We booked online a Standard Studio without much research. On arrival we were told that the unit was at the back of the restaurant block in a quite area of the complex. It been came clear that these units are extremely small. Ideal for one person but not for two with travel luggage.They had been renovated and very clean but...

Thank you Lordsnz for your comments and rating. We accept that our Standard Studio's are small and while some traveler's are happy to accept an "economical" approach to their travel budget it is not everyone's idea of having a good holiday. We would welcome questions from potential clients before they booked their accommodation to help ensure they had all the...

Four of us arrived on dusk with no booking. Very accommodating hosts. Their attached restaurant was booked out but they gave us the option of choosing from the menu for room service or booking us another restaurant. Even to the point they would drop us there. We opted to eat in & it was a perfect night. Food & service...

Location is within walking distance of estuary walkway, esplanade adjoining beach, restaurants and at west quay. We cycled along the road adjoining the beach on West Shore, nice ride along coast, watched sail boat racing, surfers,...

Studio apartment was very spacious with a lovely little deck to have a beer on. Nice comfy bed, good sized bath in a large bathroom, all very nicely refurbished. Place was easy to find. All of the staff we met were friendly and helpful, not just the reception staff. In terms of the price I got a lot more than...

for the price this motel was fantastic after travelling all around the north island and staying at hotels that boasted service and had the price tag to match to find a venue that had a modest price that surpassed its price was refreshing. The service was great the spa bath refreshing and the cleaning immaculate.

The motel was clean, management friendly but I felt the unit needed modernising/updating for the price paid.Nothing comfortable to sit on in lounge , very standard a second fan would have been handy as it was hot at night and there was no air conditioning.

We stayed two nights in a two bedroom unit that was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The hosts were so friendly and hospitable. We were there for the Mission Winery Concert and they had organised a bus for guests and gathered everyone together for a glass of bubbly before we left. The unit was spacious and quiet - even the...

We recently returned from almost two weeks traveling in New Zealand. I had done lots of research to find and book lodging online before we left home.

Stayed there for 4 nights around Christmas 2013. Units were alright but nothing wonderful. Not quite enough car parking. Only one car park per unit and when we were there the Manager let someone park their boat in one park. As the Motel was fully booked that meant there was always one car park too few. The Manager didn’t seem...

Thank you for your comments and we are sorry we didn't resolve your parking issue the way you would have preferred but we thought by offering you another park in front of our car shed would have helped. Sometimes too a client can have a visitor for a period and occupy another clients parking space, in such situations it can...
