We stopped over for the night in Glenorchy on our way to the Dart River jet boat ride. Booked this motel in the morning, very easy and very happy with accommodation, nice and clean and good value. Owners very helpful so can't complain about any parts of our stay. This is a standard motel in a remote location, so don't... More

Yes this place could do with some loving as it does look a little tired but the room was clean, big and well equipped.. We liked the price we paid for one night.. Would stay here again.. It's ideally located with a walk up to the lodge for a coffee or beer..

This is a small comfy motel run by the hospitable Corinne (and Thor who we didn't meet). It's an excellent base for exploring the top of Lake Wakatipu and the approaches to the Routeburn Track as well as Lord of the Rings locations if you are that way inclined. Very comfortable with everything you need to be self contained. We... More

Two weeks after we stayed there for one night I am struggling to recall much about the interior of this motel. It was a pleasant sort of ramshackle place with a blooming climbing rose out the window and a brick cobbled courtyard and it was nice to sit on the little table-and-chairs outside the door to our room and look...

Excellent valued motel especially considering the unique location. Sure this is not luxury accomodation, just good basic good value. The motel is located handily close to the boardwalk which I walked to for sunrise. The hotel is quiet and reasonably well equipped. The owner was very friendly and when discovered I was a keen photographer gave me some handy local... More

The motel's website describes this as a "no frills accommodation." This is a good value for a budget motel. Our ensuite room was clean, quiet, comfortable, secure, and you could easily make a simple meal in its small kitchen, though we dined out. There was a hob, fridge, microwave, sink, dishes, cutlery. Parking was right in front for easy unloading... More

After we had dropped our companions at the Roteburn Trail Station it was only a short drive to this motel which we had chosen for its location and moderate rates and we were not disappointed.The one room unit had a very comfortable bed, enough space to sit and chat and have breakfast, a small but tidy bathroom and an inviting...

This motel meets all the requirements for a quiet night after 4 days riding. Nothing special, but a comfortable bed, wifi and an easy walk to restaurants. Reasonable price and much quieter than Queenstown. It would have been ideal for the night before we started if we had known and perhaps the riding company should advertise it for that..

If you need a room for a hot shower after a trek or climb in this area then this is the spot for you. Facilities are basic and the whole building in dated but it is a safe haven for the weary tramper/climber. My mate and I had 2 or 3 nights here whilst suffering in the nearby mountains and... More
