The motel itself was clean and spacious, check in was relatively casual and easy. Unfortunately there was only one restaurant opened during our stay, and the town was empty with not much to do. Lake Tekapo isnt too far away, i recommend staying there instead.

The office only opens from 8-10am and 2-4pm. I called and left a message, emailed but no reply or return call. It's very inconvenient that the staff are not contactable out of these hrs. The lady at reception was very keen to get on with her job and didn't seem very friendly. Kitchen needs updating. The hair dryer, one electric...

Great little motel in a small country town. Clean, comfortable, easy parking right next to the room. If you don't want to drive from Mount Cook all the way to Christchurch, this is a fantastic place to stop.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit for one night. It was spotlessly clean and really spacious. The small kitchen was well equipped for a short stay. Beds were really comfortable. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. A great place to stay.

The unit we had (unit 6) was a good size with a separate bedroom. The unit was likely built sometime ago, but was well maintained and had all we required for a short break. When the room was built people had nowhere near the number of electrical toys that are available today - it was a challenge to find power...

Being a family of 5, we struggle to find accommodation that is willing and able to accommodate us in one unit, to find this little gem was fantastic. Great spacious 2 bedroom unit with a queen in one room and two singles PLUS a roller bed in the second room comfortably, electric blankets on all beds. We walked into a...

Lovely clean room which was nice and warm as the heating had been put on advance of our arrival. Don't let the dated exterior of the units put you off as the inside is comfortable and spaciousness. A real pleasure to stay somewhere where the management care about you enjoying your stay.
