This was our first stop in the South Island. We arrived first as we were meeting our friends from Australia later. When we arrived we were impressed with mostly everything. The staff were friendly, the rooms (both ours and my friends) were comfortable and clean and spacious. Even though they are situated close to the airport and not so close to the city this suited us as we had a car. It would be a little out of the way if you did not have a car. The motel is relatively new so of course everything is new. As we were travelling on the Tranz Alpine train the next day and even though it was not to the airport our hosts very kindly took us to the train station. Unfortunately we got the wrong day and were stuck for 1 more nights accomodation! We rang the motel and they did not have any rooms, but were extremely helpful and recommended another hotel where we could stay. To us this is going above and beyond and we appreciated it very much. We would recommend this hotel to stay and would stay again if we went back to New Zealand in the future
