Wow this was very good and great value.
We stayed only one night but unit was big enough to stay a month. Lovely hostess. We had the one bedroom with a view and couldn't believe how good it was for the cost. Comfy bed, lovely lounge. Definitely stay next time. Thanks.

I had the worst sleep in that long it's not funny, and I can fall asleep on the ground!
The noise from the trucks going past all night and the trains was just terrible!
When we checked out the receptionist just said she had never slept in that room!
The floor was sticky, and my wife hates that anywhere!
Wasn't even good value for our money.
Wouldn't recommend it if you want to sleep.

Room tip: Don't stay here, very noisy at night from trucks and trains.

I stay in numerous motels/ hotels around NZ and this is the first time i have seen a motel charge extra for doing something that is included in the price everywhere else.
The Panorama charges an extra $25 if they have to wash the dishes you use during your stay!
The down side to this is that previous people just quickly rinse and dry dishes and put away and explains why my cutlery didn’t look too clean when i came to use it.
I would consider this a Health and Safety issue!
There is no doubting this is a great location but tired rooms and questionable cleanliness gives this place its rating.

This was a great place to stay after a long drive. Upgraded to a two bedroom unit and it had everything you would need in a motel. Extremely clean and the unit we had would be good for a family for a longer stay. Great views and nice staff on reception. Thoroughly recommend this Motor Lodge.

Overall, probably the best motel accommodation we have come across so far in NZ. Very clean and finished to a high standard. We ate out in handy pub next door so I am unsure quite how well equipped it was for food preparation, but likely to be ok. There was a spa bath so ample space for a shower too.
