We stopped here after a long drive from Te Anau. We got a friendly welcome at reception and were given a clean, bright, and comfortable room for the night. Our one negative comment is that the fan in the bathroom is completely inadequate. One steps out of the shower into a room completely foggy and steamed up. In fact, this is a common complaint in many motels I think.
Except for a hotel/pub, this is the only motel in town I think, and the owners do a great job of hosting travellers. I would point out that it is a small town and things seem to shut down early, so getting groceries or a meal or petrol out of normal working hours might be problematic.
