We weren't planning on staying in Geraldine. We were planning on driving to Lake Tekapo. We stopped in Geraldine for a coffee and to book our accommodation. Once we started looking, everything in Tekapo and anywhere near was booked. We therefore decided to stop n Geraldine and grab the first place we could find on Agoda. (Later found that walk... More

Everything one needs for a night's stay. Comfortable, clean, good firm beds. Kitchen area and bathroom were spotless. Found the bathroom fan and spa pool motor quite noisy - we were concerned that the noise would disturb guests next door. Friendly check-in and check-out.

Stayed a few weeks ago (room 11) on route from Wanaka to Christchurch whilst travelling the South Island. Room was spotlessly clean, spacious, heating worked very well, bathroom quite large (could do with shelf) with lovely thick towels and great shower. The room had everything that you would need. Wifi was free but couldn't get it to work. Once tv... More

Greetings, Thank you for your kind review, and thoughtful suggestions. I agree with your comment that 'light sleepers' would do better on the left hand side of the complex, as these studios are protected from road noise. Also, the studios are slightly smaller (accommodate up to 2 people, where as your studio accommodated 3 people). We are a 4 Star... More

I have stayed in many Motels etc over the years but this was the darkest Room we have ever stayed in.

Had booked what I thought was a nice room (No 15) but it is right by the road and is noisy. Worse than that, the bathrooms have these horrible noisy fans which the traveller in the room next to me got up to use at 2.30 in the morning and it stayed on until 5am.....

Greetings We are sorry that your stay with us was not an enjoyable experience for you. We have checked the fan in the next door unit, but cannot account for the noise that disturbed you.

We enjoyed out one night stay travelling through. We stayed in a larger spa room. The bed was comfortable, bathroom large and well designed and there was a well appointed kitchenette. We were taken with the quality of the fit out. Recommended

We decided to stop for a couple of nights in this pretty village. The motel was clean and well equipped. The shower blows your head off and it's only a couple of minutes walk to the main town. Although the motel is on the main road it wasn't noisy at all. The owners have two friendly cats and the owners... More

This unplanned stop gave us a decent clean room with a king bed, but at $140, we found it pricier than others we stayed in that were similar. Perhaps that's what we get for walking in off the street rather than booking ahead. Location convenient to walk into town for supper.

Hi Patricia, Patricia thank you for your comments. I am sorry that you felt that we were overpriced. We are a 4 Star Qualmarked property, and believe that our pricing is in line with other similar 4 Star Qualmarked motels. We do have some lower priced Studios (not Spa or the larger two bed Studios).
