Awesome value and high- pressure shower!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Dec 2023via mobile
This was a casual stop on a road trip. The value was very good and the proprietor friendly and helpful. It was a standard room but the shower was very powerful. Sounds a minor point, but after a days driving a real bonus.
The location opposite McD’s and a petrol station was also awesome.

Well above average for a Motel. High standards. Excellent 10/10. Hosts Sue and John have nailed it. Spotless and not just in the Motel but the grounds, plants and surroundings are clean and tidy. No cobwebs here. I really liked the addition of lotions and creams available at the front desk. We've traveled a lot and stayed in many Motels but this would surpass any other we have stayed in. Coffee sachets (organic) provided were amazing and there was no problem in asking for more. Service, hospitality, amenities, locality and friendliness were homely and professional. Couldn't fault this lovely accommodation. Thanks Sue and John.

This was a really lovely motor lodge. It helped that it is reasonably new. The room was spacious with a well equipped kitchenette and bathroom. Hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, tissues ... were all provided and in reusable containers. Milk was supplied in an eco-friendly glass bottle. The hosts were welcoming and showed us to our room! There was an informative Guest Information folder which gave details of restaurants, etc. We were particularly pleased to see that the teas, coffees and biscuits were all NZ brands. There was plenty of off street parking right outside the rooms. Highly recommend this motor lodge.

Clean, comfortable, quiet location, at the north end of Dannevirke, a short walk down to the town's eating establishments, plenty of parking outside the units, friendly hosts who take an interest in their clients, a pleasant stay.

One of the best motels I've stayed in. Very clean, modern facilities, with parking right outside the unit. Friendly welcome. On main road (easy to find) but couldn't hear any road noise during the evening/night.

Book directly wth motel, to get best deal.
