We stayed for 2 nights in a fully self-contained unit, 1 bedroom with closet space, bathroom had 3 separate spaces, 1 with a sink/mirror, 1 toilet and a third room with a shower, very handy! The kitchen was small but we were still able to cook a proper dinner. The living room space had 2 extra beds, a sofa and a dining table with 4 chairs, it was small but not cramped and we felt very comfortable! All windows opened which was fortunate as it was very hot and humid while we visited. We had a large fan next to the bed, which is good because of course no aircon (I think we haven't seen aircon anywhere in NZ!!!).
Hosts Willem and his wife were very friendly and were happy to share tips about the region. We were able to use the laundry and dryer. We walked across the road to the main building and used the outdoor pool and the indoor spa.
The grounds are beautiful and very well kept, as are the motel units. Decor is a bit dated but everything is extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable!
The motel is a short dive away from the town, which has a McDonalds, lots of coffee- and lunch places, few restaurants, souvenir shops, banks, a pharmacy and a large Countdown supermarket. Just a minute's walk up the road from the motel is a small convenience store.
