Very friendly staff and a nice stay. Nice restaurant and food and fishing at your door. Don't fall in though the water's freezing. Gteat facilities, free wifi and the owners make you feel at home. The rooms were very clean.

Thanks Andrea I'm glad you enjoyed staying with us. We've been mindful of keeping the Spa in as good a condition as we can. It's difficult at times when it's in high demand but we think we've got it sorted and we're glad it was just what you needed. We try to make Booking with us as easy as possible.... More

We had planned to stay one night and continue our journey towards the South Island. After checking in the first night and meeting the owners, Kay & Brian, along with Marina in the dining room, we were elated. We went back to the reception area and booked two more nights. These people are so lovely and committed to making your... More

Location of this motel is handy for anyone heading to the mountain for a weekend, or even calling through Turangi. Friendly staff and well presented grounds. Rooms are an adequate size, well equipped and clean. Would make this out annual getaway spot and recommend to others.

Friendly helpful hosts, comfy, clean tidy room, value for money. The food from the restaurant was amazing. Would definitely go back. On the down side I have to say something has to be done about the step in where the spa is. I used it to get out and it slipped over, leaving me with a very sore badly bruised... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We are very sorry you hurt yourself in our Spa room. It can get slippery in there. We're going to put a bigger "Slippery When Wet" sign in there and take the current step away. More

Great location. Rooms is tidy and comfortable beds. Friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately no wifi in rooms. Value for money. Restaurant a bit expensive although nice bar and lounge to relax with a night cap.

Booked this place based on free wifi and location however the free wifi was only available in the restuarant and you then felt obliged to purchase their food. Was disappointing for a solo traveler. Rooms were clean but average, however the service was great and came with the bonuses of a spa, sauna and laundry facilities. Was a little noisy... More

On my very late arrival I was greeted by the two very friendly new owners. They showed me to my room that had been recently renovated. The rooms were very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was roomy & had excellent water pressure. I would definitely stay here again!!
