Was disappointed with the accommodation. Very tired decor and stains on bed covers, mouldy curtains. Damaged blankets on beds. We will read reviews before booking any accommodation next time.$175.00 a night, not cheap.

Thank tgapoms

Stayed one night only. My room was spacious, warm (yes, they had left the heater on for me), quiet, dark curtains so no light came in, had a garden patio outside, well lit for working, hot shower and good towels. Service from staff was variable- I never met the same person twice. What I didn't like was the communal kitchen... More

Came her for a conference. I know my work needs to stick to a budget but this was below the line of acceptable. The whole place had a stale, damp smell. Conference room cramped and dark with old uncomfortable chairs. Positive - lots or parking, pool looked nice and staff were friendly. Wouldnt stay here though

Hotel owner was a creep! If he didn't recognize a person with you (even though we paid and had the right amount of people) he followed you to see where you were going. We checked out and he followed us out to the car and stared us down while we were leaving. We weren't loud guests or drunk or obnoxious... More

As it was waitangi weekend our options of accommodations were limited. We wanted to stay close to Kumeu, now we know better! We paid $169 pn and thought surely for that price it can't be too bad. It is! Both of the top blankets on the bed were really stained, and not the type of stain that didn't come out... More

a very average motel. Used the toilet in the foyer after we arrived while waiting for our room to be cleaned and it was filthy.Once in our room we picked a up drink bottle off the floor with juice in it so the clean wasn't that good.

To my expectations the motel was quite good.. Clean rooms and bathrooms. They managed us extrabeddings too immediately. Staff was cooperative and friendly. They offered us room services too which ws a bit easier to stay here.

The room itself was average at best. In desperate need of some maintenance but clean and functional. However, the basic facilities were severely lacking and let this motel down. -1 star for lack of power points accessible to the guest. I've stayed in all kinds of different places, and never once have I been forced to unplug all the appliances... More

“All the rooms were the same, Tiny, came with a queen bed and single bed, tiny bathroom and a bench with toaster and jug. no room to move at all. More like a hostel! Actually a hostel would probably have been cleaner!”

“All ground floor rooms. We were on the road front and had no problem with noise. The rooms that open out to the garden area cost more but I found the other rooms (where we were) was sufficinet for what we required”

“Avoid rooms at the front of the property as these are by the main road. The best rooms are along the wing to the back and which open onto the garden/pool area.”
