Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

While it may not be right in the heart of town, the value for the price and the opportunity to unwind in a peaceful setting more than compensates for the distance. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a budget-friendly getaway.

The standard one bedroom unit was below standard. Leaking electric jug , hair drier cutting out when in use, shower curtain lacking attached curtain hooks, old bedroom light without bulb left on wall and replacement supplied, one double plug not enough for the three appliances in the kitchen without safety fusing ie. multiplug , very little space to wash dishes as bench very small and electric appliances need to be removed prior, no hot and cold water labels on bathroom taps ie. tops of taps missing, shower head too low and non adjustable, stainless steel shower base uneven and not on a level surface ie. Great risk of slipping, scorched panel on wall next to oven, curtain hooks missing from lounge drapes, owners requested payment before service was completed, unit very noisy as next to busy main road with heavy trucks day and night.

Decor rather dated. Surfaces were clean but entire place could do with a deep clean and fresh paint. Bed was comfortable and 3x oil heaters kept us warm. Good location for us, nearby hotel restaurant and supermarket. No staff on site til mid afternoon… could have been an issue as there was a power outage during our stay.

Was okay for the price. Quite noisy being on corner of main room. Was very nice and warm considering the temperature outside. Overall you pay for what you get. It was ideal just for a one night stay for work

We stayed here while on a South Island biking trip. The Unit was clean but needed a decent mattress. The one in place was far to soft and felt like a waterbed and we didn't sleep well. The motel is on a main road and was somewhat noisy well into the night. Price was reasonable. Manager/ owner was friendly. The location was not ideal for us either. Would we stay again?. We'd have to say No.

Room # 21 Room # 21 is situated right by the main 4 x lane road - Noisy Noisy Noisy! Place is and feels dirty. Dust and Fluff everywhere - Look on top of the art works and there is a 5 mm layer of fluffy dust ( yuk ) Whole place requires an upgrade - tried everything - Bed, Sofa, Carpet etc. The WiFi Signal did not work in Room #21 - had to go outside!! Would we return - NO NEVER. Should you book here with confidence = NO Over priced we paid $140 for 1 x night. ( and had just paid just $170 per night at Hilton Queenstown ) NO Comparison!! Not worth more than $60 per night.

I stayed for just one night before a dog show with my dog. Spacious unit, clean and comfortable. Spotless and well kept. Some traffic noise but not disturbing. Recommended and would definitely stay again.

The room looked a little tired and would benefit from a spruce up, but was comfortable and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Bed was good and ample space in the bathroom. Very clean and well supplied with crockery, cutlery, toaster and a full sized stove. Only a short drive into town with Countdown nearby.

Stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment, at first looked a little austere but if you look past that the mote has everything you would want. The furnishings are good quality and comfortable the bed has good linen and an electric blanket. The heating is great and the bathroom large and light thanks to a large skylight. Free Wi-Fi , You Tube and Netflix add to the package. Its close to town but not close enough to walk. The staff are helpful and friendly. The unit was close to the road so we did get a little road noise, but not enough to be uncomfortable. A great place to stay, we were there 4 nights.

Service is first class and unmatched; the highly motivated owners work here themselves. Rooms a bit outdated, but very spacious, warm and all those little extras are perfect. Good quality towels and mattresses, fridge, soap and shampoo,... Noise level can be high due to the proximity to the street, but that's expected in a motel. I would book again here.
