I have stayed at many motels in NZ and have rarely given any motel a thumbs-down evaluation. Every motel has been excellent BUT THE ALPHA MOTEL has been EXCEPTIONAL...it had 'cream' on an extremely homely cake! it all started at the Reception, where I have never experienced such a quality and warm reception by the Manager. It was like meeting an old friend! The reception itself was a professionally clean environment often not present in other motels I have stayed at. I could compare it to a Hilton or Ramada. The rooms were likely 'above class.' As a frequent motel user, I am accustomed to a level or degree of quality that meets a minimum standard. But at the Alpha, it was more than a notch above its neighbouring competitors.
