We didn't arrive till late, around 9pm, but called while we were traveling to advise, the staff were really friendly from the first phone call, and on arrival they were equally pleasant. The room was abb older style motel unit, but was not old style decor, it was possibly the cleanest motel unit I have stayed in. Everything was spotless. There was a train pass by around midnight, but it wasn't too bad, and I'm a light sleeper. We were about 15 mins late in checking out, but the cleaners had skipped our room. I kind of expected a knock on the door as a quick reminder, but they didn't even do that. We even apologised to the owner who was working with the cleaners and he said it wasn't problem, and we shared a couple of laughs and left in really good spirits.
I read through the other reviews after staying there and they didn't make sense, every bad thing people said, we found it to be the total opposite, so I wonder if those people had a bad day with bad weather or long tiring trips and took it out on their accommodation providers. Even their price is cheap in comparison with other places in the district.
Thanx for a really great sleep and friendly service, this is the sort of friendly welcoming that makes nz the awesome place we call home.
