Great place to stay. Not that we used it but void kitchen. Very friendly welcome. Walking distance to main centre, and hot tubs. Not far to the river for fishing or further up the road the canals. Will be back

This motel is located relatively close to Lake Twizel, Lake Tekapo and Mount Cook national park. I stayed here for one night only, however, I strongly suggest booking more nights as there is much to explore. The 2 bedroom self contained motel is a great stay for anyone traveling with kids. The accomodation actually looks better than it is on...

We were warmly greeted when we arrived so felt very welcomed. We were also offered dinner recommendations. The one bedroom room was clean and comfortable with a good shower. Would happily stay here again.

A small group of us stayed here for 1 night while on the Alps to Ocean bike trail. We booked 2x2 bedroom units to give us plenty of space & kitchen facilities. The units were great (the superior 2 bdrm was huge). Everything was fine and we had a great stay.

We stayed here on our way through to Queenstown after a day of fishing. We received a friendly greeting and were very pleased with our room which was very clean, warm and large. The tackle shop at reception, with everything you need (especially if you managed to lose lures, sinkers during the day!) was an added bonus. Highly recommend.

Comfortable, neat, typical NZ country town Motel with the most lovely friendly country folk owners whom just have a general live of their hometown. I loved that they had 'Make-up Facecloths' ... I don't know how many lovely white Facecloths I have stained removing my makeup 😊👍🏻

We had gotten stuck due to the pass being closed for the night and had to find somewhere to stay after 9 or 10pm at night. Sierra Motel looked promising and to our delight we found it delivered!
