We were looking for a relaxing room with any sort of kitchen after a long day of driving and to end our great trip in NZ. We booked this motel the morning before arriving and it was exactly what we needed. Brigid was such a friendly face after having a long day and settled us into our room with an entire box of movies! We were welcomed by a comfy bed with heated blankets, a warm room, and a complete kitchen. The next day after touring Tekapo we arrived back to mini chocolate bars on our towels, the perfect treat to end our day. The following day, we checked out and arrived in Christchurch before realizing we forgot one of our bags. We had called Brigid immediately and she had tried to text, call, and email us. She arranged Geoff to meet us half way to Christchurch to save us from driving the entire way back (over 4 hours round trip). We were so fortunate and grateful for their amazing act of kindness!! We had to fly out at 6am the following day.
We 100 percent recommend Mt. Dobson Motel; Brigid and Geoff are amazing people who offer excellent hospitality and the perfect place to stay!
