After travelling in the SI for eight days I found the most comfortable bed in Geraldton at the Scenic Route Motor Lodge. Pleasant host and hostess who were friendly and helpful with local advice and suggestions.

The room was huge in size and you get a nice big TV in the room. We checked in after hours and the process was simple. I called couple days beforehand and was informed my room number and that the key will be left in the room and the door unlocked so we can just check in ourselves. We arrived...

Pros: Clean, spacious rooms, very tidy, modern I thought they might be noisy close to the main road but we didn't hear anything. We were here with a big group and so lots of friends were in different rooms and it was great for that! Close to other rooms but still private.

This was a one night stay on our drive from Queenstown to Christchurch. That's a beautiful, scenic drive past Lake Tekapo and it takes much longer than one expects so Geraldine is a perfect stop. The owners are kiwi and they're wonderful. We arrived a bit late and they were patient and welcoming. They keep a very clean, comfortable motel....

This motel is very tidy, clean and well equipped. It is fairly new and everything inside is in very good condition. The unit I stayed in was average sized for a motel with a small table and kitchen with the usual equipment. Similar with the bathroom. It was quiet with very little noise from the occupied neighbouring unit. No road...

We stayed one night. Geraldine is a very nice town and we were very pleased to stay in Scenic Route Motor Lodge. The welcome was good and the room was of a good standard. The bathroom was very nice. We'd be happy to stay there again if we were in Geraldine.

The hosts here are extremely friendly and even their cat will greet you on arrival. Rooms are well equipped and large size. The area is on the edge of town and although traffic noise is there, it wasn't an annoyance. Watch the hot water use though as we found it ran out after 1 shower and a few dishes. Overall...
