Recently stayed here with a sports team. It well suited our needs as far as location, room configuration and price was concerned. It is in need of upgrading and repair work but for basic, budget accommodation it's ok . Staff friendly and very obliging. Laundry facilities and pool great.

Pros: The receptionist was very friendly, and went out of her way to help us. She organized our early check in with no hesitation which we appreciated. The unit was spacious and warm, we received 3 hours free wifi, and they changed the towels daily. Cons: The kettle leaks and burnt my foot, the toaster also needs replacing. Oven door... More

Excellent motel. Would recommend it to others. Where it was a bit dated in style, it made up for it with excellent service, cleanliness, spaciousness and very comfortable beds! We will definitely be staying again. Thank you from our family :)

I booked the Takanini Park Motor Lodge for 3 nights during the V8 Supercars as somewhere cheap to stay. I had read the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised with what is excellent value for money accommodation. There were two males staying there so the 2 bedroom unit we were given was more than suitable for the stay, and was very... More

There are some major positives and negatives about these motels. The reception area had a terrible smell when I first arrived..really bad first impression - however the welcome from the manager was very warm and helpful. The unit I was in was pretty dire in terms of being so worn and in need of some TLC - even holes in... More

Upon arrival the first thing we noticed was the photos online did not match up to what we were seeing. The photos online are so small you can not enlarge them. The front office had an old stale smell to it but friendly receptionist. The grounds messy and needed some TLC. The room had a power switch that was loose... More

On arrival I noted poorly kept grounds, a dark and strange smelling reception and some rubbish that needed to be cleared away. Entering one of the units we had rented I had to remove a dead cockroach from the kitchen bench. More dead cockroaches were found later in the week. During the week I enquired as to why one of...
