A lovely very quiet place to stay, decor is a bit dated but in immaculate order. The bathroom is very small but the shower has fantastic pressure. A great place to stay as a stopover on a trip.

Disappointment in Levin.

Pros: The location is great - can walk to the main street shops and restaurants. it was very clean and tidy.
Cons: The drooping pot plant and twee ornament could go. Remove the single bed from the unit 5 we were in.. prior instructions about where to park.
The units are really small. There was just enough space to walk between the double bed and the single bed which was not what was portrayed on the website. We were offered an upgrade the next day but would have had to pay extra. the spontaneous offer was appreciated. We had booked two units and the single unit only had room for a double bed it was so small. However the bathroom, toilet area was the same size as the advertised 3 person unit, which was a saving grace. Two yapping small dogs belonging to the owners were annoying

Warm, comfy hotel close to town

Clean and tidy motel, when I arrived at 7pm on a chilly night the owners had turned my heater on and left an inside light on for me. Great place to stay :)
