  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Nice, clean, comfortable. And had the choice of 3x laundry to use

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Amenities

Our room didn't resemble the picture at all. No Air Conditioning was a big problem in the heat. Just as well we were busy both nights, and back after dark when it had cooled somewhat, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to sit inside at all. Overall the unit had modern furnishings and was crisp looking. The bathroom however needs to be updated. Even though it was clean, it looked less than ideal. Even painting the room would improve it somewhat.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Spacious and relaxing stay

The owners Carol and Vince were very welcoming, and the large property was in good order. The rooms were in the process of being updated/remodeled. The 2nd level room had not been modified, but was in good condition and clean. There were several laundry stations about the property which were free for guest to use, and plenty of space to hang clothing to dry. The units sit back from the street entrance and quiet. The furniture was comfortable, and the bedding was fine. During the day the room had wonderful airflow throughout, but at night when the breeze laid down I felt the room could have used a fan to circulate the air to make it more comfortable. It was a level walk into Motueka CBD, and took me about 20-25 mins to do so. Townshends was about a 15-20 min. walk to Toad Hall. There are 2 markets, a New World, and a Coutsown at each end of town. There were many choices for dining in the area. The motel had bbq’s available for guests to use, as well as the full assortment of plates, bowls, and cooking utensils in the room. I had a relaxing stay, and was more than comfortable overall for my needs. There is also a nice pool to swim in and enjoy the sunshine.
