Room was surprisingly large with plenty of room to move around in. Highlight is definitely the bathroom with the enormous spa bath. Service was very friendly both from reception as well as room service. Location is a 5 min drive from main CBD, unfortunately not too much within 10 or 15 minutes walk. Wifi was very reliable and good speed....

Spa and room were very good. Customer service skills were great but heater was not good and room was a bit cold. Was worth the money and not much noise.. A bit of a walk form town. Must say I would like to stay again

My partner was booking this motel when he received a call a family member has only a few hours to live and ended up putting the booking through for the wrong dates on booking.com accidentally. I tried to explain this to the guy on reception at Malone's who laughed and didn't have any care in the world at all. I...

Had a change of plans due to impending storm so needed accommodation quickly for one night. the motel was picked at random. pleasantly surprised room upgrade no charge, room clean and tidy spa pool worked couldn't ask for more up and away next morning hassle free. Because of the storm/flood warning we thought that prices would be raised,we were satisfied...

Really enjoyed our stay at Malones this weekend gone. We found that Malones offered a comfy bed in a warm room with an in-room spa. And then when I returned the keys they gave us a box of chocolates. Awesome thanks!

Malones Motel sits on outskirts of town, room exactly as pictured and comfortable. Although rooms had hot tub we didn't use it as only there for one night and we did 'Maori Experience ' that night which was amazing. Good location and service, room had everything we needed for our stay.

We simply couldn't find fault with this property! Everything was spotlessly clean, the room was warm, there was an adequate supply of tea and coffee etc and the spa was delightful. The only negative is we only stayed here one night! We just have to say we were amazed when upon checking out at the end of our stay, the...

Handy location and easy to find. Very friendly staff, helpful too. Spa was empty and couldn't be bothered spending the time to fill it. Had a great sleep though. Was a little dated. Very clean rooms to stay in.

This motel was chosen without checking TripAdvisor first, big mistake. Ok location and first appearances weren't too bad until you look more closely and see tattered flags in porch area, old haphazard decorative lights in same area, loose wires and a lack of maintenance in general. Our unit itself had clean sheets and towels and a comfy bed, but that's...

Spent 2 nights, staff friendly and helpful. The rooms had decent space but with no air conditioning a little warm.Would benefit from the bathrooms being updated. The spas were private but were useable only in 15 min segmentswhich was disappointing.
