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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Can’t fault it. Easiest check in experience of my life - she just showed me where to park and the keys were in the door. The room was spotless. Perfectly appointed with everything you need and nothing you don’t. Everything seemed almost brand new! Very comfortable bed too, not overly soft like a lot of non-chain hotels have. I wish I had stayed longer!

This accommodation is by far one of the best on the South Island. The location and view is unforgettable and spectacular. The unit was exceptionally clean, well equipped and comfortable. It is a real pleasure to stay there because the place is so welcoming and friendly. This is a real gem - we highly recommend this motel.

Nice motel, clean and tidy, with friendly staff. Great view of the beach to the Nugget Point lighthouse from our room. All the things you need for this type of holiday, IE not doing city stuff! Get a room with kitchen facilities. Very few places to eat/drink in the area, and none if you're there on the wrong nights ;-) Definitely recommended.

The well appointed, clean, spacious and comfortable units at this motel have great sea views over Kaka Point Beach and very good parking per unit. This was appreciated as we had a larger vehicle plus bikes on behind. Our hosts went out of their way to make our stay special, including the provision of a courtesy ride out to dinner. From this base we were able to easily explore the northern Catlins area over a couple of days. We would not hesitate to recommend this motel.

This motel has such a welcoming feel about it - very friendly and obliging hosts. Units are clean, well appointed and spacious and the separate lounge has a bonus sea view. It was great to be able to use the BBQ for cooking an evening meal and outdoor seating was also well utilized by our group. Generous parking space which was a bonus as we had bikes on board. Good value for money. Kaka Point is such a beautiful little town and only a short distance to drive or bike out to the Nuggets. We will definitely recommend this motel to friends

Great little spot. Beautiful views looking over Kaka Beach. Short walk down hill to the beach. Unit was very clean and tidy. Spacious. Loved the Nespresso machine in the room. Good base for exploring the Catlins. Easy check in and out. Would recommend if you want to explore the region.

We were a group and booked several motel units, both one bedroom and 2 bedroom. The motels are fresh, modern, well equipped and very clean. Karen & Blair were wonderful hosts and nothing was any bother. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Good parking (we had a 12 seater van to park). Up on a small hill, we could see the beach and Nugget Point Lighthouse. Walking distance to the small town, there is nothing else you would want for. Kaka Point is a great place, plenty to do in the area and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.
