To be fair to this little country motel I think some of the comments are very harsh after all your only paying $130 a night. I would call it very cosy and warm. It was a very wet and freezing cold night but with the tiny electric heater and electric blankets on it was very snug and we had an...

This is a great little standard motel situated in a spot that's great for breaking up a cross country drive. We were late arriving (check in closes at 2000) but the manager left us what we needed. All clean as you'd expect.

Motel is older 70's style and set back from the main street, so is quiet. I think we must have arrived at dinner time, because we got short shrift at Reception and didn't feel welcome. Inside is fairly spacious but not well maintained; not a single light bulb worked in the living area of our unit, but Reception had closed...

The motel itself was clean and spacious, check in was relatively casual and easy. Unfortunately there was only one restaurant opened during our stay, and the town was empty with not much to do. Lake Tekapo isnt too far away, i recommend staying there instead.

The office only opens from 8-10am and 2-4pm. I called and left a message, emailed but no reply or return call. It's very inconvenient that the staff are not contactable out of these hrs. The lady at reception was very keen to get on with her job and didn't seem very friendly. Kitchen needs updating. The hair dryer, one electric...

This was the last stop before we head back to Christchurch. Outside might seem like it is not tidy but inside it's cosy. Feels like home. It's clean from bedroom to kitchen and toilet. Although don't expect high standard cause it's like outdated motel. And there's ni hairdryer but don't know if can borrow from the office didn't bother since...

Great little motel in a small country town. Clean, comfortable, easy parking right next to the room. If you don't want to drive from Mount Cook all the way to Christchurch, this is a fantastic place to stop.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit for one night. It was spotlessly clean and really spacious. The small kitchen was well equipped for a short stay. Beds were really comfortable. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. A great place to stay.
