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.

Ok so got there unbooked but phoned number on door as vacancies sign was lit no actual person on site.was only 7.00 o'clock. . Confusion over location . And unable to get key out of stupid box outside in the rain. So got soaked. Got to room nice room but windows all open and rainy. Stayed ok. But wasn't sure if I'd be back so kept key (only stayed for a few hrs 4 a sleep. ). Then next day get phone call regarding key. Operator very rude. But got key on its way bk to them that day. As lived out of area. Then get another rude call complaining and to say they charge me 4 key. On an over priced poorly run motel they Then helped themselves without permission to my bank account. For Money 4 a returned key . Not put bk. Either. Certainly under any circumstances will i be back.

We booked through the motel as were needing to arrive at 10.30pm from Rotorua. We quoted Agodas price of $164 and they said $169 so we said yes. The place stunk of too much deoderiser, moths everywhere due to the light left on in the bathroom and window open, so slept with moths flying around. The shower the next morning had to be hand held due to the rod that holds it had a missing clip. When I emailed and complained about the state of the room they said I can't get any refund back as needed to raise the issues on arrival. We checked in at 10.30 to a key in a lock box... no one was around. Then i go into my credit card account and they charged me $182.40.... what the heck!!! We went back to complain in person today and he quoted me a different price plus surcharge. I said you can't do that and showed them the price on Agoda. Now he says he can't refund as he's not the boss. We said to talk to the boss and refund immediately as they can't take more than what they quoted. We are going to the Commerce Commission if they don't reply or refund. Terrible place to stay. Never again.

We stayed in Unit 2 being a two-bedroom self-contained unit. It was very old and tired with numerous things either wrong, not provided, or not working. We wrote to the motel advising them of up to 15 things wrong with the accommodation with no reply. At $260 per night, it was too expensive for what was provided. Using Booking.com to reserve, the picture was not where we ended up staying. Very misleading. I have written to the Hospitality Association to find out how a make a complaint, but seem fairly certain this accommodation provider is not associated with any motel or hotel hospitality group.

Don't bother I'd made the mistake of not reading the reviews before booking. But I'll back up all the negative comments below. Staff were barely aware of your presence, mostly just get a surly response when asking a question. Tv wasn't connected first night. Reception closed by 6 despite the door saying 9-9. No number to call. No TV till I had found the secret code. Use hdmi2!! Kitchen equipment poorly stocked. Shower pressure rubbish Grouting mouldy Lights not working Curtains hanging off the rail Generally dirty round the edges Air conditioner worked but made a hell of a noise Bed only had 2 very thin pillows and no spares Didn't see the point of telling them any of this stuff that I'm putting on here as frankly I don't think they'd care. Plus side. The bed was comfy, the WiFi was fast and, when the man gave me the secret code to make the tv work, there was plenty of chanel's to chose from But seriously, at this price, go somewhere else.

Honestly the worst motel I have ever stayed in. Disgusting rooms and terrible customer service .I have been travelling throughout NZ for work and used to stay at different places. Its the first time that I'm experiencing awful service from reception and I wont recommend this place to anyone if they're looking a for a peaceful evening,

This motel has one new side and one very old run down side. When you book they show photos of the new side!! My room was absolutely disgusting and dirty i was contemplating sleeping in my car! As soon as you opened the door the room smelt like curry with a mix of cigarette smoke, The carpet is so old it is pulling away from the floor and creasing in places, there is cobwebs everywhere on the roof, there is marks everywhere on the walls, the bed is hard as a rock, Walls are paper thin so you hear neighbours, There is a flat fire alarm beep going off every minute and i read in reviews this was happening 3 months ago!! ….. The list goes on, my advise do not stay here it is not worth your money whatsoever!!

Although room is modern, the shower had mould all through the grout and on the floor, the fridge had been turned off so when we went to use it for our food it had a terrible smell in it. The back of the unit is covered in rubbish which is a breeding ground for rats. Outside the front of the units I noticed there were smoke butts all in the gardens, as they have not provided ash trays for smokers. Seriously I’m not rascist, but these 3 hotels are run by Indians, but come on guys your need to care for our country, and keep it green and clean. 😡😡 Just a suggestion to the owners, spray some bleach on the mould, no scrubbing is required, it’ll disappear within minutes, and put the large pieces of rubbish in the recycle bin, and if your turning thie fridges off, leave them slightly open so fresh air gets in them so they don’t reek.

Upon arrival big carpet stains and smelt like cat urine. Dark and damp looking conditions. The oven was unclean. I do not recommend this motel. The wifi did to work. The staff listened but did nothing to resolve the situation. Overall a big thumbs down. I hope the staff management read this review and do something to improve the situation for the sake of their customers.

Spent 3 nights and wished we hadn’t. Paid $249 each night for a 2-bdrm apartment and services well below par. The internet didn’t work in our room and Indian mangers/staff dithered around. The oven was disgusting so we could not heat up a pizza. Bugs in bed and carpet smelt. We only chose the place because it was convenient to family living nearby. We will NOT be returning!

Arrived to a room with carpet stains and limited/no wifi. Service was poor and were unable to fix the wifi (Room 20). Spent 3 nights here and was not satisfied at all, much rather sleep outside to be honest.
