What an absolute gem of a find! Hosts Gill & Steve couldn't be more helpful and friendly, Nigel was in his element being a fellow pilot he had heaps to talk about! The rooms are spacious with a very comfortable queen sized bed, very well equipped kitchen, jacuzzi bath and great shower. Exceptionally clean and tidy. We were given beach...

Excellent motel and location, very clean and tidy, excellent service and help from Jill. A very easy walk to town, shops, and cafes, would definitely stay at this motel again. Nice beach across the road and coffee cart.

This motel is in a great location. It has fabulous views of the Lake from the balcony. There is an adequate kitchenette. It is very clean with a very comfortable bed. The proprietors are excellent. They were very helpful and willing to go beyond normal kindness.

We stayed in room 9 of the Executive Motel, which was supposed to be a "superior room". The price was similar, or more expensive to other motels that we booked on our last 2 x trips to NZ, even after a special discount we received, but it looked the cheapest. It certainly wasn't what I would call an executive room,...

As you would see from my reviews, I tend to leave very positive responses. I see trip advisor as a place to be very honest, and not have a whine. Having been in retail myself, I know that the people who get service often say nothing and its only those who get bad service who 'have a go'. We only...

We are a group of 3 girls on a road trip and stayed for one night. The room was first class as it was well equipped with a jacuzzi bath, heater and most importantly comfortable beds. We loved the extra soft touches like the cookies at the bar and the welcome chocolates. It certainly goes a long in differentiating this...
