4/10 Fair

Would not reccommend
Stayed for one night and would never go back. Mold all over the blinds in every room, mold all on the floor in the bathroom, no ventillation in the so there was heaps of condinsation leaking everywhere and out of the lights was brown droplets, cracks in the walls and roof, heat pump barely works, pillows were old and clumpy and the whole place smelt terrible. Lounge was old and cracked and was facing the toilet which was not pleasant. Very unhappy. Only plus side was staff in reception was nice when i went to ask for more toilet paper because they only gave us 1 roll for 4 people.

10/10 Exceptional

We loved our stay. Me, my wife and our 9 month girl loved the place. Our baby slept throughout the night with ease. We were provided with a portacot without even asking and we requested a late checkout which was accommodated really well. Staff/owner were really friendly and helpful. Had the best spa bath with the fancy twin shower heads which was the main feature and the best that I’ve come across with many hotel/motel and resort stays. Free parking available and close to malls and restaurants. Heat pump/aircon was on point and the kitchenette was really handy. We found our room really quiet even though it’s centrally located. We would love to stay again.

Nice place to stay and convenient to Riccarton Westfield however, no sports channels to watch so we missed the rugby. Cheers.
