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.

Clean, tidy and well presented. End unit had a beautiful view of the valley and a small private seating area. 5 minutes walk to the township. Stunning location. The peace and quite at night time was amazing. Keas came to breakfast early in the morning ( on the outdoor furniture).

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.
