What a find! The units were immaculatley clean, well appointed & comfortable. We suspect that the furniture was very new and tasteful. The owner was very welcoming & helpful regarding things to do & places to eat. Laundry facilites were most useful! We slept SO well that we slept though 2 alarms & then realised we were close to our... More

Stayed here for 2 nites in February. Convenient to town, good kitchen facilities. We thought the motel was amazingly adequate for most any stay. Very comfortable furnishings and excellent bath. We even had a visit from a neighborhood cat which brought us a little taste of home! Highly recommended.

I found the whole experience here a sheer delight as Gore seemed to be in a pleasant time warp which brought back great memories of past hence. The rooms are almost in my opinon art deco which...

My wife and I stayed here for one night in mid-January. The staff were very helpful and polite which was nice after such a long drive from Milford Sound. The room was spacious and reasonably appointed considering the price of the accommodation. I would not describe the decor or facilities as modern but they are nice enough. The room was... More

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.
