“Nice and Comfortable”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Stayed her form couple of time in April 2013 and 2014. good and convenient place to stay. Good price. Rooms at the back are good noise proof. Cafes and restaurants are handy. Nice shared kitchen on the premises. I would definitely go again.

Our workers need accommodation at short notice all round the country. Our guy who stayed here last night said to me to definitely give this place a tick. He said it was great. Very helpful with the booking too,

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of nights while she played in a golf tournament.

The rooms were clean, tidy and modern, with a heat pump - which was great as it was below freezing outside, but very comfortable in the room.

The hotel offered free unlimited wifi - which was great, as I had to work. I can't believe there are still hotels in NZ which do not offer free unlimited wifi - it is always a major selling point for me.

The shared kitchen/dining area worked really well for us. Ensuite facilities were all clean and worked well. We were in a room at the back, so traffic really wasn't an issue.

There were no additional charges for using a credit card, which I think are ridiculous in this day and age.

The owners were really friendly and helpful and I could not fault them.

We'll definitely stay there again.

Had no problem with our room and kitchen/bathroom facilities however service from the owners themselves was appalling! No friendliness at all which made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. I do hope they have changed the owners as I can now see good recent reviews.

We stayed here one night after a visit to the Waitomo region before heading up to Coromandel Peninsula. The hotel was in a great location, easy to walk around the town for dinner. The free parking was nice, as well as the free breakfast. The room was clean and spacious. Our room was a little chilly but the electric blankets on the bed were nice and were sufficient to keep us toasty while sleeping.

We stayed for three nights and thought it was value for money. If you don't like traffic noise this is not the place for you, we got used to it by the second night. The staff and host we all vey friendly and the room although basic was very clean and was serviced daily. The communal kitchen was clean and tidy. It's a great location for shopping and cafes and ample parking. Free wifi was a bonus.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a room away from roadside.

Everything was lovely and tidy, and very clean. I enjoyed being able to sit in the communal kitchen/dining instead of being stuck in our room. We also enjoyed a free upgrade to a room with an ensuite, which was a real bonus and appreciated. We had a roadside room and even with the window open the traffic didn't keep us awake. Hosts were lovely, looking up directions for us on the internet, and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: If you need a quieter room, ask for one at the back, although traffic noise didn't bother us.
