It was a good basic motel. Clean and tidy. Just a bit stark. Could do with some pictures on the wall perhaps?

Awesome hotel in Palmy

Pros: Close to the Central trust arena. Kitchen facilities. Cleanliness is A++. Staff are fantastic.
Cons: The Spa could do with a facelift but with that said it is currently nice and usable.
This was our 2nd stay here. The staff remembered us from last yr which was lovely. The room has been recently face lifted (though they were in lovely condition last yr) which was awesome to see. Very happy to recommend. We will definitely be back as this is our preferred place to stay.

Excellent value

We stayed at this motel the last time we were in New Zealand. It was a no-brainer to select it again. If we do ever make another visit we will do the same. Clean, tidy and very friendly and cooperative staff. Excellent facilities
