Reviewed 15 October 2013

What a lovely place! Nice and quiet, with the most charming hosts. A lovely outlook over Waikawa Bay. The rooms have just been upgraded, and are very homely.Throughly recommended. Took out one of their kayaks for a paddle in the bay, very relaxing !

Room Tip: The room on the beachside is the best

They've left the vinyl and carpet from the 1960's in the room. Couldn't sleep well from the stench coming from the rotting carpet.

Room looked freshly painted and comes with kitchenette and TV.

Owner very friendly and accommodating.

Nearby 5 star hotels have similar rates, check around first.

Inspection beforehand is a must.

Thank you for taking the time to write. We are disappointed to learn of your comments;
We checked the unit carefully after your comments but could find no fault or odor and the carpet is in fair condition.

if you had taken the time and spoken to our management or any of the staff, we are sure that they would have corrected the situation to ensure you enjoyed your stay in New Zealand.
Please book direct with us to get the best rate. Nearby Hotels on average charge at least 40% more than we charge.

I have been coming to this Motel for many years and it keeps getting better. The Motel has been upgraded and has a new large flatscreen T.V.
The owners are very friendly and helpful and the Motel has all the comforts and chattels a traveler would need. A peaceful and beautiful part of New Zealand.

Room Tip: Choose an off street Motel. This Motel, all the units have peaceful bedrooms.

This was a difficult review to write. On the one hand the unit was relatively well equiped (Sky TV, kitchen, shower, etc.) and the cleanliness was faultless. On the other hand, this had the feel of something stuck in the seventies. If you want modern comforts, don't come here, but if you want to go back to your childhood era, then this is the place for you.

Everything worked, the paint finish was perfect, the carpet pattern was awful but it was spotlessly clean. The location is quiet and the views are beautiful from the cove which is only 30m away. The owners were very friendly. The biggest problem for me was the price - $160 for 3 adults was too steep for a unit that is in dire need of a facelift. The next day I was in a modern spacious motel in Christchurch paying only $135.
