Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely little getaway in one of the house rooms. Appreciated the little kitchenette and the comfy bed, everything was clean and tidy. Despite everything being in one room, the space was spacious and everything you need was included. Good value for a solo traveler with family in the area.

we had a wonderful stay at the station house motel!! we are traveling in NZ without a car and found it very difficult to find our way to wharariki beach (one of the main reasons we traveled to collingwood). it was late and cloudy, and Sophie, the owner was kind enough to give us a ride to the beach (saying she would wait for us if she wouldn't have to take her son to soccer practice). we had a great visit at wharariki beach but i became worried because there were no people around to help us hitchhike back to collingwood. on our way back to the car park, rain started pouring and the sunset is near, no people around, and then we saw Sophie, she was waiting for us!! apparently the practice got canceled so she stayed, worried we won't find our way back to the motel. she was so thoughtful and generous, we had a great talk on our way back. I offered to pay for her time and gas for the car, but they refused, said we should spend it on food and grab somthing to eat (and so we did). we highly recommend on staying at the staion house motel. lovely people, lovely place.

The host was very welcoming when we arrived & showed us all we needed to know in order to settle in. We stayed in the Garden Cottage. The place was spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable & the heater most welcome at this time of year. It was great to be able to cook in the kitchen nook though we were worried about the hob having no extractor to remove moisture or cooking smells - it was a little too chilly to leave the door open. Two suggestions: a compost bucket for food scraps & a box of tissues would be useful. We would recomend this place & aim to return some day.

Sylvie was fantastic, heard my bike lobbing up so came straight out and moved a car so I had a flat area to park on, real milk provided as well, extremely attentive. large room, all mod cons, old fashioned so so tidy. Well enough impressed as I only spent 1 night here to stay here for 3 nights next year, as hopefully I will be back in NZ next summer to ride around some more

We spent 3 nights in one of the front rooms, which had small but good kitchenette. Right in town. Friendly owners, they can book the Farewell Spit tour for you too. We would defiantly stay there again

We had 4 nights at The Station House whilst we explored Farewell Spit and surrounding region in this top corner of the South Island. Collingwood is a small place, and The Station House is perfectly sited in the middle, within short walking distance (50 metres) to the main street. We had the Garden Cottage, with a small sunny backyard and garden area full of fruit trees. We found the bed comfortable, we used the cooking facilities in the room, and found it usefully appointed with shelves and places to put things (too often we find motel rooms look great but have insufficient places to put things when we unpack). Parking is right outside. We did find the neighbours a little noisy when they departed early in the morning, and the WiFi wasn't too good in the evenings (presumably the bandwidth doesn't support the kids and other guests at peak times), but these were minor annoyances. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and we had great weather for our stay. We'd love to stay there again.

We stayed for one night, with our two children (aged 8 and 12) and we all loved it. The owners were very kind and our youngest enjoyed playing with their child. The garden setting was lovely and it was a very peaceful, relaxing place to stay. Very handy (a quick walk) to the beach and shops.

This one is hard to review. We booked the family garden cottage to allow us more space . Our stay was 2 nights. Location was great a short walk to the little township and great spot to explore the area right up and around farewell spit. Agree with other reviews about the character of this motel but a few things made it less about character more about wear and tear. Couch bedding etc needs updating with holes in the couch and was a bit musty and sagging The outdoor area is a small decking that sits in the owners garden .. they live in the house on site and it was a busy time for them so it was quite full on...not quite the quiet garden we thought it looked like when we booked.I guess in way that this motel felt more like an airbnb rather than a motel.Having said all this and stating that it really was not a great place for us it does have aspects about it that some have and will enjoy .
