눉Very disappointing for $209/night for a family room. Got superior modern accommodation in Palmerston North for $205; and for $230 in Napier. Claims to be a budget hotel where you can spend a night instead of money - but the mattress needed replacing and the pillow was bad. The bunk beds for the kids were ok because of the newish foam mattress. We did not use the other 2 single beds - mattresses were too soft and should be thrown out. At least one window had a broken latch - that's where the slug would have come through and was crawling down the wall before we left the next morning (photos available). The driveways were also in disrepair with pot holes - it was raining when were were there so managed to transfer gravel into the car. Other reviews claim that the new owners have upgrade plans but we did not see any evidence or plans when we were there. The unit had a 1960's neglected feel throughout. How hard is it to put decent beds in to match the price and also do a better job of cleaning and basic maintenance? The modern clock in the kitchen was an attempt at modernisation but perhaps new batteries would have made it useful.
눇Stay had to be prepaid. This allowed us to put key in key box and leave early.
