Overall- a really good spot to stay when visiting Abel Tasman and Golden Bay. Facilities were clean, bed was comfy, and there was an awesome deck to hangout on with a BBQ.


Big clean showers. Comfortable surroundings. Would definitely stay again.


Great hostel, very clean, quiet and chilled. Spa pool is cool. Perfect base to explore abel tasman national park from.


Really nice place split into houses. Homely feel and a good atmosphere. Communal kitchen/living room with TV and sofas was a good way to break the ice. Only one shower for about 12 people but we were up early enough to beat the rush. Just down the road from the town centre. Would definitely recommend it!


The lodge was lovely. The roaring fire was perfect for the evening. The staff were really helpful. Mixed toilet and shower block left something to be desired.
