We stayed here on a leisurely drive up from Dunedin on our way to Hanmer Springs. We arrived late afternoon and were greeted warmly and shown to our very large downstairs room no 4.

Large comfortable beds, lovely decor, and quiet even though on a main road and looking out over a car park/industrial... More

This is a very surprising complex, on site restaurant with great good, a bar for the odd drink and a bottle store for takeaways oh yes and great units. The huge units are definitely oversize and are far enough back from the road to have no road noise inside. Beautifully clean and comfortable. Would definitely use them again

The neighborhood seemed nondescript, and being right off Highway 1 with a nearby liquor store was unattractive. However, this motel is placed well off the highway noise behind the liquor store and seemed well soundproofed. It also was clean, modern, with... More
