Expedia clients beware!
After 3 weeks of travel around the South Island it was a shock to be placed in a sub standard room. Room 14 to be precise. The first in all the places we had stayed which was very sub standard to the Qual Mark rating. It was so small and cramped we had to take turns to move around the bed...... and we are not big people! Bathroom was fine. After viewing the room I asked if we could switch rooms. I understood from the owner/manager I had chosen my room from the web? I was confused as this didn't make sense. After further discussion, it became apparent he didn't understand how web bookings were done, and he actually admitted this to me. Or it was a lot of flannel to try and put me off requesting a switch. His choice for Expedia clients was this room, given I guess maybe correctly /or incorrectly the cost he pays Expedia. I don't know. I viewed other rooms which were comfortable and in substantially better condition and lay out. Our bags were on the floor which we had to walk over . One swivel chair only, and bed with one bedside cabinet. No bedside light. No room for anything else. Given one night would have been bad enough but we unfortunately were there for 2. We had paid, otherwise I would have sought other accommodation. The Room was not serviced the next day although the Manager was asked at 1pm if it could be. We arrived back at 7.00pm still not serviced. A shame to end our holiday this way.

Great motel but not the best cost benefit.
Bom mas caro pelo que oferece, por um preço melhor fiquei em melhores moteis, inclusive em Blenheim. O atendimento do recepcionista é péssimo, não falou nenhuma palavra na chegada, quando pedimos a senha de internet nos deixou esperando 10 minutos porque estava no telefone. Internet são só 500mb por dia e não tem a opção de pagar por mais, acabou, acabou! Good but not the best for this price. We have stayed in better motels for less, including in Blenheim. They just give you 500mb of internet per day and you dont even have the option to pay for more. No chocolate powder as all other motels. No air conditioner. The receptionist does not have any sympathy, he did not say anything in any moment that we had contact. It is a good place and you can stay for days, I'm only punctuating this because the price charged is higher than other places that have these benefits.

Clean and well sited property with plenty of space with the added bonus of a pool on those hot days to cool off in. It is those hot days that cause the only real problem with the property. It was a 32c degree day when I was there and with no air-conditioning in the rooms it was very hot inside. Even when the outside temperature had dropped to 20c degrees at midnight the room was still at 26c degrees. Would have no problem recommending the property but check the first.

It's a motel...
Perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable but nothing exceptional. Bit of a mixup regarding receipt of pre-payment spoiled check-in but soon resolved. Laundry facilities cost extra ($NZD 4 for washer or dryer) and had to ask for room to be unlocked. 20 minute walk into town.

Unexpected trip
Lovely clean motel in perfect position, close to a supermarket and restaurant and a 20 to 30 minute walk into town. We checked in late but the host had our room ready and had sent me a txt with my room number, which I didnt check but he was very polite when I disturbed him after hours.
