8/10 Very good

The location is very good if you’re taking the ferry to Oban. It’s a 5 minute walk. The room we were on was hot and a fan would have made it more comfortable. But the owner/manager was very nice and offered us parking for a day while we were in Stewart Island.

Foveaux Hotel In Bluff
Our stay here was excellent. The ambience was retro with a comfortable home-like feel. Ample space in the lounge to stretch out and watch tv or read a book and the dining area was lovely. The room was a fair size and it was lovely having a private balcony. Our hosts were beyond gracious and went above and beyond in ensuring our stay was perfect. And the house cat Oliver was friendly and fun. There was a takeaway place next door for lunch and it was a short walk down the street to an excellent restaurant for evening dinner. Close to the dock and a small beach and a very short walk to the lighthouse and then a trail walk. Overall our stay was wonderful and we will definitely stay here again if we ever in Bluff again.

Friendly family run hotel
Friendly and accommodating hosts. Mike and Pam were very welcoming and helpful. Very comfortable beds. Great location close to the ferry terminal and 30 minutes walk to Stirling Point. Supermarket 2 minutes walk, excellent fish and chip shop right next door.

6/10 Good

Owners doing their best. Cold miserable day on arrival & all just seemed a bit bleak. Big thing was no dinner available at nite. Previous reviews praised the meals highly so no word that unavailable when I booked - very disappointing. Bed cosy, heater in room, didn’t like hearing people using toilet in night (must hv been next to my room). Kind owner carried suitcase up stairs & offered me to leave car parked behind hotel. A very basic help yourself breakfast included. Felt very safe, just pretty ordinary for price.
