Lovely and clean. So close to cafes, shops, restaurants. Rooms on the small side though. If you want clean and comfortable then this is the place for you. Not much road noise. The bed was very comfortable!

This motel, I believe, is better than a 4 1/2 Star! It is tidy, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the room I stayed in was just what I wanted! A full kitchenette, spacious bathroom, private patio, 50+ channel Sky TV, DVD player, and comfortable bed! Seeing is believing, I will definitely be going back! Yes, the grounds...

On a main road but rooms are set back and we did not notice any noise. We had a one bedroom suite and they split the King bed into two singles for my sister and I with no fuss. The rooms are small so if staying more than one night I would go for a suite as you then get...

Amazing stay at this motel. We had to change room half way through our stay although they were perfectly adaptable and the staff were extremely easy to work with. Speaking about staff, they were amazing! Every day we would get back after a long day of walking and all we wanted was a nice bath or perhaps a comfy bed......

I didn't expect much from a motel, but this one was great: Very friendly staff, spotlessly clean, nice kitchenette (fully equipped and lots of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and milk), pillow menu. The bed was a bit hard and I could feel springs, and the TV was in a corner that was good to view from the bed, but not...

Last minute booking so didn't have a lot of options for a weekend stay. The room was comfortable but I would have to say not very big.The worst thing about it was the bathroom, very small no vanity as such, so no storage and a shower curtain over the bath. Very friendly staff, in fact the owner came out to...

Brilliant stay here. Was running very late so rang reception around 7pm when I was coming through Tekapo. Helpful person on the phone told me where to find my keys, and gave me his phone number in case there was any problems. On arrival I found a note with instructions to find my room. Located upstairs at the back of...

we randomly picked this placed while driving along. It is located on a main road & we were concerned the traffic noise would keep us awake as we were close to the road, but we didn't notice it. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful, going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It is...

Friendly people. Even offered to carry in our luggage. We were given a room towards the back which meant practically no traffic noise. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. We only had a studio unit, but it suited our needs. Was warm and the bed was really comfortable. A later check out time of 11am was a bonus. No...

This motel is clean and modern with features more akin to a larger hotel. My room was quiet and nicely equiped with everyting you need. It is located close to the Riccarton Mall and easily accessible on the Purple bus line from the airport. I was able to pick up the Snowman ski shuttle to Mt. Hutt within a 3...
