Yes, it is tired and badly needs a spruce-up in places, but for anyone who wants a clean place to put their head down for the night, close to the airport and at a reasonable price, this is ideal. Only a short walk to Kilbirnie shopping centre for breakfast, too.

This place was great value for money. $119 for the night 2 adults 2 kids - couldn't find anything cheaper closer to the airport. Staff were friendly and helpful and we kept our car out the front for the 10 days while we were away in auz. Clean and tidy rooms.

Self contained small rooms in handy, but out of the way suburban location. Close to airport, supermarket, beach, bus, with everything you might need, plus free parking. Clean rooms. Highly recommended.

With check in available until 9pm we were surprised when we arrived at 7.00 to find no-one in attendance. We rang the number on the door and left a message, and when we rang again in fifteen minutes the manager answered and told us how to access our room. Free wi-fi in theory was available but we had no way... More

Absolutely loved the shower water pressure. The room is quite compact, the toilet is even more. Cleanliness of the room was all right. Had the things I expected in the room. Room servicing was done quite okay. First day had a decent usable towel but the second day both used and unused towels were gone and replaced with a towel... More

We were looking for a pet friendly overnight stay prior to our ferry crossing - this place has mixed reviews but we found it was all we needed (I will admit to second thoughts when we pulled up but don't let the outside put you off!).

25 year old male (solo) stayed 2 nights for the super rugby final (4-5th July). I can't remember which room but it was up stairs. I came up to wellington late afternoon (my bad). I arrived to the Motel in the evening to no one at reception. No trouble as there is a number to call. Owners arrived impressively quickly.... More

Was a very short stay (thankfully). Booked a single room and it was like a luxury backpackers room. It was the size of a room in caravan, wouldn't want to stay there for more than a night! I'm sure the double rooms are bigger, well I'd hope so! Milk wasn't in the fridge either but luckily I didn't use it.
