      Busy road, but clean room”

      Rooms need a revamp, though it was clean. Motel is based on the main road which was closed overnight from 9pm to 7am so assuming it would be noisy throughout the night if it wasn’t closed. Rooms are clean, bed was a very small queen, and uncomfortable.

      Don’t be early ”

      Unfortunately all a bit too hard for this owner. If you’re arriving early by train or bus I wouldn’t recommend. Very frosty reception, even to drop off bags

      Fabulous stay”

      Upon arrival the owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a welcoming one. They picked us up and dropped us off at the bus stop. They also drove us around to see places we couldn’t reach by foot. The room was spacious, warm and quiet. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to restaurants and whale watching.

      No hospitality here ”

      I arrived by bus about 10am. It was winter & raining hard. I trudged up the hill 10 minutes to the motel, dragging my luggage, I was cold & wet. He said check-in wasn't until 2pm, despite 10am check-out and prior tenants having already left, and the motel vacancy light on. He knew I didn't have a car and when I asked if he was going to send me back out into the rain, he said "yes". Altho he might have a room available "oneish". “It just isn't possible to have a room ready in less than 3 hours". When your motel is obviously not full & you are unwilling to entertain the possibility of cleaning a room in 30 minutes, and are so inflexible that you send cold wet guests back out in the rain, you know you won't receive hospitality here. You wouldn’t think he’d do that to a 70 year old, like me. So back out in the rain I walked down to town, as there is nothing near the motel. The room was clean & spacious but considerably overpriced. WiFi worked well. This was a very negative experience.

      Bad night sleep”

      We were put into a room right by State Highway 1, insulation can't be that great because road noise was very loud, too loud to be able to sleep. The lady very kindly moved us to a room at the back of the motel however we were then right next to some sort of heater/generator which made a very loud humming noise every 5 minutes all through the night. Nice place and great location but for the money we spent we expected a good night sleep and were disappointed.

      The room had the smell and the woman owner was not nice, the bed was too soft, I think that it is the worst motel when I had a long holiday in New Zealand.
