Location is as good as it gets, walking distance to town but in a quiet garden setting. Room was large, spotless, modern with everything you need. Small but nice verandah looking out across the garden. Had a swim in the pool, sparklingly clean water and plenty of lounges etc. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. This was one of the...

A perfect stay, service that went above and beyond, and lovely rooms. This was one of the best stays I had, in all my three weeks in New Zealand. The owners will go to great lengths to make your stay enjoyable.

What a lovely, friendly pair in Alan & Lisa (our hosts); the accommodation was large, modern, very clean and had everything one might need. The gardens were large an immaculate. Although we didnt get to use it there was a lovely swimming pool on-site. Laundry facilities were available. Our hosts were only too happy to help us find trips and...

Очень понравилось провести 2 ночи в мотеле. Чистая ухоженная территория с открытым бассейном и площадка с BBQ, чистота в номере. Вместо планировавшегося платного интернета нам предоставили 3GB в сутки (без нашей просьбы). Дружественная, доброжелательная атмосфера Алана и Лизы. Видя, что наш английский язык плох, тут же предложили помощь в заказе новых и подтверждении уже заказанных туров. Жаль, что наш напряженный...

This was my choice for the Christmas days during my recent New Zealand trip and it was perfect. The hosts were very friendly, helpful and accomodating. Despite the holidays they were reachable and stopped by with some chocolate on Christmas day. The rooms were spacy, had a well equipped kitchen, a modern bath and a nice patio. Laundry was also...

A wonderfully set motel just 5 mins walk from the i-site in the centre of town but in its own quiet gardens. The hosts bent over backwards to facilitate our stay - car could be left on site whilst we did the trek and they put valuables in their safe. Very comfortable apartment with a view over the lawn and...
