A nice comfy room upstairs. Welcome card and chocolates a nice touch. Warm welcome by staff. Close to rain station but to far to walk with a bag - free Shuttle to train station in morning. Gave recommendations for places to eat within walking distance. Thanks,
Rooms are good but there is no aircon when it is very hot, all you could do was to open the windows. trying to do your laundry was rather poor, could only use between 2 and 5.30 pm. But most time it was used by management and you could not use until they had finished. Close to railway station was good and to local shop.
The Arena motel is very close to the Tranzalpine train station. But they picked us up and dropped us off which was amazing . The rooms are superbly clean with a lovely bathroom and small kitchen . The motel is located within easy walking distance of shopping and many cafe and restaurant choices . We sampled a few ! The staff are fabulous and really helpful with ideas and there is a very helpful guide in the room where they seem to have thought of everything .
We picked this Motel as it was close to the train station but unfortunately because of COVID the train was cancelled. The value to us when booked was that we were able to leave our car here while we travelled for a week. We had room 1 which had a queen and 2 single beds which were comfortable. The kitchen has a small cooktop, microwave and the seal on the fridge was broken. The decor and furniture were worn and the place needs a bit of TLC but the unit was clean. The shower works on a califont system and the pressure was pathetic. The shower in our caravan works 100% better. The light bulb was blown over the vanity. Ok for a 1 night stay.
We stayed here between journeys on the coastal pacific and tranzalpine trains. Its 10 minutes or so drive from the motel to the station and the owner was there to meet us and take us back the next morning which was great. We had an upstairs room which was very warm due to the extreme temperatures at the time, unfortunately there was no air conditioning but we did have a fan. The beds were reasonably comfortable, we had a double and single and slept well. The room was quite large and had a decent shower.
