Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. All our units are double glazed, and we find that this helps protect our guests from external noise, and also keeps our units at a comfortable temperature both winter and summer.
We hope to have you back again when you are travelling south.

Kind regards

Thank you for your kind review. We are relatively new to Geraldine and we love the ambience of Geraldine and the community. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Each year in mid July Geraldine has a Winter Lights Festival (during the school holidays). The town is well decorated and lights up for this period - maybe you would enjoy a visit during the Winter Lights Festival 2015.

Kind regards

Lynne

This unplanned stop gave us a decent clean room with a king bed, but at $140, we found it pricier than others we stayed in that were similar. Perhaps that's what we get for walking in off the street rather than booking ahead. Location convenient to walk into town for supper.

Hi Patricia,

Patricia thank you for your comments. I am sorry that you felt that we were overpriced.
We are a 4 Star Qualmarked property, and believe that our pricing is in line with other similar 4 Star Qualmarked motels.

We do have some lower priced Studios (not Spa or the larger two bed Studios). Our policy is to offer all available Studios to our walk-in guests. I believe that these lower priced Studios were not available on the night that you stayed with us.

Patricia we hope that you enjoyed your time in New Zealand, and that one day you will return.

I stayed here with my two teenage daughters after selecting the accommodation through Trip Advisor. The hosts are a lovely couple who recently took over this motel but are not new to the motel industry and their experience shows. Everything was just as it should be, clean with comfortable beds, close to the Geraldine township, warm, free wifi, modern, and I would agree with other reviewers who commented it is immaculate. I would definitely stay here again and happily recommend to others without any hesitation. My daughter accidentally knocked the lamp over beside her bed and broke the shade. I have never come across a motel that wouldn't charge for a replacement lamp but instead we were treated with kindness and understanding by our hostess who said not to worry, she would find another lamp for the room without charging. Definitely deserves it's ranking as #1 in Geraldine. Additionally, the wifi was easy to connect to and worked perfectly throughout our stay, much to the satisfaction of my teenage daughters!

Very modern and immaculate motel within walking distance from the town centre and restaurants.
Friendly staff keep this facility top notch, and they are obviously proud of it.
Unit had king bed, sofa, dining table as well as business desk. Usual immaculate kitchen facility, and bathroom had spa bath. Quality at an affordable price, we'll be back

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room with a spa bath.

We stayed overnight. The location was convenient for walking around Geraldine. The room was clean and tidy. There was free wifi, and plenty of parking.

Good value. We couldn't have asked for much more.

The rooms are clean and modern and sound proofing is very effective. Comfy beds and a large clean bathroom.Being just a short walk into town for the evening meal was very handy as we didnt need to use the car.Visited on 6th February and I felt sorry for the owner who had serious internet problems. He couldn't even get on the system from his main computer and tried hard to be helpful but to no avail. Fortunately I had a perfect internet connection in the cafe just a few steps away. I felt that air con would have made our stay a perfect one as it was a very hot day when we arrived but I imagine that for most of the year the rooms will be fine
