Nice clean motel. We enjoyed our larger ground floor room with separate bedroom and made use of the sunny patio outside. Also the kitchen was well stocked with appropriate utensils.
Although we had read reviews that noticed the road noise, we didn't have a problem with this when the windows were closed, and there was a great heat pump/air conditioning unit in our room.
We made use of the spa bath once but does take a lot of water to fill.
It is a great location -on a very busy road but halfway between Stoke and Nelson CBD, and only a five minute walk to Tahunanui Beach which was lovely.
The managers were polite but not overly friendly -we would have appreciated more interest in our stay and offering of information rather than having to dig it out.
At the same price we paid, we would probably stay elsewhere.
Would you recommend to a friend? Yes
