We stayed 2 nights and found the motel while basic, to be comfortable, clean and quiet. The room we had was equiped with a mini kitchenette. Not overly busy at the time we were there. Parking is directly in front of the room. Well located to the Main Street and eateries.

I stayed 2 night and found the motel to be quite nice. It was no frills, the room was clean and comfortable. There were not many guest when i was there but the parking lot may be a tight squeeze when full to capacity.

Always exceptional value for money, spotlessly clean, well appointed and with warm, friendly hosts. Super comfortable beds and having the rooms ready and warmed for our arrival is a great touch and really appreciated. A regular stop on our annual ski road trip south. Thank you for always taking great care of us. See you next year.

Spent three nights there and we loved it. very close to shopping and easy walking, only five minutes or less. The manager was very good to us, he tried to get us cheap helicopter trips but could not. there was not much traffic as to the virus. But we loved the town worth visiting and spending time there.

42 of us stayed at this motel complex last weekend for our Labour Weekend Field trip. Everyone was completely blown away with the reception and the friendliness of the staff. Mark and Anthony are amazing - so full of knowledge of the area and it's history. The units are spotlessly clean and the beds super comfy. Lots of room to spread out a bit too. Very good locations - walking distance to restaurants and shop and also a good place to start exploring the locality and beyond. Great value for money.

We stayed at this property over the long Easter weekend and we found it not lacking in anything. The staff were great. The room was large enough to accommodate a small table and chairs with a huge bathroom. One street off the Main Rd which was perfect. Lovely and quiet. Great Bed. Excellent sleep. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Off street parking.

We stayed in a Standard King Studio on a one night stopover on our way through the Haast. The room was modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Check-in was prompt and efficient. The motel is close to a number of good restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and there was no noise from other units. We thought the price of $90.00 was very reasonable.

Very tidy and clean motel unit. Good value for money. Friendly staff. There's a great restaurant about 60 metres walk away called Alice Mays. Everything in the village is only 5 minutes walk away though. Its tiny and peaceful bar the helicopters. We'll be back this way again and this is where I'll be booking next time for accommodation.
