We stayed at the Park View Motor Lodge for a night as part of a work trip. Service at reception was very friendly, and the rooms are well appointed. As others have mentioned, we received a complementary newspaper and there is free wifi (although I found it very slow).
The room I stayed in was a good size, with plenty of storage and I was quite surprised to find a small kitchenette. The room was well equipped, with a 32inch TV, a spa bath and a heat pump. The room also had great views of the Waikato Stadium - in fact, I could see parts of the pitch from my room.
As others have also mentioned, the Speights Ale House is very close (and is recommended), as are two supermarkets.
One thing to bear in mind for light sleepers is that the room has bifold doors opening up to a balcony . . .which would be absolutely fantastic on a summer's day, but boy, the wind does whistle through it during a southerly. However, units that don't face southerly shouldn't have any problems.
The biggest disappointment for me about Park View was that on checking out, the resident tabby was far more interested in being fed and refused to let me pat her.
