This is an excellent motel run by extremely friendly staff. The room was well equipped and comfortable, with good, fast internet. The highlight of our stay was the friendly welcome and the advice provided regarding nearby restaurants and landmarks. We were also given some very useful tips for our drive from Christchurch to Dunedin. Would recommend this motel to everyone.

Room was large with well appointed kitchenette, en suite bathroom, desk & chair, free wifi, armchairs and big comfy bed. The TV had a good range of channels including sport. Best of all... More

Great location only a short walk from many of the good restaurants. The service was second to none with many suggestions to good eat locations prepared for you. The rooms were comfortable and the heating worked maybe a little too well.

Great place to stay very close to the CBD without being right in the thick of it. Jeff and his family are very friendly and can offer great advice, and it's nice to stay somewhere and support a family business. Strongly recommend to anyone looking for a nice, warm place to stay.

Nice motel, clean and friendly. Centrally located, within easy walk to the CBD. Geoff and Naomi spared no effort to make our stay comfortable. Geoff prepared a map of surrounding facilities that he updates regularly as more businesses re-open after the devastating earthquake. I will sure stay there again.
