Stayed here with a group of 15 nearly booking out every room over the New Year period. The new owners (Kath & Trev) have done a great job in updating these motels and are still doing some work around the place to tidy it up. Rooms are spacious and clean, basic but exactly what you need. Allowed us to park...

Good stay in Glenorchy. clean and spacious room. My only complaint was that the bed was SO old and uncomfortable. I hardly slept the 3 nights we spent here. free wifi but the wifi had to be reconnected to probably every 30 mins or so.

When we arrived we were a little apprehensive as the outside does not look like much. However, the room was very nice (as was the owner!). This was a good location to stay at before doing Routeburn. I reccomend!

We stopped over for the night in Glenorchy on our way to the Dart River jet boat ride. Booked this motel in the morning, very easy and very happy with accommodation, nice and clean and good value. Owners very helpful so can't complain about any parts of our stay. This is a standard motel in a remote location, so don't...

Yes this place could do with some loving as it does look a little tired but the room was clean, big and well equipped.. We liked the price we paid for one night.. Would stay here again.. It's ideally located with a walk up to the lodge for a coffee or beer..

This is a small comfy motel run by the hospitable Corinne (and Thor who we didn't meet). It's an excellent base for exploring the top of Lake Wakatipu and the approaches to the Routeburn Track as well as Lord of the Rings locations if you are that way inclined. Very comfortable with everything you need to be self contained. We...

Two weeks after we stayed there for one night I am struggling to recall much about the interior of this motel. It was a pleasant sort of ramshackle place with a blooming climbing rose out the window and a brick cobbled courtyard and it was nice to sit on the little table-and-chairs outside the door to our room and look...

Excellent valued motel especially considering the unique location. Sure this is not luxury accomodation, just good basic good value. The motel is located handily close to the boardwalk which I walked to for sunrise. The hotel is quiet and reasonably well equipped. The owner was very friendly and when discovered I was a keen photographer gave me some handy local...

The motel's website describes this as a "no frills accommodation." This is a good value for a budget motel. Our ensuite room was clean, quiet, comfortable, secure, and you could easily make a simple meal in its small kitchen, though we dined out. There was a hob, fridge, microwave, sink, dishes, cutlery. Parking was right in front for easy unloading...
