Location obviously superb, Loved the Gorgeous well designed cottage - décor delightful and very practical, blending sensitively with the environment The shower
Great place to stay and relax. The owners went out of their way to help.
Lovely comfortable bed & lovely hot water for shower
Loved the garden very comfortable beds and good showers
Just needed to be aware of the small details ie soap toilet paper etc
Room was well presented. Enjoyed the Out Door Bath while watching the sun set over the Tasman Ocean.
This was a beautiful and romantic spot, with very accommodating owners. Our only regret was that we stayed just one night. The allure of this place is difficult to describe in words but it has a mystique that you will feel.
Fantastic views, friendly staff
The sand flies but that can't be helped!
Warm welcome, friendly owner. Nothing too much trouble. My daughter went on helicopter trip organised by the owner at breakfast as we discussed it with other guests. I would highly recommend the Rata suite. Supper at a shack nearby on the beach was so fresh and tasty, fish caught that day!
Having to leave after only one night!
Thanks a lot for the very nice stay!
Sandflies were not so nice as the guest…they tortured us!
We had difficulty in finding this motel in pouring rain. The address wasn't much help.
The views from our studio were simply amazing. The balcony was an ideal spot to maximise the wonderful viewsof the sea. The interior was spacious and very tastefully designed.
very nice cottage, sea view, nice terrace, parking lot right infront the cottage, very close to pancake rocks
In room facilities and dark sky. The Beach Hut just across the road for excellent fish dinner and reasonable price.
Nothing to dislike.
Lovely deck with view of sea.Very private which was helpful as the bath is outside on the deck....nice to bathe in sunshine with sea view!
Take precautions against sand flies.
Such a beautiful location. We felt like we were the only ones there. Amazing sunset views. Huge room.
I dont think there was anything we didnt like.
Fantastic views. Closeness to pancake rocks.
Fantastic location, set among lush vegetation
Very cosy accomodation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The horse riding was great fun
Nothing to dislike
The cottages clean and tidy, and very private and peaceful. Fantastic views
Quiet and clean.
View lacked a little. You could see the ocean, but frontage of hotel in front was being landscaped. Lack of landscaping detracted from view.
Very quiet, no noise from other chalets. Helpful staff. Free wifi.
Much more basic than we expected, cabin would be more accurate than chalet. Our cabin was small, and had virtually no view of the ocean.
We loved everyhting about our room.. the view, the ammenities, the balcany and also outdoor bath... Owners coould not be nicer and we even renated a BBQ for the nite to have our dinner on the balcany.. also got up and went for the most amazing horse ride through the bush and on to the beach, we will be back
Leaving and also a few of the outdoor bugs got us, but thats what happens when you are outdoors......
Convenient stop between glacier region and Blenheim. Staff helped with cases to first floor apartment, friendly check in. Clean and serviceable everything you needed for a stopover .
Bathroom/toilet was at the opposite end of apartment from bedroom
The proprietor was very helpful with advice on walking and other activities.
Small rocking bed
