The motel is a bit overpriced in my
Opinion, given that Internet is not included and that it was further from the bay than its competitors.
But that's also a good thing. It's quiet, and the rooms are very clean. At first, service was good! We arrived there late-ish on a weekday evening and right away reception pointed us in the direction of cafes.
However, upon checkout, I discovered that I was double charged. Once for our stay and once for another couple's stay. It wouldn't have bothered me so much if
Peter, the guy at reception, hadn't been so rude and insistent that I was wrong. I pulled up my Internet banking to show him that I had been double charged, and even then he refused to relent even though Tresori Akaroa was next to both charges! I didn't want to be argumentative, but if I hadn't been, he wouldn't have realized his error.
In the end, I got a half assed apology that, unfortunately, soured the experience for me. It really didn't have to be that dramatic. I'll probably stay elsewhere next time.
