No shampoo but two conditioners in the bathroom. No milk/milk substitute but French press coffee. Nobody in the office at the evening to ask. That lack of attention to detail had a big impact in our experience.

Hi Beth, Are you sure this review is meant for us??!! We provide extensive amenities in all of our rooms and fresh milk along with lots of useful information at check in. If for any reason the office is closed earlier than usual - you can always call us from the phone in your room (free calling nationwide!) and we...

The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were upgraded from a compact studio plus to an access room, which is on the ground floor and a bit bigger than a studio. It had a disabled bathroom - open shower (curtain), rails etc, but we had no problems with that. Hot water & pressure were good and ensuite & room...

Without the staff's help we would have missed on our visit to Milford Sound. Their knowledge of local conditions was invaluable. They even sorted out an issue with the cruise operator for us. The motel is within walking distance to all the facilities which makes for a pleasant stay. The room was clean and well appointed.

A very clean motel that is nicely located in town and allows you to walk everywhere. The front desk staff was very helpful and even allowed us to check in early. Sarah helped us to book two tours and helped us get dinner reservations at the best local restaurant. The rooms are quite spacious and ours came with a kitchenette.

A lovely clean motel to stay in. The management were excellent, and it is a nice short walk through the park to get into town. When staying in a downstairs room, we did notice a little bit of noise from upstairs.But overall, a great place to stay, and very good value for money. Also good to have virtually unlimited free...

We stayed here for two nights, as we were in the area for Milford Sound. We loved staying here, the room was immaculate, clean, tidy, modern, comfortable and a very reasonable price. We were greeted by a very friendly host, who introduced the town and explained the accommodation, and later helped us with some dinner recommendations. My partner and I...

We stayed here prior to a overnight cruise on Milford Sound. Check in was efficient, our room was clean & the location was perfect to walk along the lake or into town for dinner or breakfast. There are laundry facilities which is helpful. Price was reasonable & I recommend this Motel
