When we arrived there was still food (old food) in the fridge and it didn't smell nice. The man in charge was filling in for others. He was horrified that this had been overlooked and cleaned it up quickly. If you have people with walking difficulties I wouldn't recommend this Motel. My mother struggled to get up the stairs Overall,...

We thoroughly recommend this motel. Large spacious units well equipped, very clean, unlimited wifi ( the most generous we experienced in a travelling in the South Island) a relaxed efficient host. No complaints at all and our dog was made very welcome . Convenient setting.

I am amazed that in a city that has such a high turnover of visitors throughout the year, that this motel could get away with being so tired. Although clean, there was no attention to detail. Basic and undrinkable sachet coffee, couch covers wearing through, sagging mattress and no doors on the wardrobes. Very strange. Although not the fault of...

This motel is slightly odd it's like a throwback to the 60's with the way in which it is built. Near student village which can be of putting. However the chap who runs the place very nice and gave us some award winning cheese

Although building a little tired. From check in to departure felt very welcome. Motel was clean, comfortable, slept well but would recommend ear plugs , just incase as you are in student ville. Motel well situated to University. Great eating places in close proximity.

Our unit was very very clean. The decor is tired but that doesnt matter at all as the tariff was very reasonable, cleanliness is important and we had everything we needed. Management friendly, helpful. and flexible when we had an unexpected extra guest to stay.Nice and close to town. We would not hesitate to stay again.

We thank Wayne the Manager and maybe Owner of the motel for making our...

We booked this motel for 4 nights for two people. Older styled Motels but in tidy condition. On arrival we found a dirty towel still in the bathroom. The motel supplied 1 small cake of soap & a sachet of shampoo & conditioner & 1/2 a roll of toilet paper for our 4 night booking. The daily service consisted of...

The room was dirty and the facilities really old. Badly in need of an update. Carpet stained, furniture felt sticky and curtains needed replacing. Bathmat and hand towels taken after the first night and not replaced. A very disappointing motel. Would not stay here again.
