New Zealand motels are, in my experience, unique. They are much more like holiday units and provide cooking facilities as well as all the standard things one expects at a motel.
Broadway Lodge is a good example of the genre. Everything you could want in the room; and nothing you don't need. Our rooom was a little spartan in the furniture area with only one easy chair so that one of us had to sit on one of the single beds which are also in the main room. This area also has the TV (limited Sky) and kitchen. My wife cooked a lamb roast on the first night so you can see it was well set up.
There is a separate bedroom with queen bed and of course a bathroom.
WiFi is available but we were charged $5 for the privilege. Worked well though.
It's right on the main road so there is some traffic noise (and train too) but that settles down at night and isn't a major disturbance.
