The hotel is very comfortable indeed. With nicely sized rooms and living areas as well as a well equipped kitchen. 3 of us stayed in the motel, with 2 in the master bedroom and one on a single bed in the lounge. Cleaners are very efficient and effective which is very positive during a stay of more than a couple of nights. The motel is on the long distance side, in terms of walking distance to Riccarton mall, but parking is ample so not really an issue in the area. The main thing is that the Shower was extremely bad. The water pressure was very very poor and at times was little more than a dribble. This was the only negative thing about the motel but it's something that sticks in the memory when you barely feel clean after showering. But as I say, this was the only thing, and in general the place was great. Owner is also extremely friendly and helpful!
