Had a good night's sleep at The Northerner after a long motorcycle ride up from the West coast.
The helpful staff allowed us to store the bike safely inside the building.
Memorable decor. Great spot to stay before heading to the top of new Zealand.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled as a couple

Yes the decor is dated, but it is still a lovely place to stay. The staff were lovely, the room was clean and comfy. The water pressure in the shower was awesome. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well.

Only down side was the television channel options were a bit limited, but still watchable.

(2nd time we have stayed there)

Room Tip: We chose the premier room

Here with ToNZ so not chosen ourselves and no idea what it cost as we paid for a package. Wow this place still thinks it's 1972 or thereabouts.

Furnishings look original. Carpet so faded by window it's probably also original. They have however added a telephone and the cable plugs into the wall just where the pillow is for one side of the bed. No I am not joking. We had to move the bed so that it didn't stick into my head/back while in bed.

No hairdryer supplied.

Definitely wouldn't come here by choice.

Even you open the door and window before sleep to let the smell go away, they will still come back at night when you sleep. And the smell will leave on your clothing. If I had another choice, I would definitely go to other places
One star is for the receptionist, they are kind.

Cannot say too much about this motel but it smelt, it was dismal, more like a sad retirement home! It needs a re-vamp or closing down. I found no service . Yes they cleaned the bed , but i wouldnt sleep on it. Two nights in Faulty Towers !
