Free parking right outside your unit, good value, nice rooms with kitchenette, washing machine and dryer available at the end of the units. hair dryer incl and comfy beds. Free wifi in rooms. Just a...

Lovely Motel and the new owners were great. We were there when a huge fire closed the road from Queenstown and cut the Power for more than 24hours. The owners coundn't have been more helpful. Lovely place to stay

Stayed at this establishment for 5 nights. It has a great location and loads of potential but the owners have no real interest in customer service. Previous guest's garbage still in the room when we arrived and garbage was not collected the entire time we were there. There wasn't any maid service the entire time we had the rooms. Had...

This is a tiny Motel, not to be confused with the Glenorchy HOTEL nor the Glenorchy LODGE. The lodge can have a lot of bar noise with smokers outside the rooms (according to one of our party who stayed there). This Motel has 7 or 8 rooms. Ours had a kitchen area and room for a dining table so you...

The rooms were super and spacious, bed sooo comfy, kitchenette had everything we needed and shower fab. Wifi was fast too,...

Stayed here with a group of 15 nearly booking out every room over the New Year period. The new owners (Kath & Trev) have done a great job in updating these motels and are still doing some work around the place to tidy it up. Rooms are spacious and clean, basic but exactly what you need. Allowed us to park...

Good stay in Glenorchy. clean and spacious room. My only complaint was that the bed was SO old and uncomfortable. I hardly slept the 3 nights we spent here. free wifi but the wifi had to be reconnected to probably every 30 mins or so.

When we arrived we were a little apprehensive as the outside does not look like much. However, the room was very nice (as was the owner!). This was a good location to stay at before doing Routeburn. I reccomend!

We stopped over for the night in Glenorchy on our way to the Dart River jet boat ride. Booked this motel in the morning, very easy and very happy with accommodation, nice and clean and good value. Owners very helpful so can't complain about any parts of our stay. This is a standard motel in a remote location, so don't...

Yes this place could do with some loving as it does look a little tired but the room was clean, big and well equipped.. We liked the price we paid for one night.. Would stay here again.. It's ideally located with a walk up to the lodge for a coffee or beer..

“Rooms with bigger numbers are better. #1 is right by the "highway" (Highway in the Glenorchy sense isn't an issue).”

“Get a room with a window that views the mountain peaks. The 4 or 5 closest to the street do. But I'm sure the others are equally nice you just have to walk outside to enjoy the view.”
