Highly recommended by Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, DuMont and Peti Futé. Voted best small lodge in BBH survey 2004/2014.
Unique hydro-powered lodge 100m above the Tasman Sea. Ready access to beautiful beaches, rivers and walks. A place to contemplate. Self-catering (no breakfast provided). Due to its location the lodge is not suitable for children under 5 years of age.
The Old Slaughterhouse is a self-catering lodge and offers comfortable and affordable accommodation. Our rooms are simple but cosy and made up with linen, pillows, duvets and hot-water bottle (if needed) are provided.
All rooms are surrounded by a large deck from which you can enjoy stunning views and sunsets over the Tasman Sea.
Our facilities include:
•Two double rooms: Comfortable double beds, made up with linen, duvets and pillows.
•One shared room: The shared room contains three fully made up single beds and can also be booked as a twin room
•Shared bathroom facilities (2 showers, 2 toilets)
•Space for tents
•Hammocks for you to snooze and relax
•Large collection of music for you to listen to
Our spacious kitchen is fully equipped, there are two gas hobs and an oven available, lots of pots and pans, crockery, cutlery and of course a fridge but no microwave.
Tea and coffee is available at any time and from time to time there will be some homebaking in the kitchen, which means all you'd need to bring is your own food.

We live on the premises and will be available for any questions that our guests may have about most things, e.g. the hostel, activities in the surrounding area (bushwalks, swimming, fishing, caving, mountain biking, etc.)
All our water comes from a spring here on the property and we use a mini-hydro system to generate our electric energy. This limits the use of electric powered utensils and as a result you won't find e.g. microwave ovens, hairdryers or a washing mashine here.
We are cooking with gas, our fully equipped kitchen has two gas hobs and one gas oven and we heat the lodge with driftwood from the beach.
The only power points are in the main logde, where you can recharge your cell phone. It's worth to mention that there is also no WiFi available at the lodge.
The Old Slaughterhouse truly is a place where you can – and should – just switch off and relax.
The lodge does not have rules. All we wish for from our guests is, that they respect what we are trying to achieve here, and their respect of other guests.
