Our room was fab, except for lack of shower shelf ;) and had an upstairs room for the kids, which meant we adults could watch tv and drink wine in peace. Kids even had their own TV! However, it was the pool that was the best part of our stay, Beautifully warm and clean, it felt like we were on...

We stayed in a room which had a small kitchen area which was fine. Very convenient if you are visiting the sound as the postal boat is just a short walk away so you can leave your car at the hotel. Too many smokers sitting on the balcony for us.

The motel is clean, has all the amenities you could ask for. Fantastic BBQ area with heated swimming pool and spa. Beautifully presented gardens and surrounds. Comfortable beds, sky tv, friendly staff with home cooked biscuits at reception! I highly recommend this motel as a place to stay. I wouldn't hesitate to book again. Impressive at a great price.

Clean, modern and good facilities also a great location. This was a stop along the way to Fox glacier. We had a nice room with a spa bath that was great after a long day of walking. Friendly staff and great hospitality would definitely stay again!

We stayed one night at this motel on a wet, cold & windy day. The welcome was happy & helpful, the studio unit was warm, bright with very comfy beds. Unlike many units this one had glasses, cutlery & all the items to prepare a meal. Each studio room had a small outside terrace with chairs. The bathroom was large...

We got this room on a great Grab One deal for a two night stay - we went out on the mail boat and had a night either side. The soa suite was comfortable, and nice gift of a bottle of wine as part of the deal. I have only one grumble around the video player, we thought we take...

I've stayed here before so I knew what I was in for, but it never fails to impress. I wanted to watch the recent meteor shower and the skies are pretty clear in Havelock. My spa suite was super comfortable and the heater had been switched on prior to my arrival (it was a very cold night so I appreciated...

Stayed for two nights at the end of May either side of a mailboat cruise. We had a one bedroom spa unit. The bed was very comfortable and even though the motel was on the main road there wasn't a lot of road noise. You could hear it but it wasn't too loud. The bathroom was large, clean and modern...

We stayed here in a group for the night and were offered several options of rooms. Our room was a Studio, room 'H' but had a kind bed in it whereas the others were queen.

This is a classic example of you get what you pay for. A cheap but not so cheerful hotel where the taps drip, the toilet runs after flushing & there's not even a holder for your soap in the shower. The claim is a self contained apartment, but in reality the kitchenette is so small you can't turn around &...
