This is a basic motel, good value for money, 5 -10 min walk to town centre, cafes, convention centre & theatre. Very clean. Excellent hot shower. Very comfortable bed...had great sleeps. Improvements would be a sharp cutting knife and another bedside table. Receptionist was very helpful and friendly.

I have read the reviews and didn't come across any of them. My motel room was very clean and the staff were very helpful with giving me information and greeting me to the motel. I have no problem returning on my next trip to South Island.

Ok so its Easter weekend, and prices in the town are elevated, but I'd still expect more for my money. Its a minimalist establishment - thats fine, but a dirty iron (and handed a bottle of spray cleaner), broken window latches, broken soap tray, a reluctance to supply a second (small) jug of milk. And yes they advertise NO CREDIT...

From the rude and argumentative way that front desk staff advise foreign visitors that they must pay in cash, to the cavalier explanations that only some rooms have WiFi, the front desk staff are unpleasant, They assure visitors that the cash only policy was on the reservation, in fact I reserved through Expedia and received NO such warning, The window...

The rooms do not have air conditioning and are very dated. The motel does not supply shampoo. A number of the cups were dirty. Parking is a problem as there is very little space and it is extremely difficult to get in and out of the motel. Two positives - the room was quite big and the internet was free...

I guess you get what you pay for, but here it's even difficult to pay. The place only accepts cash or a NZ debit card - which is tricky if you are from overseas. The facilities are basic to say the least and it's the first hotel I've stayed in for many years that does not even offer shampoo. Just...

This is a great motel - it's not a flash motel but it's tidy and clean and super affordable. It is a lovely short walk to town and great cafe's. It has good laundry and kitchen facilities. The owner and staff are very freindly

This is not a five star motel - its an older style BUT it has everything you need when staying away from home. It is clean, tidy and very affordable. The owner and staff are lovely and very obliging. Great laundry and kitchen facilities. Easy walk to town.

Very basic accomodation but clean and adequate if just using it as a base. Has kitchenettes in room but also larger kitchens to cook in. New TV's just been put in. The wifi is free but not good at all.

$99 for 2 adults and a pet, what more do you need. If your after a place to rest after a long drive for a good price then this is it. If you want sky plus a massage look elsewhere! Yes you can hear next door but it didnt bother us. Will use again and thanks for the help in...
