Stayed at the Ashley 10 June, a very elderly hotel crying out for a modern refit to bring it into the 21st century and move on from the 60's were it seems to be languishing. The staff are very cheerful, friendly and helpful, top marks to these young ladies. Now the restaurant is another world, main courses over $35, a... More

Not a bad hotel (more like motel) but in serious need of updating. Rooms are small and rather dark. Beds are extremely soft. Very small showers. Fairly clean but a bit worn. Hotel is out of the center of town and not much is in walking distance. OK stay for a great part of NZ but don't expect a lot... More

For me this was just one more dumpy motel in a long line of dumpy motels. What was unusual was the the free wifi that quit being free after 2 hours. You got a little piece of printer paper from the reception lady with a user name and password that you put in to your device. It lasted 2 hours... More

The hotel makes a good first impression but the room was in need of an update. It was a good size and quiet despite being located at the front of the hotel on the main road. The beach was only a short walk away and my boys enjoyed the pool. The smell from the bathroom was unpleasant, even when the... More

Superior Room Double was very clean, plastic bags on the extra pillows, plastic bags on the drinking glasses. Linen was very soft, beds were comfortable. Off street parking. Upstairs overlooking the car park and the cemetery, very quiet. The pool looked inviting. The staff were very helpful, in particular the young man who offered to carry our suitcases up the... More

we stayed for one night - it was Easter Sunday... We were very warmly greeted and our room was fine - it had all we needed and the complimentary wifi was great.
