Mr. Happy first night in New Zealand
It was what I expected, simple and clean. The room was a good size to house the two single beds, which were comfortable. Big clean shower room. The staff were polite and helpful. Located on a busy road, so some traffic noise.

Nice outlying location
Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location. It's about a 15 minute walk to a major shopping center, but only about 5 minutes to a smaller center with a good range of food choices. It is also on 3 main bus routes, with stops practically in front of the motel. One minor comfort issue was that the bedroom was not on the same level as the bath, but overall a very nice unit and great value. Would definitely stay there again.
