Reviewed 27 October 2009

The amenities were average to okay and this would be fine if the lady (owner/operator) made you feel less like an inconvience than a person who pays her way.

She was most unhelpful and lacked knowledge when you asked her any questions. My husband helped another patron staying her with info on a rental car and we don't even live in NZ.

I won't be staying here again, and there are plenty of other motels in the area.

Reviewed 6 May 2009

The facilities were average. Effectively, the room was large but not a warm environment and the single beds underneath the window were uncomfortable due to the draft coming through. It appeared to be clean.

The problem with this motor inn is the owner/operator. The woman woke us up early - we ignored as we were sleeping, came back half an hour later, opened the door which happened to be unlocked (due to the early morning departure of one of our party to go to the airport), she then peered through the window and came back yet again, accusing us of having an additional person staying which was entirely untrue and had been explained upon booking. We left at 1015am, 15 minutes after the ideal time frame at which time she accused us of having people coming and going...It's a motel!!!! This lady spoilt our stay through her complete lack of understanding of customer service. There were no electric blankets on the two single beds and small things like tissues were not included. The word officious springs to mind.
