Some history about Reef Cottage. The Cottage was built in 1887 from native rimu timber for local Barrister, Patterson and Son (hence the vault room). We bought Reef Cottage and the two properties next to it in 1995.

Reef Cottage Cafe has been renovated into Victorian style in 2001 this is where the buffet and cooked breakfast is served for our Bed & Breakfast guests. The cafe is open to the public during the day for lunch (evening dining is seasonal).
Reef Cottage Bed and Breakfast has some special features. The vault ensuite is a particular favourite room, with the large vault being renovated into an ensuite.
The Queen Suite has its own private lounge and ensuite claw foot bath and shower.
The entire four-bedroom cottage can be booked by private parties.
Reef Cottages private patio leads off the kitchen and into the garden which follows down to the Inangahua River 100m away. The Inagahua River is a great place to trout spot and fish and to walk along the River bank.
Reef Cottage is located between Victoria Forrest Park and Paparoa National park providing access to over 200 kilometres of trout fishing rivers surrounding Reefton. Guests can also enjoy exploring the historic Gold fields, tramping trails, mountain biking and taking scenic tours and four wheel-drive treks. Reeftons central location in the West Coast makes Reef Cottage an ideal base for day trips to Murchison, Westport, Punakaiki, Greymouth, South Westland and Hanmer Springs.
