Wouldn't bother staying here again. Pretty disgusting room. Holes in the walls, bed propped up on bricks,microwave not able to be used,light bulbs missing, windows in bathroom not able to be closed, curtains ripped.Everything felt very dirty and disgusting. Duvet had stains over it. We didn't even bother to get into the bed itself lucky we had some blankets in our vehicle. The only good 2 things would be the big spa bath and sky channels. But personally would much rather a clean room. Last but not least the unit above us was an absolute nightmare thumping around all night with music blearing we barely had any sleep. With the state of our room i dont know how this place can stay open an absolute dump.
The rooms are tired but clean. The working surfaces are very clean. Corners are dirty. Sheets and towels were good. There was a hole in the wall of the toilet with a poster over part of it. Spa was clean. Looked like it hasn't been painted in 20 years. Came back from dinner to discover a rat in the kitchen. We looked under the bed for the rat after it disappeared. There was a rat trap under the bed. The corner of the bed was propped. Up with an old computer. We left and were given a full refund.
I stayed at the Golden Glow motel on Monday and Tuesday night. I received a very warm welcome and was shown how to use everything. That was fabulous! The sheets didn't fit the beds. The throws appeared to be duvet covers and also didn't cover the beds. The towels provided for the bathroom were nice and clean. The towels provided for the spa were mismatched and stained. There was a seat by the spa that looked like it was an outside chair that needed a cushion. Just left bare. Even a fake plant would have been nice. There were leaves and some rubbish outside my room that were just left there. The room etc was clean. Just uncared for and no effort made to make it pretty. There was also no plug or complimentary bathroom items. Disappointed. I wouldn't stay there again.
We stayed in the room with the spa. It was cozy. Beds were very comfortable. Fresh towels each morning. The staff members were lovely and polite. Motel is only walking distance to the central mall and food stores which is convenient. Enjoyed our stay
Have stayed here 3 times and found it comfortable although a bit run down. This time on arrival we discovered at least half of the units were occupied by people placed there by the Government for emergency housing. After 4 hours my wife was so concerned for her safety we left and found another motel. We were not advised of the situation when booking and after travelling from Auckland were shocked but gave it a go. I paid for one night on arrival (instead of the 2 originally booked) and the owner REFUSED to refund any of my money. I will NEVER stay here again and would NOT recommend this motel to anyone. P.S. In future I will always ask if there are any emergency housing people staying at any motel or hotel I am thinking of staying at in New Zealand.
