Excellent great hosts. Used these units for wedding guests. Some of the guests slept in and the hosts were so understanding!!! The motels are a short walk into town. Nothing but positive comments on the comfort and cleanliness of the units. Value for money great. Many thanks.

Had a great time staying here with my immediate and extended family while we attended a family wedding. Units were clean and comfortable. Two bedroom separate unit was great as we could all spread out. (16 people) We were all made welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Motel was within walking distance of town and some good restaurants , supermarkets and shopping. As well as Information centre. Great park just across the road.

Room Tip: Two bedroom separate unit is great on space and value

Excellent service. Owners made a massive effort to fit me in as I was staying for over a week. Nice rooms with SkyTV, very clean tidy and modern. Some rooms are well off the road and others are nearer State Highway 1.

I have been traveling to NZ on business, many times per year, for the last 8 years and always make a point of staying with Ivan & Rena. They are a lovely couple, very welcoming and the rooms are always immaculate. Ivan is never to busy to share an hour or so for some evening trout fishing across the road.. Highly recommended..

Room Tip: Room 10 is my regular choice

Rena & Ivan could not have been more welcoming. I traveled to Gore as the manager of a school girls hockey team and had the whole motel booked for a week. The units are standard motel rooms but immaculately cleaned and maintained. Nothing was too much trouble and made my job much less stressful.
