Review of Mercer Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Mar 2015via mobile
My boyfriend & I had just finished a hard days hike in the Hunua Ranges when we stumbled across Podges Place(Mercer Motel). The people who run it now are so friendly & gave us the warmest welcome :) We stayed in a basic cabin in back that provided everything we needed. The tavern adjacent has amazing pizza. Also just a 2 minute walk away is a gas station and Mcdonalds.

    Reviewed 28 April 2014

    Stayed in April 2014, rooms were basic but had everything we needed. Would have been great if the TV worked! We arrived by bus and there are no attractions or shops within walking distance but the host kindly helped us with transport and did his best to help us with whatever we needed. Definitely recommend driving here, the long distances require a car. We are aware that the ownership has recently changed and that the new owner is keen to make some changes, such as renovating and reopening the little pub next door. The staff was very friendly and curious, thank you!

    Very basic furnishings in this motel - with a cardboard box....covered with an old pillowcase to elevate the freeview TV receiver. Dust and cobwebs around the unit. The TV was not tuned correctly and did not work. The pillows were so thin we had to fold them in half to sleep properly. Generally way too expensive for the tarrif charged.

    Reviewed 25 January 2013

    This is probably the worst place in NZ to stay :( We stayed a night only because we didn't want to drive from Auckland North Shore to the race track early in the morning. We got there and they had to look for our room key.....I thought the room is nice and comfy as it's only for one night's stay and I'm not a fussy person. On inspection though, there was some white substance on my pillow case. It didnt look like an old stain, it seemed like the linen wasn't clean. On further inspection we found something that looked like dried blood on the sheets. Not saying it was, but again it wasn't only a stain so obviously they couldn't be bothered changing the linen after the previous people stayed there. Also they had a band playing but we were told we won't hear it from our room. Now, I love local NZ music, but not when I want to sleep! Yes, we heard it, loud and clear, no need to go to the bar for that. All in all, it really was the worst place I have ever stayed. And more depressing, my husband wrote an email to the people with our complains and sadly, they didn't even feel like responding or apologising or anything like that.
