The room we were allocated requires serious attention. We are a family of 4 adults ( 2 x couples) and had a large unit that contained 1 x Queen bed & 2 x single. We arrived early evening after a long trip from Wellington, paid in advance & then shown to our room. This room looked nothing like the photo... More

The motor inn's staff were so friendly and knowledgeable that it made up for the inn's dated rooms and common areas. It is a very short walk to the beach, and bus stop, shops and restaurants are all within a 5 minute walking distance.

I had a studio room which was quite large, the bathroom was clean and the shower amazing, and the staff very friendly and helpful.On the downside there was a damp smell... More

This motor inn was in very poor condition and very poorly maintained. There was exploding plaster at the base of many walls due to rising damp, extreme musty odour in the rooms, beds were atrocious, mould throughout the bathroom, broken window latches, door locks not working and doors not closing. Reception staff were reluctantly helpful when we asked for other... More

The bed was absolutely had it, the room dirty, holes in wall and carpet, cigarette butts on the balcony ledge. I wrote a list of complaints and gave to the Manager in the morning who gave us a partial refund when he read it, but on reflection I should have demanded more. Only good points are the location as you... More

With mould in the bathroom,cobwebs everywhere, an iron that wouldn't work, at close inspection it had 2 breaks in the cord with exposed wires, extremely dangerous, where was health & safety, what a joke. Filthy Windows, dirty bedside tables, dusty side lamps, a deck that could do with a good scrub, a tiny travel hair dryer that was covered in... More

Pulled away single bed from wall as this was where the smell was the worst to find a mould spot the size of two dinner plates. The second room didn't smell as bad but still showed majors signs of leaky buildings.The whole building... More

I will start with the positives: The shower was excellent and spacious! Unfortunately that's where the 4-star status ends. Having decided to splurge a bit for a special occasion, this place was a miserable disappointment. It took ages for someone to help us at reception, but they moved us to a different room because the air con had conked out.... More
