Definitely recommended
It may be old, but is scrupulously clean, beds are comfortable, shower at good pressure no complaints. Steven the host was very friendly and helpful. We stayed during O week, so a bit noisey with teenagers partying, had to LOL, at notice on the door (re noise control contact details)but super close to uni halls of residence Caroline Freeman College, which suited me well as was settling my daughter in.

Great central location good space for a family, just a bit dated and tired.
ANTHONY, nz1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Location is noisy. We had a road side unit. Its pretty run down in general but was clean and tidy. Obviously had previous issues with strong cooking smells as there was plenty of signage. Payment was an issue. Was charged a massive +3.5% for VISA which didn't appear on the invoice so really this is dodgy. Its very unusual to be billed + % for VISA card. Parking was limited.
Mark, nz2 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Clean, Comfortable and Great value
The motel was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. It was warm and the living area was a reasonable size. Beds were comfortable and the service was good. An older motel which was good value?

A nice stay!
It’s a big area and comfortable to stay in. The bed is comfortable also.
Hew, my2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Badly in need of an update
Generally needs a lot of updating. Bed was uncomfortable and pushed up against a wall to allow for a single bed in the main bedroom. Furniture was old and dingy. Both nights were there there was a lot of street noise and no close by restaurants were available.
