          We chose this Motel as it is a 5 minute walk to the railway station with a frequent direct service into Wellington, by far the easiest way to get to the stadium there. (learnt from previous experience!) As such this is a really excellent place to stay. Otherwise only medium to fair - all a little "tired". But to be fair the middle of winter in a summer season resort! Friendly staff and good service. And a good base for local activities overall.

          Wonderful place to stay with lovely owners.”

          Customer service was great

          We had a lovely stay but would have loved to have stayed longer if time permitted. We found the owner to be a very helpful and cheerful person.
