Our room was very clean the day we arrived. But it was very cold and the tiny 4-bar radiator heater didn't heat the room much. The duvet wasn't very warm. We left a message for the maid the next day after spending the night a bit cold with a rug from our car and our big winter coats thrown over the bed. The maid gave us a good little fan heater and an extra duvet and blanket. There's no wifi which we think should be pretty standard these days, although I see from another review that they had it - it wasn't advertised anywhere. There's a laundry service - the owners do your washing and drying for you and charge you $8 - but there is no other way of doing your laundry on site. Kiwis are not happy about letting other people do their laundry for them. Smaller niggles were that there was no mirror next to a power point, so I couldn't see to use my hair dryer. There was no hair dryer provided, nor an iron or ironing board, although I am sure they would have been cheerfully supplied had we asked. Another niggle is that the light outside the unit was very bright, and the curtains not very thick, so the room was infused with light all night. The bed was hard, but then they always seem to be these days in motels. We would not stay there again.
