Stop for one night at Catlins area we chose this lodge. It was really nice stay, very good spacious room with triple comfy beds, and very quiet at night for really decent sleep. The shared bathrooms and toilet were clean and good. The shared kitchen was OK with some kitchen stuff available, next to the dining table and living room with TV, sofa and some brochures and books, the deck outside is good for sitting and enjoy the landscape and the bay at the distance. Location is at walking distances to the CurioSpace and Petrified Forest, all good.

Date of stay: December 2019

Great base for Catlins exploration. Walk to Curioscape and Petrified Forest with wildlife on your doorstep. Small rooms but nice garden w3ith big bathroom and kitchen. Like staying with mates. Pushpinder was magic on the front desk!

Good location, right on the beach with a change to see sea lions.
Reasonable prize for nz accommodation.
We where alone, so there was no other travelers.
They have everything you need like kitchen stuff, fridge etc.

The whole place needs some serious uplifting. The beds were terrible and the sheets were smelling. The fridge has stuff rotting. The one things I don’t understand in NZ is everything is expensive but the quality of things are just bare. The location is very good.

Hi

That is very disappointing, and unacceptable. I will discuss this with my staff.
