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.

Hamilton, New Zealand1754 contributions237 helpful votes
Stayed 2 nights here in a ground floor unit. Room is basic and clean with a kitchenette. Decor is tired looking, pillows too soft. Wall heater works erratically. They provide extra blankets and a fan heater as well as electric blanket which helped to keep warm. Toilet seat was broken, hangers in the closet were a plastic mish mash of sizes mostly for hanging children’s clothes or with tabs only to hang pants not suitable for hanging adult work clothes up.

Centrally located for cafes, restaurants, theatre, bars and shopping. Although it needs a bit of of smartening up (it's a tad tired at the moment), the room was spotlessly clean, beds comfortable, kitchenette has all necessities etc. Despite being off a noisy main street we had a quite a good nights sleep. There's free off street parking and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this motel if you need to stay centrally in Palmy.

We selected this motel mainly because of its convenient location and free parking facilities. Car park spaces were quite limited and a bit small for SUV. Front desk staff was not always there, we needed to ring the bell to draw attention. However, she was very considerate to pre-warm the room for us. The room we stayed was a bit old, but comfortable enough, it's just the bathroom .... the washbasin was too small that only good enough for washing hands. 選這間旅館主要因為位置很便利,想去的餐廳都在步行可達的距離之內。上網看相片感覺都幾舊幾唔吸引,但實際上房間還可以。服務員很貼心地快步替我們暖房。房間算寬敞,s were quite limited and a bit small for SUV.

Very convenient to everything central, clean and tidy. Breakfast is available, bathroom is very small doesn't allow room for your toiletries etc. Staff very friendly and helpful. On site car parking. Small but adequate with basic essentials

I stayed at this motel because it was a very short walk to the Regent Theatre. The room was spacious, clean, and there was everything we needed in it. The only downside is the walls to the room next door are thin, we could hear talking in the room next door well after midnight, and got woken by the shower in the room next door. Other than that was perfect for our needs of a motel close to the Regent Theatre.

What a great find. So convenient right in the heart of the city. Small unit had absolutely everything we needed, even a hot plate for cooking. Close to everything. And so quiet! Good parking and easy to get to too.

The motel is well-situated only a 5-minute walk from the centre of this surprisingly modern and vibrant town. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well-appointed although there is one possibly serious drawback - the plumbing runs through the walls and is quite noisy. So, if your next-door neighbour is an early riser and uses the washroom, it is likely to wake you. Otherwise, I would recommend this place as good value and well-located.

The room was very basic with a very small bathroom. Bed needs replacing as a bit saggy in the middle. Heating was inadequate as it was on a timer that couldn’t be adjusted the room was very cold. Very clean however

Very clean and the bed was so comfortable. I would stay here again, although perhaps not in winter as the heater was not adequate for the room size. Certainly value for money. Was a bit noisy with other guests coming and going, however that is not the fault of the owners. Some people are just rude.

Off street parking and gates locked at night. Pleasant welcome on arrival. Room was clean, neat and very big with plenty of room. Situated in the CBD but very quiet and lots of eateries within walking distance.
