Reviewed May 20, 2013

I have stayed here before but never reviewed it. I needed a bed for the night on a recent long drive down the South Island and booked a room with a late arrival by telephone. The owners were waiting for me when I arrived, 8.00pm, and the room if not new certainly looked it. Bathroom was clean, immaculate. The bed was clean and very comfortable and although the motel was pretty full I heard no noise. A great place to stop, I will use it again when I travel north to south.

Room Tip: I had a room at the back,, very quiet.

Wouldn't recommend this motel - the interior is very dated (the worst of the 1970's) and the beds are the most uncomfortable I have slept in for many years. Heater wasn't powerful enough to warm the lounge and bedrooms on a cold winter night. Was also very expensive at $180- per night. Wish we had been more organised and had booked ahead with one of the newer motels - there was a reason this motel had vacancies when the others didn't!

Cons: Not warm enough when you first enter. Magazines were very old. Clock wasn't running properly . Very old beds not comfortable. Decore needs updating. The free WiFi needs works.

Pros: Garden very well maintained. Small play area for kids and swimming pool for warmer seasons. Value for money.

Clean, tidy and warm. Slept well, no road noise. My biggest thank you to Lewis and Kate and their son, who drove all the way to Christchurch with my husbands passport. It will be remembered as a wonderful act of caring human beings. We recommend your motel very highly.

A fine motel, at least the newer units are better than average. Free broadband a nice plus. Room quite large & kitchen well-equipped. Very quiet. Pleasant 1-night stay after a long drive from Blenheim.

This was our first experience of a New Zealand Motel, and we were very satisfied considering the price we paid. There was plenty of room and the beds were comfortable,and clean.

We checked in, then drove down a beautiful rose-lined driveway and entered our unit. It was quite large with a nice little heater for the chilly morning. The kitchen was well equipped. And I was just 2 doors away from the laundry and the clothes line. It fitted our needs nicely.
