Cobwebs,mould,dust,peeling paint, was what greeted us upon our arrival. We were in Unit 2 - two bedrooms, kitchen, lounge. It was not cheap enough to warrant living in substandard conditions. One weeknight for 5 people : $190 Avoid it.

We stayed at the Classic Motel over the weekend while going to Equidays. I phoned the reception to advise we would not arrive until well after reception closed. They did not have a problem with this and advised they would have the unit ready for us and the unit number. We arrived around 11pm and the key was on the...

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units for several nights. The unit was very clean and tidy with comfortable beds, a full kitchen and lounge with all the extras you could want for an extended stay including extra pillows, blankets, iron etc. The motel offers a free washing machine for guests use, washing lines and dryers. They also...

Although sheets and towels were clean the carpet and ceilings needed a good clean. Complimentary coffee, drinking chocolate,tea and milk were supplied Complimentary soaps (refillable containers) were empty. Spa was nice but required 4 hours prior notice before use.

Room was perfect - kitchenette in a side room with door leading to shower and toilet. Free WiFi...

Well it certainly was a different stay than we have had in Hamilton and by no means the best. The first unit (3) we were put into, had no working heatpump and there were cobwebs in just about every corner in the unit. We were subsequently moved to unit 2 which thankfully had some heating but was just as dirty...

$88.00, enjoyed my stay business trip over night. Competitive price in comparison to other motels. It had all the creatures of comfort. I enjoyed it and saved myself a heap of unnecessary dollars. I was last here in 1975 during a secondary school north island basketball tour. Not stunningly flash and modern. It was simple for my needs. I smiled...
