We stayed here between journeys on the coastal pacific and tranzalpine trains. Its 10 minutes or so drive from the motel to the station and the owner was there to meet us and take us back the next morning which was great. We had an upstairs room which was very warm due to the extreme temperatures at the time, unfortunately there was no air conditioning but we did have a fan. The beds were reasonably comfortable, we had a double and single and slept well. The room was quite large and had a decent shower.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of a Golf Convention. The units, whilst displaying a few minor maintenance issues, were clean and a good size for our needs. We were upstairs but the stairs have a good angle so not too steep. The staff are friendly and of great help with advice for where to go/eat etc. Highly recommend.

We needed to be close to the train station so we reserved at the Arena. We were so pleased at how clean and will stocked the room was. Every amenity you can think of. The owner, Jessica, was very helpful and even gave us a ride to the station in the morning.

We were so pleased we found the Arena Motel! Our expectations were exceeded. The room was large with plenty of light. It was spotlessly clean and well presented. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom adequate. There was a small kitchen area with all the basics. The welcome we received was exceptional. Jessica met us at the train station and was a wealth of information. Our luggage was stored while we travelled which was a huge help. There were many repeat guests staying which is always a good sign. We highly recommend this accommodation.

Stayed in the motel night before coastal pacific rail journey. Room was big and spacious, with good, clean facilities. Wifi was good and room had plenty of recommendations for eating. Owner was friendly and helpful, allowed us to check in slightly earlier then usual. Arranged free shuttle to railway easily with the owner, very convenient.
