We were greeted by our pleasant and friendly hosts, Gordon and Cheryl. The room was spacious, clean, well appointed and the most comfortable king size bed to get a great nights sleep. Close to attractions and fast Internet connection. Highly recommend this accommodation.

Really lovely hosts at Capri Court - well informed about the local area, willing and eager to help in any way possible, full of good suggestions of attractions that might be of interest, even providing a great array of menus of local restaurants and takeaway places. The location is very good also, handy to everything you might want to drive to. The rooms are a reasonable size, the bed was very comfortable, and there was no issue with noise. I know others have commented favourably on the big spa in the bathroom, but we found it quite awkward not having a separate shower recess, and having the shower in the spa is potentially dangerous for the elderly, anyone with mobility problems, or small children. No hand rails to grip either. On the other hand, the bathrooms are very nicely appointed with a range of good toiletries, which we appreciated. Rooms are not air conditioned (a pedestal fan is provided), and screens would have been welcome to keep out the flies. Not necessarily a place that will suit everyone, but you would go a long way to find nicer hosts.

Thank you so much for for comments, we do our very best to make our guests stay as pleasant and informative as possible and we are pleased that you appreciated the service. We did not realise you need of a walkin shower box or mobility assistant handles for the spa and if you had of mentioned this to us we would have most gladly placed you in a room with both walkin shower and also handles on the spa pool and bathroom areas to help make your stay feel more safe. For this we apologise but thank you for mentioning it. Regards

The third and final night of taking overseas visitors around places in New Zealand, we were booked to stay at Capri. What a delightful surprise! For the same cost that we'd paid elsewhere for inferior accommodation, we were blown away at the spaciousness of the unit allocated to us.

The jet-spa was fantastic, and my guests were over the moon with it. The place was impeccably clean, and the beds very, very comfortable with gorgeous linen. Our only regret about our trip was that we didn't spend three nights at this motel, and take day trips every day.

Highly recommended. I now want to return with my husband, so he can experience Capri Motel. Very friendly owners and staff. Cannot fault our stay.

A small but comfortable room, we were there during very warm weather and although there is no air conditioning there is a fan available in the room.
Good spa bath and excellent king sized bed, especially good for those of us with back problems.
Good WiFi, which is free.
