Very noisy place. Rooms are arranged so all have expisure to main hiway which has a great deal of truck traffic ... all night. Propietor does not enforce a pleasant environment. Partiers ourt in front making noise late into the night. Beds are very uncomfortable, mostly due to inadequately sized warmers putting connectors directly under you.

Sorry you had an unpleasant experience. We very rarely get guests who make excessive noise but when we do we deal with it promptly and the vast majority of our guests have a pleasant experience. Our rooms are actually arrange directly away from the highway but yes there can be traffic noise in a town this size which has the... More

Excellent location, quiet, with its own extensive grounds make for a very relaxing stay. Very reasonable rates, and with free fast wifi. There is a bar on site, along with a very good restaurant. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and of a good size. I found the bed to be very comfortable. Water pressure in the shower was particularly good.... More

Our room was in the building farthest from the road and it was quiet. We came to the area for the excellent walks and previously much enjoyed meals near the lake. On the first night we ate at the Motel Restaurant- what a find, complete with a very competent lady chef. You do not need to go any further for... More

We had a room that gave on the lawn, the view was really nice. The room itself was huge and very clean, the hotel manager gave us an hourly weather forecast and info on everything we wanted. And there is a great restaurant on site that serves wonderful lamb shanks!

We stayed here as a stopover driving from Wellington encounter to Rotarua. What a quaint and lovely property right off the main road . We had a spacious 2 bedroom. Dined at their restaurant which was excellent. Our hosts were very kind and gracious. Had enough time in the morning to relax in the sauna before starting our journey north.

Love this place. Such a peaceful relaxing setting. This time round I got to enjoy three meals at the attached restaurant. My gosh!!! The staff were A+++. Very attentive without being over the top. The chef catered for my gluten free requests and I was not disappointed. Do take the time to try out the restaurant it is well worth... More

It was lovely to have you stay with us again. Our kitchen team are adept at tweaking their recipes to accommodate any requirements our guests may have and quite a number of our dishes can be made gluten free without too much effort (not just the ones already marked as GF on the menu). More

2 rooms with connecting door, and 2 bathrooms, ideal for families and rainy days. Free private spa. Excellent Restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Friendly people. Good starting point for walks and hikes.

Thanks very much. The two room configuration is popular for families as you say. Shut those internal doors and the kids think it's like being on holiday without Mum & Dad (& vice versa)!! More

Glad you enjoyed the stay. Yes no Sky TV here, you wouldn't believe the price they want for a dying service! We're focussing on getting better/faster/stronger broadband instead so you can stream what you want when you want. I'm picking live sport won't be stuck on Sky for much longer. More

Great location for a stopover, we only had an overnight stop en route to Wellington. Arrived about 9 o'clock at night and left at 9 o'clock the next morning. Could not fault the accommodation, clean. , comfy beds and great showers.
