We stayed 4 nights at Salerno on our honeymoon in a queen room with spa, and found the room immaculate, large and the appliances great. The owners & staff were pleasant enough, and the location of the hotel was great for walking into the CBD (about 15 minutes) or to a nearby supermarket.

Absolutely superb, soft carpet underfoot after a long day of walking, very clean and comfortable beds, beautiful decor, shower pressure was awesome, we stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was quite big too, which was perfect for me, my husband, son and my mum. Hosts were very pleasant and eager to help. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves...

So many reasons why I love to stay here - Pauline and Brendan and their staff are the biggest reason, but also love the rooms for their open plans, amenities (like coffee & tea, nice sized fridge, table service for three, dishwashing and laundry facilities, electric blankets, spa bath, large, spacious bathroom), and the location. Windows on opposite sides of...

When we checked in, I specifically asked for a quiet room, off the main road, as the motel is on the intersection of two fairly busy roads (Bealey and Columbo). We were assured that the bedrooms faced away from the road and were quiet. While the bedroom we had did face away from the road, the back of the bedroom...

We were beyond pleasantly surprised with Salerno. To be honest we don't normally stay in motels and had initially booked the George as a sort of splurge finale for our nearly 3 weeks on the South Island. Then I saw all the Tripadvisor reviews and figured we'd be spending plenty here already. We were so pleased we didn't stay at...

We chose Salerno Motel as base camp for a two week stay on the South Island, and it was the right choice! This isn't some chain motel. The owners, Brendan and Pauline, along with their staff, treat you as if you're guests in their house and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are crispy-clean, with...

A stylish motel in a very convenient location, just a short stroll to centre of town for restaurants, shops, museum and park, but well placed for access to roads for airport and further afield. Friendly owners Brendan and Pauline are on site and offer an efficient service in a relaxed manner.
