Our stay here was pleasant.We were met with a real nice welcome from Lynn at the office.As we are country folk the trains were a bit of an issue,but nothing we couldn't handle.In fact watching the commuters from our upstairs room was somewhat of a novelty.The odd freight train gave the place a bit of a shake,but that just added to the adventure we were on.The studio unit we had was nice and clean,and was very comfortable.This motel was handy to the supermarket and Dressmart just down the road.We were travelling to the south Island by Interislander,so was an ideal spot to stay.If the opportunity arises we would stay here again.
