We rang this place as our plans had changed and we couldn't face an unbroken 10 hour drive. We managed to get the last 2 rooms at 3 hours notice.

Very nice and new. The nicest motor lodge that I have stayed in my 11 days in NZ. It is new and modern. Very clean. Walking distance from city and restaurants. The owners were very nice and the hotel also had free Wi Fi. Excellent!
