We stayed here at the beginning and end of our tour - the motel was chosen by the company who arranged our self-drive trip. The motel has a bit of a dull aspect, and a kind of untidy looking office, but the staff were always very friendly and helpful. There are two bedrooms which is great because we were able to spread ourselves out. The rooms are well furnished and contemporary and have everything you need, including some decent coffee.

Stayed here with 7 family members across 2 rooms in late March. Checkin was after midnight due to our flights and the hosts made sure we had instructions for this. Nice! Rooms were basic, but very clean and tidy. Beds were comfortable for all our party (age range from 18 to 75 - so they were picky). Bathrooms were clean and hot water plentiful. Very happy. Hosts were helpful when we needed directions to local stores and the like.

Lovely place to stay. Owners very friendly and went above and beyond to help with information on the city. Although room very small, it was enough for us and we weren't concerned. Bathroom was beautiful and clean. Small fridge provided and bed was comfortable. Pub close by (5-10min walk). Would highly recommend.

Stayed for 2 nights and this motel more than adequate. Not 4 star but comfortable with kitchen in room. Hosts were very obliging in helping out with information and phoning taxis etc. Had use of barbecue for tea 1 night.

Highlights of my stay with Aotea include:
- very responsive communication with staff
- fresh and clean rooms and bedding
- stove, cooking utensils, fridge, complimentary tea and coffee, tv, free wireless internet, taxi discount
- a very low price
- and a great outdoor spa

I could not have asked for more.

My fiancee made use of the laundry, also for free.

Only point that I'd mention is that internet use is free up to 400mb in total across all users. If you're a heavy internet user then it will start to cost a bit. An easy work-around is to buy a sim and share the internet from your phone.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom apartments are best.
