4/10 Fair

Crap stay
They putvus in a room, i walked in and could not go fully in as there were fumes (evidently airfreshner) that cause my lungs to garsp, my son said it felt like he was breathing down powder it was really bad!! I told them so they put me in a room that was so so crapy i said i couldnt stay in it they got snotty and put me in a room that had a queen and one single.. we had booked a two room for 5 people.. she was rude there was no way she would compensate for the downsize.. my son didnt even want to stay as said it creeped him out. He went home to Tauranga at mignight and i cancelled other two people staying so just my hubby and i stayed.... all my clothes stink of the smell that was through all hotel but at a lower level .. she hardly looked at me leaving or asked how we got on.. tital rip off tge cost i wanted to go home at mid night too but had dog sitters staying
