A small group of us stayed here for 1 night while on the Alps to Ocean bike trail. We booked 2x2 bedroom units to give us plenty of space & kitchen facilities. The units were great (the superior 2 bdrm was huge). Everything was fine and we had a great stay.

Australian travelers. Just an overnighter on our trip to Christchurch but glad we chose here! Very modern. Friendly staff. Comfy beds. Were advised of things to see on our upcoming day. Great value for money.

We stayed here on our way through to Queenstown after a day of fishing. We received a friendly greeting and were very pleased with our room which was very clean, warm and large. The tackle shop at reception, with everything you need (especially if you managed to lose lures, sinkers during the day!) was an added bonus. Highly recommend.

Comfortable, neat, typical NZ country town Motel with the most lovely friendly country folk owners whom just have a general live of their hometown. I loved that they had 'Make-up Facecloths' ... I don't know how many lovely white Facecloths I have stained removing my makeup 😊👍🏻

We had gotten stuck due to the pass being closed for the night and had to find somewhere to stay after 9 or 10pm at night. Sierra Motel looked promising and to our delight we found it delivered! Price was good considering it was such short notice, the unit we were given was clean, warm and nicely presented. The staff/...
