Nice Motel with lovely staff

Booking was for one night requiring an early check in. Owner/manager offered to drop us off to our wedding as well as let us into the room early even though staff were still cleaning. Really appreciated staff friendliness. Room was so clean and spotless. Stay was lovely - and close to local shops. Highly recommend staying here.

Waste of time

Room stank of smoke, had to clean everyday. Bed bugs. Will never stay there again. Husband was unhelpful and stressed.

Wouldn't have stayed here if we had another option

Pros: Location is good
Cons: Deep clean of rooms, including carpets, upholstery, bedding and drapes
Dirty room showing ongoing lack of cleanliness. We slept with the towels over the pillowcases just in case. Flies everywhere. Lots of road noise from Great South Road. Good location just off motorway and near Papakura heart, but would never recommend this to anyone but the desperate (as we were).

Overnight stay

Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: Nothing - we found the room fine for our purposes
Location: Didn't explore the immediate area. Drove to Matamata & Hobbiton straight after check-out.
Needed an overnight stay after a long flight, and booked this motel for it's convenient location i.e. we needed to head south of Auckland but didn't want to drive too far for the first night after a very early start and a long flight. Motel was clean and comfortable. Room was a little small but adequate for just an overnighter. Also, within 5 mintues walk of a supermarket so handy for getting something for dinner that night. We drove to Matamata and Hobbiton after check out and because this motel is south of Auckland, we had a smooth run continuing south without the hassle of having to battle Auckland traffic to get there. That in itself was worth the price!!

moisture leaking into cupboard under sink causing a musty smell. Sealant between bench and wall requires fixing correctly with primer and sealant to ensure seal is well bonded.

Handy to town, shops, playground etc. Upstairs bedroom for our children was extremely hot and we found the family unit a little pokey for a family of four. OK value for money. Slightly noisy given that it's on the main road. No curtain over front door and only blinds on the front meant the light came into the room from 5.30am
