The room stank badly of smoking. I suspect this wasn't the motel's fault as there no ash trays to indicate we were allocated a smoking room but it wasn't deoderised before we came in. pillows were very uncomfortable. On the plus side, it was great they accommodated an early check in and the facilities were clean.

Poor communication

Pros: Unit was clean and spacious.
Cons: Better communication especially if booking something specific like bed size.
Booked a king bed and had confirmation of such. Arrived and desk staff stated didn't have a king bed for us. No sorry, no discussion, just seemed to ignore us. Would have been nice to be told earlier so we could have booked a king bed elsewhere. We had a very soft queen bed, roll together and bounce - much like sleeping on a trampoline. Very uncomfortable and disappointing.

Really nice Hotel but grumpy staff - yes we where arriving late, but they where very inflexible and not accommodating ( which is unusual for NZ) made it clear - we would not be able to get in if we arrived after 2100!!
