Very basic room with limited power points, but we managed with our own adapters. Nice complimentary breakfast. We were allowed to park at the hotel for our one-night stay at Stewart Island, and the ferry is only minutes walk away.

Fabulous hotel and owners
This is a great old hotel run by a delightful couple. The meals in the dining room are wonderful. A great place to stay before or after Stewart Island.

Bluff Work Trip
Normally stay in Invercargill when down that way on business, but upon arrival, found Invercargill was fully booked out! But found this little Hotel across the road from where i was working in Bluff so it all worked out well. Quite a dated Hotel, but rooms was clean and tidy, and no kitchenette in rooms but a communal lounge with coffee making facilities was there.

Charming hotel but lacking customer focus
The hotel is a lovely old building, partly refurbished with old world charm. Fortunately we had booked the balcony room which was reasonably large but other rooms may not be as spacious. It’s conveniently located close to the ferry terminal for the trip to Stewart Island. They were short staffed so little assistance was offered, fortunately we’re quite self sufficient but the manager was helpful enough when asked. There’s a good fish and chip shop next door. Breakfast was adequate. You had to go to a communal lounge for tea/coffee but no milk supplied.

Fair 4.0
Cheap and friendly stop over
The information says TV in room, there isn't. Their own website suggests perfect romantic getaway, it isn't, it's a bit tired and the view from the balcony room is the side of an industrial unit (see photo). Having said that, if you want a cheap stop over, it's extremely friendly and welcoming, and it's clean. The food in the restaurant was delicious, although being the only couple eating it had no atmosphere and I wish we'd gone out to eat like the others staying in the hotel at the time.

Good basic room in Bluff
An older hotel run by a friendly American expat. We had a room with an ensuite. Pretty basic but comfortable. Lounge across the hall had coffee and tea making equipment, a long couch and a large screen TV. Breakfast was fruit, cereal, toast, coffee and tee. We picked it because it was close to the Stewart Island ferry. She allowed us to leave our car while on the island for two nights. Very nice! Easy two block walk to the terminal.
