Excellent beach view and stunning sunset

Pros: A good stop off on our tour round
Location: some good walks nearby, if you need cash then get in Westport or Greymouth before you come as none here. Only basic shops, cafes and Tavern are good
Stayed one night. Room is basic, but that is reflected in cost. Didn't have a problem grabbing showers as we are early risers. We didn't use the cooking facilities but looked clean and up to date. Staff very friendly and informative.

Hostel close to the beach

Pros: Location and good price for a short stay.
Location: Beach was very close and the Pancake rocks is only a short walk or drive. Tavern was also within walking distance.
Spend the night on the way up to Picton. Hostel staff were friendly and welcoming. Room was basic but comfortable. Nice and close to the beach although due to the weather we couldn't really enjoy it.
