    The spa bath was welcome after being out all day. It was clean and well serviced. Pity about the neighbouring hotel across the road having excessively loud music until 3.30am. I know it was beyond the Aotea msnagement to do anything but no sleep was not great!

    Road noise due to being in the unit close to the road. Quite busy from 5am. The bed was too soft. No handtowel hanger in bathroom.

  • Older travelers

    the big bath. extremely comfortable bed, spaciousness.

    road nois, first staff member i encountered wastn that helpful - attention was on a personal phone call. An outside seat would have been good.

    a huge jaccuzzi within a middle sized room; tea kitchen pooly equipped; noise from an adjacent main road

    best in class. proximity of cafe parnells is a great asset.

    beds far too soft for healthy comfort

  • Older travelers

    Room was well appointed and attractive. Close to town.

    Spa appeared clean but jets left scum and bits of a feather boa from a previous visitor. Concerns about hygienne.

  • Older travelers

    The close proximity to the facilities in the town and the complimentary internet connection.

    Nice place to stay. Used as a stop over traveling up NZ & found it to be comfy & clean.

    Possibly a little out of town center although has fast food & shops close by.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    It was very well appointed, and had excellent space in the unit

    Not sure about the massive spa bath in the actual living area, instead of in the bathroom

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Well appointed rooms. Comfortable beds. Fairly convenient to city centre.

    Big bath in bedroom. No access to lightswitch from bed in living room.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Large room, cleanliness, every convenience on hand

    Loke most motels in nz they advertise they have sky but as an international visitor I would expect that to include a news channel E.G. cnn. Nz seems to close at the weekend as far as international news is concerned.

    Looked fairly new so was in good condition, very nice room, the bed was awesome.

    Bit pricey compared to other towns I have stayed in.

    Fantastic friendly staff. Amazing room! In fact rivals some swanky hotels we have stayed in. Love the fact we were able to get room service which was prompt. The bath was HUGE! The bed super comfortable. Love the fact we didn't have to pay for internet and it was in our room, as many hotels either charge or you have to go to hot spots to access internet. I could not fault the motel except for one silly thing (see below). We would highly recommend the motel and would love to come back again. (It was so nice that we decided to stay in for dinner rather than go out!)

    There just needed to be more milk in the fridge.
