Cottage like feel. Older type motel and decor. Very comfortable. Separate sitting room and bedroom. Parking at the door of unit. Kitchen in unit well equipped. Friendly staff. Laundry functional but needed a clean.

This hotel is old, tired and generally unpleasant. The whole place needs a miracle overhaul; including the guy working the Reception Desk. It is cheap, but should be even cheaper considering the location and decore of the room. We stayed one night and stayed out as late as possible so we spent less time in the room. My Hint: Stay...

The room in question was redecorated 4 months ago has new upvc double glazed windows, a new heat pump, new bedding and a refitted kitchen, our location is at the end of a cul-de-sac away from traffic, all you hear is birdsong, so I am struggling to imagine what was really wrong.

Booked here because our first choice was fully booked. Very nice motel. Very clean. Lovely comfortable beds. Free unlimited WiFi. Very convenient location as we wanted to see the Taranaki Festival of Lights which we could walk to. Would definitely stay again. Very reasonable rates.

The motel was clean and quiet, and reasonably well equipped. We suffered from noisy guests in an adjacent room as the walls are not very thick, but the location itself is very quiet, backing onto a large bush reserve. The queen size bed was a little saggy but comfy for all that. Our two bedroom unit was good value. There...
