“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2011

We only spent one night here but could not fault the welcome and friendly service of the staff. Our room was clean and comfortable, we liked the idea of a communal, self serve breakfast (the food was great too!).
We did the glow worm walk and were rewarded by hundreds of glow worms putting on a show, we were also told of the best place to see the fantastic sunset and were able to take amazing photographs. Highly recommended

I had two very nice nights here in winter. The kitchen was a little small but this was not a problem because it was the quiet season. Bathrooms very nice and clean, although a little chilly as they open straight out to the outside. Very helpful friendly staff. It has a charm about it that the larger motor parks do not.

Beautiful room, great arrangement for breakfast downstairs.
Visited the nearby forest to see the glow-worms (you can borrow a torch/flashlight from reception)

Stayed here with my parents for one night and we all loved it.
Very cosy in lovely wooden lodge, with a generous breakfast provided with home baked bread -Lovely and warm - and really inviting.
Had a great nights sleep in comfy bed, and we were lucky to have the whole place to ourselves.
Helpful reception booked us onto Glacier Explorer Trip which was also fantastic.
Would recommend this lodge - and especially for larger groups travelling together, it would be ideal.

We stayed here two nights and the owners and staff were all very helpful and friendly - we felt very well looked after. The room itself was comfortable and had a spa bath but we found the wet-room style shower a little inconvenient. However, this was more than compensated by all the other features. In particular the continental breakfast was 'self-service' in a traditional kitchen with unlimited toast, daily fresh home-baked bread, and tea/coffee at all hours, as well as a stove in the corner which took care of the autumn chill in the early morning air..

This was a great little motel with spaces for campervans outside. It was a great deal compared to the other one in the town and much closer to the town and facilities. THEy dont advertise so we found it on arrival and the staff were excellent, pointing out where to go and find things and suggested activities for us. THe bathrooms were great, functional and private. The Kitchen was on the small side but had everything that you would need. We also had a small view to the surrounding mountains. Cant comment on the motel itself but it looked lovely from the outside.
