      Service was very good. Unit was tidy and modern. The only problem we had was very noisy neigbours for the night. They were out to party and returned from the pub about 11 and did not go to bed before 3.45am

    • Single

      All of the above.

      The children (7 and9) were not permitted to go into the pool as it was covered and owner said it was to stay that way for the pool to be warm for the next day. The pool was one of the reasons why we chose to stay at this complex.

      Friendly owner & staff; nice room which was a decent size

      The name of the place doesn't match the quality of the staff & the hotel rooms (in a positive way!) We weren't expecting the quality associated with the name - Lobster Inn Motor Lodge. The hotel was lovely & maybe needs a fancier name. We would definitely stay here again.

      Being on the ground floor and location

      Manager ran washing machine late at night, and the washing machine made a terrible noise. Apparently they couldn't take their washing to the laundry, so they saw fit to run the washing machines....which obviously need new brushes. This Motel is very dated and needs upgraded. Not good value for money and their tv reception is shocking

    • Family with children
      8.2

      Location and swimming pool. Also the room was very clean with a nice decor.

    • Family with children
      9.2

      Location and cleanlyness were fantastic. The kids loved the pool. Food was some if the best we have had on our trip. The chowder was one of the best I have ever had. Not lux 5 star but worth every penny and would definitely return/ recommend.

      The bar was a bit too local/basic with the gaming and bookies but the restaurant upstairs is the better option and made up for the bar.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Location, near excellent supermarket and great bakery. Rooms were clean and comfortable - excellent beds. Strongly recommend Kiakoura, by the way.

      Location, on main highway between Christchurch and North Island. Incessant noise from trucks. End rooms on upper floor of motel face back of local sports bar smoking area. Entertaining briefly, but gets a bit wearing as the beers take effect! Ask for ground floor rooms, or rooms on south sidek of office.
