Beautiful large modern rooms with plenty of room to move around. Very clean with great amenties and the bed was great. The host was a lovely young man who took us to our room which was right on the main road but wasn't really a problem. He also recommended a few places to eat which we took advantage of and... More

We spent a night enroute from Christchurch to Queenstown. The room is spacious and clean. There's a small porch at the back. However, wifi is slow and limited. You are better off using your own data from your pre-paid. The motel is located at the edge of town. You could park your car at the front of you room. There's... More

We stay 2 nights at this hotel in Dec. 2015. The motel is at the main road. The room is big, clean, well equipped and the bed is comfortable. However, the wifi signal is quite weak in my room. Unfortunately, its drizzling rain all day long on 14 Dec. Stay at Franz Josef Glacier township if you want to have... More

The staff is very friendly, he gave us a couple of options to have dinner (not that there's much in town). Rooms are very clean and have everything you may need to go through a cold night, although they look a little old. They have free wifi and coffee in the room. You can park right outside your room.

The rooms are spacious, and clean, but the property is in need of a bit better maintenance. There was a wall heater barely still attached to the wall in our room by one screw, and the heater did not work, anyway. Their wireless network (free) was entirely useless. Still, the location was convenient, and you won't spend much time in... More

Had a well rested time here. Right smack in the centre of town. Close to restaurants and supermarket. This is our second time staying at this accomodation. Value for money. Wifi available. Great for short stays.

This motel is located in the centre of town, and has up to date modern features and nice staff. Downside for me was that it is described as having a kitchenette, so I half expected it to have a hot plate, but all it has is a kitchen sink and a microwave.

This motel feels more like a hotel. The service has been top notch and the recommendations from staff spot-on. The rooms are not the most modern or fanciest, but each room had a nice patio and is very spacious. Really like the soap the hotel provides and wifi connection is pretty good.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this accomodation. Stayed three night in a very comfortable room 1. We were closest to the road but no noise at night so slept well. Lovely position and bed very comfortable. We got a good price here. Only snag is very limited amount of free wifi. Lasted about one hour.

A well equipped motel unit with a kitchenette if you wanted to look after yourself. The studio room is large containing a king-size bed, lounge, table and television stand, and opened onto a grass area. Bathroom was large, and well appointed. Overall a good place to stay with the great options reflecting the variety of clients that use this accommodation.... More
