Nice clean rooms with good furniture. Quiet, and just off the main road. Has Wi-Fi in each room, but we did not use it. Has two entrances one being onto the main shopping street which is handy. We would definitely stay again. Thanks.

Nice effort in outdoor garden and general feel of the place. Great place for the price. 15 minutes walk from downtown. We are renting a 4 bedroom unit. The unit is clean, and spacious with a large bathroom and kitchen. Although close to the main road the place is very quiet.

With a few to choose from we decided on here, very glad we did. Clean and tidy and we enjoyed our stay. Not too noisy at all, close to town. We have stayed elsewhere in the past and discovered this lovely motel is a tad better for not much more at all really

We stayed here for one night and was surprized it was much nicer than the photos. Very clean and comfortable. Good quality furniture and comfortable bed. Nice looking out at their beautiful gardens. Would certainly stay again.

This 2 bedroom unit was more like the size of a house! Great value, very clean free wifi and lots of room. Nice quiet area and the owners helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would be happy to recommend this motel especially if you can stay a couple of days.

Hobson's choice, but i'd choose to stay there again. The rooms were clean, and spacious. Breakfast was layed out in our rooms the night before. We were a group of 35 and everyone agreed that this was a good place to stay.

We booked a studio unit for one night. The room was large, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom good. Quiet location only a short walk into the town. The only thing that wasn't great about this motel was the kitchen. There were hot plates that you could plug in for cooking if you were keen, but they looked like... More

Our intention was to stay just one night here on our way north, but the sheer attractiveness of the place prompted us to book a further night. The units were very well thought out, providing comfort and taste. The small swimming pool contained seeds from the trees, but we were assured that the chlorine levels were OK. Wifi was free,...

We stayed one night. The reception was not welcoming but was efficient in the sense of giving us our key and directing us to the room. The room was a spacious concrete block motel room. Reasonably well appointed in terms of satellite TV and kitchen facilities. Bathroom was not too cramped shower over bath. The armchairs looked like they needed... More

We arrived here late in the day having looked at the outside of another motel and decided to see what else was on offer. We had been staying in holiday house style accommodation ("Baches") but decided to stop in Dargaville because we had run out of time to get to a more tourist location. Our first impression was uncertainty -... More
