This is not especially modern, but makes up for that with spotlessness, nice quality bedding and towels, electric blankets, heat pump, and wi-fi. The road noise wasn't bad by nightfall despite the busy road. It was a cold winter's day and the room warmed up very quickly. Friendly proprietors.

Clean and comfortable. Very quiet, and perfect for an overnight stay. The unit was very roomy with a separate kitchen and bathroom. Bed was very comfortable too! Within walking distance of town where there were plenty of restaurants and good shopping.

This motel is an older one that has been tastefully interior renovated. The unit we had was large and plenty of space for everything. Most amenities' are catered for and the hosts are friendly - good location and easy to find. There is one carpark per unit and the carpark is a little tight if you had a larger vehicle.

This motel is conveniently located within a short walk of the Main Street on Cambridge. We had a front room but any traffic noise didn't worry us. The bed was comfortable but only a fan and no air con for hot nights. The motel offers a guest laundry. We didn't use the pool area. The owners were very friendly and... More

This motel looked quite nice. We were given a front room. Very comfortable except for the road noise from being in the front of the motel. Room was good and had everything we needed. NZ $110.00. Very reasonably priced.

This little motel is a flash back to US roadside motels along Historic Route 66 for us. The fixtures, service and general feeling are indicative of a small family run establishment and these places are hard to find. We'd stay here again over a chain motel with brand new everything. Hooks within reach of the shower, the sliding shower door,... More

Motel is very clean, the hosts are very amenable and the pool facility is excellent. T.v. Has 50 channels and their high speed wifi (logging on is easy with the information in the room. The only 'downer' as such is the Om could do with a makeover but if you can live with that, well worth the money. Recommended stay.

The room (No. 10) was adequate. There was no hand basin in the shower/toilet although there was enough space for one. The only water source was a hand basin (not a sink) in the kitchen area where we were expected to wash dishes as well as washing hands and cleaning teeth. The bed was the hardest we have ever tried... More

Booked in for 3 nights but had to extend our stay so the staff were really accommodating and finding us another room so we could stay on even though they were fairly full. Good location - about 5-6min walk to town and restaurants. Rooms are clean and spacious with all the basics that you need. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in Unit 1 for 1 night. This had a kitchen, bathroom and separate bedroom which we didn't use. The shower was amazing, and kitchen had a full oven. It is an older style motel and some of the walls were a bit rough but as a whole it was tidy and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and... More
