Property condition

1/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Linen smelled musty/unclean and had stains on it. Pillows stank of stale body oils. We paid upfront, but didn't stay... It was a last resort as all hotels/motels had been booked out for Labour Party conference. Thankfully someone took pity on us at an amazing B & B half an hour out of Whanganu; after much searching. This motel/caravan park was the worst I've experienced; even taking some 3rd world countries into account.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    There appeared to be a lot of gang members standing around drinking. The police were in attendance. Not suitable for families.

    Not at all value of money, would consider this hotel as a last option.

    basic motel - handy to town

    gloomy room smelt of cigarette smoke - stale air - noisy occupants in other rooms

    Pros: handy to town and shopping centre

    Location: close to shops and walk ways
