Wow, what a fantastic place to stay overnight, the staff are very friendly, the food is great, and for NZMCA Members, you may phone in and stay overnight. They also have a hot shower and toilets available. For a donation of $20 plus eating in the restaurant sitting in Mary's Corner on a couch, with our drinks, we were very happy. Continue from here just 10km drive up the road to Farewell Spit. Thank you for sharing this special place ❀

After a beautiful track to Wharariki beach, if you are tired and feel hungry, don't wait until you get to Nelson to have some food. Just hop in here. Trust me, the food here is going to blow your mind, probably the price too. But it definitely is worth it! It's a beautiful establishment. The steak is 😍😍, the pizza is mindblowing, and garlic bread😭😭😭😭, it was magical. I'm glad I stopped here for dinner.

A wee gem of a place. Themed Cafe and bar. Food came quickly and was nicely cooked. . Went in the morning for coffee and was so impressed with the place went back later in day for dinner! If you are in the area we'll worth a visit.
