Spotlessly clean. Super comfy bed. Good wifi. Quick walk to Westfield shopping centre for shopping/movies and short walk to the local ale house for dinner. Very helpful manager who also took us to the train in the morning.

Well presented motel which was spotlessly clean. Nice outdoor deck to catch the afternoon sun. Very friendly manager. Perfect location if you are going on the Tranz Alpine Train. Complementary lift to the station.
