Everything you need here - comprehensive kitchenette, flat panel TV, nice big bathroom and spa bath, very friendly and helpful welcome from our hosts Sue and David. Rates were good given the quality of the room - a $5 wifi Internet (50MB limit) was also thrown in for free.

Great clean tidy and spacious rooms. Brilliant location. 2 minutes away from probably the best fish and chips/seafood/oysters (Kings on Ythan St). Definitely recommend!

We booked three rooms for three nights at this motel, Its in a good location on the outskirts of town with a shopping complex across the road. I commend the owners on how clean this property was but it is stuck in the 70's. The furnishings are clean but very dated. The kitchen facilites are limited, you could not cook... More

We stayed one night before heading for the Catlins. Room was spacious with LCD TV. Location is excellent as we could just cross the road to the supermarket. Owners provided information on nearby eateries and we rested well after long drive from Lake Manapouri. We received 2 hours of free wireless surfing and managed to upload pictures of our Doubtful...

Great location and very friendly and helpful owners. My wife and I have stayed here before and we love the different units in which we've stayed - we felt very spoilt in the king sized bed. Very convenient to the centre of town and across the road from the supermarket. We had a great stay and we will be back... More

We actually sayed here twice, the first time in a studio and the second time in a one bedroomed unit. Both times were great. The location is convenient and close enough to the city even if you don't have a car. The supermarket across the road makes life very convenient. The units are really generous on space and comfort.
