Reviewed 1 December 2016 via mobile

We booked this motel online after booking flights. The only information we needed was that it was close to where we needed to be to meet some people. The photos looked good, the price was great and it had free internet.
On arrival, we were greeted and settled quite quickly. I think it is owned and run by the owners, so a bit of a personal touch.
Just around the corner (walking distance) is Mt Eden Road where there are convenience shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.
The rooms are sparsely furnished but with enough amenities to be comfortable.
There is space to park your car. Reasonably quiet and close to most things.
If I came back would I stay here again? Yes, I would!

Disgusting place. The armchair next to our bed hadn't been vacuumed in months. The floor was dirty, not vacuumed in the corners. The hot water is well over the recommended temperature. I had a fall getting out of the shower due to the hot water and slippery floor. I fractured a rib. When I told the owners all they could say was: That hasn't happened before. Not are you okay or anything like that. The sign outside said very quiet. IT IS NOT. Cars coming and going at all hours of the night. Car doors banging, bedroom doors banging. This place is a disaster. We have stayed in the past, but never again. This has really gone downhill. It needs a serious makeover, or sack the cleaner. Even if a place is old doesn't mean it can't be clean. The table in the room was glass and was just sitting on the base. Not held on with anything. When I hurt myself I leaned on the edge to get up and the glass nearly came with me. The place is an accident waiting to happen.

I would not recommend this motel. It was run down and very drab. To make things worse the reception attendant was curt...... certainly not helpful and friendly. The bedding did not look clean although the bed itself was comfortable. I definitely would not recommend this motel.

Not only is this the single finest establishment in NZ, offering the best facilities with friendly staff but it is also an experience to remember for a lifetime. It holds a special place in all of our memories and really emphasises the point that sometimes it is not about the destination, but about the journey. 5 star. A+++

Room Tip: Avoid room 1, the toilet door swings open without notice

We booked via AA a quiet room. The motel has around 28 Units and when we arrived, we again asked the Owner for a quiet room to which he agreed to.
We got a ground floor room and when we entered the curtains in the room were closed so we went to bed, only to be woken up at 2.00am when a family entered their room above us. Next to our room was the iron staircase. ..very noisy. Why didn't he offered us a quiet one, as only 4 units of 28 were occupied? Both owners weren't very friendly either. The motel itself is 1967style. You have to wait 20 minutes between showers so the hot water can reheat, but that's all fine except we couldn't bloody sleep, as the same happened at 7.00am when the family checked out. Very very bad customer service and hospitality
