“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

We have just had a great stay in this motel. The units were immaculate and had everything you could need. The owners are so friendly and helpful, above and beyond what you would expect. Great for families and couples alike.

This motel was lovely so friendly helpful and well appointed units with lovely big TV's and everything one could want. There is a spa and nice little gardens. We were so impressed and when we had finished our holidays it was the one that stood out the most.

We would go back in a heartbeat as we felt so welcomed there and they were so helpful in all our questions and queries.

Room Tip: The one near the spa and near the office was fantastic and not noisy at all

Kelvin was doing some painting on the outside when we arrived. He dropped everything to give us a warm welcome. We were impressed by the size of the unit, most definitely very good value for money. Everything is spotlessly clean.
We had a very comfortable undisturbed sleep. Gladys was at the desk when we checked out and she was just as warm and friendly as Kelvin.

Room Tip: Unit 5 is ideal for a couple. It is very roomy and well equipped. It's next to the office which...

Thanks for your review. I can't keep the paintbrush out of his hands. After painting the inside of all of the units he is now working on the outside to enhance it's appearance.
We are pleased you enjoyed our unit and our hospitality and hope to see you again sometime.
I'm sure those friends will want to see you again soon.

Warm, friendly and helpful hosts made the stay in a lovely clean and comfortable unit most enjoyable and a long day's trip around the cape on motorcycle. Thank you for the special too. Apologies for the delay in the making comment - no reflection on your great motel, just circumstances.

It's great that you remembered to write the review and we thank you so much. It's seem I am just as slow as responding and I apologise for that. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and you obviously got home ok. We will look you up if we ever get down to Nelson.
