Booked this reasonably last minute and the husband and wife team were very friendly over email, even making sure we were away of road closures that may have effected our journey. Welcome was warm and our room was as expected. It's interesting reading others comments regarding the dated nature of some of the rooms as to us it just mirrored what we had seen in the other motels we'd stayed in during our time in New Zealand. On cleanliness, we had no problem with the room, although we did have to wipe down the patio furniture before we could use it as it was very dusty. Location is good, although if you want a view of the lake, this wouldn't be my recommendation. That said, being a bit further up the hill does make it lovely and peaceful. BBQ with the apartment was also a nice touch.
