The room was very clean but very small. Ideal for a 1 night stay, but we were travelling around New Zealand and had a lot of luggage which had to be kept in the car. Lovely lady on reception. Would recommend paying a little extra for a bigger room.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Amenities
Disappointed to find no milk in the fridge, rooms really need black out blinds as exterior lights make the rooms very lite up at night - curtains are very light in colour and don't block out the light. Found floor in the kitchen to be not cleaned under the table - something sticky on the floor, shower also could have been cleaner. Things like 1 wine glass was also disappointing. Nice relaxing time had in the spa - bonus!

Nice enough room, the motel is very dated and could use an overhaul. The main reason for my low scoring is the actual motel surroundings.. Junkies and drunks everywhere.
