We were booked for two nights but due to finishing business early we ended up only staying the one night. Bit disappointed it was only the one as this was a very well presented motel. The layout meant it seemed like we weren't in the next tenants pockets. There was a pool/picnic area, and the gardens were well landscaped in... More

The town centre location is convenient for most restaurants and stores. Our welcome was friendly and helpful. We booked a studio. On the downside, the complex will never win an architectural award and there was too much tarmac and not enough greenery for our liking. But who worries too much about that at the end of a long day? Our... More

We bowled in here, very late and exhausted from tramping, expecting nothing from this remote town, and asked for the most basic offering. We were blown away to walk into a lovely room and, especially, by the gorgeous bathroom. This place is stylish and has many little touches that make it special (including locally-made toiletries, nice crockery, an abundance of... More

Great big rooms, fantastic water pressure. Pool needs some work, but was too cold to use when we were there anyway. What did suprise us when we arrived was that the owner knew how long we were staying but did not know which standard of room we had booked, so we had to show our confirmation email !! We thought...

Booked to stay at this motel, long ago - based on TripAdvisor and other reviews. The motel is a decent standard for a motel in New Zealand, room size is good, bathroom/wetroom was more than adequate. We were a bit disappointed by the information provided at check-in, either about the room or things to do in the local area, but... More

We were luckily upgraded as other guests stayed longer than expected. This was a real bonus. The units have been upgraded very tastefully and the bathroom was amazing. Great shower. Plenty of space in the bedroom and the lounge. We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer at the motel and in the town.

WOW WOW...what more do you want. I stayed for 2 nights and it was so warm and beautiful. I walked in to brand new carpet, a large t.v. lovely framed photos on the walls and an assortment of teas and coffees to drink after my long journey. Later I had a shower with fantastic water pressure in a bathroom which... More

Stayed here for one night. The units are a decent size with really nice bathrooms with excellent water pressure. Nice big TV if you want to kick back, and there is a nice pool to cool down in. Maybe a little pricy but a very decent place to stay.
