Having stayed here some years ago, we decided to stay again as we wanted somewhere central as it was only for one night. The cost was great, thank goodness, as the place is, as it was those years ago. Our room was dark, because of the open plan dark wooden roof and walls. No thanks also to the several non working light bulbs or completely missing ones. The electric blanket did not work either. There is a real need for an upgrade. Location is really excellent.

We had vehicle problems & found this Motel by chance, (I didn't even know this motel was there), it was warm clean & a comfy bed!
The lady in the office was lovely and very helpful, she could tell we where tired & needed a good night sleep.
The motel is very centrally located in town & quiet rooms.

I would recommend.

This accommodation was excellent value. We had an upstairs room with a balcony and a view of the lake. It was convenient to everything which was in walking distance. The facilities in the room were terrific. The owners were very friendly and co-operative. Great value for money.

Room Tip: My husband loved the fact that Subway was just around the corner. The upstairs rooms provide a balc...

We stayed one night at Aspiring Lodge.
We found the welcome very warm and nothing was to much trouble.
We asked where were good places for dinner and breakfast and were advised of a couple.
We took the recommendations and were very please that we did.
The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, the heater did its job well, but the bathroom is quite dated which lets the room down. Credit to the owners, it was very clean.

The owners were very friendly and accommodating. They provided us with directions to a nearby laundromat, and allowed us to park in their parking lot an hour or so before check-in time and again after checkout, so we could walk over to the waterfront to have breakfast. The location was also fantastic, with a view of the lake from our room.

I like accomodations which are tastefully furnished, cosy, clean, accomodations which do have character and are not sterile and dead and I like accomodations which are professionally managed. all this is true for aspiring lodge. you arrive and everything is as it was waiting just for you. after a good rest in those heavenly comfortable beds you can get ready for the day sitting on a bar stool and sipping a great coffee made in the little, but functional kitchen. at the end of the day you may choose to relax on the modern and spacious sofa while reading a book or just watching tv.
if I had a question they were helpfully answered by the very friendly owners who do everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. in my eyes this lodge was one of the best I had during my extensive travels through new zealand. I can highly recommend this place!
