Clean, friendly and close to airport. Ideally situated to Hornby mall, however takeaway Pizza places were not friendly for order and delivery. Ash trays outside on the floors was not really good as people smoking outside still blows into rooms when windows are open., Smoking area away from hotel would be a good idea as inside is a no smoking...

Lovely, comfortable room. Very clean and tidy. Was just what I needed after a few days of roughing it at Mt Cook. Super friendly lady on reception. Shower pressure wasn't great, but the bathroom was good other than that. No complaints

My wife and I stayed here for a single night prior to flying back to the UK. It was ideally located only 3 km from the airport and was just what we needed. The room was clean, tidy and well-equipped. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. We would stay there again, if we needed a stopover.

The service was very good, we received all the information we needed at check-in. The location was also ideal, just a few km from the airport, down a single straight road. The rooms were nice and clean.

This motel was easy to find after a hectic day of driving. Appreciated having proper milk in the fridge and the wi-fi was excellent. The recommended Thai takeaway that was delivered meant a relaxing evening for us.

I would recommend this as a very classic style motel. My room was clean and bed and pillows very comfortable. It had basic amenities and the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. I was traveling for business and leaving at the airport early so it was a great location for me.
