just stumbled into this motel in our travels and felt very fortunate. Very clean with lots of space. Did two loads of laundry in the most immaculate laundry room ever and payment was on the honour system! Kitchen was terrific and the owners are so friendly and helpful. Excellent value .

We stayed for two nights with three people. The hotel was very clean and has everything you need. A double and a single in the bedroom. Bathroom was nice, good shower and a bath. Free wifi and sky tv were a bonus. Great to have a separate lounge! The double bed was quite soft which we didn't like.

This is an older motel but very clean and tidy. We stayed in a 1bedroom executive twin. The beds were lovely and comfortable with lovely linen. Good value and the service was great. It was very cold in Invercargill but the motel has great heating. It is bit out of town so a car is necessary to get around. Would... More

Lovely stay with John and Annabel. Perfect rooms with everything needed and very friendly. Just a bit noisy till late at night is the only downfall. Great breakfasts provided if you wish and knowledgeably about the things to do around the area. For cleanliness and value you couldn't get better.

We travelled down for the Bluff Oyster Festival and John was happy to take our booking 10 months out from the festival. We found our unit beautifully clean and very, very warm. The bed was comfortable and it was bliss having the extra TV in the bedroom as at one point I was suffering from a cold so I just... More

We stayed one night and found the rooms were extremely clean and tidy. However we found the bed very hard and road noise was very noticeable during the night. It is some distance from central town but that didnt worry us. If you are after cleanliness and value i would highy recommend the hotel. If you are after 4 star... More

Good motel. Would stay again without hesitation. A bit too far from town to walk but taxi only $15 or thereabouts, plus drivers are friendly and happy to make recommendations for food/drink. Plus, if we drove ourselves one of us would have to be the sober driver. Altogether not a problem being out of town.

Great stay, friendly hosts, motel is away from the hustle and bustle of town, free internet a real bonus plus having a second television in the bedroom was a grand idea. Always good to get rewarded for staying though their reward program as well.
