We had a 2 bedroom unit. The kitchen, lounge, bathroom and rooms are spacious, quiet, warm, reasonably priced motel close to everything. Comfy beds. Clean and tidy. Friendly accomodating hosts. And a spa bath in the bathroom too!

Large, clean, modern rooms with all the necessary equipment. Large than expected beds for a great nights sleep. Kids had their own twin single room - very handy. Would certainly stay again and recommend to other families.

Not quite central but not too bad location-wise, this place is generally pretty typical of New Zealand motels and motor lodges in this price range. I think the rooms are bigger than average, which is a bonus. The King 1 bdrm room with spa bath had a King in the bedroom and a second super king bed in the lounge....

Free Wi-Fi (there was a limit - I cannot remember what it was but it was plenty as I was able to watch a movie I streamed). The unit was extremely clean...

We loved this unit and well worth the little extra for the spa. Modern and clean, tastefully decorated and fitted out.

Hi. Thank you for your fabulous review of our motel. Funnily enough I had already matched the wine glasses up once I realised they were different. They sometimes walk between units and need marrying up again. Cheers Vivien

Wow - great sized rooms with a kitchenette and comfy bed. Great value for money - wish we'd had this room in other places we stayed. Super friendly managers - we had an issue connecting to wifi but the manager stuck with us till we got it sorted....thank you. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.
