It was very comfortable and affordable and soo close to everything in town. The receptionist was also very kind and helpful. :)
Nothing, it was disgusting dirty and cold. Freezing cold 2 degrees
The room was freezing with a broken cello taped up heater. It was the same temperature inside as outside 2 degrees. It had started to snow on the desert roadelly of road so we thought it safer to stay the night. The room was smelly and mouldy and dirty. We got another blanket out of the cub board which had brown staining which looked like Pooh. We slept with all our clothes on, the electric blanket was a single on a double bed. We had it on full, but the bed was so damp and cold , it never had a chance to warm the bed up. The motel on the outside looked reasonably, but the inside is disgusting and I am embarrassed that tourists think this motel is acceptable accomodate in NZ.
The staffs were really good. The property is better than what it shows in the photos and a great value for money.
The cigarette ash tray with cigarettes sitting on the desk and was not cleaned or removed.
The room were large and very comfortable. The price is really reasonable and cheap. It really satisfying staying here.
Location, free parking.
Electric blanket did not work, no shampoo and conditioner, curtain torn, the place was old, dark and tatty, the beds were much too soft
