Kelt Capital Horse of the Year - A celebration of all things equestrian - New Zealand

Motel/Accommodation available:

Hi,  We want to go to Australia in the near future to see our son and having just seen the people arriving across the road I thought I would see if there was a family that still hasn’t found accommodation.

We live right across the road, in Kenilworth Road (myself, husband and daughter).  I am an early childhood teacher, my husband a mechanic and our daughter is in high school. 

We have a room downstairs that has a pool table in it but it has a queen bed and pull out sofa and T.V.  It can also fit another two mattresses.  They would have their own toilet and basin but need to share our bathroom and kitchen. Obviously it would suit someone down to earth willing to share a room with their children for the week/few days.

I was thinking $90.00 per night with a basic tea included. (meat and three veg or stir fry etc and dessert).

Look forward to hearing from you
