What a fabulous place! Superb host who was sooooo friendly! Water pressure was amazing in shower & cleanest place we have stayed! Was freezing outside with snow on the mountains but ultra toasty warm inside. 100% would not hesitate to stay again. Great restaurant options close by.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night on our way back to Nelson. When we checked in I was met by Stacy and warmly welcomed. She said if there is anything you need just let me know. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment and wow it was an awesome place to stay. The king bed was great. It was a roomy 1 bedroom apartment.

Standard but comfortable motel. The room was bigger than expected and only five minutes away from a local grocery store and restaurant. Very helpful staff. We would have liked to spend more time here but needed to leave early the next day.

This is a small motel in a small city. With seven of us we took up 4 rooms which seemed like half the motel but in truth there were quite a few rooms tucked away in the middle of this motor court. The truly unique thing about this property was the manager and her assistant. They were beyond helpful providing insight, recommendations and, most importantly. umbrellas. Although this is a small property by living on site they seemed omnipresent which was a good thing. As advertised the rooms were large with small kitchenettes. The bathrooms were adequate, the bed cozy. The sliding glass door entry seemed a bit odd at first but it was functional. A chair outside the room allowed you to enjoy your neighbors if you chose. We were only there for two nights. I wish it had been more. After staying at big city hotels in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, this was a nice, relaxing change of pace with a welcoming staff to boot.

Clean and comfortable lodging operated by friendly hosts. The room's 24” TV screen was a little small for watching videos on a rainy day and the mattress was too soft for me, but it's in a quiet location that offers a short walk to downtown restaurants and attractions. The friendly host gave good touring information, but the wifi was spotty even after her assistance. The motel has a washer and dryer. Enjoy the beautiful snow capped mountain views (on a clear day) from outside.
