“Nice motel, great location, clean rooms and reasonably priced”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

This was a great stay. The motel was within walking distance to the CBD. The room was clean and also had a kitchenette. The internet charge was also reasonable. The reception lady was very helpful with directions and also walked me up to the room to ensure I was happy with it.
One pleasant surprise was the fact this motel organises fixed fare taxis to the airport. My taxi came on time (very early in the morning) and the fixed fare was NZ$25. This was great because I didn't have to worry about traffic or anything and I knew exactly how much it was going to cost.

We (Malaysians) had booked double rooms instead of triple (by error) and surprised Grant when we checked in late evening. However, he was ever so obliging and did as much as he could to make sure we had a comfortable stay. Much appreciated, Grant! The lodge is pleasant with a good location, rooms were clean, beds had clean sheets and heated blankets, nice toiletries. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

This lodge has potential. Grant has recently taken it over and has nice plans. He was very helpful and gave us good suggestions for local sites and restaurants. We were able to walk to 2 very good restaurants, one for breakfast and one for dinner. We also walked over to the Botanical Gardens. We appreciated the location as we didn't have a car. Our room was big with a separate bedroom, huge bathroom with a large jacuzzi tub. The furniture is old and needed replacing in the living area.

All I can say is that a lot of the past reviewers of this lodge have very low expectations and standards. We stayed for 3 nights and I would not stay again. We had a one bedroomed apt that was cold, damp and dark. I would not want to stay here in the winter it must be freezing in the bedroom and bathroom. The furniture is old and grubby with horrid grease marks on the arms and backs and the curtain blind pulls were black with dirt, they clearly had never been cleaned. The guy at the desk could only recommend 1 place to eat and that was a nasty pub down the road. The lights ouside the apt were very bright and on all night making it difficult to sleep. For the price I expected much better and have stayed in better for less. I would also have expected free wireless for the price.
Also there are NO eating places close by, you have to drive to get anywhere, not good for a city motel.

Room Tip: No rooms are good from what I could see

Outstanding location, and service from Grant. Rooms are large and very clean, linen lovely and the bed very comfortable. Bathrooms are large, and the kitchen has all you need. Location is great, walk into city and 10min walk to supermarket. Lots of eating places close by. Grant was very helpful with directions, and booking shuttles. He ensured we had great plans for the day and he had great ideas for us, nothing was too much trouble for him. Would definitley recommend it and we will stay again if we came back here. Thanks Grant, your Kiwi hospitality was fantastic!!

Room Tip: we stayed downstairs, no problems.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment for three nights. The owner was friendly and apartment clean and well serviced. The only downside was that the wireless internet was given two hours at a time which meant we couldn't be continuously connected for emails.
