We had been staying at Host Group motels for 7 weeks because we found that they are a good standard and there uis a $100 discount for every twelfth night stayed.Shortlands was a pleasant enough stay but did not offer as much as previous stays.For example,at the
Teal Motel in Gisborne & Whitianga Beachside Resort, for $150 per night we had separate bedrooms, large living areas and a swimming pool - At Shortlands we had one living/bedroom, no pool for a charge of $168 a night. Admittedly,we did have a spa bath but were offered no choice and I would rather have not had it.We had pre-booked and were dismayed that the room was very stuffy and had not been aired. On the patio, the garden furniture was wet and grubby, from the previous night's rain and there was dirt & dead flies laying in the runner of the sliding doors. The rooms generally were comfortable and clean but not great value and the motel is positioned at the junction of 2 main roads - but we were not disturbed too much from traffic noise.
