Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The location is convenient just 5 minutes walk to town centre, there is a shopping mall and supermarket opposite to this motel. The staff is very helpful and willing to introduce all the place to go. My room is studio and it is clean and nice, highly recommend.

Affordable accommodation. Location was really handy to the shopping complex across the road and town in general. Studio unit tidy, nothing flash and all we needed. Complimentary continental breakfast which suited our needs. Reception staff lovely and friendly.

Convenient location and comfortable bed. The reception lady showed us lots of suggestion and things to do here. The room is not very spacious but enough for us. Continental breakfast included is a really nice touch. Will definitely book again.

We should have realised you get what you pay for , this motel is old, tired and very cheap. The room had no A/C, they just put a fan in the room instead, no wardrobe just some hangers on the wall and a very modest tired kitchen. The bed was ok and the bed linen was clean but the bathroom was rather grim. See pictures attached. We booked and paid for breakfast , that was very poor. You had a choice of a couple of cereals, the thinnest cheapest bread for toast , butter cut up into half inch cubes , small amounts of marmalade in plastic cups like medicine cups from a cold/flu syrup, the one flavour yoghurt was only in a large tub not individual pots and the cheapest orange juice you could buy. Needless to say it wasn’t very good so we didn’t bother after the first day.
This motel is adequate if you are on a limited budget but don’t annoy the manager as you will get told off. We arrived just after 7pm and were told off because the office closed at 7pm - we had no idea we even had to be there by 7pm !
This is not a place that we would recommend- even the basic travel lodges are better than this.

The photos are completely misleading. The rooms are tiny, with no air conditioning which is a must in the heat of NZ weather. The bathroom was even smaller and was disgusting. There was black mould on the shower head and on the shower glass near the base where the cleaner obviously took a short cut. This motel is not 4 star. It was definitely a 2 star motel. When we politely went to ask if there was air conditioning or a fan we had missed in our room (we did miss a tiny, mobile fan) the owner told us if we didn't like it to move to another motel down the road. We hadn't even complained, just asked if there was any aircon. Shocked really. Nothing more to say. Can't recommend you to miss this enough - also off the beaten track in a crappy location. PS. Continental breakfast not worth it if you're paying extra

The Accolade Lodge Motel was indeed a life saver after having booked at another Motel which was anything but professional and was very old and grotty.So we left in disgust. We arrived at the Accolade and they were able to accommodate us. Lovely two couples two bedrooms. Each with own ensuite and small extra kitchen in second bedroom great could make a cup of tea in morning without disturbing the other couple. Everything you could want clean to a fault. Lovely lounge dining area lcd tv in each bedroom and lounge (3) yes you read it right. Lovely hosts we loved it and will be back again another time. The other motel needs a lesson from this couple.

Check in- Easy and fast and Friendly
Room - Nice and modern and clean
Heating - Didn't work very well. No controls. I was cold :(
Wifi/Internet - Worked well. No problems.
Parking - Easy and simple
Location - Pretty good, not super central but close to grocery stores etc.

4 Stars not 5 because of the heater. I get cold easily though, so other people will probably be fine.

Very dated motel. Tidy and clean with very friendly staff and honestly for the price point you can't complain ;)

Only real bother was that the Bathrooms is very small .. hard to contain the water to the shower!

Friendly staff,we had breakfast late and staff still served us
Wifi free and strong connection
A few minute walk to city central

Neutral
Took a little while for the water to get hot and the water stream was just enough
The egg smell from the toilet window is strong but expected

Negative
Can hear the footsteps of people above but it wasn't that noisy overall
The tiles on floor where it meets the carpet it's spiky

I would return here,the 2nd best place we stayed at on this trip

I was going to give this Motel a good review until I found the communication with the owner to be quite rude and unprofessional for a business owner after our stay at the Motel. The room itself was fine except for their poor excuse for showers; I could get a better response from my backyard hose, the pressure of these showers are horrendous!

Ok, during our stay we spilt some water on the couch, owner called up to notify that we would be charged but said "it wouldn't be much" so we agreed. Only to find out that they had charged $100 cleaning fee for this. When questioned why it cost so much even though he said it wouldn't be costly his response was that they had found another spill on the ground which they had to clean and replace for the night. Bear in mind that he did not call or contact me to tell me this beforehand. When questioned about this his attitude changed. He became quite rude and suggested that because we had requested new towels in the morning (OBVIOUSLY SO WE COULD SHOWER!!!) he insinuated that it was because we wanted to "clean up" or cover up the spills we had made. Now OBVIOUSLY if this was the case we would have flipped the couch cushion over don't you think? Attitude needs adjusting if you are to continue in such a business. Communication needs to be handled better also!

Upon check-in I asked about Sky or where to watch the boxing fight , lady was unhelpful. Also no mention of free WiFi.

Never coming back and I'm sure the feeling is MUTUAL!

Response from VinceMcBride, Owner at Accolade Lodge Motel
Responded 10 Aug 2015
Hi Renz56, Thank you for your review of our Motel. in respond to your comments about being charged for damages, The liquid damage on the sofa and the carpet was not drinking water as you say, a cleaning company had to be called in. The sofa had to be removed from the suite and now appears they can't get the stain out of the fabric so will need to be replaced. All motels can not afford costs of damages and have to pass the charges on to guests. Regards Vince
