          Hôtel on the road in the Catlins. Don't expect luxury but decent hotel. Mattress could be better, apart from this everything fine. Rooms are not made up if you stay more than 1 night, and it gets pretty cold during the night inside the room.

          I haven't stayed there yet, but certainly plan to after reading your comments on all the reviews... It is great that you respect your guests enough to acknowledge their views... It was the comments on the review from the grumpy guy from Warwick, UK that 'sold'. your place to me.. I admire anyone who states the truth and doesn't resort to cliches when criticised.. It is my husband's 60th later this year..and both our sons are Dunedinites who want to take him to The Catlins/Stuart Island.
