We would like to advise that our motels are having their long awaited earthquake repairs to the Managers Residence, Office and Guest Laundry.
The construction works will happen Monday to Friday, during business hours, in the period between the 13th September and 22nd December, then again from 15th January until April 2024. There may be periods of some noise and temporary disruption during these times.
Our office has been relocated to unit 106, come and visit us there to check-in or if you have any concerns during your stay.
The works will not affect any of our existing guest units, facilities nor the great views! However, we appreciate you may find this disruptive so have implemented free cancellations in the period 24hrs prior to arrival.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the work and how it might affect your stay with us.
