The motel is basic but very clean, had a TV, sky, Blu-ray player in room. Didn't test Blu-ray but sky worked well and seemed to have most of the channels. Also included a decent ironing board and iron. Room was small but had everything we needed. The only detraction from an otherwise fine motel was the all night party from...

While this may be the 'title', due to the general appearance of the grounds, the rooms are suitably appointed, roomy & comfortable. Well worth the money and we'll located. The management & staff are very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for looking after us. We needed a camp cot and everything was in order. Changing of the towels daily was great as it would have been difficult to get them dry with the weather experienced. Rooms were clean. Beds comfortable although the pillows were a little soft and had to grab others off the other beds..(pillows are a personal...

A service station, dairy, coffee shops, post shop, hairdressers, food outlets and such a beautiful park and river for walks right on the doorstep. Our...

This was the perfect choice for us - attending a sports event at Trentham Memorial Park for the week and it had everything we needed. Surprisingly quiet which was awesome when you value your sleep for sports performance, kitchen facilities were great, handy to the gas station and fresh coffee :) Hosts were friendly and unobtrusive and staff were nice...

Really enjoyed our stay here, on a dark and stormy Wellington night. Check in was a breeze and very friendly. The unit (11) has been tastefully modernized, had everything we required and was amazingly quiet and peaceful. Great bed, pillows and shower!! A number of dining establishments in walking distance. Impressed, thank you.

While the outside of the building may not look that 'flash', the rooms are modern, very well appointed with lights and power points, etc. The rooms are large & comfortable, and the shower is hot and strong. Well situated for touring the Hutt and Kapati area. Worth a stay. I would go back.
