We had read several good reviews for the restaurant in this hotel (they call the restaurant the Grahamstown Bar and Diner or GBD), but we were a bit underwhelmed. The main disappointment was the service. We arrived about 6.30 on a quiet Saturday night and we were the only ones at a table there at the time, yet nobody came... More

I stayed here on a GrabOne deal which was very cheap. I now know why! I was warned when booking that there would be loud live music on the Friday night. They were right - it was very loud until late and I slept poorly, even though I'm a pretty deep sleeper. However, because I had been warned, I accepted... More

Have not stayed here but have eaten and drunk there and found it very pleasant, comfortable with nice helpful friendly staff and customers. It is easy to find about 2/3rds down the main street and on a Monday night is probably only one of a view places open on the whole street. They have good priced food and drinks are... More

Perfect accommodation for those holidaying in NZ on a shoestring budget. Good sized rooms, clean and very helpful staff. There is a restaurant on the ground floor which has a good varied menu that is not overpriced, but if you like a wine with your meal, be prepared to pay top dollar. One tip, do not order the shared seafood... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here spontaneously since she was sick and we didn't want to drive up to Coromandel town at night and miss the scenery. All they had left were a double room without ensuite or a twin without ensuite or a dorm room with bunkbeds with an ensuite. So we chose the double, we are young and... More

Good basic hotel, no frills but clean rooms, good choice of room sizes for a comfortable night. I've stayed here every year for the past 4 years and it has improved every year. If you want cheap it has bunk bed rooms with shared facilities or private double/twin en suite rooms. For New Zealand hotels away from big towns it... More

We have stayed at the Junction for the last three years while visiting the Paeroa Battle of the Streets motorcycle racing. Our little group has been made to feel welcome every time we've stayed and while the rooms are not large, not pokey either. The beds are comfortable and linen always clean. Service from the Public bar staff is second... More

Stayed with 2 other couples on a great Grab One deal. Small but adequate rooms. The shower was a bit hot/cold, not much control over this as the person showering! Very clean, and friendly owners and staff in bars and restaurants, as are the locals. We stayed on a very steamy weekend in February and found the rooms very stuffy... More

Enjoyed a great 2 night stay. Arrived Fri early evening & were welcomed by 1 of the onsite hosts. We had a double room with ensuite - small but good shower pressure. Tea/coffee making facilities were just along from our room & full kitchen downstairs. Had a great time in the downstairs bar , singalong with a couple of Irish... More

I just spent 2 nights here and loved it. Facilities were maintained to the highest standard and probably the cleanest budget hotel I have ever stayed in. I loved the beds, comfortable and excellent quality clean linen. We used the hotel as a base for exploring the Hauraki Rail Trail cycle way but got hooked into the history of the... More
