This was an absolutely marvellous find, great views and such fantastic value. It is not well advertised and thus not easy to find, but well worth it when you do. It is not a conventional motel, there are no staff on site, it is described as "serviced accommodation". However, practically speaking it doesn't make a lot of difference. Help is just on the end of a telephone line, and the rooms are serviced daily and since at most motels in New Zealand the staff all pack up and go home at 7pm there is very little difference. There is a choice of 3 apartments from 1 bedroom to 3 bedroom. The smallest (1 bedroom) was just $90 and by far the best value we found on our holiday. It was a nice room with a very small kitchenette and a good sized bathroom, but with a fantastic balcony with a glorious view. We would thoroughly recommend it. The only downside is a lack of eating places nearby. The nearest at Niagara Falls (an intentional joke - nothing like the original Niagara falls) was rather expensive, but anything else is a fair drive away (although not more than 30 minutes).
