A hidden gem

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Oct 2020
On a campervan trip around the top of the South Island, we fluked upon this hidden gem . It is off the main highway so is easy to miss but it is a superb little motor camp. We were warmly welcomed, It is secluded, quiet, has well kept grounds, and lovely scenery around it. There is a range of accommodation types available, and the kitchen, laundry, and toilet facilities are clean and well stocked (my daughter tells me that the ladies’ toilets are the best she has seen; the men’s shower room had lovely fluffy towels and plenty of very hot water). Kids loved the animals and birds wandering around, the trampoline, and the extensive avIaries with a range of brightly coloured occupants. We decided to make this our base for next year’s trip in this area.

    One of the best nights sleep I’ve ever had in motel. Quiet(away from main road), clean and so friendly. Newly renovated and well thought out refit. Stayed 2 nights and used it as a base to ski at Mt Lyford. Kids loved to visit the horse and donkey.

    We stayed in a campervan with 3 young kids and the place was welcoming and tidy. However the next morning our kids were able to visit the birds, pat a horse and feed some lambs and for them it was one of the highlights of the whole trip. The owners did not have to go out of their way for a group just "stopping in" but they did and it was very much appreciated.

    We were on the road from Christchurch to Blenheim, and decided we would stay the night in Cheviot, after a trying and exhausting day. Found the motel, and what a gem. Friendly manager, spotlessly clean motel unit with everything we could need, including a comfy sofa outside in the afternoon sun to sit and drink our coffee on, while watching the donkey grazing. Lovely gardens. Loved the fact that they provided a little book for guests to write comments in, and all were very favourable. Definitely a motel to go back to if we are in the area again.

    Looking for somewhere for my last night before flying from ChCh I stumbled upon the Cheviot motel and holiday park and rented a great little cabin. Sunny afternoon, peaceful, off the highway so it felt like you're out in the country. I had two swims in the pool and walked to the pub for dinner. The park owners are lovely people, it was nice to see the old dog, cats and a donkey wandering around. There were pears, nectarines and grapes for the picking, and a big aviary full of all kinds of birds. Plus horses to pat. The cabin had all I needed, short walk to the bathroom. About an hour an a half to the airport.
