Lovely, clean quiet place to stay for 1 night en route to Christchurch. Very helpful owners, excellent accommodation, would definitely stay there again and recommend as a place to stopover. Excellent value for money

Clean and spacious this motel is tucked away from the road so look for the sign. We went toMurchison because it was on the detour due to the road closure due to the earthquake. The motel room was very comfortable and offered adequate room. It was quiet and offered a small kitchenette, a dining table and chairs plus a sky...

The rooms are clean and comfortable and bigger than expected. This hotel is tucked away so it is easy to miss, but I am glad that we stayed here. It is next to the Rivers Cafe which has a nice breakfast.

we had only the towels replaced with the dirty tea towel left on the bench. rubbish was not removed & kitchen floor not cleaned. Bathroom floor not cleaned with shower floor not even wiped. Hand basin not cleaned. Beds not made. For a 4 star motel the service was very poor and the price increased on website since kaikoura earthuake

Biggest bed we have ever struck in a motel!!!! Excellent room on end of block, basic pool area on offer, round corner from all shops, clean room and all you need. Best place to stay in town - our opinion :)

We chose to stay here as we were passing through because I checked TripAdvisor for recommendations and they didn't disappoint. The room was large - which was a bonus. We had our golden retriever with us and they happily accepted her staying in the room with us too - she had her own bed and doesn't get up on furniture...

We only stayed one night in a two bedroom room. There was a BBQ next to our motel room which came in handy. The bathroom had a spa bath and really large shower plus plenty of amenities. The only problem was that there was only three dinner plates.

My husband and I spent one night here in late November, and were upgraded to a 4 person room. Unfortunately it was raining heavily when we arrived, but we quickly dried out. The room was clean and I loved the good range of toiletries provided. We also made use of the laundry and had no problems with the Wifi.

Found this excellent well run motel after white water rafting. Lovely gardens and peaceful surroundings. Clean and modern units. Friendly and helpful staff. Would certainly stay here again if in the area.
