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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely lady collected us from the airport. But we arrived to a very old room, needs a clean and Update. The room was very poor for the price. The shower door did not close and the rubber seal was falling off, plus needed a good clean. The state of the rubbish bin was appalling as was the bathroom cabinet. See photos. We also had problems with the booking. We booked via direct phone call for one night, got an email, then the day we were about to leave for holiday we got another email saying we had booked for a week. Had to call to sort out. I am sure there are better quality rooms in the motel. But this room should not be costing over $200 a night. Also beware, there is a whopping 3 percent credit card charge that is not advertised.

These guys picked us up at 1am from the airport. Only had to ring and they were there in about 5min It has some decent amenities in the kitchenette, a soft bed and hood shower pressure. Is not on a main road so is quiet. Very good value for the money

Good rating for the ease & convenience of staying, getting shuttle to airport, leaving car, shuttle back, get car, drive home! The room itself is very dated but clean. Good selection of pillows on the bed. Lovely Christmas display in the office!

Excellent service again. Free car parking and transport to/from the airport. We always use this accommodation when flying out of CHC. Very relaxing quiet rooms some of which are quite new and have excellent facilities.

We are locals. We were delighted that we came across this cafe/restaurant by driving past. It's part of the motel. We decided to try it out. We didn't know what to expect when we walked in. But we were impressed. The quality and portion of what we ordered were humongous, delicious and mouthwatering. We are definitely going back to try more of their menu. I love the atmosphere too, it's nice and quiet and relaxing. It's just how we like it. Keep up the phenomenal service Heni. Your outgoing, friendly, fun, approachable, caring, empathetic, attention to detials, compassionate, prompt, professional, never fail to impress us every time we are there. Cheers

Great service and helpful staff. Very well appointed rooms. Pick-up and drop-off service from and to the airport was perfect. The driver was very friendly and went out of her way to assist us. Will stay there again.

Dinner was amazing, very surprised to find a restaurant on-site. The room was an economy studio, older but clean and comfortable. A free drop off to the airport saved on a Uber. All and all super happy

We stayed before flying out and the night we got home too with the park and fly option. We haven't stayed for a wee while and were reminded how good this hotel is. The shuttle runs 24 hours and is no extra cost. Upon arriving at 1am, our room was warm with curtains drawn, lights on and heating lovely and warm. We were upgraded to the 4 bedroom which was a nice surprise. The kids enjoyed the extra space. We were also given a late check out which was so appreciated.
