Sunset Motel was a great place to stay and, we think, one of the better options in a small town. The rooms were clean, comfortable and airy. We stayed in a mountain view room, which was reasonably priced and did have views of the mountains. Mt Cook even dared to show its face more than once! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen fairly well equipped. The bathroom spaciaous and the heated towel rack, a familiar site on our 3 week trip around the South Island, a pleasant little touch. The Motel also has a laundry with washers and dryers that we found very helpful.
The motel is located within a 10-15 minute walk to the town, certainly not to far to wander for an evening meal. The location was nice as the motel did not look into any unpleasantness or other motels, but instead a lovely English garden of what seemed to be a house. We found it quite and peaceful there, no helicopter noise problems. Otherwise we were surrounded by vacant farming land. The staff there were helpful and pleasant. We would definitely recommend to stay at Sunset Motel!
