We stayed here for one night after biking the Old Ghost Road - we expected it just to be somewhere to get a good sleep before heading further south the next day and ended up wishing we were staying longer!

David and Susanna are fantastic hosts. They were warm, chatty and enthusiastic and made us feel instantly welcome, even making us a cup of (much needed) tea.

Our room was super clean and really comfortable, tucked away at the top of the sort of 'complex' of buildings. The view in the morning was over the sea, really tranquil. The kitchen had everything we could have needed and the common area was fantastic. The bathroom facilities were also clean, regularly checked and had plenty of water.

Look out for the glow worms if you walk up from the car park at night!

This is truly a lovely and memorable place to stay whilst on the West Coast. The lounge, kitchen and dining area is comfortable and warm with amazing views over the ocean. David and Susanna are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to assist you. Even though you have a ten minute walk to the accommodation from the road, do not let this deter you from staying at the Old Slaughterhouse. Your bags are carried up to the house by quad bike. Do take a torch to help light your way to the bathrooms at night. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay there again.

Super chilled out place with a good vibe to it. David and Susanna are very lovely hosts and the facilities were clean, kitchen fully equipped.
Cozy lounge, stunning views, glowworms and shooting star.

Clean, tidy, confortable, well equipped accommodation. Very friendly hosts. Totally recommended.
Note :
1) 10 min somewhat steep walk from the car park, but bags are carried.
2) no toilets in units.

But don't let that put you off. It's a perfect place to chill out.

On our way from Franz Joseph Glacier to Abel Tasman, we decided to make a detour to the old slaughterhouse after seeing pictures of the place on the internet. We are so glad we went there, common area and bedroom were stunning, built in wood (by the owner!), with an amaizing view to the Tasman sea. The hosts were very nice and helpful, and they have such an interesting life story! The 10min climbing walk to arrive didn't bother us and David was there to take the luggages with the quad if needed. We stayed one night but we would have loved to stay more. One of the most beautiful and special places we saw, we definitely recommend it!
