Good wifi, onsite facilities included gym and spa. Friendly, helpful reception. Comfortable bed, good pillows and linen. Very good value for money ( at the price we paid)....

Thank you, we appreciate your feedback and this extremely kind review. We are very glad you enjoyed your room minus the fact that people can walk by which unfortunately is unavoidable. It is great that you enjoyed your room which we try to provide a home away from home. We hope you venture our way again soon. Safe Travels- Kara...

for the price it was fine. I found out after we got there that there was a $50.00 fee to cancel . this is immediately after you book the room. You have the choice to stay at another time and have the fee applied to your room but NO mention of this was up front. I spend a lot of...

Very well maintained motel within 5 minute walk of city centre with tons of restaurants and pubs. Ample parking, laundry facilities available and fresh milk provided on arrival. We had a very well equipped 1 Br apartment with balcony overlooking city and hillsides. 25 minute walk to Forsyth Barr stadium. Would highly recommend.

Not sure this place is actually a secret, but I would like to keep it to myself!

This was a first: scalding hot shower water! Located on the harbour, it's a quiet area, centrally located. While the room was small, it overlooked the docks, and the twin beds were comfortable. Lighting was poor.

Stayed two nights for a wedding in the area Loved the ground-level entrance on the harbour side of the property. The mini kitchen was great. All was clean. Didn't have time to try the pool, but hope to next time. Front desk staff--very helpful. They also recommended an area dog sitter who was super.
