The room was very clean, airy, sunny and quiet. It was very roomy. After a terrible previous night at an awful motel in Lake Tekapo, this was a very welcome relief. There is a kitchenette with a small fridge. When you check in, they ask if you want cream or light milk for your coffee/tea. There is a little picnic area and swing set for kids to play outside. It is a quiet area, even though it's off the main road and near the beach. We were there just the one night but we didn't hear the roar of the ocean nor train going by. We walked across the train tracks to check out the beach. It's a good walk away from the center of town. You can walk or drive. I liked the idea that it's away from the town center anyway. Even though it offers free internet, the hosts give you a card w/ the access password and it can be quite slow or interruptive. If you want to use a second device, you have to ask for another card. The hosts are very accomodating though and very friendly. I would definitely come back here again or refer people to this cute beachside motel.
