6/10 Good

Nice enough clean motel. Pricey at $220 per night. Bit of a frosty reception on arrival. Restaurant was well priced and friendly but basically had 50% of the menu unavailable.

10/10 Exceptional

We were staying on the top level and our tv wasn’t working. Wasn’t bothered to go tell the staff cause we didn’t really use it, as we only came back to the motel to rest and than off to our next adventure. Stayed here for 5 days and cleanliness was 5/5. Always changed our towels and took out the rubbish and recycling. Would definitely stay here again next time we travel down from Auckland
