Booked a one-bedroom unit; in reality the "bedroom" is a shoe-box with a bi-fold door, only big enough for a single bed, a small wardrobe and nothing else. Perhaps would be passable if the wardrobe was removed and a bedside table installed instead. Unit is modern and clean but expensive for what you get.

Found this motel to be very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. It was close to the airport and up the road is the Bush Inn shopping Mall and supermarkets. They had a deal with a taxi company so got this ride to the airport cheaper. Plus they stored my car there for the week. Will definitely stay there... More

We stayed in the spa bath unit for one night, the owner picked us up from the airport with in 10 minutes of us calling him which was really good service. The room was small and a bit tight with nowhere to put our luggage but on the floor. The room was clean and had everything that you need for... More

The motel is easy to find, clean, and accessible to the airport and most of town without too much trouble. Large bathroom in our unit, along with basic kitchenette facilities. The staff was cordial, but not overly friendly. Parking was empty when we arrived (5:30PM) but was full by the time we returned from dinner (7:30P). A perfectly reasonable place... More

We recently stayed here at the beginning of our trip around south island. Our plane arrived around Midnight and it was 1am when we arrived at the hotel. We were warmly greeted as we arrived, shown to our room and even got some great tips for our trip. The room was nice and cosy. The bed was extremely comfortable after... More

There are other motels closer but this one is a good one. There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport even if you arrive very late like we did. The rooms are fine, not overly big, but fine. The beds are great and we all slept well. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with a double... More
