We loved staying here, what an awesome little place! Please enter here with a fair expectation of staying in a small guesthouse in small town NZ and you’ll love it. The decor fits perfectly with the era of the building and it’s context. Bedrooms are comfortable and all needs are met with toiletries, comfy beds, heaters and electric blanket. The bar is a great place to hang out with generous pours at the bar, a warm fire, TV and plenty of comfy seating. Breakfast is simple but perfectly adequate and excellent advice on tap from wonderful hosts. Loved it!

I can highly recommend this place. From the moment we walked in we felt welcome. When we asked to watch a movie in the bar / lounge area, the fire was switched on and lovely warm popcorn was served! We then watched a good Netflix movie with wine and popcorn. The resident cat was a cutie, I love the way he sits at the reception waiting to check you in and out.

Stayed at this hotel for one night and had initial reservations about shared bathroom. But there were no issues once we had checked in. Walking distance to the Stewart island ferry terminal and the hotel happily allowed us to leave our car in their car park whilst we stayed at Stewart island. Host Mike and Pam really made us feel at home. This place is recommended.

Had a great time time at this Hotel, The owners are wonderful, and made it feel just like home. Didn't get a change to have any meals there or have a drink in the bar, as we were doing other things, but the setup looked great. The Hotel is older, but that is all part of the charm.
