We were walk ins and ended up staying for two nights,the nice lady on reception was very helpful with our booking as we unsure about staying the second night due to family matters, but I suspect she would go out of her way to help anyone who visits. Our room didn't have a lake view but we were told this... More

Trip Advisor suggested Lotus Thai as one of best Thai in NZ but reception didnt have a menu so we had to visit town to get one. Plates were not clean which made us look more closely at overall cleanliness which... More

We spent 2 nights here. The location is handy to shops and restaurants. Our room was spacious. The bathroom had no amenities though, only soap. Shampoo would have been nice. The soundproofing is not great. We could hear everything going on in the room next door. We would stay elsewhere next time.

I travelled here from Auckland on business and stayed here one night, I have to say I am really happy with both the room but mostly the service, they are welcoming and accommodating and even when I had a silly request about the lights it was still attended to immediately and still really friendly.

I have stayed here a number of times on business, and last week stayed with my family during school holidays for a night. Its not 5 star, but it is modern clean tidy, pleasant and excellent value for money. Great for a night or two. And the cooked breakfasts are a great start to the day! Good Wifi, which is... More

I just stayed here for 2 nights stayed in a room with a king and single bed, and a spa tub in the room. Rooms are clean, I had a cooked breakfast delivered both mornings which was included in the price. Very spacious rooms, had a balcony. Would go back for sure. Friendly lady at reception and happy to help.

We had a lovely stay in the small, but clean and modern 1 room motel. The location was close to town and easy to find. The staff in the office were welcoming. We had a complimentary breakfast which was on time and delicious. We had a lovely time and would stay again

Got a room here on wotif for $130 including a cooked breakfast delivered to our room. Very comfortable, tasty breaky and delightful service. The only thing I would mention is that the pillows were a little hard, but I'm really fussy with my pillow!

Good location, walking distance to town. The room was very clean and tidy and had a wonderful view of the lake & mountain. The breakfast included in the room rate was nice enough. Only negative was the mattress on the bed was old and had springs poking out which made it fairly uncomfortable and caused roll together. The two other... More

Close to shops and cafes. Reasonably priced and very clean. Reception friendly but professional. Lounge furniture looking shabby but other units did have more robust leather furniture. Nice and quiet.Would stay again.
