We stayed in the room with the safe bathroom. Had a wonderful time in this small town. Lots of history. The cottage was well located right in the centre of the town. Breakfast was great. Do yourself a favour and stop here you won't regret it

Stayed here on our way from Queenstown to Abel Tasman. The room was gorgeous: well-appointed, tall ceilings, skylight, new sparkling bathroom with plush towels. The hosts made a delicious breakfast in the morning, sending us on our way happy and well-caffeinated. Would have loved to stay longer!

Upon arrival we were a little apprehensive from the outside! However, this quirky exterior (and to some extent, interior) belied a welcome experience! The bedroom was clean with a very comfortable bed and a great recently refurbished bathroom with quality amenities. Breakfast was generous and smoked bacon to die for! The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. Only slight downside...

The boyfriend and I stayed here for one night between Westport and Murchison and found this B&B as charming as everyone has said! The town of Reefton is basically a one horse kind of town (no stoplights to speak of) and while breakfast and lunch have lovely options don't expect much for dinner in these parts. The hotel is a...

Stopped over for a night with my wife, while travelling to Nelson. Reefton is a lovely quaint town, with plenty of pubs, restaurants etc. The Rose room was not large, but very cosy and clean with a newly refurbished ensuite decorated in a wet-room style. I would recommend another room if you have a lot of luggage, but cannot fault...

Lovely old fashioned furniture with modern bathrooms, heated towel rails. Bed was to die for with electric blankets. Small outside sitting area. Look for the old light switches in the halls and bedrooms. First bedrooms bathroom door...

We stopped in Reefton to go rafting on the beautiful untouched Grey River with Nathan at Inland Adventures and stayed at Reef Cottage B&B (family - 2 adults, 2 children). It is a beautifully renovated house with 4 rooms (each with its own bathroom,TV etc) and a shared living/kitchen area. Very clean, quite, warm and comfortable. Highly recommend staying here...
