The beds were comfortable. New carpet. Close to town. Good heating for mid Autumn.
The Motel is old and shows it age. The spa pools were old and the water was yellow. The jug leaked. The hot water was too hot. The steps going to the upstairs landing were dangerous and old.
The mineral spa bath was fantastic - private and great housed behind the room in a separate space completely covered in (we lounged in it for 4 hours!). The decor of the room was older style but simple, fresh and very clean. The motelier and his wife were different and very friendly. We originally booked one night and enjoyed it so much we checked in again on the way home and were surprised to see a completely new bed cover which is reassuring. We are going to make it a regular stop for us. It snowed on our last day and was so nice to see the motelier out speaking with the guests and enjoying the snow. I think the best thing about this motel is the good old kiwi hospitality. It is not flash, not pretentious. It is relaxing and comfortable. Loved it.
The only thing I didn't like was leaving.
