Our room was very clean with all the equipment etc required in the kitchen area. It was conveniently located a short distance from shops, restaurants and the beach. There was an outside area with table and chairs. We slept extremely well but we're disappointed that wifi was not included in the price of the room as it was in most...

This place is very clean. Amazing location. Free wifi! We got the room with the microwave and mini fridge, score! A little on the pricey side but there's not much you can do about that. Books up quick so plan ahead! Felt safe and clean here, definitely recommend this place!

This motel is clean and tidy, spick and span. Proprietors Dianne and Robin have got a good business here; all details are covered: they've thought of just about every detail. Comfy beds, beautiful linen, Sky TV., and very clean.

Paid $10 for Wi-Fi (used $2 worth) through outside company,but could not use it again on the rest of our trip in NZ, Suggest for the higher cost of this motel,...

We had a two bed unit for my family of four. Very comfortable beds, clean and well maintained throughout the unit. Site is also of a simmilar standard and well maintained. Will stay again on our next visit up here without hesitation. Only negative which is minor is that the rooms we had only had a view of the courtyard.

This Motel is a little more expensive than most others we stayed at during our holiday in NZ and there is also a little extra to this place. We felt very welcomed already when checking in and have nothing to complain about from the rest of the stay. Comment: From hotels.com and Tripadvisor I was informed there should be free...

Turned up with no reservation, fantastically helpful - as spa wasn't working allowed us to use a room with private spa. Great value for money and super restaurants in walking distance. Well equipped room.

Great place from which to tour this beautiful area. We had a 1 bedroom apartment - separate lounge with kitchen and dining area. Also large spa bath. Immaculate throughout! Close to beach with sea views from some rooms. Good amenities close by. Highly recommended!
