This motel does have the only waterfront in Akaroa, as advertised, but you pay too hefty a price for it; the amenities/decor/facilities are that of an basic NZ$100 motel, but the price is $200. I'd expected a lot more in the way of up-to-date decor, comfortable bed, etc for the money. We got a studio motel unit with additional small bedroom, but the kitchen lacked a microwave, fire extinguisher, or smoke detector (required by NZ law), and the bed was saggy and allowed little sleep. Not too flash for $200!!
