Not my usual family trip - but a team trip to a national hockey tournament. The Parkside was good overall - the rooms were spacious and with good cooking and dining equipment. It was nice to be by the park and the pool and surrounds were lovely. Great gas BBQ for communal dinners. The cleaners came and tidied up when... More

We are pleased to read that the team member, in the first part of this review, states that the team were happy with the standard and range of facilities we provide. We work hard to maintain a high standard consistent with our Qualmark 4 star plus rating. The second part of this review relates to a commercial agreement between Wellington... More

Excellent place just off from the town centre. Spacious rooms, great shower and beds comfortable. Washing facilities available and pool. Friendly hosts and a great base either before Abel Tasman or just after as a recovery spot. Wifi included and decent. Thank you

Stayed for two nights here, wish it was more, you step into your room and are taken aback, the layout and furnishings are lovely, the bathroom is huge with a big spa bath in the corner and still heaps of room. The surroundings of the motel are nice, good size swimming pool.

We stayed in a studio unit on the ground floor with a garden view. The room was comfortable and the shower fantastic. The hosts were accommodating and put a roll away bed in the room for our daughter as there were no other rooms available at the time of our stay. We enjoyed the quiet room with a relaxing view...

Over the Christmas period myself and my family stayed here. Our ages ranged between 3 through to 87 years of age. Some of us longer than others. We found the Hosts of this Motel to be very unwelcoming, totally unreasonable and completely unfestive. We had our family Christmas at the Motel which we thoroughly enjoyed until 8:45pm where we were... More

I stayed here for 8 nights and found it just perfect for me as I wanted to be independent but close to my brother and his wife. It was spotless, the kitchen was modern and the facilities were all there and I was delighted to find a coffee plunger as I had brought my own coffee to NZ. The towels... More

The motel was just 5 mins drive from the the main food and shopping street making it accessible yet away from the hustle. It is on the main highway and made it easy to be on our way to Franz Josef. Room was nice and clean. Comfortable stay overall

We were competing in the South Island Master's Games. This was situated conveniently close (within walking distance) of the Badminton Hall, and the main reason for selecting the Motel. There were four rooms booked, 2 for families of 3 and 2 rooms for 4 players. Our room was tidy and well set out. We had added another person late after... More
