I stayed here for 2 nights in August which is a quiet time in NZ. I booked via the Internet and had a welcoming message before my arrival. The location is great and the hosts are very pleasant and willing to assist in any way they can. The. Room was large, spotless and better furnished than some far more expensive... More

A great motel that is in a perfect location. The rooms were a generous size and the bed was very comfortable. Friendly service and so close to the beach and restaurants. Had a great time and will certainly return.

This recent visit was the third time we have stayed at Swiss Chalet. Great location, clean, tidy, welcoming hosts and a really calm place to stay to get away for a few days. Thank you Maureen and Phil. Will definitely come back :) Arun and Jayna.

The rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable and conveniently located close to town centre. Another bonus is that the hosts, Phil and Maureen, are very friendly and helpful. The... More

Good sized room with plenty of space. An ideal 3 night stop-over for our tour. Good covered parking area. Had some noise disturbance from guests upstairs on day one - fortunately they left on the next day. Motel owners Phil and Maureen were friendly and helpful. Would be happy to recommend.

We loved this little place ! While we didn't have a view of the bay, we loved sitting out on the balcony and enjoying the morning sun and our coffee. It was very quiet at this time of year, although can imagine it is a popular summer place. We found the room to be clean, and the bed was very... More
