Just had a marvelous week in this motel. Spacious light and airy unit, Very handy to lake shore, a couple of minutes walk away. The units are quiet, double glazed and one road back from the lake front, so no traffic noise.
Very helpful owner, Mary.
Watch out for Biddy, she's 17, deaf and has right of way. Oh, and she's a fox terrier.

Really nice clean friendly motel, with an awesome shower. Laneway takes you through to Lake Esplanade. Great value and really quiet street. Also has free wifi which is good to have as well even though a lot of places only charge small amount, it is the little things that count.

We are pleased to be able to offer free wi fi to our guests as we know that many international travellers like to keep in touch with family and friends.Being one block back from the Lake affords us a nice ,quiet location .

Nice accommodation, modern, clean, quiet, friendly and helpful hosts - one of the best motels we had during our New Zealand holiday! Perfect stay for going to Doubtful or Milford Sound, did these bookings in the motel ... nice service!

A good place to stay as a base for visiting the Fjordland attractions.
Good sized well equipped and clean rooms, a friendly welcome and fast, free, unlimited Internet access.
It is about a ten minute walk into town along the lake.
Nothing negative to mention.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and clean. We stayed two nights and the beds were comfortable so we had a good night's sleep . The kitchen facilities were adequate and we used the outside barbie to cook one evening meal. We thought the bathroom was not well designed. For example the only mirrors were on the back of the door and not above the basin, so my husband found it a problem shaving. It was a huge room but the towel rail was on a far end wall and nowhere near the shower. We also found the bathroom wash basin difficult to wash up dishes with nowhere to place them to drain. Apart from those minor things all up a nice quiet motel in a good location.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and were allocated one on the far end. It was away from traffic noise but the guests next door were very loud through the thin walls - they settled down fairly early at night.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for bringing up the issues with the bathroom.As you indicated you did ask for a quiet room and that unit being at the end of the complex is just that .This unit is a access unit with a wet floor shower area and the basin is designed to accommodate a wheelchair.I agree with you regarding the towel rail and will rectify that .
