I have worked in the visitor industry in NZ for nearly 25 years and have seen thousands of motel rooms. This was the worst motel ever!! First they stuffed up the Wotif booking and didn't have my room. Then, the room stunk - literally, it was very dirty, mouldy on the walls, ceiling, curtains and shower curtain. Disgusting!! This motel...

Sai Motels is well situated on the Great South Road so within easy drive or public transport ride to the city centre and major places of interest. The staff were very friendly and the booking process fine although we did not receive confirmation of booking and had to phone them after booking to confirm they had received our booking. We...

Hi Bob, First of all thanks for complimenting our staff and for the effort you have taken to provide your inputs here. As you have rightly noted we are in the process of renovations and there are many gaps to be filled ongoing. Just a quick correction here ; we provide 200 MB free for the stay and am surprised...

Stayed last year with my family. Close to alot of the shops. Decor was a bit old, and felt a little bit claustrophobic with not being able to open the window, but I guess that's what you pay for the price. The steps were a bit narrow with getting luggage up and down the tight steps. Friendly staff, only stayed...

Hi ! Appreciate the effort you took to review us and we are aware that due to double glazed windows in some rooms , which were installed to cut the noise out, some guests feel uncomfortable. Please, bear with us and soon we will have new, refurbished rooms as we are in the process of renovations currently. Please, do give...

This was a surprisingly nice hotel. The staff were really friendly and went out their way to make us feel comfortable. The rooms have all the required facilities. Shower was nice and hot. the room is dated, but that was not a bother to me as it was a good nights sleep. parking can be a problem if the hotel...

The unit was very tidy and the staff were friendly and helpful. The motel is in a good location, close to supermarkets, shops and fast food outlets, and around 20 minutes away from the central city (off peak hours). The staff made me feel very welcome and I would definitely recommend Sai Motel.

My husband, daughter & i stayed there for 2 nights. We found our family unit very tidy & spacious. Due to my husband having a disability they gave us a carpark right outside the room & then put a orange cone in parking space when we went out to reserve it. Staff were really friendly & would bend over backwards...

I stayed for a one night and found the motel very affordable and for the price, it came with extremely good facilities like heat pump, sky channels, free tea/coffee in the room and handy to business area around. The cleanliness was far above than many budget motels within similar price range. I would definitely recommend Sai for a quick stop...

We had the misfortune of staying here for a night. Booked three rooms. Booked family room with two queen beds. Got a queen and a single. Carpet stunk of vomit. Had a over powering smell of cleaning product to cover vomit smell and wet carpet. One blanket on each bed. When each room asked for extra towels, we were told...

Hi Taruna Thanks for taking the time to review and providing us with your feedback. We regret your stay with us was not pleasant but we would like to clarify here that none of us our rooms have two queen beds. We can only offer one queen and one single bed in our family rooms.

We spent one night in this motel on our last day in New Zealand before we headed to Australia the following day. For this short stay, it was sufficient. The room was clean and the service was good.
