Our first impressions walking down the drive to the motel reception made our hearts sink with a very faded and tired sign on the road frontage. However our fears were quickly allayed with friendly staff and an exceptionally clean room with beds for 5 adults. This motel is not 5 star but caters for people going to a show or... More

What a great place to stay at, specially if you are going to the AMI stadium. It is really walking distance! Our room was clean, neat and tidy with everything we needed. Practical etc. My only complain, and only because I'm nit-picking, is that the water pressure needs a little bit of work in the shower. Washing long hair does... More

We have stayed here before and although the complex is not 5 star, it is warm comfortable and very handy to Horncastle Arena. We had a very late arrival and had asked the receptionist to put on a heater etc, - arrived to a warm room, warm bed and a very welcoming note .

I'd been kind of looking for a reason to stay here again. Iron Maiden's concert at Horncastle arena was the perfect reason. It's not a 5 star hotel but it is massive value for money. The next night in Dunedin I paid $26 more for a place that was not quite as good as here. It's clean, the fixtures and... More

This motel gives the appearance of having been built in the sixties, with dull decor and old style fixtures. When we arrived, there were several small annoyances such as a light that didn't work, and no tea towels. However to their credit, these things were fixed promptly. The unit itself was generally comfortable although our double beg sagged a bit... More

Allocated a room with a really strong chemical smell, like industrial deoderiser, literally took my breath away. Bathroom though appeared clean had a strong urine smell around the toilet. Staff however were extremely helpful, friendly and polite. We are very thankful that they allowed us to cancel our booking with no charge.

The Econolodge has changed ownership and everything has gone down hill since. No hair dryer in unit. T.V. at one sound level (load). Kettle wouldn't turn off by itself. No shampoo. No parking outside unit.
