The service was excellent, very pleasant reception, spacious motel unit, very clean, towels changed every day, also very quiet and a back lawn for our grand-daughter to play on. But the best feature was the location, we could walk to Pukekura part for the Festival of Lights. Also not far to drive to the local beach and super market. We have been staying there now for at least 6 or 7 years. Motel unit in need of a bit of TLC but no big deal.
