Lake Brunner Country Motel, Cabins & Campervan Park Moana, Westcoast, 00

Lake Brunner Country Motel, Cottages, Cabin Lodge and Campervan Park, near Moana, is a unique concept on 6 acres of landscaped park like grounds, surrounded by some of the finest West Coast native forest and the South Island Southern Alps as a backdrop. Well suited for your vacation. Selected by National Newspaper the 'Sunday Star Times' as the Best Motel Complex on the West Coast of the South Island for under $200 a night.

Meticulously maintained, fully self-contained, quality accomodation, the timber cottages are positioned for your privacy in a village style setting. They are at ease with the environment, and contribute to a warm and relaxing ambience with no neighbour noise, very peaceful and quiet except for the famous West Coast bird song, including Tui, and Bellbirds.

The new Cabin Lodge and Campervan Park are separate from the cottages with native bush surroundings.

Accommodation is suitable for families, couples, groups, small conferences and weddings, for a "get-away-from-it-all" break on the beautiful West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Alternatively take in the excitement of the many activities to be found in the area - all forms of boating and water sport, walking, or trout fishing in Lake Brunner and in some of the very fine local rivers and streams near the lodge - a vacation for all.

Brown trout fishing is excellent in Lake Brunner, Moana and the surrounding rivers and streams - described as some of the finest brown trout fishing in the world. Lake Brunner and some of the rivers can be fished for trout all year round.

'Winter' trout fishing is very productive. The Lake Brunner area normally has settled warmer winter conditions than many other areas of the South Island.

You are invited to come and experience something special at 'Our Very Special Place'.
