Haast Lodge Motor Park. A basic area to park up your caravan or Motor home on a shingle area, which is necessary when they have very heavy rain in this area. Amenities are across a car park a little way from camp sites, but are adequate.

Double Room. Quiet clean excepted for the kitchen. Building beautiful and large but old and not well-maintained. Kitchen too small. Shower : 50 cents coin for 6 minutes (only one include per day and per person for the price it’s a shame). No Free Unlimited Wifi.

As this was pretty much the only place to stay in Haast we didn't have high expectations. However this is a relatively new building which offers clean and modern facilities. We were also surprised that along with a few tourists, many New Zealand people actually stay here on route or as part of their holidays (which is a good thing!)....

We were pleasantly surprised by a warm, family atmosphere. Rooms are just everything you need, showers are kept clean as well as the shared lounge well equipped for cooking. The staff/owners are always very helpful, giving you advices on what to visit in this area, providing you an extra blanket during a chilly night, or patiently answering questions of the...

People at reception are very friendly and helpful. We loved great spacious lounge room with comfy sofas and armchairs, where you can relax and watch the TV or use WiFi (paid). Kitchen is fully equipped with fridge and enough tools/dishes for all guests. Rooms and bathrooms were perfectly clean and shower was hot. Surrounded with beautiful views of the mountains,...

Nice and handy to CBD of Haast. 😊 Nice cooking and common room areas. Awesome showers, although they are coin operated for hot water, but host provided the first coins for free. WiFi is limited, and is extra cost. Hard Antler bar is close by, but food is very expensive there. Enjoyed our stay. Ensure you have insect repellant available...

Welcomed by the buzzer/ horn that goes every 30 minutes or so, you'll feel right at home here! That is, if your home was prison for the last couple of years! Or a freezer for that matter!! An iglo feels warm compared to the shared room/ kitchen! Showers are 50ct/ 7min (which are actually quite nice) and wifi costs 3...

Having read a few grim reviews we were pleasantly surprised at how good the motel was. Large room, excellent kitchen facilitiesand couldn't really find any significant fault. Would certainly recommend it, despite having to pay $5 for internet access. Beware of the sand flies - and there is no mobike phone reception!

Stayed on our way to Wanaka after doing Franz Josef in our campervan. Kids liked the cute rabbit in the car park. No playground but wonderful large warm lounge to spread out and relax in, perfect after being cramped in our van on a cold wet day. The kids appreciated the box of toys in the lounge. We didn't use...

We stayed on our way from Queenstown to the glaciers and had our first meeting with the dreaded sandflies....not the fault of the campsite...but please be prepared! The site is really a car park, but the communal kitchen and sitting area makes up for it. Big room, encourages conversation...good cooking facilities. Receptionist at the time from Wales where we come...
