Stayed here during a conference in one of the studio rooms. It does everything you need from a motel really. Two heaters in the room ensured winter didn't bite hard inside, new smart TV was nice, but best of all, the owners recently purchased new mattresses and pillows. And I've gotta say, the best pillows and mattress I've ever had the pleasure of sleeping on. They put some 5 Star places to shame. The kitchenette was well fitted out, and the motel's an easy walk to town too. To cap it off, the owners were just lovely too and really rounded out the whole package. Great price, really well furnished, friendly service. I'll be coming back.

Despite it is a 3 star plus motel, but service is excellent. Nice young couple were at the reception until 12 pm. Nice comfortable bed and great location. They put the towel on our car window at night to prevent it from frozen screen which is very thoughtful.

We stay here every time we come to wanaka and recently taken over by new owners. A lovely young couple who go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable. We came out this morning to find they had covered our car windscreen from the morning frost, that's exceptional service, well done and thank you

While this might have been a one-off happening, the room smelled so bad, and it looked so in need of upgrading (the bedspread had holes in it), that we actually left without staying and forfeited our pre-payment. The owners denied that there was a small when we complained in writing, but why would we give up our payment if there wasn't something pretty wrong? To the owners: please have a careful look at your units and put some money into improvements.

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid April and found this property really good choice. We had unit #10, I believe, which was a Chalet Studio. Nicely equipped, clean kitchen; small living area with chairs only, but comfortable and perfect for us, plus it has a small fireplace which was very cozy in the evenings; comfortable beds; small patio with table and chairs to relax outside and a small bathroom that could use an upgrade, even though it was clean and functional. Very pleasant and helpful owners/ staff, very clean and well maintained property. We also liked their laundry facilities - small, but functional, they even have drying clothes racks that you have in your chalet and can take extra from the laundry room if that’s not enough. Property is located within a short walking
