“Very good accomodation in a 'why would you go there town?'”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Lisa was a wonderful host who thought of everything. She was particularly helpful when we couldn't get the wifi working and she invited us into her home to help get it sorted.
We stayed in the new accommodation out the back and it was fantastic....Lovely comfy bed and big screen tv....
The only thing we found with Bluff was the aluminium smelter....It is the only view you see...and to us, it dominated everything...The town needs some more food outlets and restuarants....
We drove up to the lookout {and checked the smelter from up high} and had fish and chips sitting by the sea {which was lovely}

Great stay for one night even if we were too early for the Bluff oysters. Did get some further up the coast later. Best oysters ever. Room was great with every small detail taken care of even a pair of binoculars for use to watch passing ship etc. Lisa so helpful. She has done an excellent job of setting this up.

Room Tip: ask for the unit with the large window overlooking the bay.

We stayed here one night in Jan and we were not disappointed.
It was exactly what we wanted and Lisa was polite and friendly. The unit was spotless and comfy, it had all we needed. We would stay again.

The home looks out on the channel. While you need to share a bath, the views from the room are superb. The bed was very comfortable and the area was quiet at night. There is a small shared kitchen as well.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms facing the channel have excellent views. Watching the tide roll out and in was s...

This is probably one the nicest B&B's on the South Island. If you have the opportunity to stay here you will not be disappointed. Lisa and her husband are fabulous hosts, the water front view is excellent, and rooms are clean and modern. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the area or needing a place to stay to catch the ferry to and from Stewart Island (the ferry landing is a few blocks down the street).

We stayed here for one night and loved this place! The host Lisa is so friendly and does an excellent job running this accommodation. We stayed in a room upstairs and the room was very clean with a great bed and free wifi. Because our cage diving trip was delayed we had to stay until 1pm. Although we checked out at 8:30am for this dive, it wasn't any problem to return to this place and stay until 1pm. We could even use the room again! Now that is what you call good service!

When you want to stay in Bluff, this is the place to be!

Stayed here for two nights with a day trip to Stewart island in between. Lisa was very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in a small motel unit out the back and it was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Payed about 120 AUD per night on line. Short walk to ferry terminal. Would recommend this one. A note - none of the restaurants in Bluff open on a Monday night, so fish and chips it is!
