“Once it's ok to stay, but we won't return”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2010

We have stayed a night at Botany Motor Inn, the place is an average motor inn. The owner was helpful and kind with us. The room is small and averagely furnished. I think it was a bit over priced -didn't get the quality what I was expected for the money we have paid.

I stayed at the Botany Motor Inn with 2 colleagues for the purpose of a conference in the local Botany area. On arrival we found the female owner to be very pleasant and helpful, she assisted us with parking and told us about a few local attractions. Later on we were helpfully provided with more milk (as we had used it all) and assisted with using the wireless internet. The room was clean and had sufficient amenities. The only issue I had was being woken up a couple of times in the night due to traffic (as it is located on a busy road) but other than that it was a nice stay.

The amenities were average to okay and this would be fine if the lady (owner/operator) made you feel less like an inconvience than a person who pays her way.

She was most unhelpful and lacked knowledge when you asked her any questions. My husband helped another patron staying her with info on a rental car and we don't even live in NZ.

I won't be staying here again, and there are plenty of other motels in the area.

The facilities were average. Effectively, the room was large but not a warm environment and the single beds underneath the window were uncomfortable due to the draft coming through. It appeared to be clean.

The problem with this motor inn is the owner/operator. The woman woke us up early - we ignored as we were sleeping, came back half an hour later, opened the door which happened to be unlocked (due to the early morning departure of one of our party to go to the airport), she then peered through the window and came back yet again, accusing us of having an additional person staying which was entirely untrue and had been explained upon booking. We left at 1015am, 15 minutes after the ideal time frame at which time she accused us of having people coming and going...It's a motel!!!! This lady spoilt our stay through her complete lack of understanding of customer service. There were no electric blankets on the two single beds and small things like tissues were not included. The word officious springs to mind.
