The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hot tub was a great way to relax after a days walking. The pub next door...

Lovely room (mini lodge) which was well equipped and very comfortable. General facilities were excellent & hosts were very friendly. Only sorry we were not staying longer to make the most of the hot tub and cooking/dining facilities (but the almost-next-door bar/restaurant provided good value, tasty food & drink.

Owners were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Beautiful location, just out of town. Great facilities and clean rooms. One night stay wasn't really enough. I would recommend buying your own food and use the cooking facilities there, wish we had done this rather than sampling local restaurants. The breakfast was a true delight too, shame I'm gluten free as the baking...

We enjoyed the stay at your lodge very much. We laughed a lot with you. The hot tub was very enjoyable specially to enjoy the reflection of the fern trees in the water. This lodge is a must when you visit the Northern West Coast of NZ

Great spot! Beautiful quiet area & great rooms! You feel so peaceful in this part of town, it's about 10-15 outside of Westport city area. Loved this spot! We would definitely stay here again. Homemade breakfast in common kitchen in the morning. Super nice kitchen, while experience was a very good home like feeling! Owners are super nice too :)

Includes simple fresh breakfast in a friendly and pleasant communal room. Nothing but smiles in this lodge type accommodation on the edge of the South Island. The walk around the coast from...

Situated just outside the main town, the lodge was of high quality, and the manager was very friendly and helpful. It is the extra personal touches that make your stay memorable. Fantastic experience.

Perfect place when winging it. Great location and very friendly service by owners, above and beyond. Close to tourist spots. Thank you for your wonderful service. The Star Tavern was a hidden gem and recommended by the Motel owners.
