This lodging choice worked out great for us. The young owner/manager was so helpful and polite. We were just a few short blocks from a great restaurant, which he recommended. I'll try to remember the restaurant name and update this review! Be sure to ask about Peter's observatory, which is close to the hotel. I wish we had visited Peter!!... More

Small motel right on the main road - maybe 20 rooms total. Very clean inside, large bathroom and a nice couch / sitting area. The parking lot is small and a little tight, but you do get to park right in front of your room. Several places to eat and a grocery store are a 3 minute walk away.

Not much to do in Geraldine but if you are passing through on route to Queenstown this would be the place to stay. Warm, comfortable and clean with big bed and huge bathroom. All the rooms open onto the parking area, i.e. its like a "motel" configuration with all the rooms at ground level and you park outside your door.... More

Drove thru town and spotted this motel... More

Modern, comfortable, warm, quiet, easy walking distance from the town. What more can one ask? Trip advisor says this is too short and I must add at least 107 characters. OK. Modern, comfortable, warm, quiet, easy walking distance from the town. What more can one ask?
