Stayed here one night when accomodation in Christchurch was impossible to find. Very old and basic Motel -badly in need of refurbishment - carpet in our unit worn in one place to bare weaving under neath. Black mould/ dirt in and around shower and loo - electric blankets barely heated up and the heaters were so old they were positively dangerous. The heat pump, once it was coaxed to put out a bit of heat, nearly choked us with the smell of burning dust! And so loud we turned it off. To add to our woes we discovered that the shower produced a mere lukewarm trickle, hardly any flow at all. On going to complain we discovered the guest in the room next to us bitterly upset that her shower did not work at all, and the motelier busy telling her that she did not know how to work it! Come on motelier - not a great impression - budget does not mean dirty as we found it and things may be old, but they should still work properly!
