This is Not an establishment that I would recommend to anybody. The rooms are dated and worn, (the photos they use in advertising must be extremely old) , basic fixtures struggle to work and/or don't work, towels are small and worn, and the room smelt of mould and damp. However it was the customer service that I found the most... More

A good motel site (probably due to early acquisition). Handy to bus and CBD shuttle stops and a supermarket. Tariff probably reflected dated room. Some guests appeared to be enjoying heated swimming pool. Free late check out until 2pm was included on my reservation confirmation and I planned accordingly. At about 12pm a person was telling me I had not... More

it's an old motor inn, everything was just ok. i wouldn't say it's very clean but for the money we paid i can't really complain. We wasn't planning to stay here so frankly speaking this was the worst place we stayed throughout our trip in NZ. For those seeking a "good" budget accommodation this is going to disappoint you. But... More

We stayed here for three nights. The staff were all friendly and helpful, happy to open the restaurant for us if we wanted to eat, too tired on this occasion so we didn't take them up on it, although it is a good menu and very reasonably priced. I will only be negative as I am assuming they are working... More

Stayed one night and definitely would not recommend this place. We arrived later in the evening and were too tired to look for another place to stay. The only good thing I can say is that the staff were friendly and helpful. Room smelled musty and the ceiling fan was too noisy to use and we suffered a hot sticky... More

Booked on booked.com, for specials. Great competitive price $85. Room we got was below average. Tired looking. If the competiveness is to get people in, I'm afraid I wouldn't come here again. I am prepared to pay good price but willing to check special deals through Booked.Com. Some obvious things were,light bulbs not working, slide door into bathroom not sliding,you... More

We were there less than 2hrs while I hunted for other accommodation I have never seen a room so dirty I didn't want to touch anything.The only positive thing was they refunded all our money except deposit straight away and we booked into motel next door who lucky for us had a cancellation.
