Sky TV so we could watch the test. A new non stick frypan would be a good investment. Ours had a round bottom. Neville gave us the... More

Great location, friendly owners. We had a one bedroom unit which was clean and spacious. Outdoor areas were well maintained. Great heating throughout the unit made for a comfortable night as it was quite cold when we visited. Lovely views, peaceful and quiet and close to restaurants and some shops.

Newish, spacious, super clean and comfortable. We had a studio unit and enjoyed our brief stay. Helpful host with advice about where to eat. Right by the Omarama airfield so easy to go for a glider flight. Would certainly stay there again, good value.

We booked a one bedroom apartment because the studio room was booked out. The rooms were very spacious. It came with a seperate living and kitchen space. Bed was super comfortable. Amazing value for money. Absolutely loved our stay. We also had amazing views of the mountain from our window. Very friendly staff

Our second visit to Sierra Motels and it was even better than the first time! There have been a number of new units built since we were last here and they are excellent.

A reasonably modern motel, clean and well apppointed with utensils and appliances. Very welcoming hostess and most accommodating. Would certainly recommend this motel to travellers wanting to break their journey on this inland route of the South Island.

The second time we have stayed at this hotel. We were in a studio room and this was clean, comfortable and quiet, just what we wanted. Perfect for the Hot tubs across the road and The Wrinkly Ram cafe next door.
