A lovely clean and well set up room, with everything a traveller could need. Kind and friendly hosts and an easy walk to town and a fab restaurant close by for... More

I'm not sure how many times I've now stayed here under it's current and two previous owners but it's still as good as ever and, in fact, improving in that most of the rooms have now been completely re-furbished. The proprietors could not be more helpful, friendly and accommodating: a group of us stay frequently in lodge 5 and always... More

Lady at reception was friendly. Room was nice and quiet, no street noise. Everything was tidy and clean. Nice comfortable bed, decent flat screen TV. No noise from other units, a nice place out in the sticks. Would stay here again

Nothing was too much trouble and as I was traveling on my own I was almost made to feel "part of the family" Awesome !! The room itself... More

We usually stay here when visiting friends and family in this part of NZ. Since our last stay nearly two years ago there have been new owners who have undertaken a refurbishment of the rooms. There is now an extra wheelchair access room which is really terrific. The rooms are light, modern and spacious. As for the hosts - they... More

We stayed at the Motor Lodge for one night on February 8 (2013) due to a set of unexpected circumstances. What made our visit so memorable wasn't the typical things that contribute to a pleasant stay, such as spaciousnes, cleanliness, professional service etc., but the manner in which the owners , Sue and John Gore, and their son Hamish helped...
