    This has to be one of the best motels we have stayed in on our travels around New Zealand. Excellent rooms and very spacious right on the harbor and close to the town. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would recommend. MERV.

    Definitely the nicest accommodation I've had in a long while. Room was generously proportioned, as was the bathroom, and was spotlessly clean. Owners were very nice and helpful. Great location, too with restaurants within walking distance.
