Tui cottage was very clean and well equipped. It had a great heat pump in the lounge.
We thought that the bed was quite hard and could be improved with a topper. We thought it was a bit strange not to see the hosts at all, but maybe that's what other customers want. All in all it was ok.

pleasant enough separate cabins. But why do the pull-out sofa beds have to be so b----- uncomfortable? Good base for going to various adventure activities. Can be very cold at night so extra bedding recommended.

The Riversong Cottages are a fantastic, premium-level luxury accommodation at a very reasonable price, right in the middle of Murchison with just a short walk to the bus station, supermarket, hotel, restaurant, cafe and bakery. Yet at the same time the cottages are in a secluded garden setting where you really do wake up to the peaceful birdsong in the trees. The cottages themselves are luxurious, modern, timber-lined homes with full kitchen facilities including an oven, microwave and all the utensils and facilities you could ever need. They are so comfortable with a full lounge, sofa, table and chairs and large TV with many digital channels. The bedroom is large and comfortable with cosy electric blankets and lots of spare quilts and pillows. And the host is so welcoming and went out of his way to accommodate our late departure the next day... so kind and hospitable! Definitely recommend this as the premium accommodation in Murchison at a very reasonable price and we would go out of our way to stop over here again to enjoy a relaxing stay! Even if you're not doing the adventure activities which Murchison is famous for you'll still have a lovely time staying here with lunch at the cafe or delicious pastries from the bakery. Thanks so much!
Thank trampingbear

Originally planned a 2 night stay but alas there’s not much to do in Murchison this time of the year so we only stayed 1 night. Alexia was a great hostess. The room was clean, well equipped but small. Great place to stay probably at a different time. 👍🏻

This is a small motel in Murchison. My apartment was a studio with microwave for cooking.and small fridge. It was comfortable and quiet and within a two minute walk of the main street. Its location means it is quiet.
