                  The staff were fantastic - and the room was perfect. I've never stayed in such a remarkably clean and comfortable unit. The staff/owner's seem to genuinely care about the motel and the environment as well and even though our stay was just one night we rate it as top of its game!

                • Older travelers

                  The Sails hotel is a consistently good place to stay. We stay here evey year to break the trip from visiting relations back to Welington.

                  service was great and so was the units which were clean.

                  Just the location which is about a good 15 minute walk from the main town, although thats not an issue for young couples. Maybe for older couple or family...although there are several resorts/motels/apartments along the way and also a very scenic walkway which helps.

                  Great price for quality accommodation. Warm welcome on arrival. Soothing and calming views from balcony. Balcony is a really nice feature. Room has a nice flow and is very comfortable. Close to town. Quiet.

                  Unsightly, dirty rubbish bin by stairways to room.

                  We liked the fact that it had a separate bedroom and it was very quiet despite being on the main road by the lakefront. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were really nice and we had room to park both our cars on the premises as we had come from different cities (Auckland and Wanganui). Had a lovely stay and will be returning.
