Where possible, the hosts were very accomodating, & noted special requests & assited with familiarisation in the local area. The rooms were reasonably priced, had reverse cycle air conditioning, good kitchenette, crisp linen & nice towels & solid walls between the units. Would...

We stayed twice after we fled Wellington after the November earthquake, tired and very stressed we were warmly welcomed on both occasions at short notice by hosts Pat & Dave, to this excellently appointed, spotlessly clean motel and were able to have much needed rest and reprieve. Definite 5 stars!

We spent the night and experienced the earthquake at the hotel. The owners were so hospitable and helpful and I am forever grateful. They are perfect hosts and full of tips on the area plus the rooms are spotless with all the little extras. They have thought of everything. I am a condo owner and know how hard it is...

This quaint little hotel offered a welcome change from the typical hotel chain that I stay in nearly every week. They proprietors welcomed us personally, gave us dinner recommendations, and even proffered some local farmers' milk to use in my morning coffee. The rooms are well-appointed, and clean. You will have everything you need for your stay, including a kitchenette...

Top notch decor, very modern and lovely motel room. The bath had a jacuzzi tub so it was a nice way to end the evening. We had a two bedroom unit and it was very spacious.
