Great accommodation in easy walking distance of probably the best attraction, walk, and pub in the town, and some nice cafes for breakfast.
Friendly management. Just a nice place to stay.
The Power Station Walk is relatively easy and really pleasant. Taste the gin and eat at the Dawsons Pub. Nothing else to know really.....

Booked in as part of our trip through the Lewis Pass from Blenheim. Character building and what I expect at the front may have been an old 'hotel' back in the day. Nobody was at reception when we arrived (mid afternoon on a Wednesday), but the phone at reception was quickly answered and a couple of minutes later we were greeted and checked in to our room out the back on the gound level.
Could not fault anything here really (although a wall/bedside light in the master bedroom for readers would have been welcomed). The unit itself was a good size, had a carpark outside, double glazing (warm and reduced any road noise I expect), a confortable bed and a couple of radiator heaters which were quick to warm the unit up on a cooler and rainy night. The place was tidy and everything form milk in the fridge to salt and pepper made for a pleasant stay.

Room tip: Is right on the main road in town, we were in a rear unit and was pretty quiet we thought

Reefton has been transformed into a beautiful old historic little town, still with a mining heritage, and that hospitable West Coast atmosphere. Our tour guide had booked us into the Lantern Court Motel. My husband was indulging in eating a fresh hot buttered scone and spilt melted butter down his shirt and trousers. Proprietor kindly offered to launder my husband's clothes, clothes returned clean and dried and folded, wouldn't take payment.

Loved our stay with the Lantern Court. We received a fabulous welcome and stayed in a super cute, comfortable, impeccably clean cottage. We only stayed one night, but wish we had had more time to stay longer as this is a cute little interesting town and the accomodation was perfect. Will be back.

We stayed in Reefton for two nights at the Lantern Court Motel. The very spacious room was super clean, very well furnished and had central heating. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The only downside was that there was no heating in the bathroom and it was cold.
The owner was very friendly and helpful.
