Basically a very good room but we felt we lacked privacy because our room was next to the office and the netting was not very private. We had to close the whole curtain to get full privacy. The shower was too sensitive, one second it was cold, next it was too hot. Although note was in place suggesting ways of handling the shower, it still didn't work very well. Good location for town, good parking nd room was clean and maintained very well.

Room Tip: Please fix the overly sensitive shower and use fitted sheets on the bed. Also update the televisions so that Plus one is available.

This motel is in a great location. 5 minutes to everything, supermarkets, bars, restaurants. It is clean but dated. Beds comfortable and bathroom spotless. On the down side we would have thought that a can opener and bottle opener were basic kitchen equipment - maybe more useful than 5 knives for the short term guests?
Staff were pleasant and helpful. Worth staying for a couple of nights.

Room Tip: Great location

Lovely and clean, close to everything - we were very happy thank you! Excellent service, good customer service relationship. We were there for Waitangi Day - good comfortable bed, quiet atmosphere and good service is our main requirement alongside good rates. I would recommend your Motel to family and friends!
