Stayed here one night on business recently. Nothing to get too excited about but it was very clean and comfortable and they put me in one of the units away from the road just as asked. Good parking and whilst a bit of a walk to the Main Street restaurants, a perfectly good experience. I will stay again. Thanks.

Cannot really complain about anything It was a great experience, very clean and tidy, and in budget too. Very good and helpful owners. Pretty close to all nice and cheap food options including Thai, Chinese, Indian, Fish n Chips etc. for takeaways. Some nice restaurants not very far from the Lodge.

Clean and cosy. Great location and everything you need is there. Bathroom was perfect for us and there is a good laundry. Internet works well and is fast. Parking is outside the door. We werent disturbed by the traffic noise, actually preferred the location on the main street. Can recommend!

Stayed at this motel upon our return to New Zealand. Stayed 7 nights and were very welcomed and our hosts were brilliant. Asked every day if there was anything that we needed or if we wanted our rooms cleaned. Access to the Internet was okay and free to use, also Sky is available. Laundry facilities are good with 2 washers,... More

It started with a very warm and genuine welcome. We had not booked, so our visit was "spur of the moment" but we are so glad it was this place where we chose to stay. The room was spotless and warm, king bed was comfy and warmed by an electric blanket, shower nice and hot and there was enough of... More
