Rush trip to the lower North Island at short notice.

Have stayed here before and the managers are very friendly and very accommodating.

We were not sure if we needed one night or two but definitely 2 rooms.

They booked it out for us and we let them know in good time it was one night only but only by lunchtime the second day, this was no problem for them.

We were given corporate rates and the same price for 2 in one room and 1 in the other.

Very clean tidy, spacious rooms.

Large bathroom.

Good kitchen.

Large comfortable bed.

Parking at your door.

Close to CBD.

Happily recommend this place to any one.

Merry Christmas.

Good size rooms, separate queen bedroom with a single in the lounge, equipped with everything you need, showers had good water pressure, not that close to main town shopping, but we were there to see family, would stay again

The motels are comfortable and clean with good space. It's close to the town centre and a short five minute walk to the river where there's a decent walkway all the way to the second bridge. Cooks Gardens, a very handy location and highly recommended.

On Arrival the microwave was not working properly and was too risky to start the microware and make the food. Made a complaint to reception and they change the microwave after a week. Even the management did not allow us to stay inside the room when the room service was in process. So we have to stay outside in cold until they finish. The staff was not happy to clean the dishes in the morning. Room was very noisy and a very cold room and bathroom even when the heater is on (No Heat pump). Take a photo of room when you arrive otherwise they will charge you even for small damage. Very bad experience. Will not stay again. Not value for money.

Room Tip: New management is terrible. Be careful. Not friendly.

Our car club stayed here recently. 15 units available. We had room 9. The shower was awesome! And bed was ultra comfy and warm. Managers were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend for car groups. One level. Parking right outside room. Plus a discount for our group was given on the accommodation price as well! Fantastic.

Room Tip: Xtra pillows. Excellent range of teas/coffee. Free milk; and a Whittakers chocolate treat by the bed too!
