Perfect

Stayed here for a second time, as I was doing the Hawkes Bay Marathon again. They put us in the same room and our stay was great.
My only suggestion is that you leave the door open after cleaning as the smell was over powering

Comfortable bed. Clean facilities. Cutlery etc for light meals. Good old fashioned NZ style motel. Friendly welcome etc

An Indian takeaway nearby and fish and chips too if you’re so inclined

The only annoying thing was the neighboring dog that barked indiscriminately...

The motel facilities are fine tho' a bit of TLC is required as the place is a bit dated. Overall tho' we had a pleasant stay, and the place was clean and comfortable. We had a unit facing the main road and found it to be quiet enough even tho' one of the nights we stayed was a Saturday

Overflow of the hot water tank kept us awake the first night and tepid water for our shower next morning. No offer of a discount. Corners of the toilet and bathroom had a pile of dust and a dead spider behind the bathroom door, rubbish bin lid in toilet was dirty and had stuff over the lid, a layer of dust on top of the phone and tv, freezer was rusty inside, dried liquid spilt in the cutlery drawer and hadn't been wiped out as in the cupboards., coffee mugs had stains in them and had to be washed before being used.Stains on the duvets and on pillow slips.Mould on bathroom ceiling. office could do with a spruce up also.Will not recommend to anyone or stay there again even though the office lady was friendly.

Room tip: check out rooms before booking in
