Stayed here for one night on our way down south from Christchurch. Place is managed by a pleasant English couple. Rooms were clean and well maintained and there's a full kitchen attached. Motel is on the main road but there wasn't much disturbance from traffic. There's a nice park just beside the motel and you can walk through it to... More

We stayed here for one night recently and found it a great place to stay. Very clean, great kitchen and bathroom facilities, comfortable bed. A great friendly welcome from Monty the dog, and Debbie was very helpful in explaining local walks and where to go. The TV was perhaps a bit small for the room, but a minor inconvenience really....

Has a spa bath which was a first for me. Debbie is lovely and totally approachable. Nothing is too much trouble to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. She is willing to give... More

Booked in at short notice. Very helpful and friendly reception person. Rooms are clean and comfortable if a little dated. Missed having a tv in the bedroom. Had a vack unit so no road noise. Would stay here again.

Had to book the family suite as it was all that was available. It was very clean and tidy, lots of space, ample facilities for cooking if needed. The recycling bins were a bit of a challenge, but I followed the instructions. But as the motel is on the main road it is very noisy so be prepared for a... More

We were given a warm welcome by Debbie. The accommodation was very good - large room and super bathroom. Everything very clean. Good location when travelling and although just off the main road was nice and quiet. We even saw the baby penguins on the beach at sunset. Would definitely go back if passing this way again.
