My wife and I spent four nights during the week of our wedding anniversary. We cannot speak highly enough of Ken and Karen's warm and friendly welcome and helpful attitude throughout our stay. There was even a card and flowers awaiting us on our return to the room on our Anniversary.The accommodation was well furnished and equipped and spotlessly maintained with rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. A bumper sized information book in the room gives a mine of useful orientation and tips, including menus of the main restaurants and local takeaways.
There are a large number of motels vying for your business along Thames Street, the main through-highway which throbs to the roar and clatter of heavy goods vehicles with trailers going to and from Port Chalmers container port, especially during the night when they can drive through unimpeded by other traffic. The huge advantage the Midway has over almost all others is that it lies well back from the road, and additionally double glazed windows guarantee you a totally silent and peaceful night.
A tip - a visit to the penguins is a must, and take Denis's tour. He was instrumental in setting up the Blue Penguin colony, was the original site manager and is a mine of information, related in an easy going modest and humorous way. It is well worth the moderate cost and you get a short tour of the mai9n sights thrown in. Ken will arrange it for you.
