My wife and I stayed at some pretty fantastic B&B's while in New Zealand. I don't want to say this motel was bad because it wasn't. It was clean and comfortable with a private bathroom which is all you really need. It's also walking distance to the main strip of town. It was just a little smaller than some of the other places we stayed at and lacking a bit of character. Plus for what you get, it was a little expensive. But you could do a lot worse so it's not a bad choice. Maybe take a look around first at some other options before settling here. If you're just here for a night to check out the glacier and the hot pools, then it's a decent place to stay. Nothing extraordinary though.
