We stayed one night here. Spotless room with plenty of treats. A great variety of teas and coffee. Whittakers choclate on the pillows and fresh baked muffins on our arrival.
Spa bath and great shower.
Check in and check out super quick. Excellent.

We stayed for a week and were very impressed by the friendly, helpful staff. The motel was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and lovely and warm. Great location, we walked into town, close to the hockey turf. Most definitely would stay again. Couldn't fault it.

Hi Karen...Most motels offer a free controlled amount daily. This place was the same. Had some difficulty logging on but was assisted by obliging friendly staff. Zenbu system can be troublesome we find. We enjoyed staying at Ambassador and recommend them. Enjoy your trip to NZ Cheers Bob

"Rooms to the back are quiet"
"If you like space pay for the more expensive rooms. Not a huge difference in price range, over all the room sizes."
"Friendly staff, great location, lovely amenities"
"When booking in definitely request a unit towards the back of the complex so as to avoid traffic noise."
"Ask for studio room at back as its back from road"
