What you'd expect from a simple motel in a small town. No complaints...fair amenities and facilities. We'd had the urge to watch Lord of the Rings since being in NZ but it wasn't available in the motels free DVD hire range. We settled into our room when we got a knock of the door and the owner was there with... More

The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. Range of DVDs available to borrow for free and so free movies to watch on the TV. A little noisy at night as it's located on the highway. The lady who first served us when we checked in was not very friendly, she was on the phone whilst serving us. But the... More

Was clean and comfortable but as this is the last motel on the way out of town it sits right before the highway (100kms/h) starts...the trucks have already started going 100kms/h and you can hear it! They hadn't turned on the heater in the room and as we arrived in the evening it was cold! They did have wifi in... More

The Mediterranean is on the edge of town so makes for great long walks along the beach, which I loved. The hotel is extremely clean, I had everything I needed in the kitchenette and once I had the heating turned on for 10 minutes, it was lovely and cosy. The bed is amazing, so comfortable, lovely and warm with the... More

Not only clean etc, but the wi fi actually worked! The welcome was friendly, the heaters had been turned on before we arrived and the water was hot! The rooms are nicely decorated and have an up-to-date look and feel. There's even free DVD loan from Reception! Recommended. There's some road noise, but all the motels in Kaikoura are along... More

This motel unit was fairly spacious with a well appointed kitchen and nice bathroom. The beds were comfortable and internet access worked well. The lady who checked us in was pleasant and showed us the room. The unit was clean; the only drawback was the laundry was not available. All in all, a good night's rest for part of our... More

This was the first hotel coming into the city. The staff was awesome and showed us the rooms before we decided to stay. The bed was very comfortable. The room was large enough and it had a kitchenette. The train was loud when it came by but that is about it. The staff helped us find a place that is... More

Spent one night here on our drive back to Picton and we were the only guests for the night. Not sure if the motel is new or newly renovated but room furniture very good and probably the most comfortable bed we have had in our ten day sun NZ. Bathroom had cupboard for storing toiletries unlike some where they go... More

The room was clean and functional and that's where it ends. Didn't see a smile or a friendly face after staying two nights. The place is also very scruffy. Old car mats draped over the rocks at the entrance way, soggy towels and empty bottles in the gardens. Not the look of a motel in a major tourism destination. The... More

Thank you for your comments. I like to spend time with our guests and talk about their travels. We have been rather busy and sometimes we get caught up in the running of the motel and can't talk to every guest we have staying with us. The one old car mat has been left behind by who knows. I removed... More

This motel is located on the main highway where the speed limit drops. The traffic noise is terrible. We thought it would die down as the evening wore on, but the truck traffic never stops. As the speed limit changes right at the hotel, you hear the trucks downshifting and it feels like they are in the room with you.... More

Thank you for your feedback. You're right about the windows. Once closed the noise goes away. Double glazed. I shall make a change to the compendium in the room to let our guests know that we have fans available if required. That would have suited your situation and would have made your night more agreeable. Unfortunately we live in a... More
