James and Pauline Gold welcome you to Helensborough Motor Inn Motel. We are the first motel in Balclutha from the north as you head down the hill to cross the Clutha River into the town centre. Start your Catlins Coast adventure by relaxing in our motel where we can help make your trip a lasting memory.

We are within 3 minutes' drive of the golf course, bowling club, Information Centre and gym. Balclutha is the gateway to the Southern Scenic Route and we are happy to advise you on the best way to explore this paradise. You can also make this your base to explore Dunedin and Central Otago.
