After a long flight, it's a great motel to flop before you begin your New Zealand adventure!

We have stayed here every year for about 15 years now. It's basic and comfortable and incredibly convenient after a long flight. There are restaurants in the area, the price is great, and you can stretch out and have a good sleep before picking up your rental car and venturing on the "other" side of the road driving!

This place has a free shuttle, we had an international flight in and then a domestic out in the morning so the free shuttle was great, the Vietnamese guy driving was super friendly and really helpful. The rooms are really tired though, and very old fashioned so don't go expecting anything nice.

Booked last minute as we needed overnight transit accommodation, and this was great. Basic rooms and amenities but it was cheap $102 for two (booked through wotif site) once we arrived the motel offered free shuttle to and from the airport.

Yes, this motel has seen better days but it's very good for the price paid which included 2 weeks' parking. We were well looked after by the friendly owners. Our unit was spotless, clean and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and good quality towels were provided. It was a bonus to have ranch sliders opening to the garden and...

This is definitely budget accommodation. My work team stayed in two rooms here for 2 nights. I felt very tight fisted for not splashing out on something a bit classier for a work trip! However, it was comfortable and we all had a bed each - the money we saved in accommodation will be used in other ways! Beds were...

isn't the flashiest place to stay and needs updating but our room had everything we needed and it's close to the airport. the road out the front is busy and was quite noisy and the parking isn't the best, very narrow and best for small cars.

The outside doesn't look appealing but generally it is great inside. Very good furniture and bathroom with kitchen. What I am not happy about is the bed cover, it is quite dusty. But I like it in general. There are plenty of parking in the yard.

Well yes, the property is a bit tired but it's clean and seems well managed. Seems that the new (18 months) business owners do their very best to maintain the units without much help from the elderly property owner. As a consequence in our room everything is clean, and working but tired. The room was well prepared for guests. Examples:...

We chose this accommodation because our usual accommodation couldn't accommodate the number of people travelling in our family and we had little children with us. We thought the playground would be useful but alas it was a little tired. The accommodation itself was comfortable but the décor and facilities a little dated. A little worry was the note saying to...
