“Perfect location”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights before joining a tour around the north and south islands and so glad I did! My room opened up to a brook right in front of it with some very cute resident ducks. The room had a jacuzzi bath along with a fully fitted kitchen and a washing machine - absolutely perfect as I had been travelling for a while and was dying for some clean clothes.
The motel is located close to town - no more than 5 mins walk where there are ample shops, restaurants, cafes etc. There is also a supermarket close by where you can stock up and use the kitchen in your apartment.
The staff also went out of their way to help me - the owner even helped my jump start the car I had borrowed from my friend every morning! Its the little things like this that truly make a place excellent.
Accommodation in NZ isn't the cheapest, but Clearview is definitely worth every penny and I would definitely go back if I were in NZ again - something I'm already planning to do.

Room Tip: I would go for a ground floor room - nothing better than kicking back with a glass of wine on your p...

We had a twin room on the ground level, overlooking the lawn and brook. In the sunshine we popped out for a bottle of wine and enjoyed it sitting on our terrace. Lovely setting, well appointed room with cooking facilities and fridge etc.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms here would be fantastic

Nice motel clean and well located close to the township, however the place get very hot and there is no Aircon not even a fan so our stay on the 5th of Jan was quite uncomfortable.

Opening windows was not very helpful as all the bugs came in. Put in some Aircon or fans and it would make it more comfortable.

Firstly, thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. As mentioned in an earlier response, we agree that there have been some rather warm nights lately and regret that this made your stay uncomfortable. We do have a couple of fans available for guests to use, perhaps we should advertise this more clearly in the future. Thanks again, Hayley.

This was my favourite property during my 3 weeks in New Zealand. We had a first floor unit that overlooked the rear garden and stream. The outlook from the balcony was simply lovely with the lake and mountains in the distance, nice lawn, trnaquil little stream and even 2 resident ducks thrown in for free! The rooms are sapcious, very clean and comfortable. The washer/dryer in the room was also very handy. The owner was also very helpful, even telling us the warmest part of the lake to go to for a swim. Everything that you need is a 5 minute walk away in this peaceful little town. I was genuinely sad to only be staying for one night and will definitely return next time I visit NZ.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room which was perfect

Unfortunately we were here for one night on the hottest day of the Christmas/New Year break and it was not comfortable. The downstairs bedroom was nice and cool but the loft upstairs was baking hot all night and not helped by a mosquito invasion when we opened the windows to try and get some breeze. Still, the hosts were lovely and in cooler weather it would have been more pleasant. Maybe adding a fan to the rooms in summer might be helpful.

Room Tip: If you want windows open at night, make sure you have bug spray!

The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. The room itself was in great shape, clean and sunny. The in-room washing machine and dryer came in handy. The outside lawn was a great treat with a small stream running in the background.

Stayed only 1 night here and it's a pity as the 1 bedroom apartment is really comfortable and equipped with a kitchenette, washing machine,dryer, bath tub. The view from the living room is simply great as we could see the mountains.
