I've stayed at this motel at least 5 times now and each time I have found the rooms to be clean, tidy with the basics supplied. This is not a 5 star hotel - but it is very good for money with only a 2 minute walk into town. Although the motel supplies cooking pots, there is only an electric...

Brilliant location right at the top of the main street. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. Everything you could need in the room was provided. There's a laundry on site which was very useful. I would definitely stay again.

Walk into town, free off street parking provided which was good as Queenstown parking is difficult. Free wifi. Late checkout available if requested early. The inside has been refurbished but the outside needs an update desperately. We were here in January and it was quite warm when we got there as the evening sun beats right into our rooms. There...

We booked a standard studio. Location is great only a very short walk to busy areas of Queenstown. The room was clean but looked worn and smelled very musty. Could be a results of it being a ground floor room which was partially underground.

Located within a short walking distance from the heart of Queenstown, this is a balanced motel-style property with on-premise parking. The rooms are spacious with cooking facilities and some rooms offer huge windows with views of Queenstown and the surrounding mountains. Check-in and check-out was friendly and hassle-free. Wifi coverage and speed is fair but the data allowance is capped...

Greeted by a very friendly manager at reception who allowed us to check in early. Straight away both my partner and I had a great feeling about the place. Although it may not look like a 5 star motel - the service was 100%! Our room was clean, well presented and the bed was comfy (a must for me!). Wifi...
