  • Pounawea Grove Motel was perfect for our stay in the Catlins. A small complex of 4 units just across the road from the water & so peaceful. Our unit was lovely & clean & had everything we needed. Only $140 dollars per night but the room was still serviced daily. Nice bathroom & shower had great pressure. Walking distance to the 2 lovely walk trails in town. highly recommend. 4

  • The most beautiful self contained room. The whole thing was put together so thoughtfully. The bed was so incredibly comfortable and came with electric blankets! The toiletries in the bathroom were lovely and the size of the bathroom was fantastic! The verandah is lovely to sit on and watch the water. The kitchen had exactly everything I needed to cook a fairly simple pasta meal but it was just stress free. The host was very nice and quite tuned in to my mood when I arrived and didn't push anything just let me go on my way which I really appreciated. The free wifi was amazing considering there wasn't much phone reception around! I can't recommend this place highly enough I loved every minute I spent there. 5

  • The motel was very nice. Just a bit of feedback about local eateries as these were mentioned in the motel guide in our room - we ended up at the local pub as the other restaurants were closed. The pub food was absolutely awful - basically just burgers and chips. The "blue cod burger" was not available as they were out and not expecting more supplies until April !!!!! Fish in extreme short supply down south lol !!!! 4

  • This is a little gem of a motel if you are looking for somewhere to relax overlooking a nice quiet bay. Conveniently located for places such as Nugget Point and a starting off point for The Catlins. The owner, Anne, is most welcoming and informative. And she went out of her way to contact us after we had left to let us know we had left a Kindle behind which she then packaged carefully and forwarded on to us. 5

  • Dear Shelley & Bailey, I should have checked out the property before my brother & nephew arrived. They missed a towel, a cup, a toilet brush and a light bulb. It would be a shame if one couldn't recommend a good accommodation in such a great location. I am sure you can improve on your service. Regards, Dr Smita Apte 3
    SMITA APTE - Feb 14, 2012 (Stayed Feb 2012) Travelbug verified review
  • Hi Smita, Thanks for the feedback and comments on our great location & accommodation. We regret the inconveniences you mention above and hope your brother and nephew's stay was great after these things were attended to. The room did have the normal amount of towels on arrival. 2 x bath towels 2 x face cloths 1 x bath mat and 1 x hand towel - not sure why they needed another hand towel, although another hand towel and a cup (which was missing) was provided immediately anyway. The light bulb was blown during the stay (something that can happen from time to time) and was replaced immediately. We are sorry about the toilet brush not being in the bathroom, sometimes they are removed to be cleaned/ sanitized, but this was also provided once bought to our attention. We will be more careful to check the rooms have everything they need from now on and these small things will be in the rooms. Kind regards Bailey & Shelley
