In our 18-day tour of the South Island this was the worst accommodation we experienced. As a couple, we had a 2-bedroom unit which would have slept 5, but unlike the previous reviewer, we weren't offered an alternative during our 3-night stay; our unit had an old metal bathroom sink and shower base in a poky bathroom; there were no...

For the first 2 nights we were in one of the renovated rooms and it was a 5 rating. Unfortunately we had to move for our 3rd night and this was into a room yet to e renovated. Sadly this cannot have the same rating. Hence the loss of a star. Stephen was very helpful throughout our stay and booked...

This is a basic but very clean motel, in an excellent location just on the lakefront. Bathroom products were good quality stuff, the rooms were very clean and comfortable and regularly serviced. Hosts were exceptionally friendly, which I love about it most. They went out of their way to recommend places to see/do, and help make bookings. Absolutely recommend to...

This is a very traditional-style motel with very dated decor and small rooms. However, it was very clean and it is in a good location opposite the lake and within walking distance of the town. We had a two-bedroom unit and the bathroom was between the two bedrooms, having a door from each. The shower was not very powerful and...

The motel comprises of a row of two storey buildings divided into separate units. Each unit has its own dining cum living area leading to double bedroom, shower and wc. There is ample off road car parking space. Although there are cooking facilities the management advise that extra cost will be incurred if strong odours need to be isolated.

Brilliant location near lake and town!.No view from room. Simple but functional room with kitchenette. Really friendly helpful staff. Flaky wifi but they're looking into it. Felt homey. The whole place left us with happy memories!

It's an old style motel, that needs a face lift, in a fabulous location! Good linens, lots of hot water. Well set up kitchen. Close to town centre and on the lake. Bed could have been firmer for us. Clean.

This is a small, friendly, old fashioned motel with helpful on site managers. I changed our dates at the last minute and they could not have been more helpful. The location is great, close to the lakefront and a very short walk to the town centre and tour offices. It is a classic highway motel, some rooms have been renovated...

Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had to give up a hike in the National Park due to rain and wind and staff cheered us all up again with their happy and positive attitude. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very functional, with everything you need for your stay, including cooking and laundry.
