I stayed here for two nights as part of a 29 day trip on the South Island. It is motel style accommodations with a good size room. It is in a quiet part of town and a relatively short walk to the main street. The managers are very helpful and friendly. I recall that the wifi was limited to a... More

We were two mature couples (one from the UK) who needed a spacious comfortable unit with good cooking facilities. The Equestrian Lodge ticked all the boxes. It was quiet, near to the centre of town, supermarket and restaurants . It had a swimming pool, barbecue and full laundry services. Alan and Lisa the owners couldn't have been more helpful. We...

Clean..tidy...lovely setting..superb hosts in a relatively small town. So they do well. Not 5 star but still lives up to other reviews in regard to what it offers.Driving around I would certainly reccomend this motel as a place to stay whilst exploring the park, beaches and vineyards etc. A great base for all your plans in the area. Couldn't fault... More

I cannot express how helpful the hosts,Alan andd Lisa, were with our needs. Very friendly people. I just wish that we could have stayed for more than one night. The site is very pretty, with fairy lights and very well maintained gardens. We stayed in a two bed & it had everything we needed and was very homely and comfortable.... More

Only stayed here one night but found it delightful. The units are spacious and nicely decorated. We were particularly impressed with the lovely bathroom. The gardens are also impressive. There is also a spa pool and swimming pool which we didn't use but they looked good too. The hosts were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The motel is conveniently located,... More

Wow, what a lovely place. Bearing in mind we have toured the south island and stayed in some really great places this one is at the top of the list. Great welcome on arrival followed by showing us to our room which was just perfect. The room was a double bedroom with lounge and kitchen area. The facilities were excellent,... More

They have big and small rooms. We had a big apartment with two bedrooms. WIFI available but 100 MB limited. Hosts aware very friendly and helpful. Supermarket around the corner. You can eat outside, but your neighbors might do so too, so no private talks possible.

This is our second time here in the last four days and in two different rooms. The rooms are superbly well maintained and very tastefully finished. Lovely pool, nicely maintained gardens and nice clean laundry. Alan and Lisa are very nice hosts and clearly work hard to deliver a great experience. We would highly recommend this motel as well one... More

My wife and I stayed at the Equestrian in February of 2015. This is a spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable motel with a small kitchen and a patio area that opens onto a very pretty yard, garden and pool area. A BBQ area and laundry facilities are available for guests. The motel is is within walking distance of very good... More

This is a well-run, friendly, helpful, clean, comfortable, ordered, well-appointed, beautifully situated motel of 15 units. There are laundry and ironing facilities on site separate from the units. Alan and Lisa are very personable and make a point of finding out how they can help you organise your day/book trips for you/discuss options. Alan even gave us a map of... More
