Cheap & cheerful - No complaints

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Jan 2018
Budget accomodation that was all I wanted. Decor needs updating but otherwise I was more than happy to stay. Really good comfortable beds. Great TV selection and free reliable wifi. The unit booked was spacious and well appointed containing a separate bedroom (not sure if it was one of a kind). Very pleasant helpful owners. I'd like to rate this as at least 3.5+. Rated "average" as its not quite a 4/VG but certainly deserves a little more than a simple 3.Warning: Note that the playground/pool area doesnt appear to be available for use and If traffic noise is an issue this will probably not be the best choice for you... for me the traffic was not an issue.

      convenient to town BUT the minute we opened the door it was like stepping back in time, shabby, frayed carpet, pokey fridge corner and very small bathroom (toilet, hand basin and shower in the size of a walk in wardrobe. Lounge curtain hanging off track.Everything looked clean, comfortable bed etc. lots of road noise as it is on main Ohaupo Rd. Staff friendly but a little difficult to communicate with. Overall In bad need of modernising along with the grounds. Swimming pool out back empty, with green netting over it, looked like hadn’t been used in a few years. Overall if you are desperate for accomodation, it will suffice.

      this unit is handy to town, the shower was a bit trigger happy, but it is a well cleaned, if not well maintained, unit. no need to go to the next town if this is the last available......unless your really fussy, (or have plenty of time)

      Room tip: on a main road so a bit of traffic noise in our unit

      Please do not book a room in this motel we had the unfortunate experience of staying here last Saturday the 26th of August. It is like stepping back into the 70's and that looks like when the last maintenance would have been. First of all the lady at the desk argued that we had only booked a single room on line lucky we could bring up confirmation on phone a twin room double bed and a single in fact probably not so lucky should have moved on then. The sheets are thread bare and the beds as old as the hills. The towels also thread bare and no flannels. The water trickles out of the shower.
      In one review they mentioned the oven sitting out the back of the unit and quess what it is still there that review was in May. I developed a severe allergy that night and since then have had swollen eyes and wheeziness so bad that I have had to take time off work. This place needs to be gutted and rebuilt to a proper standard. Love the broken tired cane chairs out side each room come on smarten your act up you charge enough for a run down health hazard.

      Room tip: Don't book.

      This is my second visit to Park Lodge - 1st being a few years ago and I remembered it being very basic, but acceptable.

      This visit, a two years on, it was a shame to see that the owners obviously do not care for their property - the pool and children playground were still not in working order - should be removed! The grounds were STILL over grown.

      The units that we stayed in were outdated and seemed unclean. We had asked for a unit with a full kitchen, but when we arrived, the oven had been taken out (probably a fair while ago) and was part of the patio furniture. In it's place was a cheap two hob stove top - not acceptable.

      I'll add this to my list of stay aways.

      Room tip: Choose another motel if you really want a good room!
