Friendly staff who were very accommodating in providing rooms close by with our family booking. A very clean and tidy room. Great location with a dynamite view.
We have already booked our next stay with them!

Room tip: Thoroughly enjoyed the room with its private spa - just what you needed at the end of the day!

We arrived about 700pm without a booking after a long drive from Wellington.

We received a warm friendly greeting and were shown to our room.

The room was absolutely spotless, with a small jar of home-baked cookies. Lovely lake view.

We would stay here again without hesitation.

Our stay was lovely here. Perfect for families. Very clean and awesome staff. Our room was cleaned daily and the cleanliness when we arrived was awesome. Beautiful view of the lake and perfect location just down the road from the local town centre. Will definitely be back again! Owners are lovely and we’re always around if you ever needed anything. Highly recommend!

We enjoy hot tubs and much prefer one's with a foot "well" below the seating level. The motel's guide sheet shows that the tub water is on between 0800 & 2000. But our pool was not on at 0830 and thus was warm but not hot. Suggest the staring time is complied with and make the close down time to 2200.

Thank you Drallom2002, we loved having you and thank you for staying with us. Apologies the hot pool wasn't hot enough in the morning, it does take some time to warm up. We appreciate the kind words and will take on your feedback to make sure our hot pools are up to our very high standards. Kind Regards,
