Extra towels was no problem and having the guest laundry right next door was so convenient. Everything was clean and fully supplied. Parking was easy and an open area near an... More

We stayed here two nights and were very happy with the accommodation. Spacious rooms, modern, well equipped, with comfortable beds and is one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. We only ever dealt with Alan, but he was pleasant and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The motel was only a short walk to supermarkets, shops and cafes... More

Only problem was beds were too comfortable and went to sleep without enjoying a movie first. Close to supermarket. Brilliant bathroom. Real luxury after some scungy places we had stayed at in South Island. Close to Kaiteriteri for our start... More

Owners and all staff we met were friendly. Really relaxing set up- one night we wander into town for dinner and another night we went to New World around the corner and got... More

We enjoyed the Bird songs from the bush next to the lodge, had a lovely walk in the bush. Less than 10mins walk, get the town centre. Room is very clean,... More

Our family of four stayed at the Equestrian for six nights over the new year and it was fantastic. We had a two bedroom unit - spacious, spotlessly clean, well-equipped and a lovely setting looking out to the swimming pool and spa room. The owners, Alan and Lisa, rate as the best hosts we've ever come across. There is a... More
