Reviewed November 5, 2010

Stayed here recently with my wife on our driving tour of NZ. We preffer places that have own ammenities for preparing light meals and this did us perfectly. Wasnt a huge fan of the 'tomizone' internet service but that would be my only gripe.

This Motel had pretty good facilities for a couple travelling but it spoilt it's first impressions of a 2 room suite by having a single bed in the "lounge area" making it very hard to move around. It had a cook-top as well as a microwave with plenty of utensils in the Kitchette making it easy to prepare a meal. The owner was a pleasant lady who provided us with all the information and maps we needed to explore the area but this motel is situated out of town and down a dead end street making it difficult to find and not close to the town.

This hotel is rated as "Gold" by Gold Chain Motels but is in reality little more than a 3 star establishment.

This hotel might have seen better days. Premises are old and shabby, walls are paper thin and during the night I was able to listen to my neighbour's TV program if I werent watching TV myself in my room. Reception is not always available but owners are on site and therefore things get looked after throughly.
On the positive side, breakfast was decent, there are plenty of tourist information on site, some dating back to the 90s which is good as it gives you a better idea of what's reliable and what's not.
The best feature of the place is a library of years and years of a NZ natural history magazine which makes for a lovely read on a rainy day.
