Cons: Breakfast
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The very obliging staff
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: staff were friendly
Cons: Room looked nothing like what was advertised on your website. Ranch slider to balcony very hard to open. Lucky my husband is a builder and was able to open it. Fan in the bathroom did not work properly. Mold all round the shower etc. Not very clean at all. Very run down, Room condensates over night, not a healthy environment to be in. No air conditioning like was advertised. Restaurant not open for breakfast oh right yes we could have room service and we did not even get told the restaurant was open for dinner, one of the main reasons we booked, Overall very very disappointing. Will not stay there ever again, should have booked across the road like we originally were going to do but then we saw the restaurant facility at this hotel. We will not be recommending this as a place to stay, staff were lovely tho. Not a good experience sorry.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful period hotel, magnificent stairways , light fittings etc. Staff friendly and helpful. For example, they allowed us to top up our water bottles from their bar chilled-water tap. Free off street parking Basic continental breakfast included in price and you could pay for cooked items Great central location
Cons: This is a magnificent 1927 hotel that shows its age but at a reasonably matched price. If you accept this, you will enjoy it! For example, our bathroom was a bit basic with a sliding door that did not quite cover the door space.
4.2 Okay

4.0 Okay
Pros: Centrally located
Cons: Very shabby interior, that needed a good vacuuming. The stair carpet was very unclean. The shower in our room had an empty soap dispenser. The shower had red mould algae in crevices of shower...ugh. Toilet was stained. Dust everywhere. There were a pile of used towels near our room when we arrived and were still there when we left next day. Very very substandard conditions
1.0 Poor
Pros: Absolutely Nothing
Cons: We have been four weeks in NZ and this was the most disappointing place. In our room really nothing was clean, everywhere dust and dirt - only the bed sheets were clean. The whole place is completely outdated and messed up with so many things that don’t fit together and that are unnecessary. For us it was like a night in a hoarders hell.

Featured amenities include a business center, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Event facilities at this apartment consist of conference space and a meeting room. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.0 Good
Pros: The view across the street from the river was nice, but there didn't seem to be much else other than private homes in the area. There seemed to be plenty of parking available onsite. The floor of the shared kitchen was being scrubbed by a woman on her knees when I arrived, so I think their level of cleanliness is good. I used the kitchen to make a salad with ingredients I brought with me and fixed microwave popcorn later. The refrigerator in my room was convenient for storing food and wine I brought with me, and the electric kettle and two mugs allowed me to make instant soup, tea and cappuccino. The bathroom was lovely! It was large, clean and had a huge tub with glass shower enclosure.
Cons: I stayed in the Riverside Suite, which was a mistake. It is right on the street, which is the only way to have a view of the river, and very noisy. It's actually the main highway that goes through town. In addition, the room (it's not a suite) has seen better days. There were rips in the wall covering, the chair was well-worn and the room just generally had a rundown appearance, even though the bedspread looked new. The bed offered the choice of sleeping on the mountain peak in the center or in one of the two valleys on either side. The original owners, Ann and Dion, have apparently sold the motel, and the new owners don't seem to be living up to the rave reviews that my old guide book gave.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The pool and spa good with family
Cons: I booked the early check in at 10 but they didn’t get the message we still had to leave and come back at 2
8.0 Excellent

8.0 Excellent
Pros: -Cute folded towels -Quiet -,big comfy bed - good value for money - good location for me - good kitchen facilities with full stove & good size fridge

6.0 Good
Pros: Room was an adequate size and clean. Full Sky tv was a bonus (even though the Chiefs lost). Could back car up to the door which made unloading and loading of luggage very easy.
Cons: I am used to a firm bed at home because of a bad back and the one at the motel was softer than I am used to so consequently I was stiff and sore in the mornings, but the motel was not to blame.
2.0 Mediocre
Cons: Ants in kitchen area
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Bed was really comfortable and a good shower. I was travelling as a quick overnight for work, so to be honest, view and facilities were secondary to a decent bed and shower and offroad parking for the car. And this place is perfect for that
Cons: I'd have to be getting pretty picky here - the liquid soap in the shower was a bit average and it took a while for the hotwater to run through to the basin.
