We spent four nights here and loved it. Huge room and fabulous disabled access. My husband is in an electric wheelchair and there was nowhere that he couldnt access. Some motels offer disabled access, and they have no concept of what that should be. And we have been in some shockers! Here in N.Z and Australia. Great owners, handy location,...

We managed to negotiate a good rate and were delighted with the room we had. Two bedrooms huge lounge and bathroom. Everything was really clean. Only improvement could be a dishwasher. Otherwise service and location were great

I was so impressed with Harringtons. The owner went over and beyond on two requests that I had. He was even willing to take me to University as I couldn't find a park. I would highly recommend a stay here.

My husband and I booked at Harringtons for the two weeks before we could move into our new home, and chose the "Executive Spa" one-bedroomed unit. It proved to be spacious, warm and comfortable. The beds were amazing, with top quality linens. Free unlimited WiFi was brilliant as we both needed the internet for work in the evenings. The owners...

We arrived an hour before we could check into the room but we told the room was ready and we could check in. This is a first for us and was greatly appreciated. Very warm and friendly reception. The room had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Very clean and a pleasure to have stayed there.

I stayed recently on an overnight business trip to the area. The room was basic but the free wifi was fast and the staff were friendly and helpful. All rooms are single level with car parking right outside and the location is good. I walked less then 400m to get to the gardens and river walk, which was light relief...

We were in town for a function and Harringtons was very well located for the event. The room was comfortable and had free wifi - always a plus. We were woken twice in the night by vehicle noise but that might just be exuberant locals on a stock car night. Across the road is the Victoria Esplande and it's just...
