Only stayed at this motel for one night on a tour of New Zealand but was pleasantly surprised. Was upgraded to a cottage with jacuzzi bath! Shame we were not there longer. Very comfortable beds, good heating and fully equipped kitchen. Very close to lake and town centre. Helpful reception staff. Would stay here again.

Hi Maddy M, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and enjoy the facilities that we offer. We want our guests to be comfortable and warm - a basic as far as we are concerned and in our climate, it can be a bit cooler and wet sometimes so we try to over deliver on the heating. Our guests... More

Very nice motel. Beautiful room with good kitchen and 2 separate bedrooms. Room was big enough and very clean. In each bedroom there is a tv and 1 big one in the living room. One of the best motels we had in New-Zealand.

This place out if all those we have visited over the last two weeks has had it all. The beautifully furnished rooms with comfortable beds and chairs, hanging space and electric blankets, nicely compensated for the small rooms.

The outside is unassuming, but you can't always judge a book by its cover. The interiors are beautiful and well stocked with kitchen items for full meal preparation in our studio unit. The heated tiles in the bathrooms are a nice touch after a cool day in milford sound. The owner is a polite lovely man who will chat readily... More

We found this motel very good value for money for a spa bath unit - our room was large as was the spa bath and we loved it. After 7 nights on a boat in Fiordland we needed a nice quiet comfortable night to catch up and this offered both of those. Free Wi-Fi fantastic and even though we didn't... More
