We booked online and thought it was a great deal and so easy considering we were coming Boxing Day. Staying one night and was extremely disappointed with this place. Booked for myself, partner and son. Dust everywhere. Stains on the sheets and carpet. Looks like no body has bothered to look behind beside table or tv. Not ideal parking unless... More

I phoned the Hotel directly to ensure a sofa bed was made up as two single girls. This was not done, we arrived late so I did not want to disturb manager and took a sheet off the double bed. No milk in the fridge. These things mentioned by phone, manager took no responsibility and did not discount either. I... More

Staying in the middle of winter my first room was freezing and stunk, obviously why all its windows were left open. The furniture was covered in stains while the carpet was also. The room was very dated. I than asked... More

Handy to everything. Very tidy units. Great price. No complaints. Not much road noise. Hosts were very friendly. Good parking. Free laundry facilities. Hardly any noise from other guests. Stayed three nights. Room servicing daily to high standards. Happily recommend.

Glad we only stayed one night here as the carpets were really stained and the room just felt unclean. The shower felt as though you were going to fall through it and the free wifi that is advertised is so slow it won't even load an internet page. Overall we were disappointed with the stay at this place, however it... More

While this motel wasn't super modern, it was comfortable and fine for our needs. Despite being on the main road it was pretty quiet which was good, and the location close to the Westfield Riccarton, city centre and the airport was good. The easy access to the laundry was great also.

The owner was very accommodating as had to change to next night due to having to stay in hospital an extra night. Quiet location but some areas needed attention in the cleaning department. Good location Bed very uncomfortable and a bad nights sleep
