I didn't expect much from a motel, but this one was great: Very friendly staff, spotlessly clean, nice kitchenette (fully equipped and lots of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and milk), pillow menu. The bed was a bit hard and I could feel springs, and the TV was in a corner that was good to view from the bed, but not...

Last minute booking so didn't have a lot of options for a weekend stay. The room was comfortable but I would have to say not very big.The worst thing about it was the bathroom, very small no vanity as such, so no storage and a shower curtain over the bath. Very friendly staff, in fact the owner came out to...

Brilliant stay here. Was running very late so rang reception around 7pm when I was coming through Tekapo. Helpful person on the phone told me where to find my keys, and gave me his phone number in case there was any problems. On arrival I found a note with instructions to find my room. Located upstairs at the back of...

we randomly picked this placed while driving along. It is located on a main road & we were concerned the traffic noise would keep us awake as we were close to the road, but we didn't notice it. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful, going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It is...

Friendly people. Even offered to carry in our luggage. We were given a room towards the back which meant practically no traffic noise. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. We only had a studio unit, but it suited our needs. Was warm and the bed was really comfortable. A later check out time of 11am was a bonus. No...

This motel is clean and modern with features more akin to a larger hotel. My room was quiet and nicely equiped with everyting you need.

We stayed for three nights with our two young children. When we arrived we were delighted with our room. It was so clean and had everything we needed. A great spa bath, great layout.

Friendly staff and clean. But not at all as described by the hotel or in some of the reviews - very small for a "suite" (no where to put suitcases or even toiletries); road noise is unbearable and goes on all night (windows and curtains do not keep out noise; hot if you stay when weather is warm as opening...
