Four light and airy units set in a country garden setting. These motels are situated 50 metres from the local supermarket, three restaurants, an Inn, and across the road from Owaka's famous museum and information centre.This is the perfect place to base yourself while exploring the natural wonders of the Catlins...from the sealions and penguins on the beaches, to the superb waterfalls and the bush walks and birdlife to delight any travelling photographer.Breakfast is available to be served in your room and Gaynor is the only staff member so personal service is the order of the day.

Room was clean and tidy. Gaynor was delightful, helpful, and a great muffin cook! Not much to see in town, but the hotel was right across the road from the museum, and was just a short drive to some pretty spectacular natural scenery.

Owaka Lodge Motel was fantastic. Gaynor was so friendly and helpful. We were treated to homemade apricot muffins in our rooms. Rooms were very clean and very quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Will definitely recommend & stay here again. Perfect spot to start Catlins experience.

This motel 10/10, the lovely lady made us so welcome. Homemade muffins delivered to us with milk in a jug with a nice cover over it. I am sure I have never been at a motel like this. A home away from home. Today we are moving on to look around the Catlins. Did stop at Kaka point and went into the pub, such a beautiful place, also made us so welcome. Met a couple from Napier on a trip very nice people also!

We loved Gaynors’ wee place - simple, but with everything you could need. Super clean and tidy, warm - perfect. Great linen/fluffy towels - Gaynor has lovely welcoming touches - fresh cut flowers and yummy muffins on arrival - very special, what a treat.

Tradional and unpretentious but with extras. A well-appointed kitchen; two comfortable armchairs as well as a small dining table and chairs; milk supplied in a lovely china jug with a lace doilie cover; and home-made apricot muffins wrapped in a linen napkin. Our very helpful hostess made bookings for us at a local restaurant.
