Rosesrred”

We had a lovely stay at Haast River Holiday Park in a lovely cabin which was so clean and inviting. We didn't have cooking facilities but there was a wonderful camp kitchen with 3 BBQs which we made good use of. Just a tip: Close the unscreened windows on dusk as we had a room with lots of mosquitoes in it that we had to get rid of before we went to sleep. Other than that, it was a great room and I would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation just a very short 3klm drive out of Haast.

Friendly and helpful service. Cleanliness. Laundry facilities good.

Enjoyed our stay there. Service was fantastic. Lady at reception, Tania was very helpful and went that extra mile to help my sister get internet on her phone. While the Holiday park is a little out of the way, there was a lot of shelf food, knickknacks and lovely souvernirs to choose from.

Small, clean room with all essentials. Good for stay”

Doesn't have a restaurant, but there is a restaurant very close to it so no real issue. Not many hotels in the area so not essentially a bad place to stay. Haast doesn't have much activity around it so wouldn't need a long stay, and from that point of view this place is good for overnight/short stay while on a longer trip

Give this one a miss unless unavoidable”

Room clean, well appointed

The room was fine, staff not very friendly, but the worst aspect was he shower. Quite possibly the worst shower I've ever had At a motel. There was no recess, just a depression in the floor which didn't stop water from overflowing to all parts of the bathroom, and a simple shower curtain. The shower head was terrible, it either emitted water like a hose or not at all. Not a lot of accomodation in haast however. The local pub , called "frontier..." Was superb. Must try the shanks, and sit by the open fire. It's worth it.

Good accomodation .Shame no private cooking facilities”

The motel rooms are excellent.Immaculately clean and the best shower we have experienced in NZ.The description stated the room had a kitchenette.Every description of a kitchenete states it must have a facility to heat food be it a microwave or hotplate.This establishment has neither in the rooms.Cooking is done in a hangar type building which is communally shared.This was a let down for us.Pots and pans also have to be rented. The other let down was the very rude attitude of the man on reception when I asked about the kitchen facilities.He clearly had missed the last term at the Charm School. Disappointing as the rooms in themselves were lovely.

Beautiful Rooms, Terrible Staff”

We arrived late (well not really, at around 9pm), the staff left a note on the reception door with instructions to drive around to park the car. Seeing that the room was accessible from where we were, I went upstairs to check if I could access the room from the front. I saw a key on the table as the note said, but the door was locked. So I went down to the reception and made a call to the reception to check if there was a mistake made in the door being locked. The reply I got was rude and harsh. It went "something like Do you not understand English? Can't you read the instructions and drive around like the note said?". My friend at that instant was reversing the car nearer to the stairs so that we could carry our luggages up easier. There was a lawn in between the stairs and the car which we had NO INTENTION of driving into. Somehow the host thought that we were idiots and said "what are you doing?? Please DO NOT drive onto the lawn!" That was obviously not our intention. Later on, we realised that there was a backdoor on the second floor which wasn't locked. We should have followed the instructions on the note, but this is certainly no way to treat your customers, especially after a long 4 hour drive from our previous location. Despite this, I have to say the rooms were beautiful and well-stocked. If not for the terrible service, I would definitely return to this beautifully located accommodation.
