Warm and friendly place to stay

Review of Breeze Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Jul 2020
My husband and I recently stayed at The Breeze. We were welcomed by a very friendly owner, who showed us to our room. The room was extremely clean and the bed comfortable and warm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others.
Date of stay: July 2020

Could not believe the untidiness of the reception area and Managers residence. Absolutely disgusting. Clothes and other items strewn around the whole area and all on full public view.

To their credit the rooms, while very different in decor and styling, were reasonably clean with new carpet and two recliner chairs for comfort. However the shower leaked all over the floor.

TV reception is very ordinary and wifi is so slow you would be able to send things faster with snail mail from NZ Post.

Very loud aggressive argument on telephone by owner/manager in Chinese outside of the office was also very off-putting.

Don’t think I will be in any hurry to come back but don’t think that will concern the owners.
The bed was bloody uncomfortable with the mattress absolutely beyond its use by date. Roll into the middle of the bed situation did not allow a great deal of sleep as did also the coming and going of motor vehicles at all hours of the night.

Friendly people but very run down motel.

Very untidy managers quarters which you can see from reception.

Everything was just pretty tired and dirty. Curtains didn’t fit the windows, duvets didn’t fit the beds. Sheets were clean and bed comfortable. Kitchen just pretty grimy everywhere. New carpet and Lino in our room (room 8) but didn’t make up for anything unfortunately.

People in room next to me quite loud and drinking until 2am (old seals around windows didn’t help keep noise and their cigarette smoke out either) highlight of stay was that management came straight away to ask them to quiet (which they did straight away) which I really appreciated.

Asked reception how much laundry was and told it was too expensive and I should use one at campground next door, which we did and it was great, although not most convenient.

Wouldn’t stay again unfortunately.

Unfortunately the person in reception wasn't very welcoming when we arrived (maybe little experience in hospitality). It felt a bit like we were putting him out by arriving. One other person in the evening was more helpful. Walked into reception which opened onto private unkempt living areas which was not what I wanted to see. Booked this place late over the holiday period so there wasn't much else on offer. Didn't feel tidy or clean. Beds felt like they were made by a 12yo, clean sheets not sure about the undersized cover?

We did not make a booking and we’re tired after long drive.
Rooms were ok for budget but I’ve seen better in back packer accommodation. The kitchenette was clean.
The owner would not accept credit cards as his machine was not working, and wanted cash only. ( I wonder why there would be no receipt!!?) As we didn’t have enough cash, and were deciding where to go, the credit machine suddenly worked after some pretentious fiddling.
The TV picture wasn’t the best.
Electric blankets worked well. Wifi didn’t work.
Overall, totally overpriced. Would strongly recommend elsewhere

Not terribly pretty from The outside but clean and tidy rooms - loads of space - comfortable beds and a good bathroom. After a few hours on the train and a long drive up the coast with stops for walks along the way - all we wanted was somewhere warm to have a shower and sleep. The bonus is it is a three minute walk to Monteiths Brewery so dinner was sorted too.
