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

Well run, extremely clean and comfortable. Very close to sport's facilities. Hosts David and Muriel have a good knowledge of the area and are very helpful, friendly and kind. They made sure we were well catered for, and comfortable, and we had everything we needed. We stayed 3 days and when down south next time will stay at the Moana... More

A big thanks to the lovely owners who made our stay during Field Days week so comfortable and stress-free. The little things like helping with laundry after a very long day, and sorting a colleague out with a bed when her accommodation elsewhere was mucked up were very much appreciated. The motel offers lots of little extras like complimentary umbrellas... More

Very well run so clean and tidy throughout. Very quiet as well despite handy location on main road. Plenty parking, soap bars (I hate liquid soap), sky, etc. spacious older style unit but in excellent condition. Would stay again and very moderate pricing.

We booked and paid on the phone for a two bedroom unit but ended up preferring one of their single bedroom units; but we still ended up paying for a two bedroom. They were helpful finding a room we liked. Bottom line was - we enjoyed our stay.

I am really sorry if you felt that you had been overcharged. The rate you paid was our seniors rate. and the room that you selected was unit 6 which also is the same price as our 2 bedroom unit. We hope that you will stay with us next time More

By a main road, but quiet at night. Friendly welcome, spacious and modern room with all facilities. Convenient location just away from the centre of the city.. The room was spacious, well organized and very, very clean. Muriel (sp) was very helpful in helping me situate myself in the city.

The rooms were very spacious and the Hotel had great cooking facilities. This was particularly good for us as we had a sports team and had to do cooking for many people. The Hotel owners were also extremely helpful in all our dealings with them. Overall it was a great place to stay.
