This is a quiet motel complex 100 metres off the main highway and only 200 metres to the town centre, run as a family enterprise by a friendly and helpful couple.
Rooms have comfortable beds, adequate self-catering facilities, heated floors, 32" LCD flat screen TV's with Freeview but only limited Sky and Free Wireless. However, the rooms are very old-fashioned and ‘dated’, roughly in the 1950’s character. I even experienced my first stainless steel shower compartment!
A useful overnight stopover between Christchurch & Mt Cook (only 25 minute drive to Lake Tekapo) but wouldn’t want to stay longer.
