Room was very good with two large beds, the queen bed was a little worn but was a comfortable sleep. Bathroom was new and clean. Internet was availalble at no charge but usage limited. Motel was close to supermarkets for those who need supplies and is located on the main road into town that has several resturants. Unfortunately I had...

Basic room with basic level of comfort. Main doors are locked at 10pm so you must climb over a small wall in the car park to walk to a rear entry which your room key gives access through. This was advised to me at check in but I would think this would not work for people with limited mobility..

Staff were friendly and room was spotlessly clean. The price was pretty reasonable and the bed was comfortable. The hotel could just do with a bit of an update. Easy to find on the main road into town and opposite a supermarket for supplies.

Thank you for your taking the time to provide feedback. I am glad that you found our rooms clean and tidy. Our housekeepers do a great job. I note your comment about the hotel being dated. It is an older hotel but we have renovated many bathrooms and our renovation program is ongoing. Thanks again.

Shorter drive today made shorter by not visiting Dawson Falls on Mt. Taraniki because of very thick cloud cover. Arrived early afternoon, staff very friendly and obliging, shown to our room and then walked a short flat walk into town. Had lunch in the Rutland Arms after walking through town down to the river mouth and back. Missed the riverboat...

I love the feeling of the hotel, I think it was built in the 1960s? It has that dated but hip charm about it. I think the staff are friendly. This time I had no choice but to stay in a budget room. The room was dated but large and right next to the lawn and the swimming pool. WHen...

Thank you for your feedback. I was disappointed to hear that you had a few issues whilst staying with us. Even though it was a very busy time for us we like to think that we treat all guests the same. I apologize for the wifi dropping off, we are currently installing ultrafast broadband so that should improve. I have...

The whole hotel needs a bit of a makeover as it is outdated. The beds are comfortable and the staff were friendly enough. Internet was average. I chose not to have breakfast as the dinning room was very bland, just a big open room with no ambiance at all, I prefer a room which has direct access outside to which...
