“Location & friendly service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great place to stay if you need to be visiting friends/family at the hospital the closest motel to hospital 2mins up the road. I stayed for business and the units are very tidy, comfortable and warm. Beds are firm and linen is very nice. Definitely be staying again on my many trips North as now know what to expect. Hosts are friendly and helpful showing me the quicker route into town (which isn't that far away) Very knowledge about the city and surrounding area. There is even a house on site for a family or groups which is handy.

Booked here over the phone and had no problems at all.

Very clean but in dire need of maintenance and up dating. A mixture of eighties decor, mix match repair.

Lovely people, very helpful, pity about the out dated and run down environment.

We booked over the phone, after an initial confusion with the booking, our rooms where sorted very quickly and with no fuss, the rooms are clean and tidy. The plunger coffee is a nice touch. The hosts are really helpful and Friendly. The beds are very firm good for some but if you like a soft bed this might not suit.

Fantastic, friendly service! We had to urgently travel to Whangarei to visit a family member in hospital late at night. We arrived at 2am and they still woke up to give us the key. Thanks very much :)
