Situated on the wild West Coast, 30 minutes north of Greymouth and 300m south of the famous Pancake Rocks and Blowholes, the Resort is surrounded by the Paparoa National Park and only metres from the beach. Floor to ceiling windows in the Waterline Restaurant and Bar mean you can admire the gorgeous sunset while dining on local West Coast food.Few places in the world can offer such comfort so close to the wild action.

This is a beautiful property, nice walk to blowholes and pancake rocks, although even at high tide, it wasn’t rough enough for the blowholes to “work.” Up a bit further is the Truman Trail, also worth doing (drive! too far to hike!). Our meals at...More
