Good accommodation with real helpful people looking after the place. So friendly they even brought in our washing when we were late getting back. I'd recommend this as good value accomodation and a fantastic base to visit the Catlins. We would stay again.

We loved staying at the Nugget View and Kaka Point Motel: a lovely experience also because of the lovely owners, they provided us with lots of useful advices on the area. The motel offers well furnished units with large windows on the ocean. Units include a kitchen and a big bathroom with spa. In the morning, because of the stormy...

We stayed in January - found staff very helpful and the rooms comfy. Everything you need for eating in or out. Warm, quiet and dry. Very nice spa bath in the bathroom. Great place to view penguins and seals right on the beach. Very nice restaurant just down the road.

Rooms have everything you need - we were in unit 11 and all facilities were in good order. We found staff very helpful on check in, giving us a really good map of the area and ideas of places to see which was really useful! Kitchen includes hob, microwave, sink and fridge, with dishwashing liquid also provided. The free wifi...

We stayed in a luxury unit. We enjoyed watching the ocean/sky change as the bad weather moved in and enjoyed looking out at the lighthouse. The windows are very large and so it was nice to look out at the water while we ate dinner and breakfast. It was quite nice to relax in the spa bath after a bush...

We stayed for one night in a 2 bedroom apartment. The spacious apartment was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The owner gave tips on when and where to spot the yellow-eyed penguins. We managed to see 2 penguins just before dawn. But don’t expect a close encounter. You have to stay in the hide which is located...

I can't understand a couple of the most recent, horrible reviews here and to make matters worse, I accidently gave one a helpful 'thumbs up' vote, and couldn't work out how to remove it. Grrrrr !! As Kiwis at least should know, The Catlins is a pretty remote, wild and woolly location, far removed from large city sophistication, which is...

The price very much dictates the quality. This was a low range price-wise but he rooms were clean and provided everything we needed. The owner has a good sense of humour and took as good as he gave. Would stay again at this price.

I have travelled the world and every corner of our beautiful country .. I've never come across a more rude and selfish old man like this proprietor. Upon arrival he expressed his displeasure at being busy at "his age" The rooms were outdated and multiple items missing. We stayed during the night of the Kaikoura earthquakes, we were up that...

Upon arrival the host expressed unhappiness in being busy; he didn't like that he had to work. The quality of everything in the unit was very poor. From the blunt serrated knife to the awquard bathroom layout the place was a bad set back in time and quality. After spending a turmultuous night communicating with effected family members of the...
