We found the hotel late in the day when the hotel we'd booked wasn't satisfactory. Our host was extremely helpful at such a late hour and couldn't do enough to welcome us to the establishment, as it was very wintry and wet/snowing we were happy to find such a place that was warm, no, hot in the rooms and at a very reasonable price. After settling in it was only a very short walk to the centre of town for our evening meal, the lake was just as close so the location is first class.

Room Tip: We had a two bed apartment (no 17 or 18) overlooking a park. Very quiet and it's own parking right outside the door.

Big and spacious ground floor 3 room apartment, furniture were abit run down. Didn’t know that the hot water will stop after certain amount used, and will only have it again after 3 hours. Not too far away from the Centre.

Thanks for staying with us in our two bedrromed apartment and we are glad you found the location handy to town and all the ammenities. These units have their own water cylinders and once the hot water in them has been exhausted they have to refill and heat up, but they are normally plentiful for the rooms.

Kind regards
Mary Climo - Manager

We stayed here for 3 nights with our two young children in an upstairs one bedroom unit and it was great. The motel doesn’t look much from the outside but inside the units are modern and spacious, clean, and very importantly to us; were really warm during our winter visit. The bedding is lovely and comfortable and was great to have a bath (under shower) for the little ones. The owner was really helpful with suggestions on what to see/do, local restaurants and updates on the Milford Rd conditions. Would definitely stay here again

We enjoyed our stay here so much. It was so welcome after hiking for 5 days. The room was spacious & had everything you need. The staff were very helpful & accommodating. 5min walk to centre of town & incredibly quiet. Definitely recommend.

Very happy with our stay here. Milk on arrival was a nice touch and we were upgraded to a bigger room because we were staying two nights. Large spacious room, small bathroom but sufficient, and handy having a small kitchenette. Walking distance to Main Street which was helpful.
