We loved everything about our stay at Akaroa Waterfront Motels! We were impressed by the standard of the unit we had. It was very nicely laid out with high quality fittings & a comfy bed. We had a ground floor unit which was only a few steps from the water. The views are amazing! We can't wait to return for a longer stay next time.
