Reception was great and $125 included cooked breakfast. Location was great and close to the Lake. The room was basic but comfortable. The towels were clean and the bed was comfortable. We will stay here again.

A fantastic place to stay. The host were great. The free breakfast was great and you could even have cooked eggs or spagetti or baked beans for breakfast. The unit has all you need to relax and cook if you want to. 50 channels of tv if you want to chill out. just across the road from the lake, restaurant...

The hosts are lovely people and do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are basic but the prices are good so you get what you pay for! The rooms at the back of the motel are a bit dark so I'd pay more for one on the second floor. Showers are a bit average. Breakfasts are...

I find it hard to find any fault with this motel. We were there for one night and had an executive room with spa. The room had everything you could need. The bath was enormous, the shower powerful and the supplied towels clean and plentiful. The small kitchen had everything you'd need including microwave, kettle and toaster as well as...

There is a separate living room with a pull-out sofa bed, kitchenette, spacious bathroom and bedroom. Wifi and delivered breakfast is free. The proprietors, Karen and Terry, are warm and friendly and helpful with their knowledge of...

Best motel I've stayed in in NZ - and as a former rep I've tried a few. Wonderful hosts, the room (suite) was great, the location is fantastic for a walk into town and the complimentary breakfast is a lovely extra. Made me and the whole family feel really welcome and even let my wife and baby stay in the...

One night layover on route north. Spacious units directly across from the Lake. It's an easy walk into town too. The owners Karen & Terry were extremely helpful and accommodating for the duration of our stay. They showed us through the apartment on arrival, ensuring we were happy etc. It was raining heavily that evening and they offered to take...

Karen and Terry Carter were fantastic from start to end. Complimentary breakfast was always on time and delicious. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome and were always there for any help (logging into internet from our phone and driving us to a party). We have never experienced service this outstanding before.

We booked this motel based on the reviews we had read on this site. The unit we had was spacious, with bedroom and bathroom, kitchenette and lounge. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. The breakfast included in the price was very nice, well cooked poached eggs, good to start the day. The owners/managers very pleasant. Even though the...
