Very clean and tidy room, larger than normal size bathroom though signs indicate some TLC in order, eg mould developing on the bathroom ceiling, shower leaking underneath glass panels. The addition of a Sky Decoder and multi channels being available is great. It is a busy motel, fully booked for the 2 night duration I stayed. Windows have security stays...

Due to diet restrictions I needed self catering facilities. Not having high expectations before I arrived this accomodation has exceeded all my expectations. Clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet. It has free wifi so great for business users. It's in a really convenient location. Great access to other locations in the area.

Very friendly host. Very comfortable and clean unit. Great shower pressure and lovely spa bath. Only spent one night while attending a family reunion but would definitely stay again. Close to City and Waikato Stadium.

It's a typical motel nothing out of the ordinary, no pool, no spa but you can get a room with a spa bath. The cooked breakfast was small and cold, the poached eggs were hard and it's not nice having rubbery toast had trouble cutting it. The beds was not comfortable for us but might be great for someone else...

Have stayed here a few times and it has been consistent every time. The rooms are spacious with a good size bathroom. What we have noticed here is that the rooms are very clean even to the point that remotes for TV are clean and placed in cloth bags. It's this kind of detailing which we often find lacking in...

Motel was OK and clean, large enough room with all the necessary furniture and bath room. No problem to check in before 2 PM. Just did not feel comfortable because of missing nice outdoors to look at, sort of dark not enough windows and privacy issue.

Although not especially appealing from the road, this motel is spotlessly clean with good-sized rooms and comfy beds. The hosts are friendly and charming. Decor is modern with clean lines. There is a guest laundry and rooms are very suited to disabled folk as they are spacious and offer shower rooms rather than stumbling in and over a bathtub. Nearby...

One of the best motels we've stayed in lately. Fantastic sized room, warm, and very clean. Receptionist was very nice, especially when our 8 year old locked us out (be careful with this as once the door is shut you need your swipe card to re-enter). Only negative is that there was no coffee for the plunger, just one coffee...

Easy check-in, modern clean room. 1st night was great. 2nd night not good - hubby got a cut on his wrist from a broken glass bedside table when he reached down to plug in his phone charger. Then when I got into bed under the covers I sat on a screw - random! And as an added bonus noisy people...
