This place is one of those old motels built in the late 70's early 80's which have only had a minimal amount done to them since opening so is now starting to show its age.
The window catches were starting to corrode away in places and the shower water temperature ranged between hot and burning but just right was very elusive.
Also some of the cleaning was a bit lacking with mould and mildew on the roof around the shower area.
However on the positive side the location is good being about 2 minutes walk to the beach and town and at NZ$110 a night for 3 people it was okay value.
So if you are looking for economical but not flash then maybe this place will suit you.
