Excellent and Spotless for a Motel.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Nov 2019via mobile
One of the best Motels I’ve stayed in. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Rooms were clean and spacious. Toilet was spotless. About 5 minutes from the town center and good views of the mountains from the road. Additional plus point is that it’s a 3 Minute Drive to Lake Matheson. Perfect if you want to visit the lake early in the morning.
The only negative maybe the receptionist could be a bit more enthusiastic while welcoming guests :).

We booked for a one bedroom apartment. We arrived and were welcomed coldly by a guy who looks like who just woke up or probably hates his job. Was not a good start and thinking this might affect the review that I am going to give them, as customer service is very important to me when I travel.
However, ignoring that kind of behavior, as we entered the apartment, checked everything, I thought they deserved 4stars as it is clean, spacious and the bathroom is immaculate.
Kitchen utensils are complete and the view of the mountains in front of the apartment is exceptional . It is also 5 minutes drive from Lake Matheson, very convenient for someone like me who wants to catch the early sunrise of the lake.
Over all experience is great. Never really had the chance to meet the owner.
Probably a little bit of training with the staff about good customer service and enthusiasm in serving the customers.
Anyway, good job with the cleanliness of the room. Would have been given 5 stars but the customer service is a minus.

Clean, roomy, very friendly staff, good beds, comfortable, but best of all the location. Great view of the mountains from our back door. Close to Lake Matheson. Some of the best photos I got in the area were from the road near the motel.

Downside: the wifi was useless.

This accommodation is very clean comfortable affordable. Forget the overpriced accommodation in the main street. Better views of the mountains from this site. If your budgeting then buy food from local food mart and cook in room. Guest laundry is avail and cheap too. Pony and sheep for kids petting. Great place to stay!

Room tip: Units 1 & 2 have brilliant views of Mt Cook and the mountains!

Good location and close to everything.

Beautiful bathroom and plenty of room in the bedroom area.

Plenty of parking too

Kitchen facilities had fridge and yummy milo, tea etc :)

Room Was pretty cold and the small heater took a while to get any heat into the room.

Shower was great, but hot water only lasted a short while. Unfortunately we didn’t realise this and I showered after my friend and there was only a couple mins warm water left 👎
