Amazing servicePosted Feb 19, 2015
For the price, everything is excellent. It is clean, comfortable and the location was half way between the airport, and town, which was perfect for a business trip. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. In a flurry I had left my phone in a taxi, and they did everything in their power to help get it back (reviewed security tapes to see the taxi company so we can call, when that didn't work sorted through logos to see which one I recognized (not being from NZ)). The taxi driver got in contact, and dropped it off at 11pm (reception closes at 10). After all this I was in such a rush that I couldn't check in until after some commitments, which was also 11pm, but they accommodated me. I was visibly stressed during this ordeal, and the staff were so friendly and comforting. I so very much appreciated the extra effort from the staff, and will always come back when visiting

No sleep!Posted Feb 2, 2015
Staff here are wonderful and friendly. The rooms are old and tired along with the linen which had stains. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everyone in adjoining rooms including the room upstairs where the room creaks everytime anyone walks around. The rooms have no air conditioner, only a fan The pillows in my room were so rock hard and thick that they were impossible to sleep on I travel for work every second week and have stayed in hundreds of hotels and motels and am not fussy, but I actually got about 2 hrs sleep a night staying here Such a shame as the staff were lovely. Rooms are very budget and old, cleaners do the best they can with what they have. Rugby 9s was on and people in adjoining rooms were playing music until 4 am. Tried to call reception, no answer

Motel close to NewmarketPosted Jan 2, 2015
Cons: The overall decor,and a good scrub down of the rooms wouldn't go amiss
Location: Pretty central though still need to take taxi. Bus stop opposite motel.
Disappointing stay. Dirty and hair in bathroom. Outdated and really in need for a good renovation job.

Good Basic motelPosted Nov 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
3 night stay at motel. Plus - parking, close to Newmarket shops, close to main motorway, friendly host, basic motel with everything you need. Minus - overpowering motel room spray that gave me a headache, some basic maintenance needed in room, no re-stock of milk for hot drinks, no DO NOT DISTURB sign, no sky channels even though indicated in motel book.

moldy, damp and cockroaches.Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: The location and the double beds looked new.
Cons: Every thing!!!!!!
Location: Near ASB show grounds.
our room felt damp, strong mold smell, over powered cleaning product smell (I guess to try and hide the mold smell. the carpet was all rippled, there was no kitchen sink to wash dishes, Im guessing you had to use the bathroom sink yuck!!!! The back of the drapes were covered in mold, there was mold on the bathroom windows, the shower pressure was so intense I couldnt shower my children, It was like stinging needles my 11 year old said you could not turn down the pressure as the water went scalding hot. There was a Cockroach in with the tea bags, no lounge chairs to breast feed my baby only the bed or dinning chairs. you had to bang the toilet to stop it from flushing, the tap in the bathroom was not attached to the sink so when you went to turn it on it came up with your hand. The skirting boards behind the toilet were all split and damaged as well as around the unit itself. our hair drier had a broken handle, I could go on but you get the picture. over all it smelt bad, was scruffy and moldy.
