Balclutha, the largest town in the Clutha area which has limited accommodation options and Highway Lodge Motel is very conveniently located within a 5-minute stroll of cafes, supermarkets, restaurants and shops. All this in a friendly country town where people say hi to each other and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of the town.

Location of the motel is a very important to its success and growth and Highway Lodge Motel is situated on SHW1 on the left-hand side heading south. A relaxing reserve area beside the motel brings that country vibe to the location as well. A selection of shops is conveniently across the road, or a leisurely 5-minute stroll into the town centre.

Catlins. This wooded, wild coastal corner is the most unsung of South Island regions and Balclutha township is the turnoff to the northern end of this stunning part of the country, where people come to visit from all around New Zealand and the world. They often say I must return for another longer stay.

Derek Johnson

Derek joined Coffeys in April 2021. He decided to step up to the plate and help other moteliers & accommodation business operators buy or sell their properties after the challenging year of COVID 19. 

Derek brings with him over 18 years’ experience in the hospitality and tourism industry. Managing and owning businesses has been particularly important to him. He owned and operated a large rural hotel for 10 years prior to leasing a successful & highly profitable 19 unit motel in Wanaka (pre-Covid) with his wife Crystal. They have done extensive work on upgrading & modernising the interiors. Also, a lot of effort has gone into landscaping & improving/upgrading outdoor facilities such as the playground. He is very fond of his roses found throughout the property.

His role as the local publican gave him a variety of experiences with the public and within the community, such as sponsorship for all the main local sports teams. Derek loves to chat to people.

SO YES. Derek knows how to market your property and importantly, he also understands how you run your business. Let him help you get the result that you want. Derek says he chose to come to Coffeys as he believes in the brand and their ethics. 

Travelling regularly from Wanaka to Dunedin to see his daughter, filling his time in there with projects around the holiday home – although he is not too sure when the ‘holiday’ part starts. His interests are hiking and sports – any kind! Rugby and cricket (which he loved to play), being his favourites. Family time is most important to him.
