We had a quick look at our room and just took it as we wanted to be close to Papakura. Here is the list of issues: Window latch in toilet was broken so unit was not secure. Shower head was up side down and was dripping. There was black mold on the window sill and around the shower. Cans of food from previous person was left under sink along with takeaway container. Light in toilet did not work. Under the single been was a pair of shoes, used tissue and a toy. Shabby patched up switches and broken door. Very old and dated. Unit needed a good clean. Clearly signs of some long tern residents. Reading the review from 2 years ago about room 2 same issues. On checkout I tried to explain the problems and when I said about the shower, the lady oh yes we have the plumber coming today? I did not believe her and she was not interested in listening to me. We hardly ever write reviews but people need to know. Closest I have come to walking out and asking for a refund but we have family to attend to which is why we stayed.

Located south of city centre, small, compact self-catering unit with basic facilities. Clean & tidy but bed too soft for our liking. Local shops within 5mins walk for provisions. Motel location convenient to SH1.

Telephoned to enquire availability and was not greeted warmly, call disconnected abruptly when we made a tentative booking as we could not use overseas debit card. Lady phoned next day to hustle a commitment. arrived early to check out room as arranged. accepted room as adequate, charged the same price as we had paid the night prior for our lovely Gem. On closer inspection after check in cracks showed clearly. Shabby front desk and unwelcome greeting, no introduction by hostess. Bathroom very small and cramped Freezer frozen full. Rusted stovetop. Mold & Rust on all window sills Soap scum on shower screen. Water scalding hot - careful Grubby light switches. Entry to all units was grubby and untidy. Sink taps useless in Room 2, too close to wall and basin, can't turn on or put hands under tap to wash. Front is disheveled and untidy. Strong smell of spices or curry permeates the air in the room. In bringing some of these issues to the hostess I was met with a 'don't care' attitude, she did not comment or write any of these things down so I am doing it now. This place needs some love and a HUGE reduction in the price they charge. Way too overpriced for what you get.

We chose this motel because it had a 8.1 rating on booking.com. I see that it has since gone down to a 7.9. I am not surprised because it should be much lower. We booked the family unit for us and our adult son. When we arrived we were led to a very small studio room with an extra bed stuffed in the corner. When we quizzed the woman she told us that the toilet was blocked in the family unit so we couldn’t stay there. I still don’t believe this excuse - I think they double booked. The unit was small very basic and with dated décor. There was no table or chairs in the room. Why bother having basic cooking facilities then? I wouldn’t stay there again but it is probably okay for 1 or 2 people that have a limited budget.
