Haast.

Our 6th accommodation during our 2 month NZ road trip. We stayed here for 3 nights in late-November. Overall, this was a very pleasant place to stay. We were greeted by a very friendly owner who was able to provide us a lovely and very spacious one-bedroom unit. There were two single beds in the room and one double +...

Although the studio unit was clean, I expect more than what I got for $130 per night. Very basic and due for a makeover. The room had a bed and 2 chairs, not even a bedside table, lamp or clock.Bathroom is scruffy and definitely needs an upgrade.

We stayed here for one night on our final night of our West Coast drive. It met our needs for the evening, and was a clean and tidy motel, and very quiet. It had a pleasant outlook over the garden area.

There is not a lot to do in Haast. We were on our way to Queenstown and the map we were using indicated it was a bigger town that it actually is. We actually drove past it thinking there was more just down the road. It was getting late, nothing else open (of the 1 shop in town!). We turned...

Room was just adequate and nothing quite to mention about. took a studio room, single storied building, so could park the vehicle just in front . Bed wasn't so nice. Its near to hotel and Spot on super market though!!! Internet isn't that good. Considering that there was no mobile converge in haast, this wifi was our only resort.

All you need and helpful staff. In remote area so advisable to shop prior to arrival as very limited in local area. A car essential to get around.Modest motel but clean and adequate. Plenty of parking available
