We have stayed here before so we like this place. We always get a room in the middle building upstairs. The rooms are comfortable with good beds and nice pillows. Clean but old bathrooms but certainly nothing to complain about. Coffee, tea and a fridge and reasonable tv. Internet is a disappointment with only 200 mb free. (NZ does not... More

I have stayed at Sai Motel on 2 separate occasions. On the first occasion I was very impressed by the exceptional service and friendliness of reception staff. The room and bathroom was reasonably clean although the bathroom ceiling was quite mouldy. The soap/shampoo dispenser installed in the shower was empty. Bath towels are too small. They are suitable for a... More

The well spoken young lady broke off from clearing tables to tell me about the place as my wife and I were window shopping for somewhere to eat in Cambridge, and were checking out a row of four eateries. Onyx won, and I said to her, we’re back because of you. I am so glad she beamed in her beautifully... More

A rate was quoted in there internet site but as we were less than 5 minutes away from the motel we just drove there. On arrival we mentioned the special rate that was quoted on the site... More

Came here for auckland food show so wanted cheap accommodation. Yes it was very cheap but for price did expect a clean room. Ceiling had mould on it which I was able to wipe off with my finger, beds were extremely uncomfortable. Other than that it was ok.

Stayed at this motel on our first night in New Zealand. Was cheap and what we needed for the night. Comfortable enough...however the shower hadn't had a good scrub for a while by the looks of it...but in saying this the shower was so small you probably couldn't get in it to scrub it. The guy at the desk was... More

A clean, comfortable and quiet motel not too far from the city and on a main bus route. Friendly staff and recently renovated well-equipped air-con rooms (at least ours was) with kitchenette. We were a little hesitant when booking because the price was so low, but it's just a case of VFM
