“Good Stop over place when touring New Zealand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Very clean and comfortable, with all the necessary facilities to eat in or dine out.
Good area to stop over when touring. We did not find the road noise a problem, although the motel is situated on main road. The staff were very kind and helpful.

Lovely, clean and a comfortable place to stay. The studio unit had everything you need for 2 such as a small dining table for 2, 2 seater couch, 2 person spa bath, small kitchen for cooking (no oven, but 2 hobs are there), etc. There is road noise, but this dies down later into the night once the town "goes to sleep" so is not such a big deal. Swimming pool looked nice and clean but did not use. Thanks for our stay Jan!

Stayed one night in a comfortable and clean unit with kitchen facilities. In contrast to some reviews we found the two ladies we dealt with to be friendly and helpful. Like most motels it is on the main road so traffic noise is a factor in the mornings, but it shouldn't come as a surprise. If you want a noise free experience you would not stay in a town on a main road. We were happy wi our choice and the owners restaurant recommendation.

We had a great stay in this motel. The only downside is the traffic noise but if you are there for work and up and about at business hours it is fine. Very clean and fantastic well equipped kitchen. Lovely staff too. Will happily stay again.

My mother and I arrived at the front desk and inquired about the room and cost. The motel rooms where higher than we expected. The front desk lady asked us what kind of budget we were looking for. I answered 90 to 100 nzd ( which is a good average price for twin rooms) at this time of the year ( may off season). The woman said that we should go to the backpackers up the road because "we are cheap backpackers" in a very arrogant and derogatory tone. No offense to backpackers but I though it was a pretty insulting thing to say in front of my 60 year old mother. So we ended up in the motel next-door. Very friendly woman within the budget and great rooms with great facilities!

Your response to our tariff indicated very definitly that you were not interested hence I did not offer to show you a unit and I do not justify that you state a price at what we should charge.There are travel guide books freely available in our country which give property details, star ratings and tariffs.
We accept everybody has a budget thus I asked you the question. I indicated two options within your price range one of these was a backpackers. It was not intended to be offending and you were not called cheap backpackers.

On arrival we were slightly concerned at the proximity of the main road, but it didn't bother us much. The rooms, even the bath room, were very luxurious. The unit itself was enourmous with modern decor and kitchen. My only niggle was the small window in my bedroom, it was a thin rectangular shape along the top of the wall. Either it was to keep the noise of the road out, or stop people looking in as it faced the courtyard, but it was a bit off putting waking up in a room with no window to look out of.

Even so, I would stay here again as it was perfect for touring the Coromandel Peninsula, and the quality of the rest of room more than made up for it.
