A great little place to stop. A lot of road noise but it didn’t bother me. Friendly manager. $15 for one person inc shower, $3 shower if you want to stay elsewhere. Kitchen has everything you need.

Excelent place to rest, a little bit noisy but it's really good place. The owners are very kind! Nice and clean kitchen and toilets. The showers are very nice because they're unlimited! We paid 24 per night for a tent with my girlfriend.

Old but clean and well working facilities. Close to the road but some worry about road noises, as we slept well.

We stopped here for shower before heading Kaikoura from Christchurch. Hot shower just for $3 per person. Owner is kind and friendly, easy going guy. Toilet is clean and basic kitchen is available too.

$24 for two of us with hot showers provided. Fully functional kitchen (no toaster?). Great value for money, quiet spot, occasional traffic noise as it is next to the road........not bad at all.
