As soon as I arrived I was greeted with a smile and Paula could not have been anymore helpful giving me a map with the local super market aswell as recommended dinning spots. We had room 16 which was the last at the end meaning we only adjoined with one other room. Having stayed in the city on our previous...

This was a nice, clean and spacious hotel with a friendly management team. Location and value were also good. However, it was a hot night with no air conditioning. The bed was also way too soft and we woke up with back aches. These two negatives are the reason for the reduced rating.

One bedroom apartment that fit 4 adults easily. Full kitchen, great beds, very clean and quiet. 5-10 min walk to stores and food. the manager was not very helpful. If we had questions it seemed a bother. We did love the room though. Everything closes early in the area but the Cosmo hotel had great food.

Check in we were greeted politely, but I wouldn't say friendly, and given milk and a map of town with nearest supermarket circled and recommended Denniston Dog for dinner. She forgot to give us the key so a trip back to reception was required. Unit was 2 bedroom with a extra single bed in lounge. Weather was terrible and the...

Hi there, Pleased you enjoyed our very clean and good sized rooms. So sorry I forgot to give you your key, guess we all forget things every now and then with it being our busy season, things can get forgotten. The squeegee mop is for your wet floor bathroom, you use it to pull the water back to the drain...

Clean, spacious typical motel building where you park in front of the door to your unit. My only complaint is the use of overpowering air freshener/room deodorizer. It is so strong it is nauseating. The sheets also smell strongly of fragrance (and not in a good way). NZ itself has such fresh clean air that it's a shame to cover...

This place was lovely and clean, the beds were comfortable, but there wasn't enough chairs around the dining table for us (only had 3 chairs - there were four of us and bedding was for four too). I'd prefer to see the main bed in the bedroom and the kids beds in the living area - but this was a...

Hi there Thank you for your comments on our clean rooms and comfortable beds, I'm sorry I'm a little confused as our rooms have a chair per person, so unsure how you only had 3 chairs? We have 2 at the table to against the wall in the main room and then 1 in the back bedroom. Yes its normally...

Would recommend - kitchen equipment just needs the addition of a sieve! The kitchen space is small but you can cook for a family reasonably well. Had a very good night's sleep here and would certainly choose it again - good for Cape Foulwind and Punakaiki Rocks.

Great place to stay - staff are friendly and helpful, motel room was spotless and had everything we needed. Beds are super comfy and the motel is in a great quiet spot so we didn't hear any traffic at all. The trampoline and play ground for the kids was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

What a fantastic find in a bustling little town. We were warmly welcomed by friendly staff and the amenities were great. We were amazed by the quality od the beds, linen, fixtures and fittings. It was a very comfortable and delightful stay during our South Island trip. We would highly recommend!!
