“Excellent stop over”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Travelling from Auckland to Masterton, we stopped for one of our party to bungee jump

Although only overnight, 2 bedroom apartment was excellent

Not far from lake and town facilities, small market across road for the necessities

Would recommend, wish we could have stayed longer

Room Tip: This 2 bedroom apartment had a double, 2 singles and a sofa bed in lounge area. We were on front of...

We stayed here as a midpoint stop up the island. Nicely renovated 2 bedroom unit. A TV in both rooms was a great convenience with the kids. Unfortunately we found the beds uncomfortable, and one ply toilet paper has no place in a motel of this standard.

Well located Motel, far enough away from the busy part of town but close enough to take advantage of the restaurants etc around the lake. well maintained and well managed. Units are very comfortable with small kitchenette. Beds in the rooms are nice and comfortable. Would recommend this Inn.

Very friendly host that could just make your day. The host is also knowledgeable and very helpful in suggesting places of interest, activities and also places to find good food. The room is clean, spacious, spa in bathroom and commendable kitchen facility. Wouldn't think twice to come back in my next trip.

The new owners are doing an impressive job here. We had a second floor unit. The kitchen was fully equipped. There were lots of electrical outlets throughout. The room was large.

It is located centrally on a busy street, so it is easy to get around from here.

Note that you only get 100 mbs free on WiFi.

Lovely room with spa bathroom, very comfortable and beautifully clean. We have stayed here before and would have no hesitation in recommending this motel to others. New owners were very welcoming and helpful.

We had booked at this motor inn for 2 nights but decided to stay an extra night because we enjoyed it so much. Large clean room. Excellent kitchen & bathroom with spa bath. We were in room 9. Hosts were very welcoming & obliging. Laundry room is available. Would defiantly recommend.
