Had a really good meal here after a long day, nice spot to stay and take a break as well as recovering from day 3 of Queen Charlotte's Track. Nice view over the Kenepuru sound and the fresh mussels were stunning.

We stayed there with friends while doing the queen Charlotte walk. Rather dated accommodation which has had a spruce up. Bar meals close at 5pm, the restaurant Rice's after that. Consider $35 for butter chicken, and $45 for a bottle nz wine a bit expensive.

A great place to stop on day 3 of the QCT. They prepare a hearty lunch for day 4 and you can certainly relax with a beer overlooking the Bay.

The Portage has a prime spot, a beautiful location and is very handy for the third night on the QCT. However it is very obviously run down now and in need of a significant overhaul to justify the pricey rooms. The rooms we had were...More
