It wasn't really suitable for us, the room was very dated and a little bit further away for the city than we needed, we had a baby so too far out. The positives - The staff were friendly, the parking was free, the room was pretty clean, bathroom very spacious with a great powerful shower. The bed was comfy and... More

Great location, off street free parking, reasonable room rates. Outdated decor, but warm and comfortable, and reasonably quiet considering the location, would stay here again just for the location, a short stroll to Cuba Street and Aro Valley.

We stayed one night in this hotel; in the penthouse on the top floor. I must say that although I have rarely stayed in penthouses, this one is certainly different. Upon arriving the outside of the hotel is completely run down and navigating around to the hotel parking is a challenge in itself. The reception is tiny and as you... More

Clean Sheets, uncomfortable beds, curtains coming off rails in more than one room, dirty carpets, hole in the wall and no lampshades on wall lights in one bedroom, one room unable to shut door as bed in the way, howling gale coming through from missing door handle, cooker unfit for use due to greasy dirt and shower dirty round edge...

Quite possibly the worst place I've ever stayed in. The room was disgusting with what looked like pubic hair still in the shower. That itself was held together with silicon filler. When I complained, the lady at the reception desk all of a sudden couldn't speak English. Don't even consider this place. Pay $50 more and stay somewhere decent.

Not sure what the other rooms are like, but the group of 8 i was with stayed on the very top floor and it contained everything we required for a couple of nights. Sure, the carpet is 80's, the decour is 80's but the place was pleasant, with decent views, windows that opened, and a functional kitchen. Beds weren't brilliant,... More

Arrived and found parking quite limited. Reception was reasonable a little confusion we were a sports group 2 teams of 7. The rooms were adequate but a little bit tired. The location is right in clubs, pubs and restaurant area. There is a lot of traffic and people noise from outside. A good place for a bed.

Would never recommend this place to anyone. The rooms are filthy, i found a used condom beside the bedside table. Its cold, noisy and the heater doesn't work. The shower was broken when i arrived, asked them to fix it and they taped it to the wall. Not ideal when it gets wet... i would rather sleep in my car... More

We'd already seen the reviews on-line, but we'd booked the Motor Inn (last June actually!) at a time when the City was going to be choc-a-block, and many Motels/Hotels had either blocked out their rooms, or couldn't offer us enough nights (we wanted 5 nights). First impressions count - so they say, and sadly our first impressions were not good.... More
