Staff were very friendly and helpful, facilities were immaculate, convenient distance to the pools, and an overall comfortable stay all around. Would stay again in a heartbeat! No major issues. Fridge was a little noisy at night... nothing wrong with the fridge, but being so close to the bed, I was woken up on a couple of occasions.

It is our second visit and not disappointed. We spent three nights and slept soundly on a big comfortable bed in a big room with some minimal cooking facilities. Microwave and crockery. Was able to get a takeaway all nights. Dale is very friendly without being imposing. Provides separate towels for the pools. Besides the pools try the walks. My... More

We stayed in a large room with a massive bathroom and found everything to be clean, in good order and with a beautiful little outside area. We would not hesitate to stay at this motel, if... More

Perfect family acomodation with everything we needed, and being right over the road from the hot pools is a perfect place to stay. Perhaps a little dated and in need of an upgrade. We have stayed here many times and keep coming back. Lovely helpful owners.

Friendly kiwi hospitality combined with awesome-ness of allowing pets to stay (with prior approval). Nice large unit with spa bath, separate twin room for the kids and queen bed in main large living area. All beds with electric blankets. Great quality basic motel units, and so close to everything. Have now stayed twice and will do so again.

Pleasant welcome, handy to hot pools, good restaurant next door. Negatives: two lights not working in bathroom, shower door catches badly when door is opened, no kitchen sink so had to wash dishes in the bathroom, tree branches overhanging the unit scraped and rattled against the iron roof throughout the night - very disturbing.
