Quiet, spacious, small and friendly.

Stayed one night in Unit 4 which had a separate lounge/kitchen area and bed room with Queen bed. Unit was very spacious and clean. Motel is in a quiet residential area, close the river and just a short drive to town with its many shops and restaurants.

Overnight Stay

Pros: Clean, comfortable bedding, spacious room, excellent service.
Stayed overnight, and checked in late and out early so didn't spend much time in the room. We booked as a coupe and ended up having an 8 year old with us. The Motel staff were very accommodating and changed us into a room with a single bed when we checked in. The room had everything we would reasonably expect, was clean and the beds were comfortable. The guy at check-out thoughtfully gave us some ideas of things to do on the way home, (although he did seem quite intense in our interactions).

Fantastic room, very clean & very comfortable.

Pros: Everything was perfect.
Cons: I can't think of anything - only wish we could have stayed longer & the weather was better.
Location: Plenty to see and do or you can just relax & take it easy.
Fantastic room, very clean & very comfortable. Warmly welcomed by the owner who provided excellent service to weary travellers including restaurant and local interest information which was most helpful and appreciated. An excellent place to stay in a beautiful part of New Zealand. Highly recommended.

Pros: Cleanliness and comfort.
Cons: A few more cooking utensils and kitchenware (saucepan & egg cups ) would have been welcomed.
Location: Close to town and easy walking distance to most amenities.
A well positioned, and very clean and comfortable motel. Manager extremely friendly and helpful, promptly attending to any issues. We found the curtains in the unit insufficient to block out external lights and early morning sun, purely an issue as one of our party requires a darkened room to sleep. Otherwise an ideal and enjoyable stay. Thank you.
