Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 3 nights. Although the building dates back to the 1970s, the rooms are well presented and the staff are friendly and helpful. The kitchen units and bathroom are now showing their age and could do with updating, but they are kept clean,

We asked if we could leave our luggage but were told it wasn't possible. We asked if we could have a sea view due to being...

We thought this was a very clean and lovely place to stay, close to the ocean and parking outside the front door was really handy. There was even make up remover left with the toiletries provided! The free wifi was great as a lot of places don't seem to provide that in NZ...

A large double bed in the bedroom at the rear, mid bathroom and vanity unit, then the living room/kitchenette opens onto a small decking area from where you can glimpse the ocean.

Stayed here four nights and loved it. One block off the beach and a short walk to the main drag, close to everything yet just far enough to enjoy the quiet at night - I swear I heard tree frogs one night. I was in the one-storey section of the motel - big room, comfy king bed and seating area....

We chose this motel as one of the cheapest available, but it didn't feel cheap, and our experience didn't correlate with some of the negative reviews re cleanliness. I must admit I found the creaking Lockwood building sounds really strange even though I'd read about them previously, and Paul put us in the picture when we arrived ... weird! Bed...
