The rooms seem to have been recently redecorated and everything clean neat and tidy. No peeling paint, stains etc. Obviously built in the 70's due to the mixer, plugs etc but didn't have problems with water pressure etc. modern appliances, comfortable beds. Unfortunately it's right beside a very busy (main) road. With the closure of state highway one its very...

On visiting Hanmer Springs we found all the accommodation there was booked up so were referred to Culverden which was just a few minutes drive away. We were delighted to find a quiet and cosy motel called Culverden Court Motel. The owners were very helpful and the room was clean and quiet. Just what we needed after a day driving...

Clean middle standard. Everything very clean and welcoming. Though there are two tings I no longer understand being 2016 already. 1) The worst shower system in the world is the Felton Mix - it never has adequate pressure and there is no water volume control, only temperature control. It takes forever to take a shower as it does not rinse...

Peter and Sue have done a good job here in making our stay friendly, relaxed. They even covered our windscreen so the car wouldn't ice up. Hanmer springs is not a far drive and you can save some money by staying here instead. they have Sky Tv sports too which is good if you like footy like I do.

We stayed here for two nights. The hosts are helpful and friendly and the place is clean neat and tidy. It is not super flash but it has everything you need. It is straight across the road from the golf course and a short walk to the shops and cafes.

/My wife and I stayed one night whilst travelling from Timaru to the West Coast and to do some visiting on the way. Our first impression was one of a very tidy, well kept property. Lovely well groomed lawns and gardens and well maintained motels. The unit we had was comfortable and very cosy. It had every thing we needed...
