“A little bit of home - from home.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

This review is almost a year overdue, but finally getting the chance to get it out there. I went to NZ for the first time last year (2012) to visit my sister and her family, and my parents flew in from SA too. Obviously not enough space at their place for all of us, so my parents and I stayed at Fountain Court Motel for about 3 weeks. Our unit offered all the basics that you need for a comfy stay - kitchenette, living room, bathroom and 2 rooms.. It was very clean, spacious and well layed out allowing us space to enjoy time together, but not feel like we were constantly on top of each other. We were blessed with a waterfront unit that afforded us amazing views from the 2 bedrooms and living room. Admittedly June / July is not the best time to go to NZ (middle of winter), but then again there is a heater in the unit and there are electric blankets on all the beds, which were most welcome. John and Joyce (the owners) were very accommodating and ever so friendly - they made every effort to make our stay there as pleasant as possible. And the location is ideal as you are within walking distance (30 mins) of Fraser Cove Shopping Centre which has a fair selection of shops to cater for your needs during your stay. A definite return if ever I'm back in NZ again and in need of a place to stay.

Room Tip: Waterfront units are definitely a lot more quiet and have the best views.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

We recently had 3 nights at Fountain Court. It was a one bedroomed unit, which was clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable, and it was lovely having 2 settees in the lounge area. One evening we took a bottle of wine and sat on the decking area by the water, peaceful and attractive. There are some areas that need addressing. The power points were not conveniently placed and the kettle, which sat in a recess had to be completely lifted out complete with base unit as it was too tall for the recess, but there was nowhere else to plug it in. The whole unit was short of power points for the modern day, charging phones, iPads etc. However the price for three nights was much less than some other places we have stayed. I would stay again, the most comfortable bed in 3 weeks touring!

Haven't stayed there and not likely to. Called to make enquiries and the woman on the telephone was not willing to discuss my needs with me. What on earth is going on here? Customer service? Not here.
