This place was gorgeous, strategic location. It was just opposite the lake and walking distance to the town center. We stayed 2 nights. The staff was extremely courteous, helpful and friendly, making us feel at home. Coin laundry with free washing machine powder. We utilize the bbq set provided. Beautiful landscape with beautiful and colourful roses blooming and 2 rabbits...

Reasonably priced accommodation for a moderate but comfortable room. Due to a mistake by travel agent, we were fortunate enough to be able to upgrade our room to a twin room at no extra cost. We had upstairs room, but the front of unit was all windows and you needed to close curtains for privacy.

This motel is in a great location and was very clean, comfortable bed. It is a little dated but owners do appear to be renovating them. It wasn't very private with large windows opening onto the driveway - okay at night if you shut the curtains, but daytime you are a bit on view. Owners were very nice and helpful....

Thanks for your feedback. As you say, we are currently fully renovating the Units and have completed four Units to date. You should have been offered a choice of milk on your arrival for your cuppa as is the usual process, so apologies if this was overlooked. Staff always on hand to provide advice and help if required. Happy Travels

Although the upstairs unit we stayed in, for 6 adults,was somewhat dated it was tidy and clean. The fold out sofa bed was not comfortable but the other beds were. It was almost like staying in a small house. Staff were very nice. It was great having the lake across the road and it was a five minute walk to...

We have no complaints about this hotel at all. We were very grateful for the spacious rooms during our nights there. The staff was extremely helpful, storing our large bags in their back room for us while we went on the Milford Track. The rooms were clean and well stocked with cookware, and the beds very comfortable. We would definitely...

Stayed here twice over the course of a week, both times was happy have stayed here and the owners are very nice. The first night we stayed in a two bedroom older room that had not been remodeled. Very dated but comfortable just the same and clean. The price was right and we hit the trail the next morning. Upon...

Stayed in 2br. The bathroom was between the 2 rooms with a sliding door both sides. Definitely not good for sharing with friends not family. The room was in need of an upgrade, looking a very tired Unit, especially the bathroom. Laundry facility was good and a short walk to town along lakefront. Tried to arrange an extra room but...

We just stayed at this motel before and after The Milford Sound track. We found the proprietors very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They gave us a late checkout to rest our achey weary legs. The units were well equipped, very comfortable and clean.
