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.

I did a booking couldn’t add an extra 2 children as the room was apparently too small but wasn’t offered a bigger room but instead was told to cancel my booking. Terrible experience and won’t be booking here again.

Clean, spacious, well equipped. No frills but everything you need for your stay. Good choice of room types to suit all. 2 b/r apartment excellent value. Beds comfy, shower good. Would benefit from a few drawers in the cupbaords but other than that everything you need. We stayed three nights and were very comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Good sized room which was extremely clean and tidy. The room had all the facilities we needed, and a good guest laundry available. The motel is in a good location and easy to get to the local shops and waterfront. Would stay here again next time

Lovely motel, clean, tidy and comfortable. We went to NP for the Light Festival, the motel is just across the road, about a five minute walk to the festival (saving the scramble for parking). The beds are extremely comfortable and the room was a good size for 2 ageing adults. Courteous and friendly staff, can warmly recommend.

Good location and nice clean accommodation. Found bed a bit hard but personal preference. Helpfully had ev charging available. Provide real milk which we always find a bonus. Air conditioning was really appreciated. Would definitely visit again.

We stayed here a couple of nights and it was just perfect. The bed was amazingly comfortable, we slept the whole night, mini bar with the basic drinks for a good price. And the perfect size for the two of us. Will definitely be back next time we take a weekend away.

We have stayed in several motels over the years, when bringing groups to the Taranaki Garden Festival - and this accommodation was the best we have booked. Great location, comfortable & clean facilities, Great staff. The units were spotless. We would recommend this reasonably-priced motel.

We couldn’t fault this motel. Very clean, quiet and had all the little touches that make a motel better than others, like milk in a glass bottle instead of tiny pottles of long life milk. Check in was so easy, no forms to fill out and the man on reception was very friendly. We will definitely go back.
