Our experience at this motor inn did not match the reviews. Our unit was not that clean...mould in the shower, skirting boards that hadnt been cleaned for ages etc. Lots of street noise due to boy racers along Maunganui Road, which is the main road into town. Also, noise from adjacent units kept us awake. We wont be back

Very welcoming host and very helpful. Room was very clean and very comfortable. Beds were very comfortable and although on quite a busy road, road noise was not an issue at all. Kitchen was very well appointed with all the bells and whistles one could possibly need. Unit was very spacious with a small outside area front and back of the unit. Host recommended a cafe across the road from the Motel rather than the Continental breakfast on offer. Pleasant place to stay.

I booked this property through Hotels.com. I have made many bookings through Hotels.com and this is the first time ever that I turn up and have no booking. I even had a print out of the reservation but according to the poor person who was dealing with this, the owner had apparently emailed me and since I didn't respond straight away, they cancelled my booking without my knowledge. How can I respond if I didn't receive the email? Could they not have called me as I checked that my account details had my correct mobile in there. If they were concerned about me not turning up, surely they can charge my credit card. There were absolutely no other vacancies in the area and luckily a friend let us sleep on their floor which was not ideal. What if I was travelling and new noone in the area? Such bad practice on their part.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit with another couple and enjoyed our stay. Staff allowed us to check in early and the room unit was very spacious with large bathroom and seperate toilet. Was very impressed with the cleanliness and facilities were great. Only stayed one night so didn’t get to try out the spa and pool but would love to come back again. Ideal location and a comfortable stay
