A good place to rest before heading to Greymouth
Friendly staff, the restaurant and value for money
We arrived quite late in the hotel there was only one staff working the for the reception and their busy restaurant, still I got a lovely welcome from her. I also ordered some food from the restaurant it was a huge portion of food with fresh salad and it taste delicious.

Beside the main road.
Clean, good restaurant, helpful.
During our 3 day stay I think everyone in South Island drove past my bedroom. I was the nearest room to the road and it was fully booked. I would assume other rooms were farther away and quieter.

Great staff who are ready to help always
Great staff from reception to housekeeping.
Nice clean place not far from Richmond and Nelson City. A few small issues: i) the hot water tank keeps making creaking noises, ii)the large bathroom can do with a few more wall hangers iii) kitchen not fully equipped for cooking

Great staff who are ready to help
Staff who tried their best to accommodate to our various needs
agoda website does not provide the flexibility to indicate additional children staying with parents - this need to be fixed. some hotels/motels charge a small fee for each child and are happy to accommodate a small family. this motel, though slightly out of town, is run by staff who are really guest and service-oriented. whatever shortcomings (like lack of full kitchen) are easily overcome by the great staff who are friendly and always ready to help.

out of town but all you need
clean, friendly, cheaper
although it is situated out of town, it is only a 5 minutes drive to richmond, and for the price we paid it was really worth it. the rooms are clean and tidy although they do not give a sense of luxury, but there is all one needs, and people are friendly.

Basic motel next to a main highway
Has a bar and restaurant on site
This motel is suituated next to a busy highway which can be heard in the rooms. The rooms were clean but tired and ready for refurbishment. As a bonus the staff were very friendly and helpful
