One night stay here - surprised by the size of the room, plenty of space to spread out - in fact ours was a two bed room with a good size kitchenette. Good parking, friendly staff and clean and quite comfortable. No air conditioning or insect screens. Older style motel which has undergone some alterations in the past, but still...

We were greeted by a bright, clean room with all the facilities we were expecting. A quiet location, but close to the shops, the peaceful night's sleep was much appreciated - and it all came at a very reasonable price for such a well equipped room.

This place is right on the edge of town as you drive in. Very friendly greeting and check-in. Loads of parking near each room. Very quiet location. Most rooms are in a terrace type set-up. We were in Room 12 which was more of a detached studio. Very clean, very comfortable with chairs inside and on decking. Very comfortable bed....

A very clean, large, and well stocked kitchenette 2 bedroom unit in a quiet location. Host, Paula, was attentive and outgoing with good suggestions for places to eat. I only gave it 3 stars because it is a dated property. Convenient to grocery store, main street, and restaurants.

Paper thin walls in this older style motel creates a very unpleasant stay. Basic rooms are expensive with poor facilities . Despite the room being reasonably clean the linen smelled of body odour, probably lack of washing detergent. Water pressure extremely low gives terrible shower. Disappointing for N.Z.

As soon as I arrived I was greeted with a smile and Paula could not have been anymore helpful giving me a map with the local super market aswell as recommended dinning spots. We had room 16 which was the last at the end meaning we only adjoined with one other room. Having stayed in the city on our previous...

This was a nice, clean and spacious hotel with a friendly management team. Location and value were also good. However, it was a hot night with no air conditioning. The bed was also way too soft and we woke up with back aches. These two negatives are the reason for the reduced rating.

One bedroom apartment that fit 4 adults easily. Full kitchen, great beds, very clean and quiet. 5-10 min walk to stores and food. the manager was not very helpful. If we had questions it seemed a bother. We did love the room though. Everything closes early in the area but the Cosmo hotel had great food.

Check in we were greeted politely, but I wouldn't say friendly, and given milk and a map of town with nearest supermarket circled and recommended Denniston Dog for dinner. She forgot to give us the key so a trip back to reception was required. Unit was 2 bedroom with a extra single bed in lounge. Weather was terrible and the...

Hi there, Pleased you enjoyed our very clean and good sized rooms. So sorry I forgot to give you your key, guess we all forget things every now and then with it being our busy season, things can get forgotten.

Clean, spacious typical motel building where you park in front of the door to your unit. My only complaint is the use of overpowering air freshener/room deodorizer. It is so strong it is nauseating. The sheets also smell strongly of fragrance (and not in a good way). NZ itself has such fresh clean air that it's a shame to cover...
