Had a very pleasant experience with very friendly hosts who were well versed in the history of the region Food was very good as we were looking for a relaxing lunch. The drive over the Karamea Bluff Road was very scenic and that added to a good excursion

I stayed here on my way up to the Heaphy Track. The room was a great value, very clean and comfortable and most notably the staff and locals I met were lovely. The pub has a great, homey feel with good food and drink at good prices.

We were drawn in by the coffee and muffin deal and decided to stay the night in one of their small chalets. It was lovely and clean and the pub staff were top notch. Next time we will stay longer to explore a bit more.
