The motel is in the middle of a residential street but is lovely and quiet with beautiful gardens and quite central to the towns main street. The accommodation was very clean although,as the rooms are like "pods" you can hear people moving about next door very... More

We really enjoyed our stay, Lisa and Alan were very friendly and welcoming. The two bedroom room was very spacious and comfortable, and modern. Would very highly recommend staying here! There is plenty of space in the grounds and a nice view to the gardens from the rooms.

We were welcomed by the very friendly owners, with a big smile and ansering all questions we had. Units are great, very modern, well maintained, very well looked after and very clean. The place doesn´t have a landscape to look at (like many of the other motels around the country), but they have managed to create a landscape for the... More

The very high standard of the accommodation and the gardens reflects the commitment and attitude of Lisa and Alan. They are constantly working to enhance what is already a lovely place to stay, but our strongest memory is of just how helpful and friendly they were. As has been said by others already, the rooms are of a very good... More

Amazingly friendly, easy going and serviceminded staff/owners! Even for the friendly NZ this was exceptional and quite a contrast to "laughing kiwi /YHA motueka" (that we cancelled all together due to that). Super nice rooms and at a very good price. Definately recomend this to all!

Really well placed in a quiet location but only minutes walk from the shops and restaurants, and great walks nearby. Lovely grounds, barbecue area and seats outside the rooms facing the gardens. Didn't use the pool but looked welcoming in a nice part of the gardens. Own car parking space outside your room. Rooms clean, well equipped and spacious with... More

We stayed at the Lodge last week meeting up with our daughter in New Zealand. The accommodation was first class with everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. I am sure if there had been a problem it would have been sorted straight away as Lisa and Alan couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you again - this was one... More
