Just returned from a week at Arthur wakefield motel .Richmond...while the tariff was very reasonable ...the motel needs a lot of work doing to it... to bring it in line with others ...carpet. drapes, net curtains and furnishings were all past there best ...having to share a shoppers car park was a pain ..as the noise was annoying ....local businesses back onto this car park and from 5 am in the mornings rubbish disposal trucks crash and bang .and delivery vehicles also add to the noisy car park....I think the addition of double glazing would help alleviate the noise ....our unit had a number of faults ....radio not working ....razor outlet not working ....no forks supplied for eating ..only cooking device was a microwave .no dish washing facilities. Out of the unit the laundry was a disgrace and we refused to wash there....the courtyard had possibilities, but was run down and dirty .with the smell of cooking oil or fat emanating from the dining room kitchen ......we have used motels all around new zealand for over 55 years ......and this is the first time we have ever had reason to write a review.. I feel this motel in the right hands and with some investment in an upgrade it would be one of the best in the area.
