Stayed for two nights in mid November on business. Good location close to eateries, and grocery shopping. Clean, dark room, comfy bed, decent internet and tv. Decent kitchen facilities, would definitely stay here again.

We had a very pleasant stay here, we were in room 13 , which is at the back of the property, which made it very quiet even though it's on a main road. The rooms are double glazed so makes the quiet and warm. There is a nice wee court yard outside this unit.The room was spacious and very clean.... More

While on a training seminar recently we stayed at this motel - reasonable prices, very clean and tidy, $5 continental breakfast available if ordered the day before and a reasonable distance to the city centre and other suburbs - recommended

Before booking this Motel, I read the reviews on Trip Advisor to help me make my decision as cleanliness is extremely important to me.

Really loved how quiet the room was when on such a busy road. Very clean and comfortable. Just had to be careful on the shower floor as we were in the accessible unit and it was a little slippery. Great value for a very comfortable , warm and quiet nights sleep. Receptionist was great.

This was our first motel in NZ. We then spent time in others while travelling. Motels are never idyllic but we booked a second time. An ideal location for the Riccarton shops and buses into the city. A warm welcome from Amanda.
