I’ve known this place since 2015 through a friend. I had no chance to see it until today. David pick us up from Westport. Upon arrival, the luggages will be carried through a quad bike, then it’s an uphill 10min hike, torch is helpful. The place offers an amazing view (either with a cuppa or wine or just sit and watch the sea), nice and tidy, feels like home, lush green sceneries, close to nature, walk by the beach, georgie sammy and lilly will accompany you too. We are greatful for David and Susannah for sharing their lovely paradise, they are friendly and accomodating. I will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
We have known about The Old Slaughterhouse’s outstanding reputation for almost twenty years but not managed to get over to Hector to stay, until now. We stayed for one night before and three nights after tramping the Old Ghost Road. This Travellers Lodge is simply stunning in terms of location; views over the Tasman; unique and creative flair; individual style; comfort of beds, cabins and rooms; outstanding quality and value. Underpinning all these, David and Susannah are warm, friendly, gracious and creative hosts who share their unique home with their fortunate guests, many of whom return each year. We hope to do so ourselves as soon as possible! (They are very honest about the walking track from the carpark up to the Lodge, their quad bike luggage service but the necessity of guests to be able and fit enough to walk up. We knew what to expect and had no difficulty in doing so, despite our ages (70+). )…
A slightly delayed jolly due to lockdown but definitely worth the wait. Dave & Susannah were great hosts and really felt like staying at your own place. We arrived just before sunset, Dave picked up our bags and we wandered the 10 minutes up the track enjoying amazing views of the coast. There was a welcoming cup of tea and picnic table on the deck to enjoy the best of the view. We stayed in the cabin which was very cosy and had lovely views. Kitchen and living areas well set up so the simple food supplies we brought worked well. A fantastic stay and looking forward to visiting again as every visit we discover more to see next time. Thanks so much.
After walking up the hill for about 10 minutes the view was stunning and the finish of the main buildings and the rooms amazing. Lots of room for cooking and sitting in comfortable couches and chairs. The highlight was sitting outside for dinner. All the luggage gets taken by the owners by 4 wheeler. Quite unique. Owners very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended
