I was horrified when we first arrived. The motel is on an ugly business road surrounded by 3 supermarkets and car showrooms. It feels like a us strip mall in the Midwest. After 6 weeks touring NZ I had finally seen ugliness. The motel isn't a pretty sight either looking like a down at heel public housing estate. The room was very small for a motel, the beds were very soft and there wasn't even a bar of soap provided. And the room was full of mosquitoes (because the cleaners leave the doors open when they clean). After a beautiful motel in Taupo for less money we were depressed as we stayed 5 nights here because of WOMAD. I should add the owners were on holiday and the acting person in charge didn't seem terribly clued in. I am not sure what chemicals were used cleaning but during my time there I developed a really bad dose of rhinitis and a seriously painful throat.
To be fair there were some good things: we were given 2 sachets of plunger coffee each day; the internet for one device only was unlimited and the shower was excellent. And we did discover we were very close to the park for womad and to the centre of town.
