the owners are very nice and accommodating. The rooms are ver clean and everything is very well kept. We had a hot tub in the suite that made the jet lag melt away. Very definitely the right choice in the area.

The motel is on a side street so very quiet. There is a very nice pool. Tristen arranged a Maori tour for us. Some rooms even have a spa!!! Easy walking distance... More

older motel but, very well appointed and cared for. The most amazing Hosts, they bent over backwards to make sure our stay was a great one, from the minute we arrived until leaving. The restaurant they recommended, within walking distance, was first class as well

We stayed for 2 nights in early March. Pete and Tristen were wonderful hosts from the freshly ground coffee and real milk we were handed when we arrived, to the fantastic advice regarding what we could do during our stay - including some great sightseeing and places to eat. It makes such a difference to your experience when hosts are... More

We decided to come a day early due and glad we picked this place. Lovely host who was so helpful and provided freshly ground coffee and discount vouchers. Nice clean motel with comfortable beds. Small very warm pool that was good to swim in after long drive.

This was a fairly last minute booking, but turned out to be an really good location in town, and a simple but highly functional room, everything you need. Excellent facilities including spa pools and importantly, great, friendly staff. Recommended
