Our room was very small with just a bed, a kettle and a fridge. Nowhere to hang our clothes, and a tiny shower room with toilet. We described it as being our 'prison cell'. We have been travelling around South Island, staying in motels at similar prices, and this was definitely the worst room we have stayed in. A spa pool, restaurant and bar were on site, which were very popular with the many young people staying at the motel (quite noisy at night). The location was very good, just a short walk to the shops and restaurants, and a few minutes drive to the glacier walks.
