The rooms were well appointed and the proprietor was kind enough to upgrade our rooms when he saw that we had two largish kids rather than 2 smallish kids which was great. Rooms had great kitchenette with all the pots and pans you needed which we somewhat took advantage of. There werent any good restauants too close by unfortunately so...

We stayed for one night prior to Christmas as they were highly rated on Tripadvisor. Their units are very clean and customer service was a very high standard. Keep up the good work - we would have even paid a little extra for such a fine motel.

Great location literally 5 mins to airport, great service and clean comfortable rooms. Would highly recommend! Quite popular, it was full when we stayed. We had a hire car and the service station was up the road and several eateries around for dinner.

Rooms double glazed I think so noise not a problem. Car parking at front of property. The staff were very good and went that extra mile especially with ideas of what to do, where to eat. Rooms spacious, very clean. Nz studios never seem to have shelving for groceries and clothing for long term travellers.

Stayed for one night on way to a funeral. A blissfully night away from children. The greeting was superb. I was taken to a warm and spotless room with all amenities and given a decent sized bottle of milk. Fully operational sky channels kept me entertained and I had a great nights sleep in a comfy bed.

Really clean motel and nice stay. Room was warm and had electric blanket too. Owners were super friendly and helpful - great recommendation for dinner - thank you. We had takeaways so would have liked a larger spoon for dishing up but that would be the only negative comment we would have. Will definitely be back to stay.
