Budget Hotel

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Feb 2019via mobile
Is a good budget motel that probably needs some work on it but you get what you pay for. Bathroom appeared tired and old but functional and provided a good hot shower. Bed was comfortable but unfortunately the room walls are very thin so you hear what your neighbours are taking about and we were also unlucky to have a person next to our room who snored the whole night which didn’t make it for a pleasant night. Overall if looking for somewhere cheap and you are a heavy sleeper give the place a go, it just wasn’t for us.

Reviewed 8 January 2019

New owners have just taken over the motel and it is obvious that the previous owners have let the place run down prior to selling. There was a stale smell as soon as we walked in the door. The curtains are thin, faded and held up by a piece of string. The doona cover was depressing. The bathroom fixtures were chipped and broken and the grout was falling out. Despite the small size and the run down atmosphere we had a great night’s sleep. The new owners are friendly and accommodating and with their energy and enthusiasm will have the place up to scratch in no time.

Was what we paid for, room was on the smaller side but it did the job we were after.
The parking is very tight, a few big 4wds and it makes for an interesting squeeze.
No airconditioning either, which was interesting and made for a couple of stuffy nights. the ceiling fan was a godsend!
staff were lovely
great location, close to everything

We stayed here last Saturday night. The owners were very helpful, friendly and happy ((maybe that was something to do with NZ winning the rugby union the night before haha).
The room was a basic motel room but was spotlessly clean with clean, crisp white sheets. We both enjoyed a good nights sleep.
We would definitely stay here again. It was very good value without spending a fortune.

The room was very small and there was only soap, no other amenities at this tired 1970s establishment. Even the pool and surrounds had seen better days. We were asked to check out early, as the place was "busy" but when we hurried out in the morning, not a cleaner was in sight.
