I am never sure about staying in motels. Some are not so good, however this studio unit was spacious and very clean. It was a bit dark so we had to put the light on during the afternoon, but that was fine. I think maybe having lighter coloured bedspreads would help brighten it up. Apart from that it was very...

Friendly receptionist. Motel room was clean, and the kitchen was well equipped with the usual appliances and cutlery. The bathroom was large with lots of towels including a dark coloured facecloth that had makeup embroided on it.(saves the nice white towels). The bedrooms were massive with a queen and single bed in each room. They also had a TV. in... More

Everything you need is in the room, it was spacious and clean. The staff were really helpful and let us leave our luggage whilst we went to Stewart Island. Parking is right outside your unit. Its a little way out of the centre so you need a car to pop into town where most of the restaurants are. The only... More

The room had a mezzanine floor with a bedroom upstairs, a single bed in very spacious living area which featured comfortable lounge chairs, sofa and dining table. Kitchen facilities with all the things that you would require. Bathroom and toilet facilities very clean... More

As the title sugests, this Motel is big enough and spacious to cater for four adults. The self contained kitchen was good too along with the location which is close to town. There are parks right outside the door and the unit was clean.

We had a 2 bedroom unit and it was massive - easily the most comfortable and spacious on our trip around the South Island. Very comfortable. Only downside that the town centre is probably too long a walk for a family with kids....
