There is not much I can say to commend this motel. My room was clean and functional but very basic; the wifi was expensive; and the complimentary breakfast was barely worth ordering. I think the staff could have been more welcoming. I suppose the best...More
I dont like the service over there. The price was high, it's not clean and the receptionist was not really friendly. I stayed there 2 weeks and you have to pay for the internet. I had to spend $50 for 8G of internet. The bathroom...More

LisaM, Search back and find my review of the motel from Jan16. You'll see that I too arrived on a JetStar flight at around the same time and did not get to the motel until 01.00. I'll be doing the same this coming week... More
LisaM, Search back and find my review of the motel from Jan16. You'll see that I too arrived on a JetStar flight at around the same time and did not get to the motel until 01.00. I'll be doing the same this coming week - another flight to ChCh - and the motel has arrangements for you to collect the key when you arrive. They also left the lights on in our room - so we could see where we were going. Some good plus points for management. It is, of course, essential that you make this kind of arrangement - by informing them of what you are doing, time of arrival and more. Enjoy your time in Godzone then. All good things.
