Nice and neat little stay with amazing Mount Taranaki views

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Oct 2022
Tony was really accommodating and could assist with any requests we had. My room upstairs had a queen and single bed which was very spacious. It had a little kitchen where we could cook some food - it was very convenient. The room and bathroom was really clean and neat too. We had an amazing view to Mount Taranaki.

The beds were a bit too soft for my liking but still comfortable. The blankets provided were warm enough for us but there were extra blankets and heater in the cupboard and electric blankets on the beds.

It was nice and quiet. Really close to town - only 3-5 mins drive away. We could walk to Pukekura park - took about 5-7 mins to walk there. Highly recommended.
Date of stay: October 2022
Room Tip: Rooms upstairs in the middle of the complex has the best views to Mount Taranaki.

Room was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and accommodating and our pet dog was made very welcome. It was nice and quiet - the next unit had a new baby staying but we didn't hear a thing. Great value for money.

Good location, Tony was very helpful and the price is right for the dated rooms. Even though the motel is on a busy road, the rooms were relatively quiet and we didn't hear much traffic noise. Would stay here again.

The room was basic but clean, with everything we needed for 2 adults, 2 teens and 1 kid. There is a dairy and chip shop near by. It is close to everything. The staff were lovely and helpful (including the lovely dog). We had a nice 3 night stay.

We had a weekend stay at the motel and it was so great to be able to wake feeling refreshed after sleeping on a comfortable bed. We had a room with a kitchen and ample space for us as well as spare beds. Our towels were refreshed daily, the room was so clean and smelt fresh. Proprietors were very friendly.
