We recently stayed here in the motel with my family and 2 small dogs, this was very filthy will never be back. Only good thing was location. Washing machines didnt work, taps kept running and couldnt turn off, stove and oven were removed, rubish bins smelt and was over flowing. When we arrived they receptionist opened the door and said...

Called in to look at the place, and to check prices. What a dump. Mess everywhere, piles of laundry bags piled up high in the office. It looked really dirty, shabby and obviously unkept. For the money they are asking ($35 per night, powered site) we drove on out. This place is a disgrace to NZ accommodation and shouldn't be... More

I have been staying at this motel last year, and this time (a few days ago) I had much better experience, the bedding seemed brand new and the motel rooms were very clean, even though the facilities are slightly outdated, but in general it was good value for money and i had a really good night sleep. I would recommend... More

We stayed in a cabin. We rejected the first one we were offered because the curtains didn't cover the window. The room felt grubby and smelt musty/ like some had been smoking in it a while back. The kitchen was disgusting— my husband refused to make a second cup of tea so that he didn't need to re-enter it. The... More

This place has everything going for it and needs a real tidy up. The guys who run this place clearly have no idea at all. We just pulled up and booked in - it was by far the cheapest place. We were in a camper, thank goodness, as we could finally make use of the 'self contained' status our van... More

We arrived and found other accommodation in the town fully booked. The rooms were basic as, expected for the money. They were also shabby. We had to request things like tea towels, coffee and data that weren't offered even though part of the package. There were dirty pans in the oven suggesting the room had not been checked after the...

Hard to rate really since we were in a fully self contained bus so didn't have the need or the desire to use the facilities at all but the place was so run down looking and a real eyesore to look at from the powered sites below. It was just a place to stop and lay our heads for the... More

I stayed at the A1 a few weeks ago and just after I moved in I read the reviews. Although this is no Marriot, it still is not the horror movie that some people are describing. The place needs investment but trust me, I have stayed in worst hostels or hotels. The guy at front desk has been helpful and... More
