What a wonderful motel! One of very few in the very best category that we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many. Clare's welcome was warm and friendly and the very well behaved little boy 'helping' with the watering hose just made us feel that this was a home from home. The motel is new(first anniversary the day before we arrived) and is clean and bright. We were in room 12 which is a one bedroom unit on the first (upper) floor. It was very well equipped throughout with an excellent large flat screen tv in the lounge with 3 Skysports channels and ESPN. There was a second smaller TV in the bedroom which we didn't even use. Bathroom was spacious with a bath and an excellent shower. Clare and Richard were friendly, helpful and altogether charming hosts.
On previous visits to NZ, we have stayed in 2 of the better motels in Cambridge but this one beats them hands down...they don't even come close.
We stayed for 4 nights, using it as a base for day trips around Waikato and what a great idea that was. Hamilton gardens is very close and we saved our trip around the gardens for our final day when we were returning to AKL very late in the day. The gardens are well worth exploring. We ended our day on the first 3 days by sitting by the lake at the gardens reading books, soaking up the late afternoon sun and watching the ducks and the children chasing them. Pure relaxation.
So, great motel,great location and terrific value for money.
Scoff's deliver excellent food to the motel from an excellent menu which is much wider than most takeaway places.
