We stopped to ask for help from the owner, when we discovered we had forgotten all our tramping food for the Queen Charlotte Track 5 day walk. We could not have happened on a kinder and more helpful man, who not only supplied us with items from their store, but even raided the Restaurant larder to make sure we had...

We stayed in the Tui chalets for two nights. No it isn't the cheapest place and probably not the best backpacker option. However, the grounds are lovely and so are the Tui chalets. We loved sleeping to the sound of the waves at night, and the chalet was situated so that it felt completely private and we could leave the...

We Stopped in here for some lunch and supplies while on the Queen Charlotte track. Where we dined in the Cafe and purchased some items from the Store. While the food was excellent, one of our orders was forgotten and we had to remind the staff about the order after two of the three of us had already finished our...

The food was amazing and the packed lunch for our long day of walking was the best for the duration of our walk. Loved the service and the smiles. Very happy here with the comfiest of beds. They even had a heated towel rack!

My Mum and I were walking the Queen Charlotte Track and stopped in here for one night on the 27th to start our journey. The service you guys provided was amazing. We were welcomed so warmly and the food in the restaurant was to die for. I'll be telling everyone I know to visit you.

We stayed here overnight after our second day of walking on the Queen Charlotte Track. The location was stunning and our chalet was nestled in among the trees on the hill. The room was cute and comfortable. It is quite expensive although that's not surprising given the remote location. Dinner was very good although expensive also. Staff were friendly and...

Punga Cove is one of those resorts that has something special about it. Some of the apartments are a bit tired and the new ones are quite expensive but the backpackers is an absolute bargain provided you sleep soundly or have ear plugs. The resort is on a hill side so its steep paths to negotiate. The bar/cafe at the...

We stayed in an A frame chalet which had wonderful views. This was night two walking the Queen Charlotte track. Sitting relaxing at the bar by the jetty was fun - watching boats coming and going. We might have had a bad selection at the restaurant for dinner, but my advice is don't get a salad. We wanted a light...

First of all one star is given due the fact the location is amazing, but aside from that, the staff are shocking and very rude, I have never felt so unwelcome staying somewhere in NZ. And then the fact it was 155 a night for a room that was substandard nothing flasher than a typical $30 backpackers. Restaurant is also...
