What a lovely long review of your stay with us. We enjoy sneaking away occasionally to the top of the Pass, it gets one of us out of cleaning for a while. Sighting Kea is not always a guarantee as their numbers are declining, so...More
Walked into my unit and felt at home. Cozy and comfortable. 15minutes from village centre. Wonderful hosts in Fi and Pete. Stayed for 3 nights, could have stayed longer. Great kitchen and bring food with you as eating places are limited in availability and qualityMore

Nice clean and spacious unit - no complaint.
Keep in mind that there is a train track that go between the pass between the coast. The train operates even at night. Regardless of where you stay in Arthur's Pass, you'll hear the train passing at...More

Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to review our motel.
There are generally 2 trains that roll through in the middle of the night as a constant reminder of why this little alpine village is even here. I think trains are struggling...More
