3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I ended up here after being kicked out by ponsonby back packers for no id. The room wasnt the ritz but after a 11 hour trip from wellington i was more than happy with it. I got a good nights sleep and thats all i required. Jono of ponsonby backpackers take note of what good customer service is .

We just wanted a cheap room close to town. We didn't find it too noisy. It´s so cheap - it came with a bed, fan, tv, shower. You can't expect too much that price. We did book on an alternative website and we were quoted a price that they didn't have written in the book but they charged us the price we said we were quoted. So that was good of them.

The owner was extremely rude - excuse me for trying to give you business on a weekend!
Noisy rooms - as they are on a major motorway on ramp road
not noisy from the bar - they didn't have many customers, the owner must have scared them off already
AVOID

Room Tip: take goor earplugs or get drunk!

Move over Jamie Oliver, the lady that cooks at this establishment has been in this kitchen for well over a decade. A lovely lady whose food is prepared and served with love. You will feel it, you will taste it. It will remind you of your mother or grandmothers home style cooking. The food was so good that we decided meet our friends for breakfast the next day as well. Great atmosphere and staff that are so down to earth, friendly and like a chat. Cheap as chips and just a nice place to hang out and have a drink.

The windows would not close properly. The beds were uncomfortable. The bathroom was dirty. There was no internet. The decor needed updating. I would not return to this place. It was cheap though.
