“Great Value”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Have just stayed 3 nights over the busy Xmas period and was impressed. Ther 2 bedroom units are well decked out with everything you need in the kitchen and have plenty of extra room. Beds were really comfortable and the units clean although a little dated. The covered hot tub in the unit was awesome although allow about an hour for it to fill. Karen & Terry are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. All in all a very pleasant stay

Although the decor is a little dated, we couldn't fault this motel. The owners, Karen and Terry, we're really friendly and ever so helpful. Their advice was always right on. The free shuttle was a great bonus if you didn't want to drive. Karen even did our washing for us, for no charge. Terry's recommendation of the the right fishing charter was great. My husband and son came back with 8 large trout. The guy even smoked and vacuum sealed each one. The best thing was we were able to then freeze it and bring it all back to Australia. Customs were absolutely fine with this.

Grandson and I had decided to stay the night, called into the I site (information centre) and they suggested this motel which I am glad they did as it was great.

On checking in asked about laundry and the lady said no problems just bring it in and we will do it for you (NO CHARGE). Unit was spacious, clean with bonus of a spa in a small courtyard, breakfast was plentiful, large walk in shower with plenty hot water would stay again if in NZ.

Wonderful hosts Karen & Terry made my stay a wonderful experience. They were ever helpful with advice. I appreciated the cooked breakfast in the mornings which saved time going out to look for breakfast before setting out on my hiking trips. My room was clean and really there was nothing that I could fault.
I certainly would not mind staying at this motel should I make another visit to NZ.

We were only staying for one night but we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The unit was very comfortable and spacious. The spa and breakfast were an added bonus. Very quiet and handy to everything. Great value for money!!

This motel is run by a really great couple that looks to make sure you have the best stay possible. The room was very clean and quite large and there was a spa in the back. The owners have a shuttle bus that they use to take you pretty much any where you want to go. They even took me into the city just to pick up a meal and drove me back. While I did not end up having time to go to some of the farther spots, the motel owners said they could have coordinated the ride for me. They worked to make sure transportation was never an issue and always had lots of great recommendations for what I could do. I cannot recommend this place enough.
