A great night stay at this accomodation. The manager accommodated us at the last minute, during a busy time of year. We stayed in one of the modern studio units, the further set from the road. Modern kitchenette, great bathroom and shower was hot and great. The manager was very nice and told the kids the history of the eels...

Friendly welcome to this motel in St Arnaud - very fair pricing - same price all year. This lovely log cabins are set in a landscaped garden, each a little separate from the other. It was very clean and tidy, though the hot plate was not working - he did warn us about this. Asked for wifi and got the...

Cosy and sufficient. First time stayed in two bedroom place — nice and spacious and shower pressure was awesome. Second time stayed in the studio apartment which was great. The only reason I'm not giving this place 5 stars is because the owner yelled at me (rather loud and rude and grumpy) about putting their towel on the sunny rocks...

We had a very nice evening. Loved the walk to the Lake. Quiet warm unit. No face cloths or tissues. Comfortable bed and linen. Friendly reception. Noise comes through the walls from next unit so that might be annoying if you wanted an early night.

Located on the highway this motel is convenient to all local attractions - the rooms are large and very clean - road noise is zero. Our room was at the back of the complex with a view to the hills and native bush gardens. The weather turned quite chilly during our stay - we were snug and warm. Take the...

We stayed here at both ends of a winter Nelson Lakes tramping trip. Rooms were clean and easily warmed up and we got some great advice about what to watch out for on the track in winter from our experienced mountaineering hosts. Lock box for our stuff was really handy too. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others considering...

We stayed 2 nights in number 6 during the week so we could ski at Rainbow Ski-field and walk the tracks around the Lake Rotoiti. Lots of room for the 3 of us in the living area. Slat bed was a bit hard but we were very warm with heaters in both bedrooms and the living area. Great shower. Beautiful...

We enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed an extra night. The hosts were really friendly and our two young daughters had heaps of fun using the snow sleds that the hosts offered us during our stay. A fantastic location with super warm and comfortable rooms. Only a short walk to cafes and the school playground next door is...

We stayed in the family cabin. Heaters was already on when we booked in very late. Very spacious cottage with a very nice kitchen. Woke up to watch the rabbits play on the grass. I can recommend this to anyone. Lake Rotoiti 5 minutes drive away.
