Very affordable, clean, everything needed, very friendly people. We were there for 2 nights, myself, my sister, and my niece in Unit 2. Beds were comfortable, fresh towels provided for the second day. Only concern, as this was a wheelchair friendly unit when required the wet floor shower meant the whole bathroom floor got quite wet and was slippery- a...

Spent one night here and it was fine. Basically you get what you pay for. The welcome is warm and friendly and although the room isn't huge, it's comfy and we had a good night's sleep. There isn't an oven and hob here but there is a microwave and washing up liquid, cloth, tea towel - although the only sink...

Middle of summer... No fan in room but conveniently had a portable heater. 😬 Mosquitoes came in through open windows. Paint peeling.. Shower cubicle caving in. One tiny bottle of milk for whole week. Grubby communal kitchen. These are basics in my opinion. Bit more pride taken in the establishment is needed.

This was a great accommodation option for us as we were attending a conference at the AUT North Shore Campus. The service was efficient and simple. We were offered fresh milk when we arrived in case we wanted coffee in the morning. I didn't do the check-in or check-out so I can't comment on that bit. The room had new...

Stayed there for first time as usual options were sold out or highly priced due to high demand. Shabby room, paint peeling, vanity falling apart, stained old toilet seat etc. Met two people working there. Both unfriendly. How hard is it to say "was everything ok" " have a nice day" or even "goodbye " Wouldn't stay again

The room is much smaller than all other motels I have stayed in NZL. Yes parking is free but the allocated spot is very tight to get out. The facility and furniture are old and lack of maintenance, where 2 of the 3 ceiling lights were broken. There are microwave oven, water kettle and bar fridge, and nothing else for...

The motel had all your amenities that you would expect. A spacious room. The people were friendly enough. Oddly enough I had to pay upfront whereas the five star hotel I stayed to night before and most other motels wait until you leave. Like other reviews the cleanliness needs attention, especially the toilets, shower and sink areas. Marks were still...

Stayed in a studio unit. It had no kitchen sink, but was very well equipped otherwise. Quiet and well located. Only problems: I had trouble closing the ranch slider door and there were no security stays on the windows.

Stayed here for 12 nights and stayed in a one bedroom family unit. Our unit was clean although a little on the small side but certainly done the job we needed it to. The kitchen is adequate enough to cook a small meal although there's no oven. The bathroom is big enough although the shower is not the best. Bedroom...

Compared to the motor park down the street where we stayed last time, this was a huge improvement. While this is not your 5 star hotel, it is good enough for the basic traveler. I really appreciated the great friendly service of the manager on duty, the clean and good sized bathroom (although I cannot imagine a large person in...
