Highly recommend staying here. Donna the owner saved our trip, thanks so much! Arrived in NZ with no luggage as Emirates had lost it. I was hoping to do some hiking but alas my boots were in the luggage. Told my story to Donna, low and behold she presents me with a pair that had been left months earlier. Fit...

Great place to stay! As a large group the owners went out of there way to make our stay as easy as possible. The rooms were warm and had everything we needed. A lot of thought had been made to make the rooms attractive. The owners were very welcoming. Close to everything. Highly recommend!

We stayed one night and found our room comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was very handy to restaurants and cafes and close to town which is a bonus. We would highly recommend staying there. We would definitely stay there again. Bob and Cilla Jamison Christchurch

What a wonderful place to stay! Selected randomly on the net when our ferry was cancelled and couldn't have picked better! Warm welcome from Donna on arrival half hour later. Well appointed quiet warm room. Midrange cost but high quality room. Excellent continental breakfast. Donna was most helpful with meal and sightseeing suggestions. Held our room until midday after checkout...

Unfortunately had problems with wifi and road resurfacing work (noisy) but that did not detract from our experience. The staff were very helpful and pleasant throughout, helping to arrange our wine tour and bringing us chocolates and offering a free breakfast because of...

A very welcoming couple. Clean, tidy and warm motels. The owners are new to motelling and have started off well. The motels are close to the town centre and are within an easy flat walk to restaurants and shops. We had a most enjoyable stay. Thank you.

My husband and some friends stayed for two nights during a visit to the wine region. The host was so friendly and helpful during check in. It was a cold evening by the ti e we checked in and she had left the heaters on for us. The room was extremely comfortable with everything you could need including a kitchenette....

A warm and friendly welcome on a chilly night. Sometimes its the little things that count like a heater that runs quietly and a comfy chair to sit and watch TV. Modern facilities and quality toiletries. What's not to like. Have stayed before and will stay again.
