Much nicer room than we expected. A suite. Great service and help with tours, and connections. The small café attached to the hotel was great. Excellent dinner and best breakfast we had in two weeks in NZ.

I stayed on 2 separate nights 22/09/16 & 25/09/16. The rooms are very well appointed, and would stay there again and will let my friends know about the motel. Also I had an evening meal at their restaurant and the meal and service were top notch. Cheers Ken

The staff were very helpful and friendly. When we arrived in the shuttle service provided by the motel, it was late and cold. The wonderful staff had the heater going for us to settle into a very comfortable room. The room was spotless and we had a very pleasant stay.

Clean and comfortable. The room was very well appointed. Staff were very helpful. Would certainly stay there again. Far enough away from the airport not to be disturbed by aircraft noise as well as highway noise.

We got back still too early but they had organised our room to get in... More

Stayed in one of the business rooms which was surprisingly nice. The room was a little cold though but the bed had electrical warmer and it was quite comfortable. It is basically a motel wanting to be a hotel. Very practical if you travel by car. Good restaurant and food.

We stayed here the final night of our South Island campervan trip and it was excellent. We had a kitchenette and 1br apartment for very reasonable rate. The staff was super service oriented and they offer 24/7 airport transfers. They have restaurant but also BBQ facilities really full service.
