10/10 Exceptional

There was a muck-up in our reservation somehow between Expedia and the property and we ended up booked in to a room with too few beds. The lady at reception was lovely and let us use the room while I sorted out alternatives with Expedia. Expedia ended up moving us to another motel as there were no rooms left that would accommodate our group easily, so we didn't end up staying the night. Their customer service provided at the Coachman was excellent.

6/10 Good

The property had missing things (cups / TV remote) damage to walls / windows. It was cheap and spacious and contact friendly. We knew what we were getting. I loved having a view of the historic, old cemetery. Thank you.

2/10 Poor

Nothing positive to say. Dust on all the window ledges, ice box in fridge frozen over, shower cubicle had holes in the wall, no seating only a bed to sit on even though it had a separate bedroom, lace curtain torn. Had to leave early due to family emergency and after nearly 4 weeks I still can’t get anyone to discuss a refund with me. They do not return calls and blatantly ignore requests. iWork’s never recommend this motel.

Traveller turned up and was told there was no booking for him and he had to drive all the way back to Dunedin. I'm STILL waiting for the property to contact me with an explanation and apology! Will not be booking them ever again.

8/10 Very good

I didnt get to stay here, Expedia had double booked for quite a few people due to their booking systrm failing and then not notifying us to double check confirmation directly with Coachmans (which Expedia had confirmed with me). But! The staff were awesome trying to get alternative accomodation and found me somewhere with a clean bed in a tidy place with a lockable room at no further cost. Fantastic service.

6/10 Good

Comfortable, but with some shortcomings
The person on reception was very apologetic about asking me if I had paid in full for my stay at the time of making an online booking through Expedia, but then went into too much detail about difficulties the motel had with bookings made through a third party (e.g. double booked rooms). However, she enquired what plans I had for the day, and even offered to arrange a lift to a place I wanted to visit. The room was equipped with a 'fridge, basic crockery, cutlery and glasses, and was very clean and comfortable. The receptionist pointed me in the right direction to reach it, but I was offered no assistance getting to it. On the morning of my departure, at 8 am, I almost missed a taxi I had booked as the reception was not yet open. What I understood to be the way out (the same way as I had entered on arrival) was locked and I had to find a longer way round to the front of the motel.
