This motel has been a choice for our family awhile now but since changing hands is not so great and looking tired
The spa pool was and has been unavailable now apparently and you cannot use the pool after 6pm or before 10am.One of the pool gates is tied shut with cable ties
The grounds are unkept and the family did not feel so welcome as previously. The internet cut out in our upstairs unit
Otherwise units are clean and ideal just not missing usual kiwi welcome we are used to
We stayed here last weekend for two nights with our grand-daughter while visiting her brothers, our grandsons. We found it very comfortable and well equipped. We could have done with serving spoons to serve the food we cooked. The beds were comfortable and warm. We were able to cook all we wanted shops near so we could have takeaways if we wanted. On a busy road but the noise muted. Fairly near the centre of town and easy access to most of the attractions. Had a pool which we will enjoy using in the summer and also a Spa Pool. Definitely a find-not expensive with good facilities & parking.
There were 6 of us staying in 3 separate rooms. Previously we have stayed in motels along Motel Alley (Ulster Street) and found it pretty noisy. In the past we have found a lot of the accommodation "tired" and "dated". We were part of a sports team so didn't want to pay 100's of $ a night, but then didn't want "budget" either. The motel was 5 minutes drive to the sporting hall which was a definite attraction. As was the spa pool for the soak, after a day of sport. The units we stayed in had been renovated and were clean, nicely furnished and cosy. And quiet too. The walls aren't cardboard thin and we couldn't hear any neighbours. Kenny is a real pleasure to deal with too. This motel is definitely on our "return to" list. I didn't get a photo of the interior of the spa. It is situated inside a room, which is well ventilated with a door and window. So not open to the great outdoors - which is fine, especially in Winter. Thanks Kenny - we'll be back!!
Great stay at great price clean quite and excellent hosts would definitely come back and recommend to others nice pool and spa area all very well maintained and clean rooms very clean and quite satisfying stay thank you
Only 5 minute drive to Victoria Street with all its shops, cafe's and restaurants. Nice quiet location, recently renovated and rooms are immaculate with a lovely colour scheme. There are fines if you smoke in the rooms, which is great as they are nice and fresh. Little kitchenette and the use of an electric fry pan if needed. The pool is lovely to swim in and lovely area around the pool to relax. There was no problem checking in 2 hours earlier after checking this was ok before we got there. Owners are very helpful and friendly.
