Very clean and staff hospitable to deal. Ideal for small stay. Especially if your travelling from end of sth Island to the other. Currently driving from picton to Christchurch alternative route takes 7 hours. It is the only main route, while the the normal route is still being fixed. The motel provided a good rest stop.

We were here for 1 night and the motel was nice comfy and in good area. The rooms are tidy and warm, it has all that is needed for the comfort stay and the owners are very warm people. Onsite parking and good neighbourhood is a big plus, we were happy with our stay.

Family run motel that was very maintained offering clean and tidy rooms. The location was quiet and only a short walk to a variety of eateries. The room also offered a kitchenette with microwave. Good free internet service.
