It is a nice place to stay. Rooms are very good and tidy. Up on hill over looking railway station and great view of town. Staff service was fantastic trying to help us get back to Christchurch, due to train cancelled by level 2 covid.

Murray offered to collect us from the train station and then gave us lots of invaluable info about the local places of interest.There was lots of coffee, tea and fresh milk,replaced daily .All furniture and fittings worked well apart from the kettle which was immediately replaced with a new one and a with a smile! Excellently located for shops, station and cafes Good value for money. Highly recommended

The motel is just a short walk(or in our case bike ride) from the train station. The rooms are clean, efficient and very comfortable. We stayed here at the beginning and end of our cycle trip on the West Coast Wilderness trail. You can leave directly from the hotel and be on the trail in a few minutes. We had a room on the backside - no view- but it was quiet and an easy place to sort our bikes etc. The hosts are very welcoming and ready to answer questions and help you get what you need. We came back at the end of our trail ride because it worked so well.
