We stopped off here for the White Island Tour (excellent) The room was a reasonable price room on main road with comfy bed, good shower, clean towels, good size TV and basic cooking facilities including kettle and microwave, tea and coffee provided. Ideal for short term stay

I was lucky to find a room in the town and even more lucky that it was this hotel. The owners were lovely and it was great to have a room with a separate kitchenette. The room was slightly retro but everything was very clean.

I'm all for cheap so when I saw the prices I wasn't too sure of what to expect. When I arrived and met the owners they were extremely professional and friendly. Rooms decor was abit dated but I was surprised at the cleanliness of everything. Down to the knives and forks being arranged side by side the level of detail...

The person in the reception is the rudest person you could ever expect in a hotel reception. We were leaving and it was 10.05am and this person came to our room, and knock in our door. We were about to leave and when I opened the door he entered the room and very rude say to me that I have...

Management response:

Mr Marcos you must be an honest hardworking person of your community to say such things? whether it was 5 minutes 10 or 15 minutes past checkout time is not the point, it is the understanding of all people no matter what colour, creed or ethnicity you are that there are rules and policies set in this world of ours...

Nice place to stay, so far have stayed twice. Charles the Motelier is awesome and nothing is a issue for him. Rooms and beds are always nice and clean. Lovely hot showers. See you next time Charles. By the way the motel is really close to all shops takeaways reastaurants etc.
