“Self serve = no service”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

We did not see staff for 2 days including check in. No cleaning, towels upon request but no pick up of old towels or rubbish disposal. Remote location far from everything except albatross and legions (a feature, I suppose). For sale for a good reason: the owner couldn't be bothered. And, the topper, room rates at Hilton prices. Stay in Potobello.

We stayed with another couple in these "cabins" - see photo. These had updated shower/toilet - very clean and efficient. Kitchen area was fine - microwave and hotplates. Sink was fine - not sure what previous reviewer means. You can park car right next to the units and there is plenty of space round most of them. We picked it because of its proximity to the albatross and penguin area - only 5 mins drive away. Also some glorious beaches near - Victory beach (saw sea lions), Sandfly beach (sea lions, seals and yellow eyed penguins). Stan and Heather very helpful - he let us have some of his petrol as we were running on empty - nearest fuel is Dunedin so top up your tank there.

This motel is really a mixed bag. We rented one of the self contained units which turned out to be 1/2 of one of the free standing structures on the grounds of the motel. The motel is really well located near the penguin and albatross colonies at the end of the peninsula. The room we rented was very clean and the staff was friendly. There was a beach with access across the street from the hotel.

But, the kitchen had no stove and no hot water. The since was only 2cm deep which is impractical to do anything other than spill water on the floor. The water in the bathroom came out of the tap brown in color. The dishes provided with the room were dirty when we arrived, but to be honest, they looked clean on first glance and so I can understand how they were overlooked.

If you don’t mind all of the bad parts, it is a great location to visit the albatrosses and a clean place to stay. But, it is pricey and inconvenient otherwise. I wont plan to stay here again.

  • Liked — Location
  • Disliked — Everything else pretty much except for the friendly staff and the room.
