Three of us stayed 5 nights over Easter in a 2BR apartment. The property is well-located (particularly for our purposes), and was clean and comfortable. Despite being in the front room by a main road, little traffic noise was heard. Bathroom is a decent size, well equipped and modern., in fact all rooms and the kitchenette (2 gas hobs, microwave, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery etc.) were well sized.
The property was completely renovated a few years ago, but the standout is the manager Ivana. We are not demanding guests, but I arrived this trip having left my iphone charger at home. I mentioned it to Ivana and voila!, one iphone charger for me to use for the duration of the stay.
On our previous stay a few years ago we flew into CHC late and arrived at the property towards midnight. None of this 'key under the mat' business, Ivana was waiting up to check us in.
A couple of points which may be negatives for some people but did not bother us).
1) We were in the room for the first two day when it was serviced and the sheets were not changed (not in there the other days so unsure about them). Not unusual for motels in NZ and was not a concern to us for the short stay we had, but if it is to you, check before you book.
2) It appears only wired internet is available which again was not an issue to us, but may bother ipad users. Again, check directly before you book.
I would happily stay here again, and my ratings are in the context of it being a motel.
