We arrived in the pouring rain, but despite the car park being almost empty we were told to use a park that was not under shelter. The bloke at reception complained when we parked so that we could offload luggage under shelter! Returning to reception for details on the free wifi I was shown the login details on the wall...

This has to be the worst ever motel in New Zealand. Filthy windows. Enough hair down the bathroom sink plug to make a mat. Duvet and pillows so old and stained valance. No excuse for not having a standard of cleanliness.

this place needs a total reconstruction. our room surely was under construction: no cover on the floor of the living room, the toilet bowl was out of order, the shower was bad, etc. when asking the manager about this we were insulted ... never be back there

Very dated Motel .Manager seemed to be in panic mode - grey singlet and shorts was not a good look on reception - couldn't really be bothered to be civil. Unit was a little grubby and had some odd features like a hole in the wall for razor blades! , a built in radio that didn't work, a grubby/rusty bottle... More

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights(15-18 ),always read the reviews before booked ....most of the reviews for this place were pretty bad but we didn't pay much attention this time cause we just here for the tennis tournament so most of the day we will be at the court. So just want some place that clean and... More

We booked with bookings.com and brought the printout of the $130 advertised fee for 4 people. The manager insisted their rate was $110 for 2 plus $20 per additional person ($150 total). So he gave us two separate rooms for the overcharge of $30; we read that this has happened to other guests. Is it their common practice? Room was... More

From the time we arrived at motel things went downhill. Manager(?) was so wound up and stressed..... he should give the job up if he feels this way. We checked in, were told we had been upgraded, what a joke! The room was not what we had booked. We booked a double studio and got a room with 2 odd... More

Tired, dated and not particularly customer focused, this place is fine if ALL you want is somewhere to keep your stuff safe, somewhere to prepare a simple meal and somewhere to sleep. The rooms are simple painted block (we had room 17 – upstairs - but all the rooms look similar) with a very basic microwave, oven/stove/cooker (with broken ring),... More
