“As Clean as I've seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

The Helensborough Motor Inn is very 1970ish but so so clean and everything you need. The bed was very comfortable. A Convenience store is close by. Friendly hosts make for a pleasant stay. A good place to use as a base if travelling round South Otago lots of intersting things in area.

The owner was great! He told me about Kaka pt and the lighthouse that was nearby that I would not have known about. It was the most beautiful coast that I have ever seen. The room was nice and very clean. They also gave me complimentary cards for the internet which was a definite plus. Very cool people who run this place!

Room Tip: I would recommend a room in the back to avoid any road noise.

Clean, comfortable and ticking all the boxes. We travelled around New Zealand for 7 weeks and this is one of the best motels. Simple things: comfortable, spacious, good shower, good heating, lots of light, good kitchen facilities, etc.

Great little motel in Balclutha. We stayed in a studio unit for a night which was clean and comfortable, it had a a small kitchen unit, comfortable bed. We stayed in unit 11 which is near the rear of the property so no road noise from the highway. Would recommend with confidence.

We've now stayed at the Helensborough Motor Inn twice this year and it's great. Very friendly and helpful hosts, clean, fast and easy wifi. The only reason I haven't given them 5 stars is that on our last stay we were put in a room where someone had smoked. When I asked for a different room they said, yes we know it's smokey. I wish they had thought of that before putting us in there.
