We stayed here and were very impressed with everything about the place. The reception area was large, lots of tourist info on display, friendly receptionist, free lollies and complimentary pens. The two bedroom unit was large and spotless with a TV in the lounge and each bedroom. The bathroom had underfloor heating plus it was well stocked with toiletries and...

We had the one bedroom apartment. 4 of us slept comfortably. 2 TV's limited wifi but they gave us a bunch of codes to use for our teenagers. Great staff, helpful and friendly. Room was a little dated but it was very clean. We recommend it. Lots of room.

I called to confirm my reservation and to ask if they would be there when I arrived as I was arriving after 9pm. Although the desk closed at 9 o'clock the wonderful woman who I spoke with set up my room for me, set up my breakfast for the next day and left a key for me to pick up....

Booked this hotel at short notice for my husband and his 3 brothers going to a family funeral. The guys were very impressed with the size of the unit (2 bdrm) the layout, the beds, the space, and I could go on. The staff were friendly and overall the men were very happy.

This motel gives excellent value for money. Our was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. Staff were most obliging and friendly. Laundry was great only $2 to dry $0 for a wash. Bed was great. Decor is of an older style but still in good condition. Definitely recommend. Close to town for access to eating places too

Our room was spacious and the shower was excellent. The laundry facilities were brilliant - washing machine free and just $2.00 for the drier. Felt like good soundproofing as I could not hear the other rooms like most other places. A bit dated but not worried about that when you have big fluffy towels, comfy bed, nice sheets and a...

The rooms were very spacious, very clean, pleasant atmosphere and affordable. It's great for people with families. We booked this place for two nights before our trip. The second day we got stranded on Stewart Island due to weather conditions. We called the owner at Balmoral Lodge to let them know what happened. The owners were very understanding. They only...
