We had a great stay here, we just rang Kay to know about rates... We were able to sleep in our campervan use the facilities, the building is the old post office it is old but yes but the details are fun to look at. We could leave our van here which was being watched while we were on Stewart Island for two days. We ended up staying another night when we came back. It's probably the best place to stay in Bluff and totally fair price. We will be back!


I'm Hungry

We had a strange experience here. We called Kay (who is lovely) from Curio Bay to enquire about sleeping in our van. She was very welcoming so we drove all the way only to find a party going on in the little parking we were meant to sleep in. Kay said they would wrap up by 10 so we paid and she went home. There was a lot of alcohol and it kept getting louder. We went for a spin around town hoping the party would finish but unfortunately had to drive off to Riverton at 10:30pm as it was impossible to sleep or even stay there. Should not have invited us or not let a party happen at the parking. The facilities in general were very basic and not quite confident about the hygiene level of of the kitchen & bathroom. Definitely quirky but we did not find it clean

We called the hostel and Kay, the manager answered. Such a lovely lady who loves Bluff! She offered parking in the rear of the lodge at a very very fair rate. It is a gated car park and literally across from the ferry port. Would stay here again!
