Leanne was very accommodating and helpful from the first contact. The beds are comfortable, the hosts friendly and the setting tranquil. It was a great couple of nights of relaxing before and after the Heaphy Track. Would definitely stay again! Thanks for a most enjoyable stay!

It was great staying with friends in standalone units where we could spread out and come together when it suited. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Easy walk to town centre, would definitely recommend.

We had a night here with our 2 little ones and were so glad we chose it! The host Leanne was warm, friendly, polite & made us feel right at home, as did the other staff. Our chalet was immaculate, like really really clean, and had everything we could possibly need. One of the highlights was the beautiful grotto in the garden! The kids found it really enchanting, and it was gorgeous with all the fairy lights, glow in the dark guide stones and of course the glow worms! They even provided a torch so we could go exploring safely. Highly recommend this place, especially fabulous for families but would be fabulous for couples too.

This place is something special, Most accommodation providers have all the rooms in one building but at The Rocks, each chalet is separate and well away from the others offering ideal peace and tranquillity. Each chalet is very large and extremely well appointed. The location is about 800m short of the township in a beautiful location surrounded by trees and rocks. For a great stay in Golden Bay this place would be hard to beat.
