Stayed for two nights and very happy with our little room. Not cramped, just the right size. Was very clean and the bed was soft but not too soft. The bathroom had heated floor and that won my partner over straight away. The little kitchen had everything needed to eat in with a little microwave and stovetop. Only a neat... More

A little mixed. Downsides were too-soft beds, and a lack of cupboard space in the second bedroom. Pluses were underfloor heating in bathroom, good location, very clean and otherwise comfortable. Has reverse cycle aircon and small oil heaters.

We stayed one night here on our way from Mt Cook to Milford Sound. We were very pleasantly surprised by the room considering we got a good deal on it. The bathroom was huge and I was able to take a much needed jacuzzi bath. The bed was big and comfy and the room was large and well equipped. We... More

Such a gem! Clean, warm, modern with all amenities and many unexpected! Surprised and delighted to find a great bbq on back terrace. Spa was in excellent condition. The owner Nigel was friendly and helpful and very understanding of our delay due to weather and road conditions. Plenty of heating for a cold winter.

After traveling for a week, it was nice to finally have a place with a kitchen. A two burner stove and we had 'our own food'. Location was excellent as well, a short walk to the park headquarters and less than 15 minute walk to town and all the tours. A little bit dated but still very worthwhile.

This was my favourite motel of all our golden chain motels in New Zealand over 3 weeks. We stayed 2 nights. The room was lovely, newly decorated with a decent kitchen with a hob. The bathroom was really nice with a spa bath/ with jets and heated tiles! The owners were nice. This motel was one of very few that... More

It was our first time in a motel and we were quite happy with what was offered. The room was big enough, had a kitchenette and a separate bathroom. We had everything we needed and there was more than enough space for our luggage. The room looked good, but the bathroom had seen better days and felt quite damp (even... More

Staying in rental accommodation can often be cold in the lower south but not so here. We had warm (heat pump, underfloor bathroom heat, heated towel rail an extra heaters in bedrooms) rooms and really clean and well appointed. The lady at reception was really friendly.

Stayed for 2 nights in the studio room. Check in was easy and was given a small bottle of fresh milk. The room was small but adequate. It has a small kitchen with microwave and cutlery, a small table and chairs, TV with 50channels with is a bonus for us, really good long bathroom bench with good toiletries. Heater towel... More
