Staying at the Midway hotel was just like a home away from home. The room was cosy and the bed was awesome, but what made this place so special was the amazing service karen and I received from the hotel owner karen. My sister Karen and i arrived under a very stressful circumstances and Karen went above and beyond to... More

After findinding out we would be arriving back at the motel late (travelling back from rugby match in Dunedin), Karen said she would put the heaters on in... More

A very comfortable and spacious older motel. Very quiet as its off the main road. The Hosts Karen and Ken couldnt do enough for us, even helping out with a ingredient so I could cook our meal. I loved the idea of having a full kitchen, it saved on buying food/eating out. It was also fantastic to be able to... More

This was an excellent motel, if slightly old-style in bathroom and kitchen layout. Good shower. Very clean throughout and comfortable bed. Has advantage of being set well back from main road with good parking. The service from hostess Karen could not have been better, with advice on places to see and for eating in the town, in addition to very... More

A very well-maintained 1970s-style establishment around 1.5 km north of the town centre. The motel is in a good position for car access (on State Highway 1), but you hear very little road noise in the room because it's set back from the road. Most of the kitchen and bathroom fittings appear to be original, but it's been so well-kept... More

This motel is tops for service and cleanliness, vicinity and comfort. The hosts go that extra mile to please and make one welcome - even home baking delivered to the unit! Nothing was a bother- I will certainly return!

From the road, just another in a long street full of motels; the difference is the hospitality of the owners. Lots of free car parking, WIFI, very comfortable bed, light and airy room - although a heater and elec. blankets for colder nights. Enjoyed our stay very much

We stayed here 1 night with our family and found the room to be very clean. roomy and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking our meal and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful in giving suggestions for restaurants and for viewing the penguins. We also really appreciated the electric heaters as it was quite chilly while... More
