Just a quick note to say thank you for your friendly hospitality during our stay. We found your motel to be very spacious, clean and homely. The gardens were absolutely lovely as well. And all at such a reasonable price!

Mailene Tubman, Auckland

Garden so beautiful. Quiet tranquil situation. Unit refurbished and as usual very clean and spacious. Their service has always been first class and we feel very welcome and satisfied, so keep returning. A gracious motel with thoughtful hosts.

Bill & Ngaire Morgan, Nelson

Amazing stay Spacious room, beautiful yard, very nice and friendly family…and convenient to drive from the airport.

Jie, CN

A comfortable, relaxing place to stay with a simple drive into town; highly recommended. Amanda and Gary treat you like friends rather than guests and couldn’t be more helpful. It is a joy to be based around the garden, and the rooms are comfy, spotless and extremely well equipped. We even had a full cooker […]

The motel was the most comfortable, quiet, friendly place we have ever stayed. We travel a lot in NSW and we have never been so well treated.

Comfy, cosy and very nice hosts Amanda and her husband are extremely nice and caring hosts. They have given me a lot of precious travelling advises and tips for places to go. The studio is very well equipped and decorated with much love for details. Very quiet and comfort stay.

One of the best places to stay in Christchurch.Very good overall. Very good service. Very quiet for a motel on a major road.

Enjoyable stay made even better by motel owners in that they put heater on for us each evening and on return from Indoor Bowls tournament we entered lovely warm rooms. Breakfast was lovely and found owners very informative to fill in our free day. Good suggestion not to have fresh towels every day ( if […]

Amanda the owner was very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the unit was perfect for me. Beautiful garden setting and the bed was very comfy.

Jackie, NZ

An oasis behind a nonplus facade Don’t judge by it’s street appeal, or main road location. This place is an oasis, great place for those with young kids needing some safe space to run around. Close to town, great room with all you need, and very friendly owners who have great recommendations and knowledge.

Iain, Australia

Terrific place to stay One of the best motels I stayed during this trip. The kitchen is a fully functioned one. I mean really really good. All kinds of tools, full set of knives, various kinds of culinary tools. They even have a Korean hot pot! I love the garden, my 6 yr old got […]

Xiaoli, CN

DEFINITELY worth a visit and so handy for the airport Perfect! We travelled the length & breadth of NZ. We had the warmest welcome, with fresh roses in our room, the heater put on to ensure an even warmer welcome and chocolates! A well equipped unit and scrupulously clean with the most beautiful rose garden. […]
