3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2010

The rooms were good enough for the price, just the basics..we booked this motel for stopover coz of the spa pool but we were only allowed to use it for 20 mins--realky with a timer!!the owner said other guests myt want to use it too (we were the only guests at the motel!)

I agree with the previous reviewer, Whilst not extremely attractive from the outside, the welcome and stay were great!

Russ was extremely polite friendly. We were greeted almost as if we were returning friends, rather than first-time visitors.

The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the use of the motel spa to unwind after a long motorcycle ride.

Unprepossessing from the outside it may be, but it is what is 'inside' that counts.

The motel was comfortable, clean and neat. A continental breakfast was included.

Fittings were appropriate for the approximate NZ$85 for a double.
