We found this a great place to stay for a night en-route from Franz Josef to Kaikoura. Good sized comfortable room with a huge shower room. Very clean and well equipped. Great advice from the manager on interesting local sights.

We thought the gables motor lodge was a great place to stay with great service and nothing was too much trouble for management with the laundry and booking our meals and activities would go back their in a heart beat

The rooms are large and clean. Hosts were especially accommodating with dinner suggestions, reservations, information on activities. We made minimal use of the kitchen facility, but it was well-appointed. Great stopover between Fox Glacier and Abel Tasman.

Only stayed here one night as a stopover before crossing to the east coast. Our one bedroom unit was clean, tidy and very comfortable. Although on the main highway traffic noise was not a problem. The motel is a fair distance from the town centre but there were a couple of places close by to eat. The owner was very... More

I was surprised through most of the smaller town in the south island that we stayed at motor inns. I think we have a bit of a negative impression of motor inns as North Americans - I have to say that that impression is complete wrong as it applies to New Zealand. All the motor inn's that we stayed at... More

Superbly maintained accommodation with everything we needed. Immacuately clean and well provisioned for our type of stay. Loved getting our choice of fresh milk instead of the obligatory UHT tear-tab horrors and all crockery and cutlery neatly stored and again superbly clean. Host couldnt have been more helpful.

We stayed here while traveling from the Marlborough region to Fox Glacier. The room was clean, comfortable and had great internet. We used the communal BBQ which the owner/manager had ensured was clean and it worked perfectly. The kitchen was basic but functional. It is well placed for supermarket for supplies but the town centre is too far to walk.... More

stumbled across this motel on our way down the west coast and what a find. Ian was most welcoming and offered us the one bedroom SC apartment which had a spacious loungeroom with separate king size (most comfortable) bed. The location was perfect with supermarket, restaurant and bottle shop within walking distance. I thought the roadway might be noisy but... More

Stayed for one night travelling up the jaw-droppingly scenic NZ west coast. Reception was very friendly and informative. The unit was well-appointed, not new but spotlessly clean. Close to a restaurant (Buccleugh's) where I had one of the best meals during my stay in NZ. A supermarket is also within walking distance. Did not visit the town centre, as I... More
