I had a studio unit, which was nothing but outstanding. It was super clean and tidy and had all the essential things required for my stay. The bed was really comfy. The check-in and check-out was super friendly and Mark and Anne could not have been better hosts. I've stayed previously and this visit did not disappoint. I would recommend to others that this is a gem of a motel to stay at.

Anne & Mark, we thank you 😊 - From the start over the phone you are friendly & easy to speak with. - Large Group booking 15 rooms handled with ease. - Comms with you are always clear and flexible when changes were needed. - Goes the Extra mile with a smile. - The type of farewell that makes you want to stay another night and yes even in Tokoroa so yes because of Anne & Mark they have “changed my opinion and many others in our whānau.” We thank you. 😊

I paid for a small room with a microwave, and a bathroom. It had a comfortable bed, and there was even a comfortable armchair to sit and read in. That was a very nice touch. I also got a few amusing free things thrown in, as below. There is no sink... and therefore, no dishes to do. It is the only motel I have ever stayed in where you simply pile the dishes up, the staff come in the morning and take them away, and issue you some clean ones. The no smoking sign shows a picture of the owner's Nefarious Feline, and is captioned: "Please do not leave your butts outside. Lucy will steal them, and we are trying to get her to quit." She doesn't like her owners very much, she only likes the guests. As I left, the windows were being water-blasted clean, and Lucy was voicing her Extreme Displeasure. At the back of the compendium is a list of peculiar facts to while away twenty minutes or so. I didn't check out the telly as I had my kindle to read, but it was an Apple and looked very up-to-date. It's a good stopover when you are crossing the island, and I'd definitely consider staying there again.

Hi there, thank you so much for this lovely feedback. We do try to make our guests comfortable when they stay. As far as that brat cat Lucy goes... No, she is one of our greatest assets. See you next time you are passing through.

We stay every time we have something on in the area and reccomend them to everyone. Nearly everyone in our family has stayed here now and we wouldn't go anywhere else. Amazing service, always clean and immaculately presented rooms. We've tried all the different types of rooms they have between us and all of them are excellent value. The owners are lovely and helpful when checking in and out. The cherry on top is Lucy the gorgeous cat that lives on the property, a visit from her makes any stay.
