Motels assessed for top quality in top spots
As the days grow longer, many will be thinking about their summer holidays. Qualmark-rated Top Motels are located within New Zealand’s premier TOP 10 Holiday Parks at more than 40 sites from Karikari Peninsula at the top of the North Island to Invercargill in the South Island.
The variety of well-appointed and quality motel units offer exceptional comfort at an affordable price.
All are independently assessed by Qualmark to ensure strict Top Motel standards are met, meaning you can expect the best in everything from a warm welcome to clean and modern facilities.
‘‘With over 40 independently owned Top Motels around New Zealand, you will be sure to find one close to your favourite holiday spot,’’ says David Ovendale, TOP 10 Holiday Parks Group chief executive.
‘‘Our motels are located at the best beaches, lakes and rivers and mountains. Some are close to national parks and others are urban in the heart of various towns and cities,’’ Ovendale says.
‘‘Parents will love that many of the Top Motels are located in garden and park-like settings with lots of things to keep kids entertained, allowing parents to really kick back.
‘‘From heated pools, private spa pools, playgrounds and jumping pillows, kids can run around, play, explore and meet other kids in a safe environment. It’s great peace of mind knowing they’ve got ‘contained freedom’ and won’t be too far away.’’
Philip Todd is the owner of the Top Motel in Invercargill. His property has a Qualmark fourplus star rating and silver Enviro award.
‘‘We are proud to offer genuine southern hospitality and will go the extra mile to ensure our guests go home telling people how they enjoyed their stay with us. Like all other Top Motel owners, we are passionate about the area we live in and our local knowledge means your experience will be a great one,’’ Todd says.
‘‘Check out Trip Advisor and see what people are saying, comments like ‘great motel,’ ‘fantastic service,’ ‘another great Top 10 stay’, ‘beautiful units.’ We take real pride in what we have to offer and in knowing that guests have a fantastic time staying with us.’’
