I stayed here for 1 night while attending a funeral in Reefton. The host, Malcolm was very welcoming & helpful when I arrived. The units are a tad older but more than adequate for the price per night. They were clean, warm & cozy with a fully equipped kitchen, TV & lazy-boy chairs, just like home! I had 3 duvets on my bed as well as an Electric Blanket so great for a 'cold old frog' like me! Great hot water supply to the shower. When travelling I always request a quiet place, The unit I had was close to the roadside but very quiet & sunny. After staying there several people also suggested the Bellbird Motels. Thanks Malcolm.

Stayed one night en route to ferry and wish we had had time to stay longer. This quiet motel has rather dated decor but very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and plenty of space, very clean and good shower. Very helpful owner. Reefton is a quirky little town with excellent i-site. Reef Cottage cafe has delicious food. Interesting friendly people, galleries, antique shops, pubs.

The motel was pretty old, but it has everything we needed. Each unit was stand-alone. Big space. Carport. Quiet. No problem with the shower and the water pressure. Room was serviced Everyday. The owner was very nice to talk to. We were there for 3 days -mountain biking. You can ride from the motel to all the bike tracks (eg: Big River, Blacks Point etc) around Reefton.

Very, very clean. Decor somewhat dated but did not matter in the slightest. Motel unit was very roomy and really well-equipped, especially the kitchen. No short cuts taken. Really friendly owners. A real gem!

Came down with my partner who was staying for work for around 6 weeks. So a cheap and reliable place to stay was key. He came here last year for the same thing and enjoyed it that much that he returned. Great service great host. We had the cottage which is a two bedroom house as i also had my two young kiddies. Walking distance to school, kindy, shops and a beautful river just outside the door. We were well looked after with the weekly offer of a service which i kindly told him not to worry about, he still asked me what we needed regularly. And always asked if all was good. Friendly, helpful, approachable and a hardworker, always busy with wee bits of maintenance, I take my hat off to you malcom 🎩, if i could give you more stars i would 😊 cheers for an awesome stay. No doubt well be back again.
