“Good value but a bit tired”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

The good: Rooms are large, and spotlessly clean. Beds are comfortable, bathroom is large and the shower works well. Reasonably priced plus they take Bartercard. Staff are friendly and helpful.
The bad: decor is tired 1980s, could do with a refurb. Looks like they gave up the battle of trying to clean the windows against the onslaught of liquefaction dust post-earthquakes.
The ugly: truck drivers start their rigs very early outside your window!
All in all, if you're not bothered about fancy frills and decor, this isn't a bad choice.

Clean Hotel, but unfortunately very very dated. Hotel seems to be the local for the long haul truck drivers. Hence you are woken very early in the morning when the trucks are starting up / idling getting ready to roll out, also woken late at night when the trucks arrive.
Lovely staff, but the hotel does need an urgent refurbishment.
Definitely a 2 star hotel.
