Stopped for one night on our tour of the South Island. Greeted by a lovely man on reception who showed us to our room and couldn't have been more helpful. A lot of road works going on directly outside the hotel which he was very apologetic for and kept us in the loop of what was going on. The water... More

Very nice welcome. Lovely unit although it is a little frugal with shower toiletries.A clothes hook or more would be very useful in the bathroom. Bathroom mists up severely, no ventilation. Spacious unit. Good parking. Good location.

This place is nice and central, about a 10 min walk to local shopping centre. Rooms a good size, traffic could be a problem if you have a front unit, as it's on the main road. Units nice and tidy, bed was very comfy. Good car parking. Family that run it are very nice and helpful.

The owners/staff at this motel were incredibly rude and inhospitable. The owners would scour at any visiting guest, pester and disturb your privacy with frequent uncalled for and irrelevant visits. Moreover, the condition of the rooms is utterly dismal. Smelt very old and musty and the cleaning efforts were incredibly poor and unhygienic. Would not recommend!

We stayed two nights here. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and tidy, and surprisingly spacious. The bed was very comfortable too! Little things could have been better, such as there were no tissues in the room and the toiletries, tea and coffee were very basic. However, it's only a 15min walk to town... More

I am a regular user of the motel. I have always been greeted so politely and they're happy and chatty people. Even the relief staff member was so welcoming. I'm always greeted in the morning when staff are working with a smile and pleasant chat. As I have also been in the industry I know how what to expect. I... More

Arrived to stay the night as we were doing one of the local wine tours. Greeted by two lovely owners who allowed us to leave our bags prior to the check in time. Once we arrived back we were kindly given some complementary milk and shown to our room. Very comfortable bed, quiet and my partner was especially thrilled as... More
