We stayed here for a single night while doing a NZ road trip. This was the first motel we stayed at in NZ, and a pleasant surprise. The staff were all very helpfull, directing us to what to see and when, without spending a great deal, and we did follow thier directions and saw a lot in the limited time... More

Small rooms but very clean and well decorated - simple & modern with all amenities. Continental breakfast is great. Few different spreads would be nice. Staff very friendly and helpful. Go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. Happy to suggest tourist attractions to visit. Would definitely stay here again. Think for the price definitely get your money's... More

Its a cute little motel with extremely cosy rooms. Lance is a great host who loves to talk to his guests and he is indeed very informative. We got up early to accommodate for a place that he recommended and that place was more than what we could have imagined. Breakfast is great and everything about this place feels very... More

Great accommodation for the following reasons: -This was the only place I stayed at that offered free breakfast, which was very convenient (toast, fruit, juice, cereal, coffee, tea, etc). -They also offer free pick up from the iSite which was great -- the motel isn't far from the iSite, but it was nice to not have to drag my luggage...

Quiet location within short walk of centre and lake. Room was comfortable and clean, although smaller than some we had stayed in. Bonus was provision of a plentiful continental breakfast. Lance is a very helpful and friendly manager with a wealth of knowledge of the locality and advice on how to make the most of your stay.

Just returned from a month in NZ and this place stands out as the single best value for the money of our entire trip. Don't expect fancy, new, or spacious. In our room, one person would be roomy. but with two it starts to get cramped. It's older, but clean. Bed comfortable. Property comes with excellent value added: First, Lance... More

The motel has nice location, close to the center but away from a noisy road. The room we had was big enough and clean. The breakfast was nothing special but just good to start your day. The owner was very helpfull and friendly. I can not recall any bad thing so I do recommend the place.

The photos are completely misleading. The rooms are tiny, with no air conditioning which is a must in the heat of NZ weather. The bathroom was even smaller and was disgusting. There was black mould on the shower head and on the shower glass near the base where the cleaner obviously took a short cut. This motel is not 4... More

Wonderful value for the $. Lance at the front desk knows so much about the area. His tips were on target, whether it was a restaurant or a hike. The room itself worked. Beds were comfortable and shower was nice. Breakfast was a nice continental spread. No road noise, easy drive into town, and across the street (walk or drive)... More
