Stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment for a Surf Lifesaving Pool competition, very nice warm accommodation, very accommodating with our booking, easy to deal with, nothing appeared to be a problem for them and in turn us. My sons enjoyed the stay including a long spa bath one evening Would definitely stay again

On arrival we found the proprietor quite unfriendly; there was no friendly banter of welcome. After we checked-in he handed over the key without any pleasantries and without telling us where our unit was located (I had to ask). It was a cold evening when we arrived, the proprietor knew we were a half hour away so it would have... More

The room was ALOT smaller than it looked in the photos, rather like a McDs Bigmac.The room smelt musty and there was not enough hot water to run a Spa Bath. The bath was cold and there was no hot water again that night to do the dishes or try and have another Spa Bath. For the price paid that... More

We stayed there for one night. We had 3 bedrooms with two hotels. The whole motel was clean with the receptionist giving us recommendations on places to go. With spacious toilets, kitchen and living room and TVs with good selection of channels, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there. Wished that we had stayed longer though.

Won tickets to Chiefs game and as a treat we thought we would splash out on a motel, more than what we wanted to pay but it was well worth it, Spa bath, relax, sky tv, hop skip and jump to the stadium, couldn't ask for much more than that. Made our 1 night stay feel like a treat. Hope... More

We were staying on holiday and all their recommendations for travel and sight seeing were perfect and made the trip all that much better.
