I recently stayed here for a week while on business vut have also stayed here several times before. The unit I usually get is large, comfortable and quiet. It is always immaculately clean when I arrive and is fully cleaned every day. Management are polite and helpful but do not pry. There is literally nothing about the property that I would criticise. Particularly good features are the wonderful shower and the heat pump. If I were to create a wish list I would like to have more Sky TV channels (currently Sport 1, Sport 2, Movies 1, Box and Living) and some cushions on the leather sofas but it is hard to think of anything else. That is because everything else is there and of good quality.

I heartily recommend this property.

Room tip: The best units are the two one bedroom units at the back - 6 and 15.

We stayed and this lovely quiet motel whilst travelling around the South Island over Christmas 2012/2013. The owners were extremely friendly and went out of their way to meet our needs. The rooms are very spacious, very clean (serviced by cleaners daily), and quiet. The interior is very up to date. Close to city centre. Would recommend and stay again.

Warmly welcomed and surprised at the size of the room, with a kitchenette area, an outdoor sitting area and a bathroom (which I think was supposed to be for the disabled) we were very comfortable here. Quiet area but just a short drive to the centre of town. The only thing lacking is a view. Would recommend.

Really enjoyed our three night stay at the motel. Well equipped rooms eg good sized fridge, microwave, oven top, dishwasher etc. Clean and up to date interiors, well serviced daily and friendly staff. Would recommend to family travellers who enjoy comfort, peace and attention to detail.

We stayed here after completing the rail trail and therefore booked because the room had a spa pool.

The room was huge! With a big bed, nice furnishings and decor. Plus a large balcony.
Balcony sliding door was quite heavy to push open, may need a bit of attention.

Spa bath worked great. Only issue i could see was when you sit in the bath, you can see the build up under the toilet rim. There was also a panel coming away on the edge of the spa bath. Also be careful when in the shower as on full pressure it sprays out the door and floods the floor, this also makes it tricky to get in.

All in all, lovely place , great value for money!
