Score from 274 reviews Very good
Nice clean motel. Staff was nice, he even give a free upgrade to bigger room.
Locations was handy
Room smelled of something cooked previously.
Great location and very reasonably priced. As we only had a studio it was lovely to be able to access the on site spa.
A very nice large, clean comfortable room. Easy 2-3 minute walk into the village.
The site is quite cramped and parking within it difficult for some of the rooms. However, it is easy to park just off-site. The rooms overlook the car park and the back of buildings.
Very good facilities in lounge & bed. Kitchen was OK.
Nothing particularly - it was fine.
No proper wardrobe.
Location was great, room was immaculate, and the staff went that extra mile for us. Highly recommended.
Location to mountains. Staff extremely helpful, it rained the whole time we were there and unable to see Fox Glacier due to flooding. Negotiated leaving earlier without a problem. Many Thanks
Facilities very basic.
Very comfy and spacious, also very clean although the bathroom cleaning could have been more thorough. The wifi though was pretty bad. All in all a good place to stay.
Horrible wifi, bathrooms could have been cleaned better.
Central location. Mountain view. Clean and relatively spacious. Use of DVD useful in bad weather.
wifi a bit intermittent.
Cooking rings Hot shower
Walking distance to nearby shops and restaurants.
Motel flooring is wooden and squeaky everywhere. Fixed showerhead made it difficult to shower the under and lower areas.
Proximity to town
Wifi very weak, kept dropping. Incredibly tight parking. Limited hot water. Small overpriced room. Constant mutter of helicopters.
the staff was nice and helpful -- and it was a quick walk to shops and restaurants.
no problems. It's not fancy -- just a basic motel -- but it was fine as a base.
Very warm and comfortable. Close to great restaurants.
Facilities as required
Comfortable room Free parking and wifi Good furnishings
Nice large room modern good facilities
Not enough shelving the bathroom for personal toiletries
Excellent facilities and very helpful and informative staff
Located close to town shops, cafes etc. Clean and tidy just a little old fashion. Good size room with massive bed, single bed & a sofa couch. Plenty of free parking.
The bed was way to hard and uncomfortable. Thin walls so could hear the neighbours children and TV. Shower difficult to find good temperature for children. No curtains in bathrooms for privacy.
Room was spacious and very comfortable. Well equipped with unlimited Wi-Fi, Sky TV, fridge, room heaters, microwave, hob and complimentary milk. Double bed was huge and very comfortable. Would book again.
There was no bath, just a shower. I would have personally liked a bath, but that is purely personal preference and should not be a deciding factor.
Warm welcome from staff and prompt response to queries. Comfortable and close to amenities.
Wifi a bit slow at times
Central position, although the town is tiny so nothing is too far away. Room warm and comfortable with plenty of space for a couple of nights. Staff helpful, gave a discount on one of the many helicopter flights you can take.
