We stayed in a two bedroom unit for four nights. Hosts were extremely accommodating and extended us much kindness and hospitality during our stay. Location is great, room was well provisioned with kitchenwares, it was clean, warm and comfortable.

The proprietor is friendly and helpful, the rooms are VERY clean, with tasteful decor and bed covers.I have stayed at hotels, motels B&B and pensions all around the world, but this place would have to be one of the best for three main reasons.

Great motel! Very well equipped, clean, and comfy. Nicely decorated with a TV in both the lounge area and the bedroom. Lovely to have a separate bedroom. The motel is on busy Papanui Road but there was minimal road noise. The beds were really comfortable, our only gripe would be the pillows which were of the highish firm variety....the option... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly during our stay and even went out of their way to help us out. The unit was clean and reasonably well maintained. Internet was easy to... More

The rooms were always very clean and tidy. The one bedroom unit had a big sized bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. We moved the single bed... More
