          Stayed here overnight while visiting the glowworm caves. The operator was very helpful and friendly when we checked in. The room was basic, but did have a kitchenette stocked with tea, etc. and even some fresh milk. Bathroom was clean, but not fancy.

          Comfortable room, however dated decor. Very pleasant and informative hostess. Windows opened onto garden. Some noise from nearby road, but tolerable. Parking outside door. Good kitchen facilities. Further away from attractions than most other motels, but that didn't concern us.
