Since our last visit over two years ago this motel has been upgraded.. The room was sparkling clean, the red and white bed linen immaculate, the studio room quiet and comfortable.. The service was outstanding and consistent. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed, the proprietor had our booking immediately to hand, offered us discount meals with a couple of restaurants and then, came out with us not only to show us our room but to carry our luggage. And this was in new Zealand. It was just great. We had a pleasant grassy outdoor area for sitting, sunning, reading or chatting to other guests. It was on the main street and a short walk to numerous cages and the Barbour. The fine service continued next morning. We saw staff arrive in uniform shirts and long shorts who assisted guests with luggage as they left. A great atmosphere and excellent service.
