We stayed here for three separate nights during our stay, on arriving, before departing and one other as its a perfect location for this. Site is quite small and has good facilities (laundry excellent) - showers work well but not always as clean as they could be (maybe just unfortunate as it was early eve and they are cleaned in...

I was panicking about finding somewhere to stay as well as look after our car for 3 weeks while we were away on holiday. While giving us a lovely little motel unit with a great bed, they also looked after our car free while we were away, arranged for a shuttle to take us to the airport, and picked us...

We booked just a one bedroom chalet, found it to be clean, modern & comfortable. Great price too. Playground on site for the kids and motel units available if you are wanting a bit more space, but the chalet was fine for my hubby & I and our 2 preschoolers :) really friendly staff too!

All staffs are friendly and helpful. This property is very close to the airport and they can pick you up by request with a small service fee (10 NZD). We got a big unit with 3 bedrooms, 2 twin and 1 queen, which serve a group of 6 peoples comfortably. The unit includes living room, private bathroom and kitchen with...

We arrived at 1am and the key was left out with instructions. It's relatively close to the airport, approx $30 day time but $50 after midnight. The room was very clean however no towels were available which we just assumed there would be. The owners are VERY friendly and accommodating. The grounds are well kept, showers & toilets were also...

We had just traveled from Los Angeles to Sydney and from there to Christchurch where we picked up our RV. We were tired, and needed some rest.

I have stayed here before and rang them directly. The lady was very helpful and when I said I had my son she upgraded me to a two room for the same price. The rooms are super clean. A little tired but it's value for money. Close to the airport as well. The bed was very comfortable. On my wish...

Our cabin was small, but clean and had everything we needed. I will not be able to stay for extended periods of time, but for one or two nights this is fine. Was frustrating that there are no bus stops or shops close by.

Hi there and thanks for your feedback. Always appreciated. We note your frustration with the shops a 30 min walk away and the bus stop in Northwood Boulevard a 10 minute walk away. Hopefully as we get more built in this will improve. By car the shops are 3-4 mins away. Regarding your accommodation, we appreciate your feedback on this....

Stayed here at the end of our trip. Close to airport. Friendly and helpful staff. No free wifi. Clean and simple facilities in the campground area. Lounge room area heating wasn't big enough to heat the entire room. Would stay here again at the beginning or end of trip.
