Haast River Motels & Holiday Park
Reviewed February 4, 2013

As for most people, we stopped here on our way from the glaciers to Queenstown. Pleasant staff and good welcome. Good sites for campervans. Kitchen, BBQ and bathroom areas very good and all seemed fairly new. Bathroom areas large and for the size of the camp perhaps more toilets and showers would be good. OK for a one night stopover.

Stayed in family studio unit. Modern clean and neat. Didnt like all 4 beds in 1 room. Bathroom and toilet are together and the whole place got wet after a shower. Bit on the expensive side for the type of room. Friendly and helpful hosts. Locations bit isolated from rest of haast.

We stayed in a motel room and found everything to our liking, the unit was spacious with comfortable chairs, well appointed kitchen area and large modern bathroom. It was super clean with tasteful decor and comfortable beds. There is a guest area with a large screen TV, board games for bored kids and comfortable chairs for chilling out. All in all a top rate place to stay. We would stay here again. There is a spa but it was not working when we stayed.

Haast Top10 is 3kms north of the main town. A bit underwhelmed by Haast but it was half way between Queenstown and Fox Glacier to break the drive. We were warmly welcomed and the accommodation was very good - could not really complain about anything.

Haast River Top10 is 3kms north of Haast Village Center and is ideally located if you need to take a break during your drive from Queenstown to Fox Glacier or vice-versa. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms have beautiful views, and the place is at a driving distance from a nice beach (though the seas can be rough). There are only a couple of eateries and stores in the Village Center. We ate at the Hard Antler, and the food there seemed like from any of the top-class restaurants.

Room Tip: See if you can get the rooms on upper level, preferably room #5 :)

What a nice place. Norma and her husband were very welcoming at reception. Our room was large, really clean and well equipped. We felt so sorry for the campervans lining up in the rain - and even more sorry for the campers - as we watched TV in the warmth of our very comfortable family unit. The advice about where to buy fish and chips was spot on. The washing machine and dryer worked really well. All in all a lovely stay in a fairly desolate spot.

We arrived here after a long and tiring drive. Our reception was welcoming and friendly.
The facilities here were excellent - spotlessly clean kitchen area and warm, spotless bathrooms with lots of hot water.
I think the thing that pleased me the most was the planter of various herbs near the kitchen - there for the use of guests! I thought that was a lovely touch.
This was a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We were in an RV so didn't see the rooms but the programme needs me to check the space before it...
