Staying here was very stressful for my family as we did not get treated well AT ALL. The owner, Bonnie, was very rude and gave the hotel such an unwelcoming feeling, made me want to leave ASAP. The hotel was a very nice place to stay and the food, good, but the service I received was incredibly degrading. The beds... More

I know there are a lot of good reviews about this Hotel which is why we booked it but our experience was very disappointing. We were 3 couples traveling in one van and had booked our rooms 6 weeks prior to the date. We chose Helensville as we were having a road trip from Tauranga to Dargaville and thought it... More

Courtesy van at our disposal was an added bonus. Breakfast was great value, as were the room rates. Outside courtyard is... More

We had an inside courtyard room, so no traffic sounds. No bedside lamps or bathrobes provided, but good bed. Since September 2012 new management and new decoration of the downstairs dining area.
