What a gorgeous view on the mountains from the veranda of the room. Friendly front desk staff. Restaurants can be reached in 10..15 minutes walking, which is not a punishment in such a gorgeous environment. There is a small kitchen in the room. Parking spaces...More
Sunset Motel was the best stay we have had so far in NZ!

We stayed here one night and must say the room was fantastic and the views from the veranda were stunning. The only thing we would say is the shower's are not very powerful, but this may be due to pressure. We ordered the breakfast for...More

Thank you for your question. I'm not sure why this has come up now when you stayed in 2012. I can't find any reviews on tripadvisor from you. As you can imagine many things have been replaced, changed or fixed in 5 years... More
Thank you for your question. I'm not sure why this has come up now when you stayed in 2012. I can't find any reviews on tripadvisor from you. As you can imagine many things have been replaced, changed or fixed in 5 years. Everything you have mentioned has not really been an issue. In regards to beds everyone has their own preference with how firm the mattress is etc.
Doing your own dishes is more of a consideration, but our cleaners check these dishes every day when the rooms are cleaned. This is standard over all motels in New Zealand and the world. We have never had a complaint or issue raised with any health inspectors for this.
Questioning the other reviews we have had with high scores is a little disappointing. All of our reviews are given by guests and not paid for or enticed by us in any way.
As we don't have your details other than your name on tripadvisor I have no way to look back at your booking.
Not sure why this has been brought up 5 years later. If we had been told of the issues during your stay things could have been remedied easily.
