Very clean room. Good size and offered cooking facilities. Not on main road so quiet. Close enough to main street of town. Helpful owner. Heater on thermostat in main room, no heater in bedroom but electric blankets. Not many TV channels to chose from if you love your TV. Would stay again

Cosy room. Staff made a special effort to ensure room was nice and warm for us as it was a chilly night. We didn't book ahead but they staff were quickly able to assemble a rollaway bed to accommodate all our family. Very comfy beds

We (2 adults, 12 and 10 yr old) stayed in a two bedroom unit for two nights that was massive and warm. The location is central, owners friendly and it's very modern. Wi-Fi signal was a bit weak but everything else was excellent including the laundry. Def. recommend staying here.

Very clean, spacious, comfortable and with a great shower (we'd come straight from finishing walking the Routeburn Track so the wet-room shower was particularly welcome). The owners were very obliging and their advice on where to eat in the town proved to be spot on.

A three generation road trip was well catered for at this location. Very friendly and helpful staff on arrival. Great location with lots of walks to explore, tours available, shops close by and a very clean, spacious motel with large bathroom to relax at the end of the say. Clean, fresh and quiet.

Great location, and although it is not on the lake it is only about a 2 minute walk to the lakeshore, and a 10 minute walk to the downtown area. The motel is clean and quiet. Good basic accommodation, and excellent value for what we paid.
