Stayed for one night in January. This motel looks very unassuming from the road but we cannot speak highly enough about the high standard of the rooms and owners. The room was equipped to a great standard, it was very clean and all looked new and made you feel extremely comfortable to be in there. Large sumptuous bed with pristine...

I stayed there with my family on a recent trip to Wanganui. We got very good service at this place. Everything was very clean and neat and we enjoyed our stay very much. It was lovely to see the owner being actively involved in the running of the place.

We stayed in a Superior Studio room. The room was of average size and had a kitchenette. The kitchenette was the best equipped we've encountered on our trip. The management even supplied paper towel. At check-in, the manager gives guests a bowl of goodies. The manager is friendly focused on meeting any need the guests have. The internet is good....

Have stayed here before and will stay here again. Great room. Great location. Great hosts. Nearby to town and restaurants. A smaller complex so no noise and even though it is on the main road it is very quiet.

Lovely people, room was spotless with free bath salts! Little goodie bowl given on arrival was a nice touch. We stayed in a spa suite which was fantastic. Highly recommend, would definitely stay again.

We had a last minute booking and were impressed with the speed at which our booking was managed. We booked online and arrived just over an hour later. The room was great, my daughter appreciated that there were vegan options on the breakfast menu. And she loved the complimentary nibbles.

Very nice, tidy, clean and friendly staff. We stayed for two nights and we would stay here again. Walking distance to town and staff are very helpful. We had a late check in and the staff kept in contact with us in case we were going to be there after the office closed. They would have told us where to...

Probably the best motel we have stayed in throughout our travels in New Zealand and we have travelled extensively. Room was super clean with spa bath and all necessary toiletries including salts for the bath. WIFI worked well and allowed up to 3 devices which is useful. Have stayed in other motels let down by poor wifi. However, comfort apart,...

Even the parking lot. Ronald does a great job of staying on top of everything. and he's a very nice person as well. Great place to...

We stayed at this lovely, cosy motel on our way down the North Island to Wellington because of many great TripAdvisor reviews - they were spot on! We were greeted by the owner Ronald and he couldn't do enough to be helpful, even helping me to reverse the car into the parking space. The units are very well furnished and...
