Great place to relax. Clean, spacious, tidy and quiet. Disability unit good although couch a bit low but comfortable. Modern decor as units have been refurbished. Owners very helpful indeed and nothing too much trouble for them.

The motel was clean and quiet, and reasonably well equipped. We suffered from noisy guests in an adjacent room as the walls are not very thick, but the location itself is very quiet, backing onto a large bush reserve. The queen size bed was a little saggy but comfy for all that. Our two bedroom unit was good value. There... More

Unfortunately we could only stay for a night but would have loved to have stayed longer. Found this motel to be in a handy location, nice and quiet, and clean. All we could have wished for for the very reasonable price. Thank you.

I would usually use Expedia for all my accomodation requirement when travelling. I booked a room in this motel at a great special rate of $99 per night. To my surprise, we stayed in a refurbished room and it was great. Great value for my $$$$. Great customer service from the owner too. Close to township & Pukekura Park.

We had one of the newly refurbished unit, new coat of paint and modernly furnished. We have 2 adult cats and owner Peter was very accommodating to our needs. Large backyard area for the kids to roam and only 2 min away from bush walk to Te Henui stream.
