We had encountered such lovely, friendly, hospitable people throughout New Zealand -- it's just a shame that none of those people were at Cooks Lookout motel.2008-03-01 - virtualtourist.com
Norm and Sheila (the proprietors) were incredibly unprofessional, opportunistic and rude, not particularly good traits for people in an industry where they rely so much on repeat business and word of mouth.2008-03-01 - virtualtourist.com
The motel rate is on the expensive end for the district and nicer rooms can certainly be found at cheaper rates.2007-12-12 - travel.yahoo.com
