We stayed at the first floor level which gave us a large deck space outside the room which was pleasant to utilize the table and chairs. The room was nicely furnished with a large spar in the room and great comfortable lounge chairs. Nice large TV and excellent other fittings

We stayed in the studio unit for two nights because we were going on the Pelorus Mail-boat. We were shown to our unit which was considerably better than being just given the key. The room was very nice with facilities to make a light meal and breakfast. The outdoor area looked a great spot for the warmer weather but unfortunately... More

We stayed for one night, mid-June. An excellent accommodation, especially the Scottish lady on reception! She was delightful, what a wonderful welcome! Definitely the best welcome we have encountered anywhere (and we are fairly well-travelled). The room was lovely and the property is very nicely set-out, including a beautiful rockery fishpond. The bed was very comfortable and there was actually... More

We stayed here and all three rooms hired were great. Fantastic hot tub and pool area. Rooms all clean and nice comfortable beds. All in all great stay with friendly helpful staff. Did enjoy small extras like biscuits and good coffee.

Stayed here for one night when passing through. The most exciting thing about this place was the homemade cookies they have on the reception desk for guests to try. They were yummy and I thought this was a nice touch. Staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were ok, clean and the beds comfortable.

Friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, family and pet friendly. Love the location, less than an hour's drive from Picton, Blenheim and Nelson. The lovely pool complex was the highlight for our children and for us the hot tub brought a much welcoming relaxation. Overal this motel is a great value for money. One thing is for sure...... More
