Stayed for one night on the way to Wellington. We were given a warm welcome and shown to our studio room on the ground floor. If we had been staying longer we would have booked a room on the first floor, as our room looked out onto the carpark. The room itself was clean and spacious with a spa bath....

The motel was one of the best properties we visited during our two-week trip across New Zealand. It is located right opposite the beach, a short walk south of the town center. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners who showed us the rooms and offered us a bottle of milk for the coffee of the following morning. They...

We stayed for two nights, shortly after our long trans-ocean flight, at the start of our New Zealand holiday. Had a room on the first (not ground) floor, with lovely view, balcony. Location is superb. Beautifully appointed. Very helpful staff. across the street from the beach walk/bike trail, short walk to restaurants. Art Deco buildings everywhere. Restful, wonderful spot.

We arrived on our Harleys and the host quickly ensured they were parked under cover and out of harms way. The rooms are spacious and well equiped - complete with a spa bath. An acceptable walk into the town cwntre, and handy to all attractions. Highly recommended

We stay at this Motel every year for the Mission Concert. Every time the motel is absolutely spotless. The owners are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them to organise. We think this is the best accommodation of its type we have used in NZ and will continue to do so. Well done to John and Lenis.
