I'd like to challenge Anthony Melchiori to find anything wrong with this motel. The room was spotless, Large flat panel TV in lounge and small TVs in both bedrooms. Neatness of the utensils bordered on OCD. Ian and Chis were fantastic hosts. If I could give it six stars I would.

We had originally planned on staying two nights, coming over on the ferry from the north island, this was such a great place to stay I'm sorry we couldn't. Our ferry was cancelled due to bad weather and when I called the Motel to explain and cancel our first evening, he was so pleasant and helpful. We were not charged a cancellation fee for less than 24 hours notice, but we were still keeping our one night as we had previously booked.

When we checked in - we were helped to our room and offered milk for the morning. The room was very clean and very comfortable. The kitchenette was perfect and the parking was free. I hope to be able to visit again and discover the area!

Very good service and very friendly host. Thank you for the advise in regards to places for dinner. Definitely I will come again and enjoy the relaxing stay. Even though is not in the heart of the city , it is close enough.

Very helpful and friendly managers and staff. Excellent location with good off street parking. We were in a ground floor apartment which makes it easier if you have heavy suitcases. Daily servicing was very good and information on local activities provided by reception was appreciated. We would stay there again.
