Just like to drop a short note to say a big thank you to the reception staff for helping us make a late 2pm entry. We've stayed a couple of times at this motel on our way up to Nelson and have always found it to be very clean , well presented and well run. Other attributes are that it... More

As I was on a work trip and it being my first time in the country I felt happy when the staff introduced themselves and carried my bags to the room. Each day I had a newspaper delivered and my room left spotless when I arrived back after work. Great size kitchenette and huge spa bath obviously it was just... More

From the internet banter I was expecting something very special. We ordered the room with the spa bath and with our gear and the two of us we were very crammed. Very disappointing I wouldnt stay there again. The room is so small. The toilet is to close to the bed

We arrived on a very wet Saturday with a new motorbike and we were so well looked after by the managers. Really lovely, friendly people. Room was clean and nice. Good location for access on foot to shops etc.

If you need bang for buck don't stop here, now that's the down side. I had the one bedroom unit with spa bath, shower and cooking facilities. However the staff are friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Now down to the room. Clean and tidy - Good start - However it is very cramped with not a-lot of... More

Great place to stay, just the best. Close to all amenities, and has everything you need when traveling, All cooking facilities including frypan. You can go wine and dine at Restaurants or simply purchase Snapper Fillets from Pak & Save across the road with a nice Bottle of wine, and cook the fish yourself. No problem with this place. I...

We were on a driving holiday and decided to ditch our booked so-called villa ( in fact it's a run down house, smelly, creepy and gloomy ) My children were too scare to stay in that villa. We drove around Christchurch to look for a night to stay,... More
