Really good hotel, great comfy nights sleep and very cosy room. The only disappointment was the very average reception staff, the lady seemed more interested in chatting to someone else behind the desk than actually serving the guests waiting to check in. If not for her poor performance, would give this hotel a 4-4.5 stars :)

We were dissappointed with the aspect of our room. We thought the motel was near a substantial river but it was a tidal stream and both evening and morning it was barely a trickle in basically a pretty ugly river bed

Hello Guest, Thank you for your review. The Tidal Maitai river was a substantial highway for boats in the olden days. It offers beautiful high tides where the water laps against your balcony gardens. We are sorry the tide was not in for you on this occasion. We hope you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards
