Excellent location far enough from Auckland yet not to far to drive after flight home. We were made to feel very welcome. Heater was on in room on anticipation of our arrival. Basic motel room yet very clean. Ample parking. Hard to find as there was no signage with lights to show entry to complex in the dark

I booked for 4 nights during fieldays. Yes the place is dated, yes it's a bit old & tired BUT it's clean, tidy and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. I even booked for an extra night. It was nice and quite and only 15 minute drive to Mystery Creek. Only negative comment is that it would be... More

As soon as we arrived we felt welcomed by the staff who escorted us to our room. We were given a family room which was huge and perfect for our large group of friends. we got a good night sleep after a short walk back from town as it is located away from SH1 traffic. We will totally be coming... More

Just better than camping: Not many positives, owners need to invest, looks to be 60s original inside and out, staff were friendly, shower was a drip, fridge was the smallest fridge I have ever seen. Should be budget accommodation , at very budget price

Rang Wotif and changed the booking, however they needed Kaye's okay to ensure we only stayed 2 nights. The Office staff confirm all okay when we handed in the keys after the 2nd... More

We stayed at the Riverside of Cambridge as most of the motels in the area were either to expensive or were booked out. Kay the manager was very helpful in settling us in. Room was tidy with big opening French windows which when opened allowed fresh air into the room.Motel is a little out of the way and was very... More

We booked 3 rooms for a sporting event. It was the only accommodation available in Cambridge that weekend. The reception area was extremely run down and smelly. We should have walked out then before paying a cent. It went from bad to worse. The rooms were so run down. Carpet was worn and looked dirty. The enamel hand basins were... More

A good location is the only saving grace of this place Our experience mirrors most of your other reviews.We did stay for one night but only after rejecting the first room offered. We had a family room for the price of a studio,because the first room did not have cooking facilities which we had booked. The room was worse than... More

Earlier this year we had the misfortune to book into a family unit at this place. Warning bells should have rung when they demanded full payment upon arrival and did not escort us to the rooms. When we got there we had an identical experience to the many reviews below. We were directed to the rear of the property, where... More

Tidy, clean and basic. But others think worse. We stayed 2 nights. Sadly it is lacking love and maintenance. Asphalt is breaking up which struck me first. Friendly lady at reception. Textured ceilings not the best but bed fresh and clean and good shower. Definitely not the worst but just know what it is like. Would have been quite the... More
