Stayed 2 nights in 2 bedroomed unit which was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Appreciated the free Wi-Fi and inconspicuous cleaning and replacement of towels etc. A great location with an easy walk to the shopping area during the day and good restaurants at night. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful. Would stay here again.

Spent only one night but would have been a lovely place to stay longer. We were on our way to Auckland for our return home after 3 weeks traveling through both islands. The Inn is in a great location, well maintained, and very comfortable. The room was large and welcome after a few we had stayed in that were half... More

Great motor inn, large spacious rooms and excellent facilities. Owners were super efficient and helpful. A very pleasant stay and we would gladly recommend this place to any and all. When next in Cambridge, we will stay here without doubt. Easy walk into the shopping area of Cambridge

Got there very late on Christmas Day. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating since we were arriving long after office hours. Very clean and comfortable. The 2 beds were in one long room - not a lot of airflow in the room, but a fan was provided.

The feel of this place is definitely dated (nothing modern), but the suites are very large and tidy, with a lovely porch area to sit in. Given the size of the suites, we were surprised we only had a small apartment-sized fridge, which was a little frustrating as we were stocking up and cooking all our own meals. The pool... More

We had a wedding to go to booked this last minute pretty good value we had two double beds but only one was needed. The high ceiling made the room seem very spacious. Bed was ok. Shower was hot and good pressure. Staff were very friendly and the free wifi is great. Kids were playing in the pool about 8.00am... More

While the room certainly could do with some modernising, we could find little to complain about the cleanliness, lack of noise and the amount of space in the room. The high ceiling and spacious interior made us feel relaxed. No security concerns. The inn is located next to a retirement village within the town, so it probably contributed to the... More

Very pricey for quality of rooms. Really dated - looks like as furnished in early eighties and untouched since. Staff nice enough. Pool nothing like as big as in photo. Ok for overnight but wouldn't spend longer.

Great little motel. We stayed in a unit that by the owners own admission is due for an upgrade however it is more than adequate in its present state. Clean, tidy, with lovely friendly hosts who did everything to help. Also amazingly quiet especially considering the location. Recommended to all looking for a genuine inexpensive small town experience.

We stayed here only one night but wished we could stay longer. The staff were so friendly and eager to make our stay comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom unit that was very large and very clean. We would recommend this well cared for and maintained motor inn!
