Lantern Court Motel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Reefton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We recently stayed in Reefton at the Lantern Court. The owner met us on arrival and was very welcoming and suggested things we could do in reefton.
The room was lovely as these are fairly new, they were decorated inside with attention to detail really well. The bed was big and comfortable, the lighting was nice, we were on the ground floor and we had a nice patio with french doors opening out. The bathroom was lovely it was nice to see a lovely polished wooden toilet seat in a new motel, every time we entered the bathroom the fan went on not sure how but it did, must have been triggered by movement quite good. The amenities were very good and good cooking facilities with hobs and microwave which was also a convection one.
We had a lovely two days there. Thank You. Garry and Lorna New Plymouth
If you have never been to Reefton dont pass it by stay a while theres more than the main street.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms in the new block would be the same, the others had a balcony but our view was...

We were recently in Reefton and stayed in a 2 bedroom (4 star) unit at Lantern Court Motel. What a treasure of a motel. I would have to say that the 4 star units at this motel are some of the best motel units in New Zealand. Great attention to detail with regards to architectural exterior design (a modern building with an historic influence), great interior decor (relaxing and cozy colour scheme) and the managers (Helen and her husband) are so helpful, kind, caring and proud of Lantern Court. The impeccably clean 4 star units are certainly the best accommodation in Reefton.

I recently decided to return to Christchurch via Lewis Pass instead of Arthurs' and spent a night in Reefton. I stayed in a 4 star room which was very comfortable although an airlock in the radiator did make it noisy. There are 2 star rooms available if you are travelling on a budget. The owner was very helpful with suggestions of where to eat.

We were recently found ourselves unexpectedly stuck in Reefton when the roads were closed to snow. Julie, the manager at the Lantern could not have been more helpful and kind. We managed to secure the last room in town - luckily as it was snowing and freezing and a night in the car would have been very cold!
We stayed in one of the 4 star rooms which was very comfortable, clean and warm. In contrast, the 2 star rooms looked very old and I would not recommend.
Overall probably the best place in town.

We stopped for one night in early May. The owner, Helen, was really helpful with information about the town, places to eat, walks and also for our onward journey to Doubtful Sound. We stayed in the new section of the motel and it was really pleasant, nice room, comfy bed, everything was scrupulously clean and the location was quiet. Next time we will spend more time in Reefton and certainly stay again at this motel.

Very good quality motel in historic but non too special town. We had a complimentary upgrade with large sitting room and kitchen area and a balcony which sadly we couldn't use because of the weather. Comfortable large bed and satellite TV. Free wife for 30 minutes. Excellent reception.

Room Tip: Have an upstairs corner room with balcony
