The combination of the dated 70's decor and the urgent need for significant refurbishment make this one of the least value motels we stayed in while travelling NZ.
The management and staff were friendly enough, but there needs to be a step up in management practice before this motel can be recommended to the travelling public.
The expensively priced meals in the restuaruant were huge and 99% of the adult population would be unable to eat a main course. Reducing meal size and price accordingly would attract more patrons to what was a virtually deserted restaurant on a Friday and a Saturday night.
The location is great and it is a shame that a motel with so much potential is being run this way.
At least the bed linen was clean.
