Staff at booking time and on arrival were friendly. Room was relatively basic. Thin walls between units with the child next door being audible. Bathrooms and kitchenette somewhat dated. Free wifi. Recommend the restaurant across the road.

Hi there, Thank you for your comments, we do hope you enjoyed your stay. I was a little surprized to hear of a baby next door, as it is rare that we are prepared to accommodate any children in the upstairs units. In future please do tell us of any disturbance, or incident that may need attention, so that we... More

Extremely helpful response from Management with my initial inquiry, who were very obliging in assisting with my booking which included elderly family members that required a unit without stairs. Upon arrival we were greeted by the Managers who provided some brochures, map and a brief overview of the points of interest which was very helpful. They showed us to our... More

Upon walking in to book a room for 2 nights, I was greeted by Martin who was absolutely lovely throughout my stay.

After a rough hotel stay in Queenstown, we were impressed by Martin's flexibility and helpfulness. My husband is a light sleeper, so Martin let us peruse a few rooms to ensure we had one that was nice and quiet. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. Spa was a decent size and there were free DVDs to access at night.... More

Friendly and very helpful owners. Great place but only 2 minor issues - one was a loss of hot water during what must have been peak spa bath time in the whole place.

Hi there, Thanks for your review, and it was a pity that you were so laid up with the manflu. In regards to the hot water question, our hot water is heated using thermal water through a heat exchanger, and you are correct, that, on the odd occasion, when we may have seven 'hot tubs' being filled in the same...

Thanks Alexander for your comment, however your query to us, like this 'misleading advertising' has tones of conspiracy theory.

Nice motel, large if basic room, decor a little dated but not a problem for a one night stay. Before leaving in the morning we turned on the spa bath.
