Stayed 3 Nights at this motel and although under new management we found the service as good as ever. Sited close to a series of good food outlets we walked to and from dinner. Will definitely stay again.

Unit had everything we needed. It was very close to the arena where we needed to go. Very clean. Staff were friendly. Had a great sleep and the unit was super warm and cosy. Would definitely stay again.

Great place to stay, the only negative thing I would have to say is that it is located on a main road and the past few nights I have been here there are constantly police sirens patrolling the area. The place itself is great, lovely people and clean spacious rooms. There is also a super value supermarket conveniently located across... More

I have stayed here before a couple of years ago and really loved it, so chose to stay here again. Unfortunately my experience wasn't as good as the last time. When I checked in the guy did his job but made no effort to be even slightly friendly. From the last time I stayed I knew they provided a free... More

We were attending an event at the nearby Pioneer Stadium so this was great for convenience. The reason I didnt give this a five star is that both partner and i were unable to connect to the free wifi. This was very annoying as we use it to contact our children. when we went to ask at the office they... More

Stayed here as we needed to attend an event nearby. Rooms were clean, tidy and well appointed; with good beds, lounge suits and TV with Sky + free car parking. Not the best location if you are needing to be in town, but worked well for us. Would consider again if the location suited.

Checked in for a night's stay as the motel is less than 10 mins drive from the Tranzalpine Railway to Greymouth. My reviews are based on: Cleanliness: 4/5 Comfort: 3.5 as bed was squeaky but acceptable Location: 3.5/5. 300m walk to some bars and cafe. Fun fact, Addington was one of the least affected area from the 2011 EQ. Security:... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel.

Fabulous place to stay if you are going to a concert or event at HornCastle Arena. Only 2 minutes walk. Lovely clean modern rooms, well stocked with a good choice of coffee and teas. Good facilities. Location is very good, easy to find and not to far to Bars/Restaurants. We will stay again.
