Please note change of ownership 1 month ago may have changed these appartments. Now run by a Chinese couple with poor English skills. They were unable to help us with local information past the basics which we can get from a guidebook. There were also problems with our booking, and they handled this by speaking loudly In Chinese to each...

Had an excellent 2 nights in a two bedroom unit, though it had little natural light. It was quiet but close to the central areas. Good furnishings and large shared table and chairs on balcony. WiFi was an issue for some of the party, also weak shower over the bath.

Motel is located in a walkable distance from the town centre, half an hour by car from the airport. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff OK. Parking on the yard. No restaurants nearby. Higher price than value, but OK place to stay.

Location is fairly central - was happy to walk here from the central bus interchange. The no vacancy sign was out (NB. we had booked) so I was pleasantly surprised to be offered upstairs or downstairs. Guess that means most the rooms are the same layout. Seemed that most Sky TV channels were available - great. Bathroom OK, facecloth provided...

The motel sits beside a main road with barely a 5 minutes drive to city central. The receptionist is helpful and directed some recommended places for our consideration. Our 2 bedroom apartment is on the second level that is tucked away at the center. It is less visually appealing compared to full length glass doors and windows of the majority...

Was delighted with every aspect of this motel - great value, nice clean and comfortable rooms with elegant decor. The receptionist was very helpful and kept an eye on the family while I was being collected from the airport. Central but quiet - good parking. What's not to like?

Stayed here for two midweek nights in school holidays. Despite being on a main road the unit was very quiet. The unit is small but comfortable for two people. Bathroom good. Kitchen small but fine for putting breakfast together - you wouldn't cook a full meal - but there are plenty of eating places nearby. Managers were very helpful with...

Stayed here for one night at the end of our drive from Queenstown. Booked on booking.com at a really reasonable price.

We spent several nights here - at the beginning of our trip to the south island and we returned at the end. Rooms have plenty of space and come with a very nice kitchenette complete with refrigerator, microwave and plenty of dishes and glasses. Our reception was friendly and, as we were early, he recommended a good cafe just around...
