Score from 91 reviews Good
The room was comfortable and spacious, with kitchen galley and bathroom.
The room though serviced daily with a clean towel and tea, the shower was not cleaned daily and bed not made.
Promp tand friendly service when requested.
The lighting along the fenceline was on early but by 9.30pm it was turned off so therefore found it a bit difficult to see when parking.NO extractor fan or bathroom heating causing mould on the windows.
no clear hotplate settings
The price was good, a little old but good value for money
Bright red, black & white unit, felt like we were overseas
Cold at nite, not enough blankets. Could not use the cooking element in the unit - seeted to be on a 30 sec timer and instructions for use not in English
cleanliness bed was comfortable
how close the units were to each other. the staff weren't very friendly. tv wasn't all it cracked up to be could have been more utensils in the kitchen bathroom could have been stocked better
Nice clean rooms with kitchen facilities. Free Wifi
Good location and value for money. Staff quickly returned our lost property, after some initial confusion.
Guests were required to clean their unit's kitchen or face $50 penalty. Notice in units said that beds were not made up for guests. I have never encountered either of these rules in a motel before. Although they help keep costs down, they are quite strange and not what I'd expect in a motel.
Dated décor and poor lighting Cooking top hard to use
Owner was very accommodating, room was clean, good space.
Location was good Off street parking Great view of the mountains
Interior night lighting was very poor Heating needs to be updated Shower built for very short people (I had to kneel on shower floor to get under shower head) No Sky TV No free WiFi
Bedding was clean
Our unit had a horrible smell Carpet was torn Overall needs a tidy up! Got put in room 1 by the main road! Was so noisy we got no sleep The man/staff was rude & unhelpful we came home early couldn't bare another night there.
lovely and warm :) very comfortable stay and brilliant location! Thanks :)
The room is very comfortable with all amenities one needs for 1 night stay. We are a family with 2 teenage children, the family room is great for us. The kitchen was clean with everything we needed, fantastic shower with good water pressure. Bed was very comfortable with nice fresh linen. Very happy for what we need for a night's accommodation.
Did not like room facing office/reception block. We were hoping for a better view of the mountains, can't see from our room as the building was right in front of our room. If you are staying for more than a night do ask for a room with mountain view. I did ask but they do not have one for a family.
Beds comfy all with electric blankets and plenty hot water
We arrived 2pm check in.motel not ready. They started luxing while we waited.one young man helpful. Dripping taps. Hopeless heaters.a mouse. They bought poison for us
Owner was friendly, helpful , Easy to find. Rooms was a good size
the room was a good set up.
our eldest came to us with a beer bottle found under the bed. I moved the lounge table and there was dirt and dead moths etc under it. broken glass on the carpet. there was dust on every surface as we had a check after the dirt being found. there was spiders in the wardrobe in the main bedroom. squished bugs on the ceiling. leaky taps that kept us awake at night. blood on the wall in the lounge and the one that really got us was bed bugs in the beds. kids woke up with bites on them
good price for a family
all pretty retro could do with some tidying up. not much of an area for kids to play
Quiet unit; spacious. Welcome from manager/owner Excellent shower - good pressure and temp.
Layout - lack of a tv that could be viewed from bed. Dated decor - signs of mold. Broken bathroom wash bowl - a cosmetic problem only but very off putting. value for money - not really, not at this time of year. Previous night I stayed cheaper and better at Huka Falls.
Very handy location
No Sky TV to watch the All Black test live. No potato masher either.
Plenty of heating Beds were comfortable
Shower flow was very poor despite an adaquate supply of hot water. Papers were not delivered to units daily and you had to request one to get one Website photo deceived one into thinking unit had a sea view. Motel was nowhere near the sea.
Unfriendly staff. One room was without heater and have to request for one. Bathroom was cold. No heater. Asked for a quite room and was given the most noisy one. The room next to the main room. Lots of heavy vehicles passed by. No free internet. Not coming back.
For the price the unit was excellent. Very nice and warm, quite modern and very clean. We would def. stay there again.
We cant think of anything we did not like.
Warm room (winter)
Poor reception service Dated decor
In general the room just seemed kind of dirty. There was a musty smell in the room, that didn't go away despite airing out the room. I wouldn't stay here again.
