All I can say is don't stay here! Only positives, friendly lady on reception and extremely quiet. Room was large but needs some money spending on it. Bed was comfy but had some weird fluff stuff all over pillows and one side of the bed. Carpet needs cleaning - think it was infested with fleas or something as my ankles...

Booked a Queen Room with Private BR at $20 more per night then others with shared BR's. On arrival no Private rooms left so given outer building with 3 rooms and LR and Kitchen but two shared BR's. No one else there so we took it but the place is quite old and smelled musty. No price allowance for the...

Original 1900s cottages, tastefully decorated and maintained. To stay in one of these is to share in the proud deep past of Reefton. Very comfortable beds, soft linen and spacious rooms. Cottage style kitchens and clean bathrooms.

What a quaint little place to stay. It's not flash is if you like hotel chain style accommodation you won't like this. Our family of seven were very comfortable, the showers were great, the fire place was awesome as it was a little cool in the evening for us Brisbanites. Walking distances to the shops. Value for money was good...

A renovated villa off Broadway in Reefton. Lovely rooms with comfy bed and ensuite. A shared common room and kitchen with a coal fire. Nice the older style furniture and fireplaces. Good heating. The kind hosts brought over my dinner and breakfast for me from the Alfresco Eatery. Very homely and warm. Great to recharge.

I can give it 3 stars only because very friendly staff . I would not stay here if I knew before. My personal opinion it is better to find another 50 $ and rent a nice room in a more expensive hotel or just save the money and camp with a tent, than pay 90$ for a room like that....

Myself and a friend returned home on Monday after one month touring New Zealand. This was the only accommodation we were disappointed with. The rooms were tired looking. Although the bathroom was clean, the kitchen was not a place you would want to prepare food in, and the cupboards full of cobwebs. Although our sheets were clean the rest of...

When booking accommodations with this business, be careful and aware that you may have to share the kitchen and bathroom. Sounds like they have had problems with other guests that day being unhappy with room arrangement and advertising information. Check before booking. Otherwise clean accommodation.

We try to price accordingly, with our top rooms ensuite at 125.00 -95.00 (for 2 people)and our classic rooms 95.00-80.00....
