The outstanding feature was however was the friendly, caring, excellent service. This included being dropped to the course I was attending at the hospital. If you need accommodation...

The one bedroom unit was brilliant; quiet, warm, brilliant shower, clean and spotless. Service was helpful and friendly. Its location adjacent to the hospital made it so easy to walk to and fro easily, saving on car-park hassles. Would recommend it highly.

We had a family member in Waikato Hospital so the location was excellent. All the staff were extremely friendly and super helpful. The rooms had everything we wanted and needed. Our only concern was that there seemed to be a design fault with the shower as the water tended to flood the bathroom floor. However this was only a very...

Currently staying here while my Dad is in hospital, they can't do enough for us, even dropped me up to the hospital so I made it in time before Dad went in to surgery. Very handy to everything, spotless modern rooms.

We chose this motel for a one night stopover after a trans-Tasman flight. Spotless room and the motel is positioned only a minute away from Highway 1. Excellent service from the owner who even took the time to drive us into town to show us dining recommendations. No hesitation to use on our next visit.

This motor lodge was easily the best buy of our entire vacation - it was clean, spacious, convenient, and the Wi-Fi was blazing fast (and uncapped)! There really isn't anything special about the location or the rooms themselves, but the cleanliness and modern feel made up for the lack of a view out the windows. Would definitely consider staying again...
