We were disappointed in our stay here. The furnishings were tired. The beds were very uncomfortable. The location was fine, near some restaurants and the beach in mainly a residential area. Sorry to report our opinion.

Our room was very clean with all the equipment etc required in the kitchen area. It was conveniently located a short distance from shops, restaurants and the beach. There was an outside area with table and chairs. We slept extremely well but we're disappointed that wifi was not included in the price of the room as it was in most... More

This place is very clean. Amazing location. Free wifi! We got the room with the microwave and mini fridge, score! A little on the pricey side but there's not much you can do about that. Books up quick so plan ahead! Felt safe and clean here, definitely recommend this place!

This motel is clean and tidy, spick and span. Proprietors Dianne and Robin have got a good business here; all details are covered: they've thought of just about every detail. Comfy beds, beautiful linen, Sky TV., and very clean.

Comfortable room with the standard New Zealand equipped kitchenette, rooms very close together with little space on the balconies. We had smokers next door and the smoke drifted in. Paid $10 for Wi-Fi (used $2 worth) through outside company,but could not use it again on the rest of our trip in NZ, Suggest for the higher cost of this motel,... More

We had a two bed unit for my family of four. Very comfortable beds, clean and well maintained throughout the unit. Site is also of a simmilar standard and well maintained. Will stay again on our next visit up here without hesitation. Only negative which is minor is that the rooms we had only had a view of the courtyard.

This Motel is a little more expensive than most others we stayed at during our holiday in NZ and there is also a little extra to this place. We felt very welcomed already when checking in and have nothing to complain about from the rest of the stay. Comment: From hotels.com and Tripadvisor I was informed there should be free... More

Turned up with no reservation, fantastically helpful - as spa wasn't working allowed us to use a room with private spa. Great value for money and super restaurants in walking distance. Well equipped room.

Clean, friendly, good amenities. Easy check-in, check-out. Quite. Good location for exploring the region. Also, left my scarf their, and wonderful Dianne posted it back to me. You can't ask for better service than that.
