Motel is on a main road but once the windows were closed the noise was alot better and did not keep us awake even though we...

Awesome place, 5 mins walk to the stadium & so clean & simple. Perfect for a night away! The shower was amazing only thing that could've had more was some more shampoo & conditioner & maybe some hot choc or English breakfast tea :) nothing major though! Will be back

Based on a previous visit we booked a second stay at this motel. The unit was definitely not fully renewed/refurbished unlike our first stay which was excellent. The shower was very small and awkward to use and the water pressure was much to high to be comfortable. The room had a strange smell about very notice on first entry. The...

Stayed here recently and had a great room. Newly updated, with ample space and great kitchenette. Comfortable bed. Good location as well. Had a good location and parking onsite. Service was good. Only negative was that money was taken out of our card used to secure accommodation, but weren't aware of as we were expecting to pay on arrival with...

The motel which I stayed is quite, clean and everything was new ones. I loved the fast WiFi, air conditioned, big TV and Sky channels +50. It is good value for money. I highly recommend this motel, accommodation.

even though the motel looks a bit dated on the outside it is very clean and tidy inside. With off street parking. In a handy location & value for money. The beds were a little hard & uncomfortable though.

It was interesting to review this motel following our last visit and great review results. The standard is still very high and servicing the units is at a very good level. Obviously they maintain this standard continuously. The drawers, toilet seat and sliding door to the bathroom all have slow closing mechanisms which are usually only found in expensive accommodation.

Arriving at almost 3am from after a few delays elsewhere, it was great to finally get into a room! As this seems to be a family run location, I felt a little guilty waking someone up in the middle of a cold night, but was pleased to be greeted with a smiling face and a warm NZ welcome. The room...
