    The hotel room was extremely spacious and modern and even had a spa bath. Walking distance to town and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. Wifi and parking are also very good. Nice place to stay!

    The accommodation was very clean and well maintained. The room was spacious and well designed. The owners were very welcoming and gave us advice about local restaurants and things to do. It was an excellent base from which to visit the Mt Cook National Park.

    We stayed for 2 nights. Our welcome was very positive and friendly. We were very comfortable in well appointed units. The units were very clean with all the touches travellers require. The motel is within walking distance of the town centre. Highly recommended.
