We were unable to get accommodation on the night we had booked through Wotif due to a double up when we booked, so we were offered a studio on a different night free of charge. This place exceeded our expectations, it is so central yet you feel as though you a away from it all. The surrounding trees and plantings... More

My sister and I came to NZ to celebrate her 65th birthday. We'd only planned on spending one night here but were so charmed by both the hosts and the location that we added a night. Most of the guests spent several nights, many were returnees. The location is easy to find, really important to non-Kiwis. It is spotless, quiet,... More

We stayed three nights here with friends from Auckland. Excellent rooms and location. Toni and Wendy couldn't have been more helpful. This was my first experience of New Zealand motels and one of the best.

We chose this venue because it looked a bit alternative and offered good value. We were not disappointed. The location is super, surrounded by trees, the rooms were very nice and the welcome given by Tony and Wendi was just what we needed after a long drive. We ate at Woodlands the first night until we got our bearings round... More

This is a gorgeous little motel. Our room and all the facilities were spotlessly clean and the communal kitchen was very well equipped. The pool was clean and quiet and the hot tub very welcome! The owners worked hard to run the place and one could tell they cared a lot about it. They were lovely, friendly people. It was... More

Thank you very very much Wendi. I would & have recommended your motel to everyone on my Facebook. Rick & I have stayed in numerous motels but none as tranquil, peaceful or welcoming as yours.

This is a perfect motel. It's right in town, but it feels like you are miles away from everything. There are walks along the river right outside your door, but also it's a 10 minute walk to restaurants and cafes. There is a nice little sitting area, pool and communal kitchen that definitely is a step above what you would... More
