It was clean, and had what was required. It was dated. The sofa was a little worn out. A little too expensive, considering the area and the overall offering. I would stay there again, as the staff were friendly and helpful. It had a very clean and tidy outside area, with pool, but the weather wasn't suitable.

A very clean room with a modern television and appliances. The mattresses were worn out years ago and resulted in a poor nights sleep.

This motel is near the Te Ahu Centre and within walking distance of several restaurants. The owner looks after his guests very well. Rooms are not fancy, but quite comfortable. I enjoyed my stay here.
