This motel is in a great location and was very clean, comfortable bed. It is a little dated but owners do appear to be renovating them. It wasn't very private with large windows opening onto the driveway - okay at night if you shut the curtains, but daytime you are a bit on view. Owners were very nice and helpful....

The staff gave us good directions and a map for our next Hotel and told us about a few good places to eat. The room was very spotless it is a little older but that just gave it charm. You open the door and you have a beautiful view of the water it was a five minute walk to a...

Although the upstairs unit we stayed in, for 6 adults,was somewhat dated it was tidy and clean. The fold out sofa bed was not comfortable but the other beds were. It was almost like staying in a small house. Staff were very nice. It was great having the lake across the road and it was a five minute walk to...

We have no complaints about this hotel at all. We were very grateful for the spacious rooms during our nights there. The staff was extremely helpful, storing our large bags in their back room for us while we went on the Milford Track. The rooms were clean and well stocked with cookware, and the beds very comfortable. We would definitely...

Stayed here twice over the course of a week, both times was happy have stayed here and the owners are very nice. The first night we stayed in a two bedroom older room that had not been remodeled. Very dated but comfortable just the same and clean. The price was right and we hit the trail the next morning. Upon...

Stayed in 2br. The bathroom was between the 2 rooms with a sliding door both sides. Definitely not good for sharing with friends not family. The room was in need of an upgrade, looking a very tired Unit, especially the bathroom. Laundry facility was good and a short walk to town along lakefront. Tried to arrange an extra room but...

We just stayed at this motel before and after The Milford Sound track. We found the proprietors very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They gave us a late checkout to rest our achey weary legs. The units were well equipped, very comfortable and clean.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the motels 2 bedroom apartment. It was clean tidy and well thought out as it gave us the opportunity to rustle up some great meals when we chose.

This motel is in a great spot in the town, directly opposite the lake and minutes walk from the restaurants, supermarket etc. The rooms were comfortable... the bathroom a little small but ok for just a couple of nights. Steve (the manager) was really helpful, made restaurant reservations for us and also helped call the AA when we had problems...

In our 18-day tour of the South Island this was the worst accommodation we experienced. As a couple, we had a 2-bedroom unit which would have slept 5, but unlike the previous reviewer, we weren't offered an alternative during our 3-night stay; our unit had an old metal bathroom sink and shower base in a poky bathroom; there were no...
