We stayed here for one night in December. The room was well equipped and spacious. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. Beds were good but we had trouble sleeping, because of the traffic on the street and the constant heat caused by the lack of AC. Overall the experience was average, but not bad in any particular...

the hotel was quiet nice and the room was spacious and kitchen well equipped. but the hotel had the strangest shower we had ever seen. we really did not figure out how to use it. door to kitchen was not closing. it is a little bit outside city center but still ok to walk. staff was really nice and helpful.

We had our last night in NZ at 136 on Bealey. After a long day on the road it was refreshing to walk into a modern, clean and well ventilated room. The beds were great and the air conditioning unit on the wall filled us with joy, having spent many nights in stuffy hot rooms. The kitchenette has a microwave... More

Good room layout, good bed and bathroom with excellent shower. Free wifi. However the room was too expensive and the noise was dreadful. Unfortunately we had a roadside room. We'd booked two nights (Friday and Saturday) and the constant revving and racing of the boy racers cars drove us nuts. Most unfortunate.

Overall the room is okay with kitchen facilities and free wifi. Request for a room facing the back if you have to stay here. We had rooms facing the front main road and it's noisy with people walking by, morning traffic and sirens from the ambulance (since there is a hospital directly opposite).

Stayed there for a night with a car. Spacious room, fully equipped, microwave oven, toaster,... I did not liked the bed much. Too soft and jumpy. But there is bathtub in a bathroom which is good. The location is good, not far from the city centre - a walking distance. Quiet place.

Stopped at this motel for a night's stay and it is a decent place to stay. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and nice. The room also provided an ensuite facility which could be used in case you wish to cook by yourself. The motel is also situated at a very central location and there are some places to visit... More

I can't complain about this motel. The room we stayed in had recently been upgraded and looked really modern. The bath had a spa (was not expecting that!) and an updated kitchen with facilities to cook your own meals. We hired a DVD player and DVD's from reception (for free) and made ourselves at home. The lady at reception was... More

My mother and I stayed for a weekend away about a month ago. The Motel was very clean and close to the CBD but does need updating. If you advertise having Sky I would assume you would have more then 2 x channels which was very dissapointing as all we were able to get was sport and 1 other channel... More

The location was great, at the intersection crossing and right in front of the street so very easy to find, also just walking distance to city center. The lady at the receptionist was really kind, we checked in and out with no fuss. The room was clean, spacious and nicely equipped, complete with microwave and eating utensils. Wifi also free...
