have stayed at the Balmoral previously for work and family purposes. Rooms are very spacious and homely feeling with seperate areas and kitchenette. Seems a shame to only stay one night. Great value and friendly staff

I've stayed at Balmoral twice this year, once in February and once in May. The rooms are good value, a great size and have everything you need. Nice and close to town. The staff are friendly. The internet is unreliable though - on both occasions it repeatedly dropped out, then froze, and did something odd to the browser settings in... More

We booked this motel through Fly Buys very easily on-line. There was a box to send any preferences or special notes - which we entered our preferences in. Sometimes you can be cast off with such things as second class guests when booking through Fly Buys, but we received a friendly answer confirming our choice of room. I had brought... More

Spacious room for just one person (mezzanine style apartment). Very clean although some furnishings were a bit dated. I had unit 12 with a spa bath which was a nice treat. Good cooked breakfast as well and the bed was comfortable and the bedroom quiet.

Beautifully appointed and spacious 2 bedroom unit with lots of little "extras" like heated towel rails and in-floor heating in the bathroom! The staff were very friendly and welcoming and it was just a short drive into town where we had dinner.

Cant complain about the accommodation or service. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff bend over backwards to help. The only problem ( and it is a big problem ) was the internet. It works fine for general browsing but as soon as I tried to upload photos to my own website or my Facebook page it just... More

Recently stayed here with my husband and our daughter. We absolutely loved our overnight stay in this hotel. The layout of the apartment was spacious and very enjoyable. Hotel staff were a true delight to deal with. By far one of the best stays on our NZ holiday to date. Would happily recommend this hotel.
