Good Afternoon Ngaire and Tane , Service has to be a big focus for our complex. We want people to feel important and not just about money coming in. We want all our staff to feel its about creating a positive vibe around the place, and that no matter what department they are in they show that to all the guests. We have come along way , and we haven't stopped wanting to better the experience. Small things can create a huge knock on effect, so the extras we offer really hit home. Thank you for choosing the Summit Motor Lodge, and we appreciate recommendations. Kind Regards The Team "Summit "
