The motel claims to offer "luxury accommodation", whereby the term "luxury" is relative. For me, "luxury" has to include A/C, even if you don´t need it, and the furniture and decor must be in pristine condition, which it isn´t (any more) at the TRESORI. We stayed here for three nights; one in unit 8, a one-bedroom unit, and two in unit 9, a studio. Although unit 9 is smaller and slightly less expensive, we actually preferred it, as it was possible to watch the flat-screen TV from the bed. The TV in the bedroom of unit 8 is still the older type. The carpet in unit 9 was also less soiled. I don´t mean that the motel is dirty - definitely not, but there are signs of normal wear and tear. The motel still offers a very good standard. It´s true that the price is relatively high, but the supply of good accommodation in AKAROA is limited, so the prices are in accordance with supply and demand. Other reviewers have complained about the lack of privacy on the ground floor, so ask for a room on the upper level. The motel is very near to restaurants and cafés. There is minor noise pollution from the road, the school and swimming pool over the road. We would definitely stay here again.
