Perfect Kiwi hospitality. David and Muriel go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Lovely and clean and the most comfortable beds, which is very important to me. Ideal location, especially to the stadium.

Modern kitchen and facilities good for the weekend. The weather was horrendous over the weekend but the heater... More

They had also provided a paper towels for the kitchen which was a helpful extra touch. The lounge area was ok, there was a large tv but when you sat down... More

We stayed in unit 8 for a conference held at the stadium behind, just a short two minute walk, the motel. It was very clean, easy to book and they even went the extra mile and added another bed to the room so we could all stay together. The beds we all agreed where the most comfy we had experienced...

We occupied the 3 bedroomed unit which was spacious, beautifully appointed and immaculate. Very conveniently located next to the stadium & velodrome. Muriel was very helpful and we would definitely stay here again.

These motels are very cosy, spotlessly clean, warm and quiet even though they are on a main road. Hostess, Muriel, is very friendly and helpful and goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable. The motels are also very handy to Stadium Southland. When going to events, such as netball, I can be in my seat in... More
