We spent a weekend, two nights, at this motel and found it very pleasant. It is very clean, has all the ingredients expected in an NZ motel. The units are Lockwood cottages split into two or three units. We were not disturbed by noise at any time and found the one bed unit roomy and comfortable. The owners, who are very new, were friendly and accommodating. It is an easy walk to the nearby shops/eating places and a reasonable walk, a few hundred meters, to the ocean beach. There is also a good pool in whch we enjoyed a leisurely swim. The complex is on a slope with adequate parking and is removed from the boring units in a two storey block that is often the motel experience.
One negative experience, the cleaner left our sliding door open all day after doing the morning clean. We could have lost an expensive camera and an expensive watch. The owner was apologetic but this is just not acceptable and checks should be in place.
