In the budget accommodation category, provides average value if you need to stay a few hours before travelling on. Unit was large, separate toilet, shower, bedroom, lounge / kitchenette. No bath, shower only. Fittings, fixtures and furniture throughout the unit was dated and worn, the décor needs some investment. Unit was as a clean is it can be considering the... More

The manager there was very helpful and friendly when we got there. It was a last minute booking so expectations weren't very high but I was surprised by the service received. The room did have quite a damp smell and the kitchen facilities weren't very clean. It was quite spacious for 5 people in a family suite but was quite... More

Upon arrival we were quite frankly disgusted at the lack of cleanliness and hygiene in the unit. When we opened the door we were greeted by the strong scent of a damp cold musty aroma. On further checking we were not at all happy to find mould in the bathroom and on door frames, food splashes on cupboards, dirty walls,... More

I return home to NZ every year and this time we weren't staying with family, needed somewhere for a total of 20 nights and this is EXACTLY what we needed. I was traveling with my 3 year old daughter so needed somewhere where we could cook our own meals so we didn't have to eat out all the time, somewhere... More

After a long flight from Washington DC to Auckland I was grateful to be met by Francis at 6:45 on Sunday morning and shown to my room (I was not charged for the morning and my room charges commenced from Sunday night). My room was comfortable, quiet and clean, and well-serviced for the 11 days that I stayed there -... More

We checked into the Ranfurly Evergreen Motel and were impressed at its presentation. The owner, Francis was very friendly and even went out of his way to tell us the attractions of the city and book us in for various attractions. The room was clean and the service we received was excellent, and the location of the motel was quite... More

I have stayed in better places in 3rd world countries and found more helpful people in Moscow last year and I couldn't even speak Russian...! Operators like this are not needed in tourism...the place is filthy and the operators attitudes need adjusting. Like the previous review I was made to follow the manager to my room on check out for... More

We are sorry to see the previous review of these moteliers as we have just had a very positive experience in our dealings with them. A genuine misunderstanding over a booking arose and once the matter was explained as to how the misunderstanding occurred then Francis and Theresa Baek were quick to respond in a favorable manner and achieve an...

I have never written a review before-as I have never felt moved enough to do so, but from the get-go our stay at the Ranfurly motel defied belief. Firstly, all prospective customers of the Ranfurly should be aware that the cancellation policy on the motels website is, according to the manager, able to be changed at his discretion without amending...
