We travelled north part of South Island for our kids' school holiday. For some tourists, Murchison is kinda somewhere in the middle of nowhere where we stopped over before it got dark, and we didn't expect too much in such a small town. We were firstly impressed by the NZ Qualmark four plus sign at the reception. Then we were... More

Nothing extraordinary, but the room was clean and spacious, the shower was hot and strong (although it has no screen or shower curtain) and the bed was really comfortable and big. Free wifi was pretty good too. Overall, a pretty nice place to spend the night if you're traveling to/from Buller Gorge.

In this modest little town, this was a sweet, comfortable place to stay. Beds were great, staff most responsive and helpful. Quietly set back from the street, and a grill was available for cooking. Our stay in Murchison was so we could hike the Mount Roberts Loop Trail as well as a Charming Creek Trail north of Westport. It was... More

We were really impressed with the motel. We had a 2 br unit with 2 adults, 2 kids & it was certainly ample space for us. The bathroom had a wonderful hot shower with lots of water & great water pressure (tho it did pulse), it had a spa bath (we didn't use it), oodles of towels, hand towel, bath... More
