My husband and I stayed at the Fountain Lodge Motel on two occasions during 08-09. Each time we had an awesome stay the managers are two of the nicest people we have met. Very helpful in terms of finding what we needed in the area, knowledgeable on local information, could not do enough to help us. The motel is charming and a great location to the travel to the north of the island and easy access to town. The rooms have a good view, cleaned daily and helpful staff. The pool was great too cool off in on the hot sunny NZ days, bbq also handy. Local bus station a 10 min walk. we would recommend the Fountain Lodge to others and will hopeful return one day soon. The experience and comments made by the "boatie and family" must have their motels mixed up or else they were experiencing a bad day.. Oh and the internet was excellent good value for money most other motels charge for internet access no limit on time used!!
