Basic Motel with everything required. Unfortunately the Motel made an error with our booking and instead of getting a studio spa unit I got a standard studio unit for the same price which was slightly annoying. We did like the Sky box so could pause and rewind which you don't get at all motels, but the Kitchen was very small with minimal basic utensils, very old stove, no salt or pepper. The toilet was put between a wall and the shower and as a big guy I couldn't fit on it properly - not good. The shower itself was good. The bed was relatively comfortable, room nice & dark when curtains were pulled and the fan was a welcome relief from the heat. Overall comfortable enough (except for the toilet) but a little underwhelming. We did swim in the pool but again this was underwhelming - Cloudy water, lots of broken tile surrounds, untidy gardens, broken pool cover. Better than no pool though given the heat!

Nice friendly motel, excellent for a 'working wee

Pros: Hosts
Cons: All units, grounds and environs to be smoke free! Roll on the day!
Location: N/A - I was working
Hosts went out of their way to relocate me at no extra expense when a very inconsiderate guest(s) below me continued to chain smoke sending extremely unpleasant fumes into my unit.

Clean, tide and quiet the most important aspects.

Pros: Location and the size of the room
Cons: The sign in front of the Motel was old, rusty and ugly.
Location: Easy access, but need a car to get around the town and appreciate restaurants, city gardens and mountains.
We loved to visit the Museum of art, cience and History - Te Manawa. The impressive Botanic Garden, specially the Rose Garden with the marvellous collection of roses. The scenery of green mountains and windmills are fantastic!
