We stayed at this motel for two nights while on a driving holiday around the South Island. The unit is spacious and the kitchen is the most well equipped we have experienced. The service offered by the hosts is excellent. Marianne helped us with great options of what to see and do in the area. We will be recommending this...

This motel, whilst dated, is well maintained and clean. It is well situated in Cromwell in close proximity to most local amenities. It occupies a prime position with picturesque outlooks over the Cromwell golf course. Kitchen facilities are basic but adequate. Complimentary teas(Dilmah range), coffee and hot chocolate is supplied. Bathroom and toilet facilities are clean with a liquid soap...
