After a long drive from Arrowtown, this Motel did not live up to our expectations, it surpassed them! After a warm and helpful welcome, we were shown to the room which was spacious, clean and well equipped. We took the advice of the staff and took a walk (in the dark) up a nearby track to see the Glow worms. The Motel enjoys a great view of the glacier (which is a few minutes away by car) and is about a minutes walk from the shops. I would definitely recommend the Motel to other travelers.
