          A good New Zealand motel, well designed units with a garden outlook. Units are spotlessly clean, well-equipped with utensils, milk provided on your arrival and coffee in the plunger. Easy ten minute stroll along main street past shops and bars to the supermarket.

          What a gem - such a spacious unit with a beautiful outlook onto the garden! Very clean and had everything we needed. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants and despite being on the main road, it was very quiet.
