Great stay - is a very well situated motel - the motel it self is an older building but extremely clean and tidy. Right on a main road but is quiet - we stayed on a Friday night and had no issues with noise etc Good parking on site - manager was very nice Would stay again

My partner had to travel from Hamilton for a last minute family emergency midweek so I booked this motel for him while he was enroute. I purposely went directly to the motel's own website to book, hoping to save them booking fees. Their own website asked what time for check in and I advised 8.30pm which is when my partner guessed he would arrive at the motel. Upon arrival at 8.10pm the host/owner rudely asked him why he was late as check in was 8pm as that was when the office closed, all the while moaning about 'jaffas' using booking.com which cost him money bla bla bla. My partner pointed out that he was actually earlier than his stated booking time and that I had done this on his behalf (directly through their own website mind you) as he was driving, but the owner carried on being rude and argumentative. In hindsight, I should've read the reviews. The room was standard, basic and at least clean but would not recommend this motel. NB: The following morning my partner found a notice in the room with office hours as Mon-Fr 7am - 10pm, ring the bell and we will attend shortly. Terrible service from a long term motelier, especially as so many are struggling after covid. Perhaps they should sell up and do something more suited as they do not live up to their claims of being wonderful hosts as per their website.

Carpets very worn & looked like they needed a clean, toilet didn’t flush and ran water constantly. Very dated decor, mattresses on beds uncomfortable. Price was applicable for the motel condition but could do with an update with decor and carpets. Was easy access to town & takeaway shops

I got a laugh out of previous review as we also met "the owner" who told us we wasted money paying booking.com. However under that gruff voice was a very nice man who was tired of being there ten years, told us he doesn't leave keys out... I was having eye operation in Palmerston North hospital and booked the night between the operation and the followup next day. He put the heater on for us and we went out for dinner at Rose and Crown Pub. Unit was $106 and was very good value, close to most places people visit...

This is a really lovely location next to a park with lots of trees and lawns for children to play in yet really handy to the city. The unit had well appointed facilities and the owner/manager was more than helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this motel.
