Very good stay but unhappy that you billed us in A$ and charged us a conversion to NZ$ when we live in NZ and the Motel is in NZ. Why was the transaction not done in NZ$ ?.We have ended up paying 10% more than the advertised price for this room and we are not happy with this . The service provided by the Motel was very good but unhappy with Wotif. Tom Barry

We set the rates in NZ dollars for all the sites what Wotif has charged you is no reflection on our motel and something you need to take up with them
