The motel was one of the best properties we visited during our two-week trip across New Zealand. It is located right opposite the beach, a short walk south of the town center. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners who showed us the rooms and offered us a bottle of milk for the coffee of the following morning. They were some of the nicest, friendliest and most helpful people we met in New Zealand, giving out suggestion on which wineries to visit and what to do.
The rooms were huge with a nice living room, spacious bed and big bathroom. WiFi is provided free of charge and works perfectly. When inside the room, you could not hear any noise, neither from other rooms nor from the road. We also noticed that the room was very clean.
All-in-all we would suggest staying here. For the price paid, the motel offered a wonderful value. The fact that it is often completely booked weeks in advance prooves this point.
