A smart,clean motel with very well maintained facilities.Host Claire was most helpful.Nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed our time here,booking an extra night to unwind.We had an upstairs room with a pleasant view on to a side road. Handy Handy location for takeaways nearby and short walk to shops and fascinating museum.

We had an overnight stay on our way to Wanaka. Our unit had a double spa, a kitchen, and very comfy bed. This is a nice place to stay, the room was very clean, it's on the main road but very quite. The night and store is just across the road. We will stay there again. Lorna and Phil

We booked a studio unit for one night and were very impressed with the size of the unit, the fabulous shower and the quietness, given the complex is on a main highway. The only negative we could think of is the 'tight' parking when the complex is full. If we need a motel in the area again we will be...

I have stayed here twice in the last couple of months and would stay again without a thought. It is comfortable, clean, the owners are welcoming and my room, 2, was just right. Town is just down the road and there are cafes and take aways and easy walk from the motel.

Our team had a couple of very cosy nights here recently. The rooms were spotless, serviced daily, and the beds very comfortable. The owner even obliged with a group photo before we left! Great value and highly recommended.

Our room seemed welcoming and clean which catered for most the requirements of a motel. However, we found it frustrating to only have one mirror in the bathroom. As we were two woman staying for 2 nights during a School Reunion we would have preferred to see another mirror either on the living area wall, or inside the wardrobe door.This...

Stayed 3 nights on business trip. Nice large rooms very clean, with a large spa bath. Sky TV and helpful friendly folk running the place. Also very quiet although its on the main road. Didn't hear any significant traffic noise . The building is solid so you cant hear your neighbors either. Will certainly stay there again.

The Phoenix is very comfortable and clean with decent size rooms. Showing a little bit of wear and tear but not much really. I had a (prearranged) very late arrival and it was no problem to have the room left unlocked for me which was very convenient. Didn't see that much of the owners but they were friendly. Looked like...

A great little motel, the rooms are clean, look new and spacious. On checking in we were given great advice on places in town to eat. There is also a small shop on the opposite corner if you wanted more milk etc. The only minor problem is that to go to the town centre you have to cross over the...

We stayed at the Phoniex Motel for one night, the motel was lovely, very clean, great location and the room was really well equipped. The owners were really helpful, they assisted us with an issue with the booking and helped us resolve it immediately. After we left we realised we had left a phone charger and a baby's towel, they...
