Clean, bright room with views over the lake and a balcony. We arrived about 11 pm - the owners arranged for the key to be left for us and left a welcoming light on inside the unit. Would be very happy to stay here again on our next trip through.

Had everything you could wish for in a motel in NZ. The spa bath was a nice touch. Everything looked brand new, clearly recently been refurbished. Very clean, comfy bed. Note saying not to use the spa after 10pm

Lovely rooms, great view and friendly staff. This place is right on the lake and walking distance to all the cafes and shops. Head down to the lake a bit to the left of the hotel at low tide and dig in the sand at the edge and you will find hot water spring up. Made for a nice foot...

Really nice view, 3 minutes walk to the city center, cafes, bars and shops. The room was nice and tidy with all amenities you need. Bathroom was clean but shower cabin was a bit small what wasn't really comfortable

Great stay, great view. We had a 2nd level Lakeview room. Great size for two people and perfect for watching the world go buy, A little but noisy with traffic but once windows and doors closed, you didn't notice

Stayed two nights and found everything great from greeting to are well. Had Unit 4 right at the front. Great view of the lake but of course this property is on a very busy road so with that comes the traffic noise despite the double glazing on the Windows. Wonderfully clean unit and would stay again but would ask for...
