Our children were delighted with our room, booked over Wotif and ready when we arrived. We the parents loved not sharing a room with the kids! Rooms were well stocked with soap, towels, coffee, milk and tea equipment. Decor clean, quirky although a little down at heel. Staff were very helpful and found us an essential coffee plunger when asked.... More

When we arrived we had to ring a doorbell there was no reception that you would enter. We were greeted by a young man very laid back perhaps a little too laid back considering this is a business, he handed us a key. There were two of us (singles) so I was shocked to see how tiny the room was... More

When we first checked in, we were impressed, but it stopped there. The manager handed me a key and said the room was down there. When tried yo open the door, the key would not work until many attempts. He told me there was so mething in side the lock, so he would have to have it replaced at some... More

Facilities awkward and unit very cramped. Décor resembled opshop or garage sale. Only net curtains on windows. No soap. Wardrobe inaccessible. Advertised with satellite tv - understood that meant Sky, but no! The only chairs were tiny ones at a table. Had to sit on the bed. Woman who answers the bell very keen to help and pleasant, but never... More

We arrived early and no one was here just a phone to call them to come give us a call. The owners said there was an unfortunate thing happen to their family recently which made up for no one here. They were noce to come in early so we could leave our bags here so we could explore. The window... More

We arrived on a very cold night, told to park round the back which was a bit squashed, I couldn't get the panel heaters to go, but found a small fan heater which was just adequate. Shower opens off the lounge/hall, bedrooms a bit of a squish, but clean and tidy. Internet on vouchers is not very convenient, and had... More

Totally recommend this Motel for a winter stay over. Clean, warm and cozy. Decor was pleasant and tasteful. I stayed for one night in studio 3 and could not fault the cleanliness or service at all. Great stay, will definitely return.

Stayed here for two separate nights, while we were travelling around the North Island. Both apartments were very cluttered with furniture that was just not needed. EG a hat stand and 6 foot shoe rack. Had asked for a cot as we were travelling with an 18 month old and on arrival were told it was broken. Wifi was fine... More

We were here for a week and the cost was reasonable and open to some negotiation. The unit comprised an open plan lounge/kitchen area, shower room, small hallway, and bedroom. It was small overall but the real problem was that so much stuff (furniture and appliances) had been put in there that you could barely move around. Indeed the bedroom... More

We stayed in the largest apartment, 2 rooms. Looked great in the photos but upon arrival we noticed that so much extra furniture had been added to the apartment and it was hard to move in there! We noticed that none of the glasses, cutlery etc in the kitchen matched so we were short for the amount of people staying... More
