On the plus side there's a superb view; the food in the restaurant is good and the owner is friendly. BUT the room was the standard of a $50 motel with nowhere to sit and watch TV, virtually no kitchen facilities, doors and windows that were worn out and worked with difficulty. The business is for sale and it shows.

Now let's be clear. You want to stay here for the amazing scenery, the isolation and the feeling of being in the wilderness. If you are looking for 5* luxury and fine dining then keep going. Good basic accommodation in the cabin we stayed in, Wifi available at a small charge. Friendly staff and acceptable food.

Not the most salubrious of establishments - basic but very clean, had all the amenities required and was inexpensive. Only stayed one night whilst travelling through Arthurs Pass but would have stayed for longer if needed. Hosts very friendly and welcoming. Do eat in the bar/restaurant - evening meal was absolutely fabulous (have eaten in 5 star and expensive! restaurants...

We had no bookings travelling through Arthurs Pass. In the village itself everything was booked out so we had no choice than to travel on towards the east coast. We stopped at the Bealey and they had a few rooms available. Surprisingly i should say as the location and views are superb. We got a studio with views over the...

We spent two nights in the shared-facilities accommodation as the cabins were booked out. The rooms were spartan and small, but clean and cosy. The shared facilities were not so well-designed or maintained, with only two combined shower/toilets rooms, (one missing locks), and frequent running out of toilet paper and washing liquid. The food however was excellent and value.

When I searched for accommodation in Arthur's Pass National Park, I got the impression that you cannot get a real good one up there if you don't want to pay a fortune. As we obviously didn't intend to do that, we chose Bealey Hotel. Everything was very average - which is probably high standard for this region. All in all...

The old hotel is actually the pub, with the rooms down the hill on a few stairs. The rooms have stunning views of the area, with nothing in the view except a few electricity poles unfortunately. You stay here to be close to the wonderful nature around and that's what you get. As there is nowhere else to eat, we...

Very friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere, delicious cooked meals too. The lodge itself was rather small and basic, but it was clean and did the job. A problem was that it was impossible to get to use the bathroom as there was only one for us all to use. Breathtaking views but no phone reception.

Our stay here was nothing short of exceptional. The hospitality is awesome - from the initial friendly voice when making a phone reservation to the lovely "woffers" helping out around the place. The views are awesome - beautiful river/valley/mountain views. Ok so there are some power lines - but just look in the other direction! The rooms are clean and...
