I popped in for one night and loved it here! If I didn't have to keep moving I would have definitely stayed another night. Very lovely family who operate the motel, lovely clean room with a good heater to defrost, TV and kitchenette. Highly recommend!

This small (four bedroom units) B&B/motel run on family lines for families is so well located, very quiet, only a few steps to one of Golden Bay's iconic beaches. The historic villa has been tastefully converted into a B&B, while retaining much of its character and comfortably sized rooms. Owned and managed by a lovely family who discretely look after...

"A Real Gem" Nice comment Neil and we totally agree with you on that one. Colliingwood is certainly remote and thats half the beauty of this area. Wharariki Beach and Farewell Spit are certainly a must visit.

A wonderful place to spend a relaxing time in a beautiful scenic part of NZ. The motel itself has been very tastefully renovated maintaining the integrity of its interesting history. The hosts were warm and welcoming and ensured that we had a comfortable stay. Great parking, handy to all amenities and it was refreshing to be given free wifi access....

This place is great. It has great staff, good wifi, lovely rooms with lots of facilities, good car parking, a few eating places nearby and the scenery is fantastic. It's a bit hard to reach since one has to drive over a pretty spectacular mountain pass to get to it, but once you are there there is a fair amount...

Lovely old building which has been sympathetically turned into two studio units in the front of the house itself, plus two self-contained cottages in the garden. We had the larger studio unit for four nights, which, because it has a dining room, made it more comfortable for more than just a night. With a bit of ingenuity we cooked our...

The proprietors were friendly hosts, and they could not have been more obliging when we were much delayed reaching Collingwood. The accommodation was immaculate. They also went to the trouble of posting an item that one of our party left in the room.
