Fodor's Review

This popular, Qualmark 4-star plus motel and holiday park sits in a delightfully peaceful rural setting close to the Matakitaki River, yet just a 10-minute walk from the shops, pubs, and cafés in Murchison. There's something for everyone with a large array of accommodation, from self-contained family motel units to luxury cottages to standard cabins and campsites. Prices range from $20 for a campsite to $225 for the luxury cottages. There's an animal park for the kids, where evening shows of sheep shearing and working farm dogs provide insight into rural life.
