Service wise, this motel is the best place that I've stayed in any parts of the world. Nothing seem to be too much trouble for the friendly folks running the clean and comfortable place. Cheerful Sylvia gave useful tips and advice, and very helpfully located a clinic for us and checked taxi fares to the airport.
Owners Mary and Terry were outstanding. When they learn that I had to return the rental car at the airport late at night, they offered to pick me up from the airport. What's more they did this without being asked. On top of that, early the next morning Terry drove us to the rail station. I'm speechless with gratitude for their amazing kindness!
Not only was the room very clean, everything else inside was spick and span too. We spotted Japanese speaking cleaning ladies, maybe that partly explains the high cleanliness standard. Unlike some places (including even 5 stars hotels), we did not have to ask for anything during our stay. Cups, towels, toiletries, everything was catered exactly for the number of people staying. We had the most comfortable stay at this wonderful place during our NZ trip and would highly recommend this place again.
