Can't say enough about this place.
Heated pool is a favourite with the children, centrally located, clean and hosts who went about and beyond. Very grateful. Have stayed here twice and would certainly do so ago without hesitation.
Thank you for taking tre time to post your review. We are humbled by your gracious words. It's not just the children that love the pools. We look forward to your next visit.

This is an older style motel and although not as modern as some motels it is nicely furnished. I booked a unit with a spa bath. The main room contained two recliner chairs, flat screen TV, single bed, black glass table with four chairs and kitchenette with double drainer and a proper oven with hob. The single bed took up quite a bit of room and I personally felt it would’ve been better without the bed and to have had more space.
The shower room had a large shower and there was a separate bedroom with queen size bed and small flat screen TV. There was another room off the bedroom containing a Jacuzzi filled with hot thermal water and extra towels which was thoughtful. The bed was very comfortable, the whole unit was very clean and we loved the private Jacuzzi.
The motel has a swimming pool, laundry facilities, parking outside your unit, free wifi up to 100mb, discount vouchers and very friendly helpful owners – Jyl and Ian.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Yes we are an older style motel, like an older wine we get better all the time. We are 95% through our total refurbishment programe. It is great you enjoyed the LAZBOY recliner chairs, [everybody loves these--we were determined to provide really comfortable seating], new flat screened TVs, new black glass table & especially the jacussi/spa & heated pool,always popular. Trust the rest of your stay in NZ was great.

Great motel, rooms are clean & tidy and you dont need for anything. Great swimming pool which was enjoyed by all. Hosts are lovely. Certainly will return.
Thank You for making our few days away great.
Hi Garfield. We are really delighted that we were able to make your HOLIDAY SO GREAT. Also that everyone enjoyed our heated pool. Thanks for your review.

Well run motel with friendly and helpful owners. We were in a one bedroom triple spa unit over the long Easter weekend. The lounge has a single bed, two comfy reclining chairs and a small dining table with 4 chairs. The room is not very large, but acceptable for my family of three. There was a medium size tv and a DVD player was installed on request. Wireless internet was available with the first 100M for a nominal fee – after that a reasonable fee. The bedroom has a queensize bed and space for suitcases and other stuff. There are curtains in front of the main window, but no curtains in front of the windows up high close to the ceiling. If you need darkness for sleeping than you have a problem in summer time. It did not bother us. The kitchen is small, simple, but well equipped, with an oven, 4 hob electric cooker, microwave and a bar size fridge. The bathroom has a shower cubicle, a toilet and a wash-basin – all simple, but in good working order.
Behind the bedroom is a private area with a large round spa pool with (very) hot water. Great for relaxing, but a bit too hot for our 3 year old.
The motel has a kidney sized swimming pool with nice warm water (some 35 degrees C). It was kept well clean and was great for an end of day floating around and early morning swim. Our son loved it. The pavement around the pool is a bit worn, so bring footwear to walk to the pool.
The car can be parked in front of the frontdoor of each apartment.
Overall a good experience – a fit for purpose motel apartment, a nice pool and very helpful owners who helped with daily itinerary, discount vouchers and local knowledge.
Thank you for your review. It was great to meet you & we enjoyed our chats down @ the pool. For the sake of others reading your review the 1 bed units have two TVs a 19 & 32 inch, the DVD players are provided on request as they get very little use. Wireless internet is FREE for the 1st 100MG then $5 per 100MG. In the last 2 & half years with over 9000 guests in these units,this is only the 2nd time the lack of curtains over the ventilation window has been raised. [As you said it didnt bother you.] The other a shift worker sleeping during the day. Always hard to please everyone on spa temperature, can be adjusted. Motel pool kidney shaped not sized. The paving is to be completly replace this winter. Thanks again for your thoughts,and it was our delight to be able to assist you for an enjoyable stay.
Kind regards Ian & Jyl
We stayed here over the Easter break and loved it. I booked for the lazy boys and the spa pool (private). Hosts were friendly and helpful. Will stay again on buisness. Kitchen well equiped, nice lounge, and nice big spa pool. No street noise, and had a lovely swim in the heated (35 degrees) pool.
Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you booked & stayed here because of our LAZYBOY recliner chairs & the private Spas. Both get heaps of use especially by those who wish to relax. The heated pool is always extremely popular. We are sorry you didnt catch any fish tho. We can oganize a great fishing trip with a top guy, always catches fish. The last guest he took out came back with 6 beautiful rainbow trout. We look forward to your next business trip.
