Super frIendly and helpful makes all the difference after a long day on the road. Car to town for dinner is truly appreciated. With so much emphasis on furnishings and fit out now days it is so nice to find a place that sparkles because of the service. If you value friendly service you won't be disappointed

We stayed here a couple of times it was so good. Lovely people who are so helpful to welcome you and the units have everything you need. All spotlessly clean. The units nearer the road we thought were nicer than out the back and noise not a problem but you would not be disappointed with either

We enjoyed our stay there as it had everything we needed with a nice touch of the electric fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped and the place is spotless. Gill is very friendly and helpful. Easy parking right outside the room and we will stay again on our next visit to NZ

We stayed at the Esplanade as part of a family group & were super happy with the accommodation & service. Our unit was spacious, super clean, warm & quiet. Plenty of parking on site & friendly helpful hosts who know the area well. Excellent value for money in a great little town. :o)

Brilliant find in Gore. Priced a little higher than I would have liked for a country town but quality and cleanliness second to none. Gill was a good host. We cooked a meal there and an extractor fan for the kitchen would have been a bonus, instead of leaving the door open to the winter air.

Everyone say 'Excellent' and 'Fantastic' on TripAdvisor pages. I would even add the fact that not only the place is clean, lovely decorated, friendly Hosts, but there is two sides of the coin; the...

We stayed at the motel for about 3 weeks. Jack & Gillian could not have been better hosts. Nothing was too much trouble, they even moved us into a bigger room at no extra charge as we had so much luggage having moved to NZ from the UK just 2weeks prior. Gillian's local knowledge is fantastic. The rooms were very... More

The rooms were very spacious & we were impressed with the cleanliness. They had all the necessary things & in good order. Shower pressure was OK but the doors were a bit wonky. Kitchen was good & there were plenty of plates etc. My partner & I have stayed in a lot of hotels/motels & it is always nice when... More

What a neat place to stay and such warm and caring hosts. Due to a sudden and serious illness with one of our party our lives were turned upside down. Thanks to Gilliam and Jack for taking care of their partner till we could get someone there to be with her. Our hosts were very welcoming and the motel was... More
