We booked ahead having read the Trip Advisor reviews and decided to push the boat out and have a spa room. We were very dismayed when we arrived. The motel is 2km out of town, and felt far from being superior. We found it dated, dreary and down at heel. The spa bath is a single bath of probably 80s vintage with 4 jets, and from the vantage point of sitting in the tub you had a view of the mildewed silicone round the bath, and the chipped door panels of the washbasin vanity unit.
The coating on the Teflon frying pan was damaged to the point of putting it beyond use, but to be fair,, the people at reception went home to get their own pan to replace it.
In 7weeks of travel around NZ this this was the 2nd most expensive accomodation, but by far the worst. They did listen to our comments, and reduced the payment.
On the positive side, we were near the office and the free Wi-Fi worked well.
