This is my second visit to Park Lodge - 1st being a few years ago and I remembered it being very basic, but acceptable. This visit, a two years on, it was a shame to see that the owners obviously do not care for their property - the pool and children playground were still not in working order - should...

Motel is dated and very small. It was clean but we were very disappointed with it overall. The kitchen area is minimalistic and no toaster provided. Nowhere to wash dishes. Did not like having to fill kettle from bathroom sink especially with such a tiny bathroom . Hot water supply runs at a trickle. Towels more the size of hand...

Had to book this on a short notice as others had no vacancy. This motel is just horrible. Dirty, old, noisy! Bedding looks like it wasn't washed at least a month and bed spreads were probably never washed. I could's sleep and had to get outside few times to get fresh air as I had problems breathing , that's how...

Our couple stayed this place on the way to Waitomo Cave. It was late evening and a bit chilly and we were exhausted. But when we got there and welcomed by the warm welcome, all the fatigues we had were dismissed like snow-melting. The host and hostess were so friendly and kind enough to end a day. They introduced us...

We (3 friends) survived 1 night simply because we had to but I wouldn't recommend anyone else stay here. The place is grotty to say the least. I doubt it's had any maintenance work in the past 20 years! Would've rather kept our $109 & slept in the car. The place should be demolished or at least spruced up to...

Described as "park like" surroundings. More likely overgrown and untended. Rooms are very poor. Brand new tv which was good. Reasonably clean, but for $93 not good. Certainly a repaint would help a little, bug backpackers rooms are better for less money. We booked through a website. Not again without at least inspecting the room! Our fault I guess. Avoid...

Despite booking a "family unit" which we were assured over the phone and webpage would include a separate room for the kids, on arrival we were put in a studio unit with 5 beds. The room was clean, but in a terrible state of disrepair. Appliances, including a heater were outdated and featured exposed wiring. Beds were uncomfortable and the...
