A warm welcome awaited us on arrival. Our room was well equipped and very clean and comfortable.Not to far from town and very quiet. A weekend away for a special occasion made all the more enjoyable by the friendly staff and owners. Look forward to staying again some time

Have stayed here a couple times, although it is a little bit more expensive than I would normally expect to pay, the rooms were very modern, tidy and comfortable. I was really impressed by how welcoming, helpful and friendly the staff were.

Manager was extremely welcoming and helpful. Place was very clean and comfortable. Quiet location and yet very near places to eat/shop. Very good price for the size of the apartment. Ashburton is a better place to stop at than Geraldine en route to Lake Tekapo/Mount Cook from Christ Church as it is a bigger town.

The motel is back from the road, and just a few minutes walk from the main shopping area. Very friendly welcome, and help with taking our luggage upstairs. Unit was very clean, and the bed was wonderful. Free internet, though a little slow. Would stay again if in the area.

Very nice newish private units in small block, and set well off the road. We were welcomed by the very friendly proprietors and treated to a cup of coffee immediately. Wifi reception in our end unit was an issue, but we were told that this should be rectified within a few weeks.
