This place is a little gem. We were on a budget and the only room that was available was the basement room. Don't be put off by the name. It's really roomy, very private and super clean. The bathroom could do with updating. The decor in the room is modern though. It's super close to the lake and the centre...

Another perfect spot in NZ and a much better place to stay than neighbouring Queenstown which can be visited on your way through. Spotlessly clean, a very warm welcome and perfect service, tips and help. Free laundry facilities, easy parking and on a short walking distance from all the restaurants. Nice view of the lake is a bonus. An absolute...

We stayed in the 1 bedroom lake view chalet for 4 nights. It was very spacious. This unit had a great view Which we enjoyed during our morning coffee/breakfast and also 3 dinners. They have good wifi, a set of bikes, a BBQ, and laundry facility. I can say that we used all of these things and everything worked splendidly....

As we were travelling for 6 weeks, we were watching our budget and so I had booked the basement apartment here. It was the least expensive but also one of the most memorable (in a good way) of the places we stayed in New Zealand. The room itself was very comfortable, sufficiently spacious and equipped with all we needed. Whilst...

Great motel with a very friendly welcome, good advice, good views over the lake and mountains whilst convenient for the town, access to couple of bikes was a nice touch. I would thoroughly recommend one of the best I've stayed in.
