“Clean and functional, no air conditioning meant room a bit warm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2011

The Village Motel is a tidy example of regional New Zealand motels. The bed was comfortable and pillows in good condition. The room was clean and large, with a spa bath in the corner. TV a small CRT that could do with being replaced. Lack of air conditioning meant my top storey room was a bit warm...but this would only rarely be a problem - suggest a downsatirs room if it is likely to be warm weather. Very close to shops and hosts friendly.

Hi ANZ man,

We took over the motel 26th January 2011,just after you stayed, we now have 32" flat screen LCD TV with 24 channels in all rooms and air-conditioning in most of our rooms. we have also replaced pillows, bedding, towels and robes. so we welcome you to come back one day to see our ongoing improvements.

Kind Regards,
Tony & Nancy
