I thoroughly echo the sentiments of bill_chris58, Shinx, PaulR74_13 and others who say this is the best / one of the best motels they'd stayed in. Apart from the Esplanade Apartments in Queenstown (which I would say is in a different category of accommodation, being a 2-storey townhouse), this was definitely the best motel we stayed in during our 2-week travel last November. Price was reasonable, the units were spacious and having our very own washer and dryer was a real boon! Most motels would just provide a communal coin-operated washer and dryer - we had problems in 1 of the other motels, where another guest hogged the washer and dryer for himself, washing load after load after load, without regard to the "queue" of laundry baskets lined up in front of the machine.
The kitchen was also well equipped and we could just pop over to the New World Supermarket 2 mins' drive down the road to buy groceries to cook up dinner instead of eating out.
Our group of 14 occupied 3 ground-floor units, with a view of the gurgling brook running in front of the units. When we got up in the morning and drew back the sliding doors, it was a lovely sight of ducks scampering on the grass with the brook beyond and the hills above in the background. The lake was just 2 mins' drive down the road.
Hayley and Dwayne were great hosts - we would definitely have liked to stay longer than the 1 nightwe had there!
