CB, nz1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic service, perfect for breaking the drive.
We were more than happy with this motel, it is well maintained, spotless and the rooms are basic but very spacious with a little kitchen area, credit most of all goes to the amazing motel staff. Jill and her team helped us when our car broke down, tried a jump start then let us make numerous calls to the hire car agent and AA, and gave us a cuppa even though we’d checked out. The way they handled a stressful situation and waited till we were finally on the road again left us feeling better and even smiling. Thank you Jill and co;

Very large, clean and comfortable
Very large room that was perfectly cleaned. The bathroom was huge and the water pressure was amazing. The kitchenette was well equip. There was a very nice sitting area in the room with a sofa and two chairs. Generally a very nice room that provided an excellent nights sleep and had everything needed. There is a restaurant on site as well as a bottle shop to grab a bottle of wine, beer or other beverages. It was a quick drive to the historic part of town. I would happily stay in the Northstar again. I would happily stay at the Northstar again.
