This place was lovely with only 6 units. It was pristinely clean, quiet, centrally heated and facilities were excellent. The owners were cheerful and helpful, check in/out easy and parking was undercover for each unit

This has been one of the highlights of our trip. A beautifully presented, clean tidy motel with a very friendly team. We have been able to enjoy all the sights and experiences of the Catlins from a well maintained base. Highly recommended.
