We came across this urban gem completely randomly. We were welcomed by the staff and fellow guests with a bbq and drinks. This campsite/motel is a home from home. When it comes to facilities they have everything a backpacker could possibly need and all for a reasonable price! This is a great place to meet other travellers and get an insight into local traditions. Don't be shy if you want to get the most from your stay!
We were lucky enough to be taken on a tour of the Marlborough sounds where we saw some of the most incredible views of New Zealand. During our tour we visited several sites on the private boat where we learnt some of the local history including the story of captain hook and encountered a mixture of wildlife From birds to dolphins. This was a place of natural beauty and peaceful tranquility that we will never forget topped off by karasmatic tour guide who will remain a good friend to us.
