Having read some of the other reviews I can only sumise that there are some rooms that may be not so good and the room that we had that was great. The host was affable and friendly in a slightly eccentric Kiwi kind of way (hey learn to love it there are a lot of guys like him in NZ!) and he went out of his way to give us some local info and recommendations.
Our two bedroom unit looked like it may have been modernised recently as the kitchen was neat , tidy and functional with up to date benchtop and appliances. The rooms were similarly modernised with new carpet and flat screen TV. The spa did look a bit dated but it was fine for us.
There was also a pool and fenced off garden at the rear of the units and this was great to let our dog off for a good run around knowing that he would not make a bid for freedom. Also some basic outdoor kids toys were available (swing, trampoline etc) which our little girl enjoyed.
The place is a little out of the town centre but to be honest that was great for us as we did not want to be kept awake by late night revellers. Just up the road there is a dairy, chinese take-away, and Mole and Chicken bar/restaurant which was really good- friendly service, tasty food,and they let our dog sit with us too.
The motel may be a little on the expensive side for what it was but the convenience for us of dog friendly facilities,two bedrooms and only 30 seconds to a reserve and the lake meant we were happy to pay.
