Lovely small home style motel with two beautifully appointed motel units out the back of a residential house near the centre of town. Very professional and friendly service. Not the cheapest option in town but money well spent - a lovely place to stay. Great, firm king sized bed too. Recommended.

Wow! Loved it here. The room was huge. Spotlessly clean with a massive bathroom which had a spa bath and separate shower. It is so nice to have a motel room with plenty of space to move around. This motel is situated on a side street from the main road and within 5 minutes walk of the hot springs. Our...

While looking at the accommodation from the street doesn't look promising, it is an amazing place. It is more of a cottage feel but great privacy. And a great personal touch with homemade brownie left for us. Plenty of towels and bedding to use and room was nice and warm. There was also the offer to take towels over to...

Excellent little place, large room with king size bed, kitchenette, shower, spa bath and toilet. It was warm Sue and Gordon are fantastic hosts. Sue even left us baking after servicing the unit. For a weekend away for two it was absolutely great. We are from Hamilton NZ and we highly recommend it.

My wife and I had a night here on the way back from a wedding in Nelson. The welcome from Gordon was warm, friendly and inviting. We were initially a little disappointed with the room - it is a little tired and it doesn't look like much has changed since it was built. It was however spotlessly clean and we...

This is a lovely place to stay as there are only a few rooms. More like a homestay really, we stayed in room 1, lovely view of the garden and very spacious. Very large bathroom and comfortable bed. The owners live in a beautiful home in front of the accommodation. Gordon was very welcoming and Sue had made some lovely...

We stayed for a night on our way over to the west coast. Perfect location for exploring the town and the hot springs. Very homely set up with baked goods and chickens. The bed was amazing especially after sleeping in a tent the night before. Our host welcomed us and left us to enjoy the area. Lovely gardens and private...

Stayed here for the last two nights. Sue is very accomodating. Got to our room and there were fresh eggs laid from the chickens that day and brownies! The room was comfortable and perfect for what we needed. Only a short walk to the town which is perfect. Would definitely stay again!
