Rooms were excellent and staff were lovely and very helpful. We didn't have high expectations but we were pleasantly surprised. Two families stayed in a 3 bed room apartment and we were very warm and comfortable. Would definitely visit again.

Lovely owners! Was so pleased to arrive here after a long day of driving, so friendly and so welcoming. We felt at home and enjoyed our free coffee vouchers for rustic cafe! Our room was warm and clean on arrival which was great :)! Although the wifi was limited it was still great to have. Highly recommend:).

We arrived in the early afternoon from Greymouth and received excellent service from reception. The lady told us about the incoming weather conditions and was very helpful in letting us know about road closures that might affect the rest of our trip. Room was clean and very comfy for our one night stay. Nice and warm seeing as it snowed... More

Good for what it is, value and location. very freindly welcoming owners. second time there in last year or so. I would go again. plenty of spaces for kids to play hide and seek in the rooms. Warm and cosy, even have a log burner for the colder evenings.

The room was clean, functional and cosy. Heater worked a treat and shower was hot. We did find the bed a bit hard for our liking. No noise from adjoining unit. The staff were very friendly and professional, nothing was a problem. We would stay here again

It may not have the sterile pristineness of a four or five star hotel (some of which had rooms worse than this Motel), and yes it is a little "dated", but it is exceptional for value. Our welcome was very friendly, laced with lots of local information, and an apology for the small size of the unit being given to... More
