Comfortable Beds

Great except I was surrounded by a group of people who were up drinking and chatting directly outside my door so I couldn't even walk outside without tripping through the group and feeling awkward. Maybe set up a communal area that isn't interfering with other guests in their room.

Nice tidy motel, close to everything.

Pros: Proximity and quietness
Cons: Separate small soap/shampoo/body wash - don't like the one-does-all
Location: Good walking distance to shops and restaurants
Was within easy walking to nice restaurants but far enough that it was quiet at night. A 2-pk of biscuits as part of the coffee/tea on the first night, but don't get replaced. Not a biggie, but seems a bit cheap. One bottle of shampoo that doubles as a body wash, not that nice. The room was tidy and the bed was large, but it was small and for a 3 night stay was a bit claustrophobic. Did have a heater towel rail though, which so many in the South Island don't, so that was nice.

Small but clean, comfortable rooms. Great owners who are obviously trying to improve the place and so far, so good. Great new bbq and enjoyed relaxing by it.
