“Good for short stay”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Bit shabby round the edges and parking a bit tight but for a stop over or short stay good enough. Had room 711 which faced the heated pool area which pleased the children no end, despite it being to deep for my 6yr old to reach the bottom but after a 5hour drive bought the day to a nice relaxing end.
Shower head to low for husband who is 6ft 3" to wash his hair as just managed to wet his belly button but this is something we have found in a lot of places.
Think all Hotels/Motels these day should offer free WiFi and not limit the bandwidth and then charge for anything over but that does seem to be what is on offer in most places. This was the first of 3 places we stayed on a road trip from Wellington to Auckland and we would probably stay again and this time take the time to see what the shared facilities with the hotel next door are like

Stayed in room 302. Great lake views. 60s style motel that has been partially redecorated.
Two bedroom unit, master bedroom was average with clean sheets etc. Twin bed room was small, ok for children but we were 4 adults and there was limited room as the unit was quite small. Small older style shower. not suitable for bigger cuddly people. Disturbed sleep as older floor is very creaky. if someone gets up the noise awakes you. Cleanliness was ok.

Been back for a 3rd time. Always get great service from hosts. Units are clean with everything you need. Lovely view of the lake and ducks looking for food.
The resort is very close to shops and restaurants. Great location and very good value for money.
See you again :-)

Great motel unit right on the lake front. Fantastic views across the lake. A 2 bedroom unit, it was comfortable with full kitchen facilities. Heated pool and spa were great for all ages. The units by the pool may have been a bit noisy. Direct access to the lake from the unit and good security. Friendly owners and staff.

Room Tip: Choose a unit by the lake. There are rooms by the pool but these might be a bit noisy.

Stayed here for a weekend away ,the location is awesome as long as you pay the extra to get a lake front unit ,the swimming pool was lovely temp and everything was clean and tidy.
The units are a bit dated and can be noisy through the walls and the single beds arent very big
and the price is up there for what it is,having use of the resturants next door is good but again these are a bit pricey,they are good for a coffee and snack during the day tho.
