Thank you for your kind review. We believe that a comfortable bed is probably the most important feature to get our guests to return and we have done a lot of work in this area over the last few years.

We stayed for one night. Owner was very helpful in providing tourist information and lots of ice cubes for our drinks. Rooms were very clean. There are lots of restaurants nearby and we recommend a tour of the gold mine area.

Thank you for your review. We are happy to provide ice to our guests and all rooms have an ice tray to freeze more in the room fridge. I hope you got lucky and panned some real gold as several of our guests in the past have done.

Whilst travelling NZ we enjoyed our stay here. Attention to detail is displayed when they offer a cover for your windscreen if frosty or towels for the aquatic centre across the road Very friendly and our room was very comfortable

Thank you for your review. We have had a few good frosts this winter and quite a few of our guests have used our windscreen covers to ensure a safe clear screen start to their day. Pool towels are also popular so as not have that chlorine smell in your bath towels.

Very friendly welcome and service throughout. Excellent location and facilities. Nice and warm during a cold week. Sky sports a bonus! Just wish shower was a little more powerful.....(but that's me just nitpicking). All in all highly recommended.

We had a great experience following a minor hiccup with the booking, which Tony went out of his way to sort out at a very busy time in Cromwell. The motels were all full as a result of a national vintage motorbike rally, but he looked after us very well. There were six of us in our group and the...
