    Very convenient & comfortable with great value 🎖

    Loved the unit, great for a family of 4, could see the southern alps from the kids room window. Good size. The only thing was kitchen table is a little wobbly (told the owner) & the shower cubicle was snug 😔 Well priced, honestly best motel we have stayed in for a long time.

    I stayed in a duplex apartment - downstairs a small kitchen, shower room & sitting area, and upstairs a comfortable bed, plus a small outside balcony. Good shower, but it was in a very tight space. Quiet & efficient aircon. Friendly welcome from the owner.

    Everything I could need was there, including a park. Staff were very kind and helpful. The room was a decent size for a studio and the bed very comfortable.

    Mr. Happy first night in New Zealand

    It was what I expected, simple and clean. The room was a good size to house the two single beds, which were comfortable. Big clean shower room. The staff were polite and helpful. Located on a busy road, so some traffic noise.
