Was one of just a few people staying here and i highly recommend it. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were comfortable and cosy. I appreciated the heatpump and the arm chair in the room. In summer the outdoor table would have been a great place to chill. There was a kitchenette, and it is in walking distance... More

We spent a night here last weekend. Set just off the main road it is surprisingly quiet and has a beautiful private rural outlook off the patio. Right by a supermarket, bars, restaurants, cafes, shopping and all this small town has to offer. Room was spotless and clean and I did not want to get out of the large chair... More

Very good motel. The drive to get there is worth the effort but allow time for stops on the zig zaggy drive. Staff excellent with good advice, rooms clean and well maintained. Driving on to Cape Farewell head was a great view. Wharariki beach is outstanding despite dirt road.
