An old chain hotel turned into a motel. Nice rooms but that is about it. Parking the out front only, as the side car park is closed off due to being full of garden clippings, weeds and trimmed branches all over the ground, which have been there a while. No real gardens to speak of at all. The outside needs...

Was disappointed with the accommodation. Very tired decor and stains on bed covers, mouldy curtains. Damaged blankets on beds. We will read reviews before booking any accommodation next time.$175.00 a night, not cheap.

Stayed one night only. My room was spacious, warm (yes, they had left the heater on for me), quiet, dark curtains so no light came in, had a garden patio outside, well lit for working, hot shower and good towels. Service from staff was variable- I never met the same person twice. What I didn't like was the communal kitchen...

Came her for a conference. I know my work needs to stick to a budget but this was below the line of acceptable. The whole place had a stale, damp smell. Conference room cramped and dark with old uncomfortable chairs. Positive - lots or parking, pool looked nice and staff were friendly. Wouldnt stay here though

Hotel owner was a creep! If he didn't recognize a person with you (even though we paid and had the right amount of people) he followed you to see where you were going. We checked out and he followed us out to the car and stared us down while we were leaving. We weren't loud guests or drunk or obnoxious...

As it was waitangi weekend our options of accommodations were limited. We wanted to stay close to Kumeu, now we know better! We paid $169 pn and thought surely for that price it can't be too bad. It is! Both of the top blankets on the bed were really stained, and not the type of stain that didn't come out...

a very average motel. Used the toilet in the foyer after we arrived while waiting for our room to be cleaned and it was filthy.Once in our room we picked a up drink bottle off the floor with juice in it so the clean wasn't that good.

To my expectations the motel was quite good.. Clean rooms and bathrooms. They managed us extrabeddings too immediately. Staff was cooperative and friendly. They offered us room services too which ws a bit easier to stay here.

“All the rooms were the same, Tiny, came with a queen bed and single bed, tiny bathroom and a bench with toaster and jug. no room to move at all. More like a hostel! Actually a hostel would probably have been cleaner!”
