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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent Motel, clean, good room size, a few minutes walk to the lake. Modern motel, good parking, easy and quick to register at reception. Good bed slept well. We were two couples using a two bedroom apartment. Highly recommend.

Great motel. BIG living area and bedrooms, perfect for families. Very clean and tidy, lovely assistant manager. Close to town and Doc centre on a lovely quiet street. We booked at the last minute, and the manager was really helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Only stayed for 1 night but it was good value for money. Had a pleasant chat at checkin and was given some good food recommendations. Had # bedrooms and the beds were actually very comfortable along with the bedding. The rooms got cold at night but the beds had heat warmers and there was a heater in the room so it got toasty quickly. Bathroom had everything you needed and even a separate area for the toilet which I think is a bonus! The hotel is a 10 min walk from the town but we drove as parking is free everywhere anyway. The rooms must have been well insulated as I didn’t hear much from outside when we were in the room. Lots of parking for everyone. Would stay again.

The staff here was excellent. They helped us find a last minute booking to Milford. They also helped with laundry since they had the machines tied up. They serviced the room daily and cleaned the dishes, refreshed bath towels and general clean up. Nice spacious room compared to our last stay. Had cooktop & microwave and hot water kettle with fridge too. Mattress ok -a little bouncy for someone that tosses a lot. Would definitely recommend

Lots of similar looking motels in the area. Picking this one turned out pretty well. Polite service and useful local tips about where to eat. And even the best route to take driving further south. A quiet stay with no problems and a decent night's sleep.

Mark and Mel were very pleasant and helpful in every way. The room, although a studio unit, was clean and comfortable. Towels were soft and clean. We had healthy exercise - just a short walk down to the lakefront! I would recommend staying here anytime. richardpar
