Stayed on a 2 bedroom unit. Heaps of room to spread ourselves out. Comfortable beds and pillows. Very friendly but unobtrusive owner/operators. Such a relaxing quiet stay but still a handy location to Havelock, Queen Charlotte walk and Blenheim wineries.

Lovely motel. Idyllic rural setting. Lovely owners. The best bed, pillow and duvets. Incredibly helpful owner's who went over and beyond to make our stay wonderful. Will definitely return if we are down that way again.
