The couple who ran the place went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms were spacious, the beds , shower and kitchenette were all good. The position is in a quiet area. I would recommend this place.

We were lucky enough to have the 'Love Shack' as we are told it is called. A dear little stand alone new addition to this complex. Beautifully clean, very well appointed and comfortable. Would visit again and recommend.

The room is spacious and the bed linens smell clean & fresh. It comes with a kitchenette with complete utensils, crockery etc. My children love playing at the playground. The lady owner is very friendly and helpful, she makes us feel at home. We had a great stay there!

We stayed here two nights, and it was very lean – which is important to me. It was a basic motel unit, but the bed was comfy, and the room was so quiet. It was nice to have a laundry. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Considering you are in a small town, it was a comfortable place to stay. We'd stay there again. The cleanliness was important to me, and therefore very much appreciated. My husband thought it was a bit overpriced but I thought it was a good, comfortable place - so enjoyed it nonetheless!

Arriving in the evening, we were warmly welcomed and told about things to do in the area and suggested eating places. The room was large and very clean and the beds very comfortable. We would like to have stayed longer and hope to return on another trip.

The best value we struck on our S.I. journey. Congratulations and well done.The room was well presented and had everything one could wish for. Watched a couple of guys sifting for gold in the black sand on the beach. Apparently washed down the Buller river out to sea then ground fine by the wave action and ending up on the beach. I think you still need to keep your day job, I could be wrong on that !
