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... More

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.

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.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. We found the apartment to be clean and comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen was a little dated, but had everything we needed. We really enjoyed having such spacious accommodation. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for the ease of staying with you. Arrived late at night which wasn't an issue for them. Heaters on, wi-if working and very cosy. Defiantly would recommend. Worth a stay to break up the journey between Christchurch and Queenstown if trying to drive through. Thanks 👏🏼
