Very poor hosts. Couldn't short out the booking which was paid for on Hotelsone website for nearly an hour. Keep telling me about their problems which I didn't need to know. Room had a very strong smell of smokers so bad I couldn't get a decent nights sleep. Office supposed to be open at 8am but no one around to take the key so left it in the room.Definitely not be returning.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled solo

Really enjoyed our Hawkes Bay half marathon race weekend while staying in this well priced and clean motel. Everything worked and enough space in the rooms for a family of four. Friendly and helpful staff.

We paid a very economical price so we got what we paid for. It was a dated room and was a very average room. Good if you're travelling on a budget. The Wi-Fi worked really well which is always a bonus.

Very welcoming on arrival ( even tho we were two hours early ). The room was comfortable and clean - the cleaning staff are very friendly as well. Nothing was too much trouble. Pool nice and cold - great for a hot Hawkes Bay day. Will recommend and definitely stay there again.

A really great place to stay for a week, getting in / out of the motel was really easy, towards the centre of the city.
The room was really good, high pressure water which was good, Gas heated so never run out. Food courts not far away to get the fast food or the supermarket was also near by.
Room was nice and warm during the winter nights without any heaters going. Room was nicely supplied with the items needed for the stay.
Owner was very friendly and freely gave advise when asked a question or two.
Plenty of parking for the car as well.
Room rates were very reasonable.

Stayed: July 2016
