Stayed for two nights here, wish it was more, you step into your room and are taken aback, the layout and furnishings are lovely, the bathroom is huge with a big spa bath in the corner and still heaps of room. The surroundings of the motel are nice, good size swimming pool.

We stayed in a studio unit on the ground floor with a garden view. The room was comfortable and the shower fantastic. The hosts were accommodating and put a roll away bed in the room for our daughter as there were no other rooms available at the time of our stay. We enjoyed the quiet room with a relaxing view...

We are pleased to hear that the reviewer found overall her stay to be pleasant and relaxing. We are constantly upgrading the property and will consider the comments about the size of the television when these are replaced. Our pool system includes a heat pump which maintains the minimum water temperature within the industry and manufacturer guidelines. The recommended temperature...

Over the Christmas period myself and my family stayed here. Our ages ranged between 3 through to 87 years of age. Some of us longer than others. We found the Hosts of this Motel to be very unwelcoming, totally unreasonable and completely unfestive. We had our family Christmas at the Motel which we thoroughly enjoyed until 8:45pm where we were...

We are sorry that this reviewer found his experience at this motel disappointing however we are very concerned that this review contains a number of inaccuracies and does not fully convey the circumstances. The family group referred to in the review booked 6 of our 13 rooms and stayed with us over Christmas. We were close to fully booked at...

I stayed here for 8 nights and found it just perfect for me as I wanted to be independent but close to my brother and his wife. It was spotless, the kitchen was modern and the facilities were all there and I was delighted to find a coffee plunger as I had brought my own coffee to NZ. The towels...

The motel was just 5 mins drive from the the main food and shopping street making it accessible yet away from the hustle. It is on the main highway and made it easy to be on our way to Franz Josef. Room was nice and clean. Comfortable stay overall

We were competing in the South Island Master's Games. This was situated conveniently close (within walking distance) of the Badminton Hall, and the main reason for selecting the Motel. There were four rooms booked, 2 for families of 3 and 2 rooms for 4 players. Our room was tidy and well set out. We had added another person late after...

My husband and I stayed at Parkside Lodge while our son was playing football at a National High school tournament.

We have stayed here before -5 years ago. It's close to the friends we wanted to visit. We love unit 12 overlooking the beautiful park land and views of the mountains. Hosts are friendly and helpful but the decor needs a serious makeover. Lovely to have a separate bedroom but the lounge has uncomfortable sofa and chair, the curtains are...

Nice quite spot, large tidy facilities. Pool was clean and well kept. A quick drive into town. Stayed in room 1 and only remark is that plumbing is a little noisy when others are using taps/ toilets I'm guessing.
