Buscot Station Omarama: "Excellent hostel in Mackenzie country, New Zealand" New Zealand Hotel Tip by ChristinaHegele

New Zealand Hotels: 302 reviews and 273 photos

Buscot Station is a working sheep and cattle station, situated in Mackenzie country, close to Omarama. On arrival you can’t help but notice the beautiful roses and the huge, well-tended garden as you drive up to the homestead.
The main house is essentially the owner Tony’s home and holds more bathrooms and private rooms. He shares his lovely kitchen, dining room, living room and veranda with all travelers, providing guests with a home-stay experience, not just with a warm bed and shower.

Unique Qualities: Tony is really kind, attentive and friendly, and you will feel welcome and well cared for from the moment you enter his home. The charming living room is full of pictures, antiques, books and DVDs.
The dormitory is in a separate building, has 10 or so good quality, single beds all made up, and includes a small bathroom. The spacious room is clean, nicely decorated, and no two beds are the same. I am normally not a fan of big dorm rooms, but this one has such an eclectic and homey flair and is actually very pleasant to stay in.
If you want a truly personal experience out in the country, choose Tony’s place. He really loves what he does, taking care of his land and sharing his property, and has a genuine interest in his traveling guests. What results from that is great company and outstanding hospitality in beautiful surroundings.
