“Good size clean apartment for a small family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

We stayed here two nights. It is away from the city centre, about 10 min drive The apt had one main and one small room. Rooms are clean with a good size and well equipped kitchen. It was very hot in the room in the afternoon, luckily it cooled down a bit in the evening. Wifi dropped off frequently. No remote for the TV and has to get up and manually change the channels on the TV!

We have booked this Motel because of the good rating here on Tripadvisor but have been disappointed strongly.
The bungalows which accomodate 2 rooms (we had room #5) are very poorly isolated, also the single glass windows dont close properly so you hear EVERYTHING from outside plus the neighbors, even if wearing earplugs! It's like the neighbors are standing next to your bed chatting and the trucks from the nearby highway run straight through your room.
We got little to no sleep.
Plus the WiFi-Signal was poor (Laptop) to non-existent (iPhone). Also we have 2 Phones and 2 Laptops each and were given 1 access code for the WiFi only. A 2nd code was given after we asked again.
Shower was bad too, it has a curtain, which can be excused for the type of accomodation, however the shower head was mounted at about 1.50m height, which means to wash your hair you would have to squat. And water pressure was weak too.
There are 2 taps in the basin, one with HOT and one with COLD water. How am I supposed to get WARM water????
Bed was comfortable and cleanliness was okay though.

Room Tip: Not sure if other rooms are better but #5 is BAD.

We stayed at Apostles View for a few nights at the end of December 2013 - we can't speak highly enough of Stephanie and the staff. Nothing was a bother; our stay was a great experience of peaceful surroundings and a host determined to make us enjoy it. The facilities were very good, and the close proximity to town gave maximum convenience while still being 'in the country'. We will definitely stay there again when we next hit the Coast :-)

First off - we almost didn't chose this motel due to the photos on Trip Advisor as it looked old and dated but as it was one of the few motels with availability for two rooms we went with the option. Definitely ignore the older photos as this place has been refurbished considerably. Much to our surprise we were greeted with a beautiful modern room! Upon arrival the owner Stef was fantastic and let us chose between two rooms. We chose room 7 which was a great size, two bedroom very clean and modern with a huge bathroom and doors that opened up to a great view and outdoor area. The unit had everything we needed from full kitchen facilities to a DVD player.
In regards to location - it is on State Highway 6 so expect some road noise (from some rooms), but this didn't bother me at all. It is about 5km from the town centre so it is a long walk to town but I quite liked being out of town and woken by the sound of cows and sheep.
Stef the host is fantastic and will help with anything you need. Overall this was a fantastic stay and I would not hesitate to recommend this place or stay again.

Lovely staff, great place to stay, everything in the apartment was clean and fresh ,with all you could wish for in it. motel close to town yet still rural . free Wifi ,although road is close it didn't bother us, surrounded by lush greenery and huge hills, woke to the gentle bleating of sheep. great value for money ,would stay here again definately .

We found it to be everything you would want from a motel.
Clean welcoming with all the facilities at hand.
The owners were most helpful in giving suggestions of places to visit that you would not have known from guide books.
Picture postcard views from our apartment and a carport if it was raining.

Stayed for a night during our 2 weeks South Island road trip. This hotel turns out to be the least expensive yet very clean and comfortable. Best value for money here. Free wifi is provided. Our room no. 6 has weak reception but I am sure you can ask for room with better reception if it is a concern for you.
My wife forgot her iPhone 5 and we realised when we already drove 3 hrs away. The owner was very kind and mailed it to our next hotel in Queenstown. We can't express enough how thankful we are.
