Nice accommodation just small and overpriced

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Mar 2023
Lovely welcome on our arrival. However this was probably the smallest accommodation we stayed in on our trip (out of 18) and our 3rd most expensive. Whilst it is lovely and cosy I did feel it was over priced and the kitchen area was tiny.

A tiny house experience in the trees. Great location a short walk to everything and very quiet. The owners are absolutely amazing. So accommodating. My husband hurt his foot and Ken drove us to our next days activity. Small kitchen and lovely porch. Updated lodging with a private feeling. Flowers and bird song abound

Room tip: Pack light. The walk up is a bit much if not

Lovely hosts, great location which was a quick walk to Ferry and i site, stunning room with all of the amenities, beautiful surround, good views, fair price, great communication. I had asked to leave my car parked at the place of accomadation after check out for a day trip to The Hole in the Rock, Otehei Bay and Russel via Ferry, as there was a free park, they were happy to oblige and even called to check I was okay as I hasn't arrived back by 9pm at night to pick up my car.
Also I left some things behind and they had no hassle sending them to my home address for me via post.
Will 100% stay again.
Look no further, this is the place or stay!

We stayed in Cabin 8 for 4 nights over NY. Highly recommend this particular unit if you don’t mind a few stairs as it’s the unit right at the top offering a good view and more privacy. The unit is situated beside a native rimu tree and pohutukawa which were full of tui and other native birds - lovely to wake up to.
The motel is really close to town - only a couple of minutes walk to two supermarkets and all the restaurants and shops.
Bathroom is a bit narrow but overall the cabin was sufficient for two people and had everything we needed for the stay. There is a heat pump to keep the unit cool.
Owners were very friendly and welcoming and happy to offer local advice.
We definitely recommend this motel and would stay here again.

Room tip: Cabin 8 if you don’t mind a few stairs as it’s the unit right at the top offering a good view and more privacy.

Private and quiet cabins which are nice and clean. Very tranquil, could hear native birds singing. Friendly staff, short walk to town and beach, air con in cabins and ceiling fan. Would definitely stay here again.
