“close to beach”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Stayed one night recently with last minute booking. Had one bedroom unit on floor level (2 levels), rooms and linen clean and adequate, tv, fridge, microwave, kettle in lounge. Provided continental breakfast in price which was good. Good pressure in shower, ranchsliders stack to open giving larger door opening.

Hosts very accommodating with my check in arrangements as I was checking in very late. Host, "biker" friendly given the noise my bike made upon leaving the next morning at 8.30am. I would stay again.

Loved the 25 steps to the beachfront! Café and diary opposite motel. Main town centre also within close walking distance, possibly 50 steps!

The in room blurb talks of this property providing the basics and it does that well. Clean, heaps of hot water and acceptable rooms. The rooms are small and offer no privacy at all. The location is fabulous - just a few steps to the beach in one direction and to town in the other.

With a bit of TLC the property could be so much better. Tidying up the parking area would be a good start and then a general spruce up would do wonders.

Stayed 2N in an upper room with a peak of the beach which was a bonus. Comfortable bed and very peaceful room back from the road. Clean unit with new towels given despite us hanging them up to save the environment. Good shower pressure in bathroom but nowhere to put soap or shampoo. Glasses, mugs and teaspoons provided along with Microwave but no other plates or utensils. Would have liked to wash our breakfast dishes but no d/w liquid and as previous reviewer said, bathroom basin not acceptable/hyienic for such a purpose. Free Wifi available but at tables by the office. Lovely staff who were friendly and welcoming. Thank you.

Fridge was louder than a V8 After putting bunk mattresses onto the bed it was a bit better.Great to have a tea towel but to wash dishes in the bathroom is not good (only tap or sink available)No sky no issue but tv 1- 2 and nearly 3 is poor. Better to have no tv.Very very basic at a not basic price.Stayed in much better for less.

This motel advertises free wifi in all rooms. The first thing was That to guarantee Wi-Fi reception I had to have the more expensive room near the office. This was the only room that they reckoned the Wi-Fi would work. then I was given a $2 voucher which enabled 5 min of Skype time only. I was given another 2 $5 vouchers, that the service was intermittent as well so I gave up.
As having Wi-Fi access was the reason I booked this hotel, I was very disappointed.

Reviewed 17 July 2012

We stayed here last minute after driving around - this hotel stood out in the street (after dark) with lighting, looking clean and welcoming. The owner Richard was friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and well supplied. It was very quiet and just a stone's throw from the beach so no noise from the late nighters on the main drag. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, we stayed in a queen unit which would have slept another person if required. I noticed they had double room units and a backpack type accommodation as well. If you are looking for a nice place to eat, we would recommend Blonde (just across and down from the ferry) - excellent food and staff - we had dinner one night - you can have either chef cooked meal (the chef is called Paul - very impressed) and returned to sample the lunch menu the next day. It was the best meals we ate in our trip to NZ

Room Tip: No pool (close to the beach) or fitness centre
