We only spend one night, but with the very friendly welcome with great hospitality shared it made you feel very welcome in there place. Yes it is old, but it was clean. Even through you are right next to state Highway 1 there was not much noise from the trucks passing, we both hard a good nights sleep.

I booked this motel because of the good reviews and was very disappointed. I don't know if we were unlucky and got a unit that hadn't been refurbished and others had but this was the worst accommodation we came across. Everything was old and shabby and the bed linen and pillows smelled musty. We had 2 bedrooms and the twin... More

Excellent friendly hosts where nothing is too much trouble. Very clean and tidy rooms and everything one needs for a safe and comfortable stay. Very much a home away from home and I will definitely be back.

Motel was clean and well equipped with all amenities and friendly staff. The pool and spa were an added attraction for the kids. Conveniently located on our way from the Waitomo caves, the Kiwi house nearby being an added attaction the motel made a great stopover.

We stayed for one night in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment itself was spacious, clean, tidy and well-stocked. Everything you need for a decent stay was provided. The motel is very close to the centre of town, and local attractions - the Kiwi House is about two minutes back down the road, and the Waitomo Caves are an easy... More

As an older female solo traveller, I like to stay in places where I feel safe and comfortable and, as I travel by bus, I need to be able to reach amenities on foot. This motel is perfect on all counts. My unit was towards the back of the motel, close to the pool, spa and playground. It was very... More

A nice simple motel with a warm welcome. The unit we had was very clean and tidy and serviced daily. The owners were very helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We opted to have our breakfasts in the motel; we only wanted juice and toast but they were delivered at the promised time and proved very acceptable.... More
