  • 4.0.Fair

    Reception was not friendly. As Silver status customers we were to receive a bottle of wine on arrival- this was confirmed on the booking confirmation. We were given a 200 ml bottle of one of the cheapest wines available in NZ. When I challenged the receptionist about this she appeared not to understand what the problem was. I tried 4 times to make contact with the customer service team at Hotels.com but it proved to be impossible. The first person had no idea what I was talking about, eventually said she was transferring me to the Silver team but cut me off. I called again and after explaining it all again was put on hold for a lengthy period. When the person returned to my call she could not hear me ( I believe she had not correctly opened the line) and, after a couple of warnings, she disconnected. The process for contacting you is hopeless. I have the impression it is deliberately made difficult. The personnel are in the Phillipines and both of those I spoke to had a problem understanding me. I had trouble hearing them. I wonder what the experience would be if I had a serious problem with a booking. I am not inclined to continue using Hotels.com in the future.

    Comfortable, clean and handy location.

    Friendly staff. Unit was spacious and well presented. Bed comfortable. Although motel is located on a main road it was quiet and we could not hear the traffic at all. Quick check-in and easy check out.

    Quiet, modern and super clean unit

    Great location just out of main town centre. Very quiet considering motel is on a main road. Lovely, clean and recently updated unit with everything you need for a night or two. Were definitely nicer rooms than others in the town for similar price.

    A nice modern motel, but a bit too far to walk into the main centre.

    Very clean no complaints.I booked a two bedroom as had friends coming to watch our beloved rugby and thought that would give us at least a couch and two chairs but no ,one two seater and a single bed in lounge .Very poor on utensils .Had to get someone to get tv to go .Not good enough when you pay high price in these times.Dissappointed.
