Very enjoyable 2 night stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Mar 2024
We stayed in a Studio Unit as we were self-catering on our NZ road trip. The crockery/cutlery and glassware was good quality.
The layout of Room 208 was exactly as it appeared on the website. The room was very clean, had lovely furnishings and a modern bathroom. The bed and pillows were comfortable. It had good lighting with bedside lamps, a lamp on a stand with reading light attached and also downlights. A good size TV could be watched from the bed.
A short walk to the Octagon, restaurants, Speights brewery and other attractions.
Parking was available free on-site.
Negatives : we had to struggle up the stairs with luggage. Tip, request ground floor.
Would definitely recommend based on our stay, the location and the price.
Date of stay: March 2024
Room Tip: Request a ground floor room if stairs are a problem

Stayed 2 nights here as somewhere different to spread our money around other places in a tight economy. Prices were very competitive, handy location to main centre. The room was very clean with plenty of room to swing the cat around. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay again.

Room tip: Handy walking distance to town centre but make sure you have reasonable lung capacity as there is a bit of a steep climb uphill to motel.

Great location, short walk through to The Octagan for dining and a spot of shopping. Our unit was on the top floor facing the street, but was still quiet at night. Very clean and tidy, everything looked basically like new. Kitchenette was basic, but catered for morning cuppa and toast which was all we needed. Free onsite parking was easy to get in and out of unlike some places where this is quite tight. Staff were friendly and helpful when we realised my hubby left his phone and sunnies behind after we'd handed back the keys!

Wonderful motel. Walking distance to town, handy to the Speights ale house.

The rooms was very clean, almost brand new. Comfortable bed.

Clean bathroom. Wifi. Tv kitchenette and free parking.

What a perfect place to stay. And reasonably priced

Its in a good location, so easy to walk around town. Parking is good. The place was very clean.

Unfortunately the bed was a queen and had seen better days. Quite uncomfortable if we're honest. We'd booked an extra large bed, which we expected to be a king size or two singles joined together. Probably should have asked for an upgrade in hindsight.

Room was okay, the duvet was nice and warm, and the room temperature good. It was a bit noisy due to the road outside and some people noise, but that's not the properties fault.

The water pressure in the bathroom sink was fantastic, but the shower was pretty lame.

Overall it was just above average. We're probably just disappointed because we'd paid similar money somewhere else and this it was not nearly as good.

Room tip: Check the bed size. Extra large does not equal a king size like others on other booking.com Bring your own milk if you don't want to drink long life pottles.

Motel was good if a bit pricey.
About a 1km or more walk to the octagon.
On a very steep hill... Not so good if your knees are bad 😳.
Nice beds and pretty quiet except for the occasional guy shouting early in the morning from elsewhere.
