We booked this last minute and we were so pleasantly surprised! The lady at the front desk was one of the most lovely, friendly, enthusiastic and helpful people we've encountered on our 10 day vacation. She gave us a cookie (biscuit) and a bottle of milk of our choice. Then went out of her way to give us a quick...

Central motel. Good reception, service, etc. Stayed one night. Rooms as you'd expect in a drive-in Motel. Clean and functional. Everything worked and the bed was comfy! Quite for a good nights sleep. Not much near the Motel. You'll need your car to drive back into town or go find a restaurant or pub!

We stayed here for one night as we couldn't get across to Stewart Island because of the weather. We had stayed at a different motel the night before but were not impressed. As a result we looked for somewhere different to stay for our additional night. It was a warm welcome that we received! The room was really nice,bright and...

Super friendly staff who are really helpful. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and tidy. Surprisingly quiet despite it being on a main road. Definitely will be staying here again. A wee gem.

Walking distance to the water tower and the beautiful Queen's park. Excellent service by the friendly staff. The room is immaculately clean and we are very happy with the configuration of the beds to accommodate our needs traveling with 2 young kids. Highly recommended to everyone. A great value for money.
